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.

He Found His Spine: Vulnerable Senator Cory Gardner Vows to Support Trump’s SCOTUS Nominee

Gardner found his backbone.

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has often been at odds with the Trump movement, being a favorite of the GOP establishment’s Senate Leadership Fund.

This is why his recent declaration that he will be supporting President Donald Trump’s choice to succeed the deceased Ruth Bader Ginsburg is so surprising. He made the announcement in a Twitter post on Monday.

“When a President exercises constitutional authority to nominate a judge for the Supreme Court vacancy, the Senate must decide how to best fulfill its constitutional duty of advice and consent,” Gardner said in his official statement.

“I have and will continue to support judicial nominees who will protect the Constitution, not legislate from the bench, and uphold the law. Should a qualified nominee who meets this criteria be put forward, I will vote to confirm,” he added.

The president’s pick for the Supreme Court will certainly fit Gardner’s criteria. Trump has announced that he will be appointing a woman to the bench.

One top contender – Amy Comey Barrett – recently made a trip to the White House, as Big League Politics has reported:

Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.

Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.

Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.

President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.

Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.

Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.

It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.

The Republicans have a great opportunity to score a major political victory and really stick it to the extreme Left with this expedited SCOTUS confirmation. The fact that a moderate like Gardner is on board is a great sign that the confirmation is likely to occur before November’s election.
