Boom: Trump Sets Target Date For Re-Opening America

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Early Tuesday morning, President Trump continued to signal that it is his intention to re-open the U.S. economy and get Americans back to work sooner rather than later. Repeating yesterday’s theme that the government can’t afford to implement a draconian “cure” that is worse than the China Virus itself, the President issued the following tweet:

A few hours later, President Trump had this to say on “Outnumbered” on Fox News:

Transcript:

Trump: The Senate and the House, we seem to be getting a long as much as you can get along. We seem to be getting a long now on a bill. I think that maybe had even less than an impact than the fact that we’re opening up this incredible country. Because we have to do that.

I’d love to have it all open by Easter [April 12]. I would love to have it open by Easter, I will tell you that right now. I would love that. It’s such an important day for other reasons, but I’ll make it an important day for this, too. I would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter.

[End]

For an investment community hungering to see a bottom reached in the stock market indexes, this is a crucial moment in time. There is no way the markets can find their bottom when they have no certainty – or even any real idea – about when business might resume and start getting the economy fully back on-line.

Markets were already soaring today on the prospect of the Democrats caving in and allowing the Senate stimulus measure to move through the process. The President’s move to set a firm target date for beginning to get the economy moving again will only serve to support that positive sentiment among investors longing for some good news.

As usual, President Trump’s sense of timing yesterday and today was impeccable. Be glad he’s your President.

That is all.

    Psychologically a deadline to stop this and begin getting back to normal makes all the difference. Now people know how long to plan for, and economy will be poised to spring back.

    I think April 12 is reasonable–I’m sure he wanted it to be sooner, but probably compromised with his science advisors. I expect the virus infection rate to peak in this country by next week and then start to subside. It should be well along that track by Easter.

      Serology should help.

    No matter the specifics of how this plays out in the next several weeks, the biggest losers of all in this debacle are the media. Less than a third of the country now trusts them.

    Now Slow Joe attempts to do ‘The View’ and continuously gropes his face like a lower primate while babbling incoherently.

    A convention replacement is coming. Joe will get the Godfather offer from Obama very soon.

      I believe you’re right.

    Phineas, Did you and others see,

    A new Monmouth University Poll gives Gaff O. Joe a three point lead over president Trump.

    Really? I mean, come on, Get Real. White “educated” women and minorities give him the edge. But go ahead, keep telling your lemmings that Gaff O. Joe who now literally can’t put a subject and a predicate together, or spell cat if you spotted him the c and the a, is in the lead against Trump.

    With the Burnster all but eliminated, and Joe being Joe – now often seen sans necktie (guess his wife or handlers don’t want to dress him – social distancing don’t you know), things do not look good for the “presumptive nominee”. The Jackass Party will have to get someone (Cuomo?) else; probably another white guy to replace him, with possibly Pocahontas, or the Hawaiian Heroine as the VP.

    Polling data and focus groups must show their female bench is just not ready for prime time.

    A Cuomo nomination is entirely possible – notice how he has lately found a new “friend” in Trump and being a lot less caustic to, or critical of, the president? He has definitely toned down the Trump Sucks rhetoric, just like all the Dems do when they have to run against a pro-Trump GOP candidate in the special House races in Swing or Red districts the past couple of years.

    Why Cuomo sounds… almost, almost gubernatorial and occasionally competent lately. At least the Dems know he has a good chance to carry his own state in Nov. But it would be great if he were to somehow lose NY to Trump – a sweet thought.

    For certain, Walking Eagle will NOT be Cuomo’s, or any other nominee’s Veep – as it is basic human instinct to want to stay alive and survive four years, plus she brings NO electability to the ticket.

    I wouldn’t want to be within a hundred miles of Milwaukee this July.

      I talked to a great man today – a man who has suffered at the hands of rich Establishment types, a man who persevered and battled against the odds – a man who was beaten-down but not beaten (mostly because of his race and jealousy from the “elites” over his integrity and modesty. Yes, it happened: I was there, one of the few to support him during one of those awful times, the only white man to stand up and take a beating with him (metaphorically) and to make his time of crisis my time of crisis. He was and is a good man.

      He loves President Trump – he’s a little worried that the enemy praises Trump, because that isn’t always a good sign, Biblically speaking. But I’d say this, quoting Scripture:

      Proverbs 16:7
      “When a man’s ways please the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.”

      But the man was right in so many other ways; Dems better not count on their captives to remain captive. A lot of people are running for Freedom, and the barricades are falling away.

      Just trying to add a little levity and humor to my personal analysis.

    […] Trump sets target date for re-opening America. This would seem to point to the study released a while back, which said they would lock us down, so that infections would peak just before ventilator capacity, then unlock us to let the country move forward, then lock us down so that the next surge in infections remained below ventilator capacity, then unlock us once the surge was over, and we would keep doing that for 18 months. […]
