Donald Trump hinted North Americans would go back to work after the Easter holiday. This is a result of the lockdown that is having an effect on the country’s economy. This is understandable when you consider when businesses and companies are closed or their services are reduced, this will have a negative effect on the economy. Also, it might increase the rate of unemployment.
However, health authorities are of a different opinion. WHO stated the US might end up like Italy if the government allows people to go back to work. It is predicted the US might become the epicentre of the pandemic disease.
What is your take? Trump said flu kills more Americans annually than the coronavirus. Also, road accidents claim more lives than coronavirus.
This is when you are faced with a dilemma of trying to balance things.
Do you think this is recommendable?

I have a hard time watching him speak or read for that matter. Its just excruciating. Yes, he is I guess, maybe trying to keep panic at bay. We do know he does not put the people first. Its all about the green back.
Sadly, that is the case. You are right that most of the time Trump doesn’t people first. I hope he doesn’t make an unwise decision.
i suspect the desire to get the country moving forward is a driver. I think that his ‘throwing’ the idea out was more of a trial balloon than anything.
will it happen? yes, America will reopen after Easter. How long after Easter is still open for debate.
Don’t you think if it will be reopened it will spell a disaster since cases of infection are increasing in the country? I understand the need to get people to work but am concerned about its rapid rise.
We will wait to see how long it will be reopened? This disease is driving the world crazy with many people being laid off.
my gut is let’s see what is happening in a month. Politicians say a lot of things to gauge reaction, they don’ do those things just say them.
We in India are on a 21-day lockdown The Government did not prepare which resulted in thousands of daily wage earners on the streets.
Trump should wait a bit longer.
The lock down started today, isn’t it?
True, Trump should wait a little longer since the spread isn’t decreasing. It is too early to be certain.
I’m sure that’s not a good idea. In our country, too, there are workers at home. We will have big problems because of this (my country is very small) but in the first place is human health.
Yes, I hope he won’t make rash decisions for the benefit of re-election. He should listen to health experts and devise plans how to deal with the situation.
He said he would re-assess the situation at that time. Many have asked for a date to think of the future and get back to normal. He is trying to ease their minds as best as he can.
Yes, he is in a dilemma trying to ease the panic among the people. I hope he doesn’t rush the decision of go back to work for political reasons.
I honestly don’t think he will. This is sort of a day to day crisis.
That will be a relief because a leader should put people first.
That is not what the man said. He said he would *like* for the people to go back. The situation will depend on whether that happens of not. You, along with a lot of other Democrats have spread a falsehood. Shame on you in such a time of panic!
This has not do with being democrat or republican. I don’t support abortion neither gay relationship. Health authorities said it would not be wise for Trump to ask people to go back to work. It is due to health experts’ concern that he said by the end of the month he will reassess the situation. Also remember some republican governors were not of the opinion Americans should not go back to work very soon.

Trump is, for me, so and so the biggest unbalanced fool …. he needs to be replaced quickly if he doesn’t put the whole world in disaster
So putting a Democrat in office that supports abortion and thinks the government should pay for all abortions would be the answer? And tax the people at approximately 50% of their income? I don’t know about you, but I worked for my retirement funds and I want to keep 100% of them. No thanks to socialism which is what they are pushing. Look at those countries now. They are not thriving.
Another one that only looks at the money and doesn’t care about the victims ….. well the virus doesn’t choose or you are poor or rich …. you will become another Italy
It is not that I hate Trump. But at times Trump is a conflicting figure. Some of his statements were in contrast to those of health experts pertaining to coronavirus.
I totally agree with you, dear friend
Americans should stay at home until coronavirus is controlled. Health is more important than the economy. Donald Trump is afraid of losing the election so he wants people to go back to work
That is the case. He should put the health of the people at the forefront not for political gain.
We has seen the kind of havoc that this disease is wreaking around the world. When we know it spread by human contact it is better to stay home, the economy will repair itself in a year or two but will the dead come to life? We certainly have to ask ourselves some questions .. Is human life and suffering not worth anything at all?
People matter a lot. It is better to take precautionary measures because the effects will be worse. I hope he will make a wise decision at the end of the month.
