Trump says he doesn’t want to give a date for reopening the economy
President Trump said he doesn’t want to give a date for reopening the country, even as he expresses a desire for that to happen as soon as possible. Mr. Trump has previously offered an Easter goal for relaxing social distancing guidelines and reopening businesses, before extending that to April 30. Governors ultimately control when businesses can reopen.
“I don’t like giving dates,” the president said during Wednesday night’s Coronavirus Task Force briefing.
The president said he will rely “very heavily” on his public health officials, such as Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx. Meanwhile, conservative pundits like Laura Ingraham have been urging the president to jumpstart the economy on May 1.
