Trump: Not Closing the Country if Second Wave Hits!

President Trump created a stir when he visited a Ford Motors plant that has been repurposed to make medical supplies. The press was caught up in whether or not Trump would wear a mask, as required by Michigan law and by Ford plant guidelines. But it was his position on how the nation will handle a possible second wave of the coronavirus that should have captured their attention.

When asked about a rebound wave that health officials think is likely either due to relaxed economic rules or just the natural cycles of viruses that return in the fall, Trump said we won’t go back to economic lockdowns.

Trump said:

“People say that’s a very distinct possibility, it’s standard. We are going to put out the fires. We’re not going to close the country. We can put out the fires. Whether it is an ember or a flame, we are going to put it out. But we are not closing our country.”

That was very good news for thousands of business owners across the nation, as well as workers who for whatever reason can’t access unemployment insurance.

As for the mask, President Trump had one in his hand as he addressed the press.  When asked if he wore the mask, Trump said:

“I had one on before. I wore one on in this back area. I didn’t want to give the press the pleasure of seeing it.”

He said he also wore goggles, which would have made for a great picture, but his unwillingness to give the press any satisfaction is understandable.

    if we keep closing the Country Economy. we will die of hunger. because our Country will have a economy like the great depression.

    It is not too kosher to say that the Country will not close , if another wave of the Virus hits us.
    If it does hit, then it is because we have opened our Country up too soon. I know that people
    are “stir crazy”, but sometimes you have to almost hog tie some people, because they want
    to be independent instead of being logical.

    I’m glad you won’t shut down the country again Mr.President! Now it’s taken everything away from us that include our freedoms. Of course Dr. Fauci took over the situation and put the spin on it which proved to be incorrect and now we have this. Totally unnecessary and I know you must feel really bad we lost so much. Losing people is a bad thing, but I had pneumonia and I could have died too. It’s one of those things but shutting down did nothing for us that was good!

    The emperor has no clothes, and is a complete and utter psychopath. He would rather watch millions die from preventable transmission of a deadly virus than appear weak, i.e. believe in science.
