Trump Slams Unending Lockdowns: “We Have to Get Our Country Open”

In an interview with Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo this week, President Donald Trump said he believes that blue state Democrats have a vested political interest in keeping the economy shut down long past the point where it makes viable sense from a public health perspective. Asked by Bartiromo if his political enemies are trying to use the coronavirus pandemic as a weapon against his presidency, Trump said there was no doubt about it.

“I do,” he said. “I do. I think it’s a political thing.”

When Bartiromo asked if reopening the economy risked putting money ahead of American lives, Trump explained that he had experts on his side.

“The people that want to see the right thing happen, they agree with me,” Trump said. “We have to get our country open. You know, if it was up to some people let’s keep it closed for a long time, and watch the United States go down the tubes. Not gonna happen. Never gonna happen on my watch.”

Trump was also critical of remarks Dr. Anthony Fauci made when testifying before the Senate Health Committee earlier in the week. While Fauci declined to say specifically whether or not it is a good idea to open schools back up in the fall, the viral specialist did say that it was unlikely that a vaccine would be ready in time – thus casting doubts on the wisdom of getting kids back to school.

“So Anthony is a good person, a very good person – I’ve disagreed with him,” Trump said. “We have to get the schools open, we have to get our country open, we have to open our country. Now we want to do it safely, but we also want to do it as quickly as possible, we can’t keep going on like this. You’re having bedlam already in the streets, you can’t do this. We have to get it open. I totally disagree with him on schools. I think we have to open our schools, young people are very little affected by this.”

Of course, at this point, it doesn’t much matter what Trump says, what Fauci says, what Gretchen Whitmer says, or what Brian Kemp says. The country is slowly (and cautiously) reopening, and the story of what happens next will be written in the results – not the predictions. It is an experiment worth trying, though, because to sit in our homes and let businesses go under, workers go unpaid, and people go hungry…well, that’s not a solution at all. We have to take the risk. We have to take the chance.

Where we go from there? The next weeks and months will show us.

  1. The Democrats in the Governor’s office will do anything and everything they can to hurt the people and then lie, yelling it was because of President Trump. Real reason, they love the power to screw those that voted for them and those that didn’t. Does make one wonder, if they care about their state’s citizens or just their sense of importance’s.

  2. We have seen her true colors and they are all black. Please sign the recall petition for Gretchen Wittmer. She is easily the worst Michigan governor in the last century. She is on an ego trip that we haven’t seen since Obama. As we say in Texas; “Big Hat………No Cattle.”

  3. My body , my choice. Screw the state Gov’t. Unless the Democrats only beiieve in it for pregnant women.

  4. I went to high school 60 years ago in South Florida with a girl who resembled Gretchen Whitmer,
    In her looks, and also very much in her attitude. What a nasty person.

    She had a little clique around her, and If anyone else made any kind of remark which she didn’t like, Whoa Nellie!!!!!! She only liked a few people, the rest of us were “peasants.” I’m sure almost everyone else who reads this remembers running into another girl who was very similar to the Prom Queen, Leading cheerleader, etc, etc. she wasn’t very bright, but she was VERY MEAN. I think they made a movie about “Mean Girls.”

    I bet Gretchen Whitmer was that MEAN girl’ s first cousin.

    I moved from South FL to NW Florid, where the people are more polite, easygoing, and just plain nice.

    There will always be people, both male and female who are like Gov. Whitmer, but will they be welcomed in the Pearly Gates of Heaven? Hmmmmmmm———

  5. OK America have you seen the democrats true colors yet and how the media does their dog and pony show for them. Had it yet, keeping things oppressed churches closed. See if they take faith and hope from people then they can control them. They keep businesses closed then YOU have to depend on them. They want the power and control over you and me. It’s time people time to take them out of their office. Vote them out they have lied to America, they have used the FBI and some of them to drum up all sorts of FAKE intel all, all propagated by the DEMOCRATS. Enough America Vote and Vote the real way at your polling offices. They are making more and more up to keep you and me oppressed
