Trump says “no” to more lockdowns — Even if there’s a second wave

The media isn’t quite ready to let go of the coronavirus crisis, and if they could have it their way, Americans would stay locked up in their houses indefinitely.

However, President Trump just took the entire nation by surprise with the stunning announcement that “we’re not going to close the country” if a second wave of coronavirus arises.

Trump made the remarks while touring the Ford manufacturing plant in Ypsilanti, Michigan on Thursday afternoon. When reporters asked if he was concerned about the possibility of a second wave of infections stemming from reopening, Trump put an end to the speculation.

“People say that’s a very distinct possibility. It’s standard. And we’re going to put out the fires. We’re not going to close the country. We’re going to put out the fires,” he said.

“Whether it’s an ember or a flame, we’re going to put it out. But we’re not closing our country.”

New data is beginning to show that the collateral damage of the lengthy lockdowns could turn out to be much greater than the virus itself. Along with unprecedented economic devastation, lockdowns jeopardize the mental and physical health of millions of Americans.

The novel coronavirus is no longer an unknown factor, and the Trump administration’s efforts to exponentially expand testing, treatment and containment capabilities put the US in a much different situation than two months ago.

Despite the frantic warnings of many liberal media outlets that states like Georgia, Florida, and Texas would face devastating death tolls after reopening in late April, the data shows that none of these states have experienced the dreaded spike in cases.

Those same mainstream media outlets have been remarkably silent about the fact that many European countries have also been in the process of reopening for weeks with no surge in cases.

  10. Gentlemen ( Pres. Trump & VP Pence ) “Start your economic engines” 🙂 It’s time.

    Those of us who are older can be smart about limiting our exposure to the virus by practicing good hygiene and wearing masks until we feel comfortable leaving the masks at home.
    Great job of bringing the might of American Private sector to the table and turning the tables on this silent enemy.

  11. Behind you 100% My wonderfull, smart, sensible President!! Please tell Gavin Newsom, California State of Emergency was up on May 1st and it is now May 22. He has to legally put us on reasonable, common sense living conditions! Back to work, school, play. Are we going to do this nonsense every time a new flu virus appears?? I trust you to bring to justice the people who made this virus and Gates, Big PHARMA., Fauci, CDC, CHINA, WHO and the Clinton’s and the rich corrupt deep state, globalists tyrants who are seeking to depopulate us all with poison containing vaccines!!! We cannot trust these vaccines and we are capable of producing a healthy immune system if we let our bodies respond the way God created them to do. We continue to pray for you and the good guys daily!❤️🙏🙌🇱🇷🇱🇷🙏

  15. I see these polls showing Biden favored over Trump. Almost all of them. It reminds me of the polls showing Hillary winning by a landslide. Fake journalist working for the fake news carried the stories daily. Locally, every person I knew or every person I heard express a political opinion was anti-Hillary. Strange, it’s like deja vu. I haven’t heard one pro-Biden person. So, CA, NY, MA, and MN will determine who wins the election? Who wins the House & Senate? The Presidency? I can’t see it. Trump is enormously popular and whether you like him, or not, you have to admit he’s a better president with a better party than Biden and the corrupt democrats. That’s why I’m going to vote a straight Republican ticket, although I’m an Independent.

  16. Thank you President Trump for opening up the country again. Most of us still support you for a second term. I not in the habit of promoting other people’s work,however I am currently reading a book titled “Dark Agenda” by David Horowitz. This book will set your hair on fire and you will feel like you have to tell everyone you know about it. Please do so! After You read this book, pass it on.Remember “progressivism” is equal in meaning to “communism”.
    GOD Bless our President Donald J. Trump and GOD Bless The United States Of America.

  17. A thank God for giving us the greatest leader we have ever had! We will continue to pray for President Trump & Family and V-P Pence & Family. God bless them! Amen
