READ: President Trump's Letter To Governors On New Coronavirus Guidelines

Source: NPR

President Trump said in a letter to U.S. governors on Thursday that his administration is working to publish new guidelines for state and local governments to use when making decisions about "maintaining, increasing or relaxing social distancing and other mitigation measures" for the coronavirus epidemic.

Trump said officials are gathering testing data that will suggest guidelines categorizing counties as "high risk, medium risk or low risk" for the virus. The data will drive "the next phase" of the response, he said.

Trump has indicated that he wants to adjust his 15-day social distancing guidelines so that more parts of the stalled U.S. economy can reopen by April 12. The 15th day of the original guidelines is Monday.

5. Obviously getting pandemic response advise from economists



tRump is obviously getting advise on how best to deal with this pandemic from his economic advisers, and ignoring scientists and healthcare professionals.

WHAT A FUCKING MORON.

9. Screw him. The states are doing everything and his 15-day plan is just bullshit.

He get's crazier each day. Someone needs to declare him unfit for duty and lock him up for his own good, and ours.

12. He is so totally unfit. McCabe knew that, and tried to do something about it early on.

Boy, did they ever trash him, or what?

My guess is the governors are going to tell trump where to stuff his plans.

10. Hopefully every blue state governor tells him...

to shove this hooey where the sun doesn't shine.

His doing this morally and fiscally the wrong thing to do. It's like a twisted off shoot of their trickle down crap. In the long tern this will not help the economy since dead people don't pay taxes, dead people don't purchase services and products, dead people don't invest.

15. Here's what will really happen on Easter:

The United States will pass the 1 million mark in confirmed coronavirus cases, still rising at an exponential rate.

Unemployment will also grow. The stock market will not be open that day, but will continue its long slide afterwards.

Trump will insist he knew before anyone else it would get this bad and will praise the members of his staff who have died from the virus.
