Trump Declares He Has Power to 'Open Up' States, Not Governors

Trump didn't say which authority he could use to force opening
It's not clear if the country would comply with an order

President Donald Trump declared Monday that he has the power to "open up" states and relax social-distancing practices adopted to combat the coronavirus outbreak, not governors.

He didn't elaborate on how he reached his conclusion. The Trump administration issued guidance March 16 recommending Americans isolate themselves from one another to curb the spread of the virus, days after many governors, municipal leaders, businesses and families had already adopted the practices themselves.

It isn't clear if the country would comply should Trump demand people return to work and school, particularly if the outbreak hasn't yet abated.

Make no mistake: this tweet isn't "ignorant." It sets up the premise to blame governors who "disobey" Trump's call to reopen the country when he does it. It sows confusion and stokes anger at people other than himself. Doesn't matter if it's constitutionally correct.
