Trump Says Some States Are Reopening TOO SLOWLY

(TheFreedomFlag.Com)- President Donald Trump has remained optimistic about the future of America and the country’s ability to start reopening economies. After being forced to abandon his plan to reopen the national economy by the Easter weekend, President Donald Trump has worked with White House advisers to come up with a state-by-state plan that ensures economies open responsibly and at a pace that works for them.

States governors were encouraged to take measures based on infection rates and hospital capacities, and while many states are already loosening lockdown restrictions, many are continuing their strict lockdown measures.

One example is Michigan, where Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer faces continued protests after signing three executive orders that extend lockdown measures by another month.

During a segment on Fox News on Sunday, in which the president was interviewed in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., President Trump expressed his belief that many states are simply reopening too slowly.

“Certain states are going to have to take a little more time in getting open, and they’re going that,” he told Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum.

“Some states, I think, frankly, aren’t going fast enough,” he added.

President Trump took specific aim at Virginia. “They want to close down until the middle of June,” he said.

“I really believe that you can go to parks, you can go to beaches…And I really think the public has been incredible. That’s one of the reasons we are successful,” he added.

Many states have been overly cautious about their lockdown measures. In Michigan, the initial lockdown order stopped people from being able to perform yard work, or work on their lawns. The supermarkets were banned from selling non-essential goods, meaning people couldn’t purchase gardening equipment.

It’s as if the politicians wanted people to not only be stuck at home but to be completely bored as well!

Trump explained how the United States has been successful in its efforts to combat the virus so far, citing the lower-than-expected projected death count. He said that the United States is expected to reach 80,000 or 90,000 deaths, which is less than expected.

In Virginia, the stay-at-home order has been extended to June 9, meaning residents have another month of job uncertainty and economic inactivity.
