Trump Aims to Reopen Economy by Easter

Bent on jump-starting a sagging economy, President Donald Trump said Tuesday he would like to see the country “back to work” by Easter Sunday on April 12.

Trump shared his vision for “beautiful,” packed churches on Easter Sunday, despite medical officials’ concern that such gatherings would impede current stringent social-distancing guidelines by further spreading the coronavirus outbreak.

“We’ll only do it if it’s good. I just thought it was a beautiful time,” Trump said at a White House press briefing Tuesday evening.

“I would love to have the country, opened up and just raring to go by Easter,” Trump said when asked about the less than three-week timeline. “I think it’s absolutely possible. Now, people are going to have to practice all of the social distancing and things we’re doing now. … But we have to get our country back to work.”
