Trump Says He Will ‘Pressure’ Governors To Reopen Schools In The Fall

President Trump on Tuesday said that his administration would be “putting a lot of pressure” on US governors to reopen public schools in the fall, the NY Post reports.

“We’re very much going to put pressure on governors and everybody else to open the schools, to get them open. It’s very important,” Trump said at a White House event featuring health experts, educators and politicians on school reopenings.

“So we are going to be putting a lot of pressure on [governors] to open your schools in the fall,” he continued. “Everybody wants it. The moms want it. The dads want it. The kids want it. It’s time to do it.” Read more at the NY Post.

  1. Just withhold *all* federal funds from the states that stay in shutdown, if their daily covid19 fatalities 7-day moving average is below 15 per one million of population. If the Democratic governors want to sabotage the American economy, let them do it on their own dime. A simple rule. Easy to justify. Will undo the socialist-fascist power grab, and return the American lives back to normal.

    • I thought the GOP was supposed to be prolife? do you not see the Corona all around the world? ignoring the problem doesnt make it go away. maybe it’s time trump grew up and faced the situation and admit he was wrong. every step of the way he minimised and dragged his feet even to this day he doesnt wear a mask. (not that it needs to be said but before you go and say anything I voted for trump)

  2. It’s not so simple. I am definitely not pro-Democrat, but look at what’s going on in Israel where schools reopened right after Lag ba’Omer and that set off a huge uptick of Covid-19 cases. It spreads far more in the schools than at places of work because adults can be more careful, but the kids bring it home and it spreads to their families. We are not getting the message, else Hashem wouldn’t be testing us in this way. Maybe if we put an end to machlokes and get rid of the sinas chinam and lashon hara that brought about the churban, we will be zocheh to yeshuas haklal and yeshuas haprat. This is one situation where both Democrats and Republicans are correct: the other side does NOT have a good solution! Neither of them recommend the real solution: teshuva (bein adam lamokom, bein adam l’chaveiro and bein adam le’atzmo), tefilla and tzedaka. In terms of hishtadlus – wash your hands, where your mask and keep social distancing. That’s actually one part of teshuva bein adam le’atzmo – fulfilling the mitzvah of venishmartem…
