President Trump at a Monday press conference:
QUESTION: (INAUDIBLE) grapple with when and how to open their states what is the best advice from you on (INAUDIBLE)? TRUMP: Well, we want them to do it. We recommend that they do it as quickly as possible but safely. We want everyone to be safe and I think you are seeing that. You’re seeing a lot of governors get out and they want to open it up. Many are thinking about their school system not a long way to go in the school system right now for this season, for this year but I think you will see a lot of schools open up even if it’s for a very short period of time. I think it would be a good thing because as you see in terms of what this vicious virus goes after young people seem to do very well. Young people seem to do very well. So I know that there are some governors that aren’t necessarily ready to open up their states but they may be ready to open up their school systems. We will see but that is their choice. But the word is safety okay? Rapid but safety.
