President Trump spoke in serious terms about the eventual re-opening of the American economy at Friday’s White House press briefing, stating that timing the federal government’s easing of restrictions would be the “biggest decision I’ve ever had to make.”
President Trump is not making a haughty push to reopen America’s businesses and institutions, while recognizing that their continued closure has been a difficult disruption to everyday life and the economy. He made it clear that he’s continuing to listen to the advice of medical experts such as Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx.
“I listen to them about everything. We’re not doing anything until we know that this country is going be healthy. We don’t want to go back and start doing it over again.”
The President also announced he would be commissioning an “Open the Economy” task force on April 14th that will provide advice for the reopening of economic institutions. Both doctors and business leaders will purportedly be staffing the task force.

Trump’s remarks indicate that it’s likely businesses and major institutions will open at a gradual pace, and Dr. Fauci said Friday that it’s likely the United States will incur some cases of coronavirus when people begin going back to work.
The CDC’s existing social distancing guidelines last until April 30th, and it appears likely that some forms of reintegration could begin around that date. Texas Governor Greg Abbott is expected to issue an executive order within the next few days offering guidelines towards the eventual reopening of businesses and organizations.
“I want to get it open as soon as possible,” said Trump of the economy. “This country was meant to be open and vibrant and great.” The President has previously suggested that the economy could start running again in early May.
RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel Privately Doubts Voter Fraud Claims But Wants to Appear Like She’s “Fighting” for the President
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel is continuing to differentiate her private and public stances vis-à-vis the contested presidential election and ongoing voter fraud claims.
In a Politico article titled “The Inside Story of Michigan’s Fake Voter Fraud Scandal,” Tim Albert reported that McDaniel has privately expressed her doubts about any “scalable” voter fraud in Michigan, but that she still needs to “demonstrate a willingness to fight” for the president.
McDaniel had previously received the president’s endorsement to remain RNC chair, and as of now she has no serious challengers. But it is possible that a challenger will arise, such as Cory Gardner, a Republican senator from Colorado defeated on November 3 by Democrat John Hickenlooper. He is seen as part of the GOP establishment and, if he were to run, could force McDaniel to fully embrace her pre-Trump “establishment” image once again.
Big League Politics wrote earlier this month about McDaniel’s quiet withdrawal from President Trump and his America First agenda, referencing this New York Times article that describes the fight between Trump and the RNC over voter data.
“Right now, the RNC and the president are in a tug of war over the immense treasure trove of voter data that was collected during the 2020 presidential campaign. Many RNC insiders want to horde the intelligence, which can be used to anoint an establishment-friendly heir apparent to replace Trump, such as former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley or Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas,” Big League Politics’ Shane Trejo wrote.
McDaniel is putting herself in a tough spot. The left sees her as a spreader of “lies” about voter fraud that, in her mind, she knows to be “lies,” while those on the right see her as privately abandoning the president and maintaining a façade.
Either way, RNC leadership is looking very weak both now and for the foreseeable future.
