Washington Post: Trump says he may soon push businesses to reopen, defying the advice of coronavirus experts
I know Trump's Tweets are discussed elsewhere but the headline needs it's own thread.

[link to www.washingtonpost.com (secure)]

President Trump, under growing pressure to rescue an economy in free fall, said Monday that he may soon loosen federal guidelines for social distancing and encourage shuttered businesses to reopen — defying public health experts, who have warned that doing so risks accelerating the spread of the novel coronavirus or even allowing it to rebound.

“America will again and soon be open for business — very soon,” Trump said at the daily White House news conference. “We cannot let the cure be worse than the problem itself.”

As he watches stock prices plummet and braces for an expected surge in unemployment, Trump has received urgent pleas from rattled business leaders, Republican lawmakers and conservative economists imploring him to remove some of the stringent social distancing guidelines that he put in place for a 15-day period ending March 30, according to several people with knowledge of the internal deliberations.

I agree cosmic forces are at work. It's a fierce battle. But I may not have the same end vision as you. There is plenty salvageable in the current system... and 5G cashless sure wouldn't be any better.

I've seen no evidence of the "virus".. just the media hype and these odd quarantines and shutdowns. No surprise that he would defy the ones who have been trying to remove him since day 1.

It's one of the only genuine white hat moves I've seen him make. The rest has been theater. And we still don't know if he'll reverse his position, as Geminis are so wont to do.

Let me explain how this conservative pro-life thing works.

Abortion: not OK

Risking the life of millions to reopen the economy: OK

Bringing the economy to a standstill would also put millions of lives at risk. Buy some Vitamin C and a facemask you Canadian ninny.

There is no reason to believe some version of this virus won't be with us again next year and the year after etc. We'll be bled to death if we take the current approach twice, I say go for it and God bless President Donald John Trump for having the balls to backtrack if/when he sees the current policy is doing more harm than good.

Trumps tendency to backtrack is both a weakness and a strength. More of a strength... and it shows the faction war that's going on behind the scenes.

Re: Washington Post: Trump says he may soon push businesses to reopen, defying the advice of coronavirus experts
Shutting everything down reveals the true state of health of a population. Americans are s sickly, diseased population - like many others. The ONLY way a viable population can be salvaged is to keep it shut down and given the population a chance to heal - even as large swaths drop over dead. A recurring sickness with seasonal fluctuations is not going to be more benign in an unhealthy population - certainly not this kind of sickness which is, essentially, a more virulent form of the flu - itself becoming increasingly deadly for many.

Simply putting everyone back to work will make matters far worse and will do nothing to address the health of the American people - unless the goal is simply to maximum kill them, which will be Trump's lasting legacy if he drives the beasts back to toiling away in their present state.

Stupid decision or someone is manipulating into making this stupid decision. Once the infection cases and death pile up and the hospitals are scenes of chaos and death he will have to backtrack and make an ass out of himself.
