President Donald Trump held a conference call with major league sports commissioners on Saturday afternoon and said he thinks the NFL will be able to start its season on time in September, according to ESPN. 

Sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Adrian Wojnarowski that Trump hopes fans can attend games again by August or September. It remains unclear if medical experts would agree with that timeline amid the coronavirus pandemic.

After Trumps’s comments surfaced, California Gov. Gavin Newsom said during his daily news briefing that he does not think NFL teams nor fans will return to stadiums this fall.

“I’m not anticipating that happening in this state,” Newsom said. “Our decision…will be determined by the facts, will be determined by the health experts, will be determined by our capacity to meet this moment, bend the curve and have the appropriate community surveillance and testing to confidently determine whether that’s appropriate.”
