U.S. economy to reoperate soon: Trump
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday that the U.S. economy may begin reoperating soon as his administration heads towards a concrete plan. The economy was shut after restrictions were implemented to combat the further spread of the novel coronavirus.
Trump emphasized that the death toll in the United States remained unchanged, indicating that “social distancing” measures were effective. Meanwhile, some state governors are planning to resume market sessions without input from the Trump administration.
Nine states said on Monday they are on their way to reopen their economies and ease lockdown orders slowly. However, despite the efforts of the governors and the federal government, only the president can decide as he holds the ultimate authority.
“The president of the United States calls the shots,” Trump said. “That being said, we’re going to work with the states.”
