I’m not going to pass judgment right now because the world is a bit of a mess,” he said in a video. “I will try to get you and yours at least 10 minutes of day care your families a night as we go through this unprecedented global event… I love you all. I hope you are all healthy and safe wherever you are, and I hope to see you all very soon. Take care of yourself,” he added.
