Trump Hopes to Have US Economy ‘Opened Up’ By Easter


President Trump said he hopes to have the country “opened up and just raring to go by Easter,” setting a goal aiming for Easter Sunday to have American’s return back to normalcy while resurrecting the economy.

“I would love to have the country opened up and rearing to go by Easter,” Trump said during a Fox News virtual town hall from the White House Rose Garden. “It’s not built to shut down. Our people are full of vim and vigor and energy. They don’t want to be locked in a house or an apartment or some space.”

Trump said his task force would consider ways to “allow local economies to cautiously resume their activity at the appropriate time” after the end of a 15-day period of strict social distancing ends. The United States is nine days into a 15-day period of White House guidelines to “slow the spread” of the virus.
