Trump wants to ‘reopen’ the economy by Easter despite rapid coronavirus spread

By: Kevin Breuninger, CNBC, March 24, 2020:

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he wants the U.S. economy to “open” back up by Easter Sunday, even as the number of coronavirus cases in the country accelerates.

Trump’s remarks in a Fox News “virtual town hall” event at the White House came as more states imposed extreme measures, including shutting down businesses and ordering residents to stay home, to try to slow the spread of the disease.

“We’re opening up this incredible country. Because we have to do that. I would love to have it open by Easter,” Trump said.
