The United States will not “shut down” if another wave of coronavirus cases strikes, or at least that’s what President Donald Trump is promising the nation and the rest of the world. As The Hill reports, his bold statement came during a tour of a Ford plant in Michigan this week.
“People say that’s a very distinct possibility,” Trump reportedly said. “It’s standard. And we’re going to put out the fires. We’re not going to close the country. We’re going to put out the fires. Whether it’s an ember or a flame, we’re going to put it out. But we’re not closing our country.”
Confidence is great, but someone should probably remind him that it’s not up to him.
