Trump: US Won’t Close Over Second CCP Virus Wave

    President Donald Trump on Thursday said the United States will not shut down if there is another COVID-19 wave.

    “People say that’s a very distinct possibility. It’s standard. And we’re going to put out the fires,” Trump told reporters when he was touring a Ford manufacturing plant in Michigan. He was asked about whether he’s concerned about a second wave of the virus.

    But Trump added a caveat, saying that “we’re not going to close the country,” and “we’re going to put out the fires.”

    Trump expressed confidence in the United States being able to contain future CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus outbreaks.

    “Whether it’s an ember or a flame, we’re going to put it out. But we’re not closing our country,” the president said.

    Currently, data shows that more than 90,000 people in the United States have died from the virus so far. Starting in March, a number of governors have imposed strict lockdowns, leading to layoffs and business closures.

    Trump made the remarks while touring the Ford plant, which is currently making ventilators in response to the pandemic.

    But over the past month or so, all 50 states have started some level of reopening, including New York, the state with the most COVID-19 deaths.

    The number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits in the two months since the coronavirus took hold in the United States has swelled to nearly 39 million, the government reported Thursday, even as states from coast to coast gradually reopen their economies and let people go back to work. More than 2.4 million people filed for unemployment last week in the latest wave of layoffs from the business shutdowns that have brought the economy to its knees, the Labor Department said.

    That brings the running total to a staggering 38.6 million, a job-market collapse unprecedented in its speed.

    The number of weekly applications has slowed for seven straight weeks. Yet the figures remain breathtakingly high—10 times higher than normal before the crisis struck.

    And the continuing rise shows that even though all states have begun reopening over the past three weeks, employment has yet to snap back and the outbreak is still damaging businesses and destroying jobs.

    The People have spoken.
    They do not think CCP Virus will infect them.
    "Currently, data shows that more than 90,000 people in the United States have died from the virus so far."

    Just be happy.

    Don't have to be closed, but they better be controlled. If closing helps get control, I'm all for it. I've been thinking the border should be a check valve, out OK, in NOT.

    Trump didn't actually CLOSE us down, he only closed down international travels from abroad, the STATES are the ones who closed down and restricted all movements to some degree! Trump played it correctly by letting the States decide what was best! Any issues now and it's the States on the hook for them, Not the Fed Gov, Brilliant move, and the absolute correct one!

    If we get hit with another wave, it's already set up to block all foreign travels again, and this time, the fucking STATES can focus on the issue instead of attacking Trump claiming he was slow or inept in his official response! Mean While, N.Y.C took weeks to shut down public transportation, but were the first to blame trump for the outbreak and lack of action! And lets not forget Former El' President'e Obummer loudly claiming his righteousness and indignation at how much betteror he would have done things, all the while he fucked up twice and left us hangin far worse going into Covid-19! If this had been Canckles, we would all be dead by now!

    As predicted, the Leftists are screaming and ranting over every single reported case after the reopening begins. The media is hyping the numbers and counting every single bean, all propaganda. The Communists want the shutdown to continue, most are too stupid to see the end game.

    The deficit itself doesn't matter, we've been well over 20+ trillion and steadily climbing. The system was designed to create wealth for the 5% on top, transferring as much as possible to the top. Since the money all comes from private hands, meaning it's not even money until after it is approved by the privately owned Federal Reserve, every bill is debt laden and the only way to try to pay it off is to print more. Naturally, this won't work. The .Gov pays for printing and cost to make the money, then agrees to pay the FED face value PLUS interest on every loan.
    What I am getting at is, a couple trillion added to the tab isn't going to break us. A couple trillion more won't do it, either. No, only public perception will prove to be the undoing of this nation, from speculation of the Stock Market to the closing of small businesses and rampant unemployment, and especially the corporate media and everything they shove down the gullets of every hapless moron.
    This next depression will be just like the last, it will be created in a scientific fashion. There will be no actual reason for it aside from the need to push a globalist agenda.
