Trump says he will ‘pressure’ states to reopen schools this fall

President Trump just confirmed the rumors that he will begin strongly pressuring state governors to reopen schools for the fall term as states begin formulating plans for the school year.

Mandated lockdowns wreaked havoc on students progress nationwide, and many experts have expressed concern about a repeat scenario in the coming school year. Trump announced on Tuesday that his administration would “very much put pressure” to plan for reopening this fall.

“We don’t want people to make political statements or do it for political reasons, they think it’s gonna be good for them politically, so they keep the schools closed, no way,” Trump said. “So, we are very much going to put pressure on governors and everybody else to open the schools.”

Our country has got to get back, and it’s got to get back as soon as possible, and I don’t consider our country coming back if the schools are closed,” the president added. “Everybody wants it, the moms want it, the dads want it, the kids want it.”

Trump isn’t alone in his desire to get America’s children back to school. American Academy of Pediatrics President Dr. Sara Goza said in a Monday interview that the organization is backing the return to school as well. The APP’s official position is that “all policy considerations for the coming school year should start with a goal of having students physically present in school.”

“After weighing what we know about children and the coronavirus, we really strongly advocate that the goal should be to have students physically present in the school,” Goza said.

Coronavirus alarmists are still in favor of extreme lockdowns, however, and Democrat politicians are pushing back against a return to normalcy — despite the cost. Joe Biden’s coronavirus plan tepidly endorsed returning to school as well, but also made it clear that policy decisions should defer to “the experts.”

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who is himself a physician, pointed out: “For a time, there may have not been enough information about coronavirus in children, but now there are examples from all across the United States and the world that show young children rarely spread the virus.”

Additionally, 22 countries have reopened schools without experiencing outbreaks that could be traced to schools. That hasn’t stopped mainstream media outlets from criticizing Trump for pushing for reopening for the fall semester “even as the virus surges,” as CNN put it.

  1. Get schools open and businesses back to normal as much and as soon as possible. Enforce quarantines like in the olden days with small pox, diphtheria, scarlet fever, whooping cough and other contagious diseases like that.

    1. It is nothing but a scare tactic to keep control of Americans. Next it will be if kids don’t get back to school with a vaccine then the chip is next (if not given thru the vaccine). My grandson’s school said if any of them get the virus they will be put in isolation..not mentioning at home. Another way to separate parents from their kids to control us and our kids. Blue state not surprised. Dr. Fauci better tell China to get moving on the vaccine you and Gates paid them to make just like the virus. You two are sick. You should take the real vaccine that comes out of China first to show I’m wrong..not a placebo! 👿

  2. All children should go to school after teachers that teach lies are removed/ text book should all need editing to make sure they do not contain communist material

    1. Things like communism is good, Hitler was a good guy, the Spaniards were good, the Romans weren’t pagans, neither were the Greeks before Christ came. And such things like that home we can’t forget we’ve got to teach him about the Holocaust I’ve got to tell them the truth about the Holocaust how horrible it was and why and how it happened. What we’re seeing right now is the footsteps of the Holocaust a repeat you’re right we need to get the teachers out that don’t teach what is right. I applaud your answer

      1. Absolutely agree, this is not good for children, they need to get back to normal, so many children, are having depression and anxiety issues. Let’s make them happy and eager to learn and back with their school friends.

        1. I totally agree…also Dr. Fauci got billions creating this pandemic now pushing covid again funny right after Epstein handler got arrested for child trafficking and child abuse….trying to take the attention away from whats going down with these Frankenstein freaks…

    2. Absolutely get your kids OUT of the Public School Indoctrination factory NOW. The SCOTUS just opened the doors to school vouchers. You get to spend the government money for school for YOUR school choice, religious or charter. No cost to you at all. Get your child out of violent schools. Get your child a religious school. Get your child a school based on academic excellence. Public school kids can’t read, write or do first grade math. They only learn anti-American and anti-religion poison. Look at the punks protesting now. Demsnd your rights!

    3. Yes! It is long past time to get control of what our children are learning from Kindergarten through college.

  3. Absolutely, get the kids back in school, especially charter schools and all privately run institutions where the better education is achieved. Open the public schools as well.

    1. President Trump, we listened to Dr. Richard Bartlett last night. He has a cure for the virus. He said he sent you a paper on it. I hope you have read it or will soon.
      You are the best president in my lifetime. 81 years. Please pay attention to Dr Bartlett and get in touch with him.

    1. Ahhh! Climbing the walls are you?

      that was a joke okay I was picking on you a little kid I believe you’re right but we all have to look at the safety issues I work in a industry where we supply food for people who cannot get out and we have to wear face masks in every aspect of the building that we are in we have to wear gloves everything we handle has to be we have to use gloves we even have to take the time to sterilize your hands every once in awhile with hand sanitizer and I wash my hands at least 20 times a day at least I don’t count because I lost count I have it just you know we need to set up some standards if we’re going to do this.

  4. I agree that all schools should reopen. Also that the entire country should reopen as it was before corona virus and ONLY QUARENTINE THE ILL! Anyone who is not comfortable with opening up can self quarentine at their own discretion.
    What the Demoncraps are doing is against our Constitutional and civil rights!
    President Trump please put an end to this nonsense and make it an Executive order for the entire country to open with NO restrictions!

  5. There are children in this country who are safer in the schools than anywhere else. Many of these kids don’t have access to the internet. Many of them don’t get breakfast or lunch at home. We will take care of our kids. I am a janitor in a school district and everything gets cleaned and disinfected everyday. They should return to school. The virus does not affect them like it does the elderly.

    1. Many kids don’t get breakfast or lunch at home on the weekends because they live in one parent families (mostly moms) who don’t want to bother with meals or even opening a can of soup for lunch. There are too many moms more interested in their boyfriends or getting the next one instead of taking care of their kids! TOO many moms doing this!

  6. The sooner children are back in school full time the better! They are at little risk for disease, but at great risk to lose out on their needed education! Enough of the stupid political games! Get the children back to school!

  7. Yes put our children back in school!!They deserve an education. We can deal with what comes if a school has issues with outbreak. GO TRUMP GO AMERICA!!!We are a great country come what may we will prevail!!!

  8. Yep, there was a time that that the schools were ONLY closed for Summer Vacation, Christmas and State/National Holidays. Hence, we caught the measles, mumps, chicken pox and the common cold and were IMMUNIZED for life! You stayed home when you were sick and went back when you were cured. After the Salk Vaccine was approved, everybody in school got the Polio Vaccine in the early 50’s on a sugar cube as I recall. Made it thru 78 years including 20 months in Viet Nam (’67 – ’68)!!!!!!

    1. You sir are a great American!
      I remember the sugar cube myself. I missed Nam by about three months, but I enlisted to go.
      Never saw action oh, so I don’t consider myself a veteran. You were in the fix, and that makes you a hero to me thank you for your service.

  9. with the information provided by the President regarding schools, can he promise that there will be sufficient space between students and that they will be required to wear masks. if not, then he best re-think the starting and opening of schools. if i had a student, she/he would not be going to school until i received written and signed documentation from the school superintendent that my child would be in the best and most comfortable surroundings affordable for school.

    why not keep the schools system on the WWW until such a time comes that the doctors, scientists and researchers confirm that it is safe and reasonable for the school location to be conducted.

    1. Dr Empey
      How do you expect little kids struggling to read and write to learn school on the WWW? Are you suggesting that some of us should quit our jobs and stay home and watch them? Are some Americans not entitled to earn a decent living like others? Seems unAmerican to me.

    2. And WHEN might that be? The so called “experts” can’t seem to agree on anything. They keep giving the public conflicting information! We don’t have time to wait on the so called “experts” because, frankly, I don’t think they are experts!

    3. Do you know how dangerous it is to wear a mask for long periods of time. Oxygen levels decrease causing headaches, blackouts, and even death. Is this what you want for our children?

  10. Yes I agree that kids should return to school. They have been stripped of their education in the spring and stripped from their sports and camps and social activities for the spring and summer. It’s taking a toll on their psyche. Schools are now planning for only a portion of the students to return at certain times, this is going to make the COVID19 weigh on the kids minds on a daily basis worrying about this virus every day and why they aren’t in school that day, but maybe their siblings are – depending on if they break it ip by grades!! It’s nonsense! We can treat this as outpatients.

  11. Along with the opening of schools, it would be my advice to ensure that schools are also given the same protection against possible attack by armed law enforcement, search and seizure of any and all firearms and deadly devices xrays, and magnetic detectors.

  12. If we do not get our offspring back into school they will end up like Obama, Pelosi, and the rest of the Squad. That is ignorant of Economics, Science, Physics, and the rest of how the world actually works.

  13. As a teacher myself, I have seen the damage first hand to the students because of the closings of brick and mortar schools. I have also seen the students reunited over Zoom meetings and saw how they missed the interactions with the other students.

  14. Time to stop listening to the scare tactics . We need to have some kind of a normal life again..I believe this is all part of the Demos way to keep us captive….!!!Enough..!!

  15. I agree that we need to open the schools in the fall. Keeping schools closed will affect so many people including the School employees, the Working Mothers, and the children.

  16. I totally agree with the vision of the President. The gloomy portrayal of the opposition to me is destructive. We learn and fear sets us back.

  17. I think it’s time to reopen the school’s. I have grandchildren who are looking forward to going back so they can be with their friends It will also put people back to work. Lots of people depend on our schools for a living.

  18. Open the schools, now. Kids need the interaction with other kids to become reliable, well rounded, well informed adults. Staying at home makes the kids spoiled, lazy, and depressed. They need to be with kids their own age to learn how to get along with others.

  19. Absolutely open School! But have then set with many trained guards!

    This is part of a Takeover strategy. We need to recruit and prepare for action on many levels! Militias, neighborhood militias, ex- police and military to counteract the violence and chaos created to divide the races by treasonous forces!

    1. you are wrong, Trump is not racist, the left and Obama divided the country, All lives matter, especially the unborn, abortion clinics were deemed essential and the first month of March there were more kids aborted than the virus killed in Kentucky, it doesn’t matter who is President as long as babies are being killed everyday there will not be any peace on earth. Your left wants abortion in the last trimester, I will vote for Trump because our Democratic party has gone communist, Biden is incompetent and his VP will become a puppet for Pelosi who is crazy. It seems to me you are racist referring to white as red necks, I bet you didn’t have any trouble spending the stimulus check that Trump enabled you to receive. God Bless America and God Bless you!

  20. Kids are less likely to get that flu. Most of the people who have died from it had underlying illnesses. So you think we should all just stay inside our houses until it’s completely gone?! That won’t happen! More people died from the Spanish flu. More die from influenza every year or so than this flu! Many have recovered. Your hatred is sucking your brain dry. Be careful about that book by his niece. She thinks she has a great big ax to grind! You might consider taking a very long look into a mirror.

  21. The curricula and those committed to “common core” should be addressed as returning students to a toxic anti American environment would be counter productive…

  22. Absolutely, the children need the environment of other children and a setting that is familiar to them in order to return to a sense of normalcy in their lives. The fear mongering for political reasons need to stop now! We’re talk about our children now and their well being mentally so stop and think about what’s best for them.

  23. Schools, ALL schools, need to open for fall semester. If anyone gets sick, they need to be quarantined. DON’T quarantine those that are well. Children need to be with their peers, not with their parents 24/7.

  24. I so agree with you ,It’s history repeating itself self . The lift is so hungry for control they will lie and tell you stuff that is not true. We the people need to stand strong🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  25. Trump is very smart and has accomplished so much for our country, so sad that immigrants, and mobs want to destroy our history, the only race that has any right to protest is the Native Americans, we stole their land and killed their people, If people hate America, leave it I would gladly give up some tax money to send them to a better land but they will never be happy because they want to cause trouble. Good Bless the USA and may God reveal the truth to those that do not believe. God has the solutions to all the problems, we need to put God first again, make America Great again.

  26. Yes, I believe that the schools should be reopened to give all attending schools whatever their age to LEArn & be as educated as children from other countries. DON’T make the USA be the DUMBEST country of all! The virus has had its day and now is affecting mainly senior citizens. I am lucky and NEVER was bothered by it. It did not reach my neighbor & little reached my state, Arkansas. So I do say YES to opening the schools back up.

  27. Yes schools need to open. The children need to be properly educated, hopefully by non politicly biast teachers.

  28. I think it is safe enough that the schools should be open. The virus has not shone to be widespread in children. We need to get back to some kind of normalcy as soon as possible! This is the right decision! God will protect his children❤️🙏

  29. I WONDER IF RRUMP KNOWS THAT BIDEN IS NOW TRYING TO GET OUT OF HAVING A DEBATE, WONDER ALL OF THAT BLUBBER WENT WHEN HE SAID HE JUST COULDN’T WAIT TO DEBATE THE PRESIDENT!! DIRT BAG

  30. Has our President made any decisions that have hurt us since he has been in office? If he says the schools should be open in August, I have to agree with him. He is a lot smarter than I am. He has some of the smartest people on earth working to get details on every subject you can imagine. (the Heritage Foundation) They only give him the best information on any and all subjects. I’m sure opening of the schools is one of them.
