President Trump said Wednesday he is so comfortable with the idea of kids returning to school that he would send his own child.
I do wish Trump would not comment on the young people in his family. It gives the press what they think is license to report on them and go after them in ways Trump and Melania will not want.
But, that’s up to him.
According to the Washington Examiner:
President Trump said he would be happy for his son and grandchildren to return to school, as he stepped up his appeals for schools across the country to reopen in the fall despite fears of another surge in coronavirus cases.
For the second time in two days, Trump Wednesday appeared alone in the White House briefing room without any members of the coronavirus task force to give an update on the pandemic.
He announced his administration will provide $5 billion for nursing homes in the worst-hit states, along with increased testing of staff, part of what he said was a strategy designed to protect the most vulnerable while allowing younger people to get back to work or school.
And, when asked whether he planned to send the children in his own family — son, Barron, and grandchildren — back to school, he said yes.
“I am comfortable with that, and we do have a national strategy. As you know, ultimately, it’s up to the governors of the states,” he said, adding that he wanted 100% of schools open.
