President Trump and First Lady Melania participate in National Dialogue on Safely Reopening America's Schools


A majority of COVID-19 infections may be spread through "silent transmission" by people who have no symptoms or have not yet displayed them, a new study suggests. That could be crucial as states reopen their economies and schools, leaving isolation of infected individuals as the primary protocol curtailing transmission.

      @lauren donahue Remember this and the Supreme Court has already ruled against the Draft Dodger last year, you can’t withhold public funds that has been allocated by Congress. Nice try but you’re wrong.

    Who cares what they think. Should be up to parents and teachers and the students. Ugh

    • @Heather Alvarez what do teachers do know they don’t teach any more

    • People need to do their job, and actually raise their children. Teach their children…. Quit handing your children to the state. If you put your young child in school, wearing a mask all day, not socializing, washing hands consistently, you’re abusing your children.

    • It is. We started homeschooling last August. It is definitely not the same as distance schooling.

  4. Was Devos there?

  5. You ever notice how the msm always uses a non-flattering, scowl pic of the president? hmmmm

    Why does Kellyanne act like everything is a photo op? I agree 100% with this woman though!

    I ain’t going to school I don’t wanna get sick even if u have a mask on 😤

  13. I rather have a crazy kid than a dead one.

  14. Watching Trump handle the pandemic is liking watching the Three Stooges put out a fire.

  15. Oh so there is medicine and procedures to calm the virus so just let them go test the water out. If burn we will take care of his or her burns. Can’t guarantee that he or she will live.

    Arnie Duncan said today “The president has made himself beyond irrelevant on this, and no one can afford to listen to him because what he has done already is so dangerous and has cost so many lives,”

    So basically Trump is responsible for all the American deaths seeing how he refused to do anything when he heard about the oncoming virus in January. Yet Republican voters still like him??? Might as well vote for a murderer then because he has blood on his hands.

  17. Sure the teachers and staff will teach proper CDC guidelines. They can’t even make the kids keep their clothes on right, much less make them wear a mask while on campus.

  18. Kids will still bully themselves in class or out.

  19. “Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today”

    The Chicago school district closed 49 elementary schools and one high school for our kids, Philadelphia have closed 30 schools for our kids, and now other cities are closing some of their schools for our children as well. The United States has seen 263 school shootings.
    President Donald Trump is seeking a 10 percent cut to the U.S. Department of Education’s budget in his fiscal 2020 budget proposal, which would cut the department’s spending by $7.1 billion down to $64 billion starting in October. Funding for teacher development under Title II, totaling $2.1 billion, would be eliminated, as would $1.2 billion in Title IV funding for academic supports and enrichment and $1.1 billion for 21st Century Community Learning Centers that support after-school programs. In total, funding for 29 programs would be eliminated in the federal budget.

    There’s a silent cry, and it’s right here – it’s our children shedding their tears. Their playgrounds are getting smaller, while the prisons are getting bigger. The U.S spend more money on their prison system, than our children education.
    The biggest threat to America right now is its future. OUR CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE ! We’re so wrapped up in the cares of the world that we can no longer hear the cries of our children. Our kids are killing each other in schools and drive-by shootings, overdosing and dying off drugs, and nearly 800,000 children are reported missing each year.
    If we don’t protect our children today- who will carry us along the way. What will become of us once they are gone – the child you save may be your own.


  20. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🙏🙏🙏👍👍👍
