According to the Washington Examiner:
President Trump said he hopes the country will begin returning to normal in less than three weeks following a widespread shutdown to mitigate the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
At a Tuesday Fox News town hall event taking place in the White House Rose Garden, Trump surprised hosts Harris Faulkner and Bill Hemmer when he set a goal for the country to begin reopening by April 12.
“I’d love to have it open by Easter. I would love to have it opened by Easter,” the president said.
“Oh, wow, OK,” Faulkner interjected.
“It’s such an important day for other reasons, but I will make it an important day for this too. I would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter,” Trump continued.
“That would be a great American resurrection, two-and-a-half plus weeks from now,” Hemmer said with a chuckle.
