Trump says he wants to ease up on coronavirus related shutdowns 'pretty soon' amid concerns about economy - updates

 
 
 

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Monday said his administration is looking at ways to ease economic restrictions it stressed just days earlier even as the U.S. braces for a jump in coronavirus cases and states tighten restrictions on people and businesses.

"I'm not looking at months," Trump said of the duration of social distancing guidelines that have led to school and business closures. "We will be back in business as a country pretty soon."

Trump’s suggestion comes as others are taking their most strict measures yet. On Monday, four U.S. states announced more rigid orders for residents and businesses, an International Olympic Committee member revealed this year's games would be postponed and U.S. deaths approached 600, according to the Johns Hopkins University data dashboard.

The federal government, Trump said, will use data "to recommend new protocols” to allow local economies to “cautiously resume their activity at the appropriate time."

Coronavirus:Trump signals growing impatience with coronavirus-related economic shutdowns

He did not say when those protocols would be rolled out as the coronavirus spreads across the U.S.

The remarks were a major departure from Trump's prediction just days ago that the guidelines could potentially be in place through the summer. Trump appeared to signal that parts of the country that are less hard hit could be placed under less strict guidelines than states like New York and California. 

At the same time, Trump admitted the outbreak will only get worse in the U.S. Trump said he agreed with his surgeon general’s prediction that the number of coronavirus cases would jump. 

“This is going to be bad,” Trump said. “We’re trying to make it so it’s much, much less bad.”

This has nothing to do with the American people or the American Economy. This is more about his ego and re-election Campaign telling the American people how strong his economy is. blah, blah, blah.

 

This man does not care about anyone except himself.

He found out  his hotels are shut down and wants them up and running regardless of how many people get sick and die.  As @ghost said he cares about no one but himself.  The country and everyone be damned.

Well one thing is for certain.  Dumpy Trumpy has little control over the states.  Our governors will protect us far better than the shit-for-brains president.

There is always more than one dick.  I wonder how Texans feel about this?  They might just get a new Lt. Governor.

As the Roman Empire got down, the Coronavirus can do it for USA if the administration do not follow his own health department recommendations.

I really want to know what he will do if he got infected  😕

I could imagine him saying " How he got the biggest crowd size concentration of virus per inch and proceed to photoshopped virus images, only to be Sharpied to illustrate how his antibodies (best ones ever) are shooting lazer beams to kill viruses(while making lazer sound effects.)

"States in the U.S. have significant powers to handle the crisis, with many adopting similar approaches...while others tackle the issue by giving power to local officials."
