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.”

    Correct. As a small business owner NEVER AGAIN EVER!!!!! And you read all the assclown comments on Google of people blaming Trump for the current economy. The economy was awesome. and they couldn’t stand it!! Thought politicizing this and putting independent workers, and small business owners in handcuffs would do the trick. The virus is proving to be common in the population as more testing takes place. You cannot contain it by locking people down. You protect the vulnerable and let it run its course. Now hospitals are broke , empty and the assumed well protected hospital and government workers who thought their jobs were safe are getting pay cuts and layoffs. Welcome to the hell us nonessential workers have gone through. Sucks huh? One phrase
    “Backfire!”

    People need to stop voting for people who do not serve the people’s interest. Handouts help to get people on their feet, working empowers people. Knowledge is $$$$$

    Thank-you, Mr. President! No more lock downs EVER!!!!! The evil Dems use them to take control of American citizens, give money to illegals, promote mail in voting which all the Republican votes will conveniently get lost, and mostly to ruin our economy to win an election. They have shown this to be true, no love for suffering Americans even thought they call their stimulus pkg the “heroes bill”. They are wolves in sheep’s clothing pretending to care about us and our country when they even bragged about not letting a good crisis go to waste so they can push their hate Trump and OWGov take over agenda.
