Trump says he will pressure governors to reopen schools as virus surges 1


President Donald Trump said that he's putting pressure on governors to reopen schools this fall, part of his push to reopen the country despite a recent surge in coronavirus cases.
"We hope that most schools are going to be open," Trump said at a White House event, claiming that some places will want to stay closed "for political reasons."
"They think it's going to be good for them politically, so they keep the schools closed," the President alleged without evidence. "No way."
"We're very much going to put pressure on governors and everybody else to open the schools, to get them open," said Trump, who has been anxious to reopen America to kickstart the economy and otherwise move on from the pandemic, despite its resurgence.

    the governors have that right. He is acting like a dictator if he wasn’t already one

  2. The Governor’s won’t take any notice of him. Those that have are currently paying for it.

    Am I the only one that feels this is a direct attack on our children by putting political interests first?

  5. “Playing politics”
    This from the man who turned profilactic measures like social distancing & facemasks into a political issue.

      @Jackie Beckwith well if people can refuse to wear a mask then they certainly can refuse to send their kids to school until the pandemic is under control. Do people really want their kids to mingle with other kids whos families refuse to wear a mask!.

  7. Trump knows he is going to lose the election, seems like he is just trying to take American down with him.

  8. “Everybody wants it. The moms want it, the dads want it……” He neglected the third part “the virus wants it”

  9. Mr. “I don’t take any responsibility” is ordering schools be open. When the first kids gets hospitalized, Trump will say, it’s China and Obama’s fault.

    Trump’s mantra: My authority is total but I don’t take responsibility at all.

      @NDFOOTBALL Mexico Spain France and England all owned portions of the United States, they owned the land for much much longer than the 5 years the Confederacy existed. So if this is all about history like you say we should put Statues of Mexican generals in Texas right? A shrine to king George in new England? French military in Louisiana… Do you get my point?


      Except the side you support is the one doing all of it. projection and hypocrisy

    • @zach thomason Maybe there isn’t anything wrong with leaving monuments up normally so there is validity to that argument… but people also have the right to decide what parts of history live on in their country.

    • Everyone needs to just stand their ground, not go to work or school and dare the government to drag people out of their fucking homes.

      @NDFOOTBALL trump wants schools open so he won’t be blamed for gullible, uneducated persons such as yourself!

    Why the surprise? He separated thousand of children from their parents and put them in a concentration camp.

    • @Greggers Grunderson and Trump separated children from their parents, and family. Some are not able to find their children, because of Trump. The conditions were inhumane, and Trump enjoyed every minute of it!

      Back at it again orange man

    • Goes to show some people get numb above the neck when to much BS is viewed. The racists looked the other way when a defenceless child is being treated like an animal. Scary part, their raising children just like themselfs

    • @arniebarb123 says, “but but but Obama, but but baaaaa!”

    • Everyone needs to just stand their ground, not go to work or school and dare the government to drag people out of their fucking homes.

  12. Trump can play Russian roulette with his own kid….not mine.. my kids will go back when I say so!!!!

    • @Aleksandra Rubini
      How could your kid(s) learn when they get infected and die??
      WOW, what a father..

    • marlonious76 | July 7, 2020 at 10:37 PM | Reply

      Got damn RIGHT !!!


    • @Aleksandra Rubini So your children’s lives aren’t that important to you? You would take a chance with their lives, because you are too lazy to make the effort, and keep them safe. What are you going to say to them when they get covid?

    • @Aleksandra Rubini then take the risk your kids can pass the virus to your parents. Work is more important than your parents lives sure

  13. Parents can “Home School” or School Children “Online.”

    • My wife’s daughter and her husband can’t afford to home school they both have to work.

    • @Clyde Jones You need to get back to school immediately and learn about punctuation.

    • @Careagn Well, the woman of the house is usually just sitting around the house and doing nothing, except getting fatter, anyway.

      He can say whatever he wants I’m not sending my kid back to school, she’s going to do it online. I bet he’s not going to send Baron to school.

    • If you don’t have a job you can home school your kids

    He’s mentally incompetent to be the president of the US Now he’s going to put the children in danger.

    • Well, MAGA parents don’t seem concerned. Or maybe they simply put him above their kids. Remember what some parents did to their kids in the Hitler bunker as a show of loyalty?

    • jessica Cloud9 | July 7, 2020 at 10:24 PM | Reply

      Well most Karen supporters, especially those who don’t wanna homeschool their kids won’t care either. They’re gonna send their kids to without masks and tell them coronavirus is a hoax😳😕

      @jessica Cloud9 This country is SO Fu#ked up.

    Donald Trump cares for no one. I hope these governors don’t listen to him.

    • I think we already know who will listen to him & who won’t based on party line… Or maybe it’s better to say ‘which party controls the state’. (Seeing as my state of MD is solid blue but we have Hogan, a Republican, as Governor, but he’s been pretty reasonable where the virus is concerned).

  16. I will let my kids go back to school when trump let’s a crowd of 200 people cough on his face.

    NOW HE IS TRYING TO KILL OUR CHILDREN TOO. HE IS A MAD MAN!!! He is the worst kind of killer.

    This just sounds like trump is being politically vindictive at the cost of children! This is getting bad…

    I will not send my kid to school, until a vaccine is worldwide available.
