Trump Pressures Governors to Reopen Schools | NowThis

‘They think it’s gonna be good for them politically so they keep the schools closed, no way’ —President Trump says that he will ‘put a lot of pressure’ on governors tp reopen their schools in the fall.

In US news and current events today, President Donald Trump has expressed his intention to pressure governors into school reopening amid the coronavirus pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the entire economy, but school reopenings are among the biggest questions faced by America among the larger wave of COVID reopening. Reopening schools without a reopen play is a fool’s errand, because school reopenings are crucial to getting our economy started again, but if a school reopening means that students and faculty are less safe, we need a strong COVID reopening plan to make it work, and that hasn’t been the strong suit of President Donald J. Trump. Much like his behavior throughout the COVID19 pandemic, President Trump plans to leave the problem to governors, while simultaneously making their job more difficult by pressuring them, as he states in this video. There are many questions remaining about COVID recovery and COVID reopening, and none are more urgent than schools.

PENCE SAYS CDC WILL RELAX SCHOOL GUIDELINES Vice President Mike Pence said that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will relax guidelines for reopening schools amid the pandemic after Trump complained that the recommendations were too stringent. Trump has framed the continued school closures as a sign of political opposition. But reopening schools safely is complicated and expensive. [HuffPost]
