Trump Threatens to Cut Funding to Schools that Won’t Reopen in Fall

President Trump took issue Wednesday with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) guidance for reopening schools in a safe manner amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“I disagree with @CDCgov on their very tough & expensive guidelines for opening schools,” Trump tweeted. “While I want them open, they are asking schools to do very impractical things. I will be meeting with them!!!”

The CDC guidelines encourage hygiene, the use of cloth face coverings and staying home when appropriate in addition to recommending staggered scheduling, having backup staffing plans, modifying seating layouts for social distancing, imposing physical barriers and closing communal spaces.

Trump has threatened to cut off federal funding for schools that don’t reopen in the fall.

“In Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and many other countries, SCHOOLS ARE OPEN WITH NO PROBLEMS,” the president tweeted Wednesday. “The Dems think it would be bad for them politically if U.S. schools open before the November Election, but is important for the children & families. May cut off funding if not open!”
