President Donald Trump said Thursday in Michigan that he would not close the country if it was hit by a second wave of the coronavirus.

“We are going to put out the fires. We’re not going to close the country,” Trump said. “We can put out the fires. Whether it is an ember or a flame, we are going to put it out. But we are not closing our country.”

The president spoke during a tour of a Ford factory that was manufacturing ventilators, as he continues pushing for the country to reopen after the coronavirus-fueled shutdowns.

“We did the right thing, but now it is time to open it up,” he said. “A never-ending lockdown would invite a public health calamity. To protect the health of our people, we must have a functioning economy.”

Earlier in the day, Trump said that some Democrat governors were not reopening their states fast enough.

“You have a lot of, unfortunately in this case, Democrat governors, I think they think it’s great politics to keep it closed, but what are they doing, they’re hurting themselves, I don’t think it is good politics … they’re hurting themselves, they’re hurting their state, and it’s not good,” Trump said, and added, “You’ll break the country if you don’t.”

  • I agree with him it should have never close the country at all because people die different ways it's not just the coronavirus.

  • Selective closing. You can still drink alcohol and fornicate (planed murderhood) but no school or church. 

  • Trump should use this opportunity to have doctors of HEALTH, not speak about the things that allow people to be susceptible to all viruses. 

    The American people eat garbage. The shelves in aisles where there is packaged and junk food are empty. The good food is widely available, fruits, veggies, spices, herbs. Farmers markets are opening up.
    Trump should bring in someone who knows health. He or she should talk about the need to get oxygen in our bodies, this comes from exercise. He should talk about sunshine, Vitamins C, D, K, niacin, E and the rest. People need some truth.

    He could take this and turn America on it's head and help people realize disease in this country is mostly fue to lifestyle, not genetrics, and some diagnoses for disease COMES from the different vaxx's. Put Fauci and Gates on the defensive.

    That would blow all their minds but the truth would at least get out there, and maybe wake up the Governor's to the absurdity of this lockdown. Health may be a gift, but it is even more a choice and the sum total of our choices put into action. Italy was an older and sedentary population with 2-4 pre-existing conditions and high smoking, alcohol and obesity. percentages. Plus Italy has a high population of Chinese, who went back to China for the New Year and came back to Italy, while China was busy hiding this pandemic. Italians were sitting ducks for this disaster. Trump could knock out Gates and with one shot. Wouldn't that be lovely?

  • It was wrong to close the country (lock down) in the first place. He needs to fired Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx for gross incompetence. He needs to disband the Task Force on the Corona Virus now. The evil Democratic governors and mayors who refused to reopen their communities need to be exposed for their tyranty.
