President Trump: Moving to Reopen Economy Will Be “Biggest Decision I’ve Ever Had to Make”

A lot will go into this.

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.

Mitch McConnell Preparing Exit Strategies, Potential Successors in Advance of Possible Retirement

Will Mitch retire?

Published

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly created a shortlist of potential successors, with the establishment Republican considering a possible retirement before his term ends. McConnell was reelected to another Senate term in 2020, and the Intercept broke the news of his retirement considerations on Thursday.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is reportedly McConnell’s first pick for his successor. Former UN Ambassador Kelly Craft and Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams are also possible replacements. McConnell, 79, has served as a Kentucky Senator since 1985.

Kentucky law currently would allow Governor Andy Beshear- a Democrat- to appoint McConnell’s successor if he retired. However, McConnell is pushing for the Republican state legislature to pass reforms allowing them to select replacements for Senators who have resigned. McConnell’s quiet boosting of legislative reforms to appoint interim Senators led to the reports of his potential retirement, although it’s unclear when he plans to leave the picture.

McConnell largely alienated the Republican Party with a forceful denunciation of former President Donald Trump during the second sham impeachment trial targeting the President, although he declined to vote to convict the President on the basis of legality. A Republican candidate in the mold of McConnell’s 20th century style would have a difficult time winning a Kentucky GOP primary, and McConnell’s appointed pick may start off in such an election with a considerable handicap. In addition, the legacy Senator remains popular in Kentucky, although at least one county party censured him for his betrayal of Trump in January.
