Just heard according to CNN Trump is wanting schools to open.

Pressuring the Governors.

First the meat plants now schools.

Asshole does not care how many people will die.

Just get back to normal.

No way the kids the four kids on the farm are going back to school.

They are doing well online.

2. The school year is almost over, and in many states

it's been canceled for the rest of the term. He can't make the governors re-open the schools. While it's true that children are less likely to become seriously ill, occasionally they do and some have died; and even if they don't get very sick or remain asymptomatic, they can take the bug home to their families.

5. Schools are under local control.

That is why we have elected school boards. They work with the states for standards, funding and calendars, among other things. Some things are mandated at the state level. State and local officials will make those decisions, not the orange madman.

18. Right - my 6 yr old niece has Asthma - She will not be returning to school under any circumstances

For the school year. They keep saying that children will not suffer the same consequences and forgetting that quite a bit of children have asthma. What about them?

Also, there was a report yesterday in the UK - giving warning that they are seeing increases in toxic syndromes and Kawasaki disease in children. Some of those children also tested positive for Covid 19 so they are wondering if this uptick in toxic syndrome and Kawasaki is a result of Covid 19. My niece also had Kawasaki disease when she was 4 yrs old. Its a rare illness, if not treated promptly can lead to cardiac issues.

There is a lot we don't know about this virus. It is appalling that politicians are so free wheeling with the public's health.

some, with health issues. Hard enough to keep them when it isn't a threat to their lives.

Pick any two out of each hundred that you are ok with dying.

24. It literaly hurts people having a fool as president. He's calling for things opening because he...

thinks that will bring back the economy before the election. The deaths, even of children are of no concern to him but his non-logic is so faulty—betting that the dead will be overlooked with a raging Dow is the unempathetic bad beat of all time, it will just drag him and the country down further. Any sentient being can see that but he's way past that as the sentient meter registers zero when pointed towards him.

Every inclination, thought and move he's made in this crisis has been astoundingly wrong, and that continues. Our hope is November and Biden's election.
