Trump adviser says going back to school ‘not that hard’

Trump adviser says going back to school 'not that hard' 1


White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow on Friday dismissed the difficulties surrounding getting students back into classrooms this fall as coronavirus cases continue to rise in many states and the school year nears.
"Just go back to school, we can do that," Kudlow told reporters. "And you know, you can social distance, you can get your temperature taken, you can be tested, you can have distancing — come on, it's not that hard."
Kudlow's comments seemed to run counter to President Donald Trump's dissatisfaction with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines on reopening schools, which the President slammed on Wednesday as "very tough and expensive." Trump also threatened to cut off federal funding for schools if they don't open in the fall, the latest stress for schools already reeling from the coronavirus pandemic.
While the CDC has released guidance to schools on how to safely bring children back into the classroom, the administration has said most of the decision making will be left up to local districts — suggesting there will be a piecemeal approach to how children across the nation will be educated in the fall. Congress has so far passed about $30 billion in aid for schools to deal with coronavirus — about $13 billion of which went to K-12 institutions. But educators say billions more will be needed to pay for things like masks, cleaning supplies, handwashing stations and possibly more staff to conduct temperature checks, and Congress is still trillions of dollars apart on another stimulus package to respond to the pandemic.
Adding to the concern over funding is Trump's threat to limit federal support for schools that don't reopen over Covid-19 fears.

    • David Ellis ya imagine this narcissist is laughing inside knowing he FOOLED America with all his lies, education being one of them and becoming the PRESIDENT. He pulled a con on the ppl and yet so many dismiss all that and enable his bad behaviours. Americans need to wake up and stop being the victims to BS.

      Ofc he would, it s just like their “school” would be a private teacher that gets tested everyday despite living in the very same gated community like the Kudlow family paid by your taxes… Kudlow: “Now the rest of you peasants better send your kids back to your shady, overcrowded social hotspot you call school so you can finally pick up your underpaid jobs again. You gotta be free to work more hours for less now, our profits ahm… country needs you after those lazy months of quarantine recreation!”

    If you’re a child and your parents force you to go to school during this time, run away.

    • Is that what you did years ago?

    • Oh yes please, I have a windowless black van with all the bells and whistles. Come, little children, ready for a ride and lots of fun?

    • Massey Forbusiness | July 10, 2020 at 10:49 PM | Reply

      Yeah cause this is the only time I’m gonna allow my kids to runaway! I’ll pack their bags even! 😂 😂

      @Luke Marohn Children have atrocious hygiene in general. If that wasn’t bad enough, you have no idea what their individual home lives look like and who they’ve come into contact with during a time when there are idiots out their eschewing the use of masks. Schools are already petri dishes without adding those factors into the mix. So yes, you’re better off hiding in a friend’s tree house than congregating in that swirl of contagion. If your parents are too dense to recognize that fact, pray that you’re adopted or that stupidity skips a generation.

    “Its not that hard”…tell it to the parents…how are you supposed to keep safe distancing toddler’s children and adolescents…Are you Dumb???

  10. Trump should send his son Baron Trump to school.

  11. Funny how Trump and the GOP leaders are concern about school when they keep cutting funds every year..🥴😂

  12. Tell that to the guy who needs to retake his SATs

  13. Bunker Donnie paid a guy to take the SAT for him and he shouldn’t get to make any decisions involving education!!!🤔

  14. Walking into a burning building isn’t that hard either. Coming back out can be tricky.

  15. Trump: Offer your children as a sacrifice for my re-election” 🥴

  16. They are actively killing us without remorse

    So children are Trump’s political sacrificial lambs now along with school staff?

      No, but children in NY and NJ should go back to school. What are democrats waiting for? The pandemic is OVER.
