(TheLibertyRevolution.Com)- President Donald Trump was forced to cancel his plans to reopen the U.S. economy by Easter weekend. The president followed the advice from his team of experts in the White House Coronavirus Task Force, and instead opted to extend the social distancing guidelines for a further 30 days.
Now, it looks like the president is willing to explore radical new options that could reopen the economy by as early as next month.
According to sources close to The Washington Post, the president has been working “behind the scenes” with a team of experts on plans to “reopen much of the country next month.”
The Post claims that the president remains concerned about the ongoing damage being done to the American economy and is working on a strategy that would return the United States mostly to normality by May 1.
“In phone calls with outside advisors, Trump has even floated trying to reopen much of the country before. The end of this month, when the current federal recommendations to avoid social gatherings and work from home expire,” sources told the outlet.
Trump is reportedly checking unemployment and stock market numbers regularly and is dismayed by the damage done to the economy. The sources who make the claims remain anonymous, but it rings true. The president has been visibly eager to reopen the economy for weeks now, and even recently announced that he is launching a second task force specifically focused on reopening the economy.
On Friday, the president also expressed frustration with the Democrats who are blocking a bill that would help small businesses. This isn’t the first time the Democrats have pulled this kind of trick. During the third phase of coronavirus relief legislation negotiations, Democrats withdrew support for the bipartisan bill and proposed their own legislation that included a host of far-left talking points.
Instead of trying to help the American people, Democrats tried to force Green New Deal policies through Congress under the guise of coronavirus relief.
Democrats are blocking a 251 Billion Dollar funding boost for Small Businesses which will help them keep their employees. It should be for only that reason, with no additions. We should have a big Infrastructure Phase Four with Payroll Tax Cuts & more. Big Economic Bounceback!

If the president can pull off reopening the U.S. economy sooner rather than later then Americans will thank him for it, but he’ll need a plan to protect lives first!
