President Trump celebrated the return of the Big Ten college football conference as it worked to combat the coronavirus, and emphatically told the Pac-12 it was their turn to "get going."
"I want to congratulate Big Ten football.
Its return came after Trump publicly pressured the conference, which primarily consists of Midwestern teams, and even spoke directly with Commissioner Kevin Warren.
"I want to, in particular, I’ve been dealing with them, thank commissioner Kevin Warren for the great job he did.
He specifically thanked White House adviser Tim Pataki for doing a "great job" working with Warren on the issue.
