He’s not messing around.
According to Breitbart News, President Donald Trump slammed Democrats stating they are moving slowly to reopen the country for political reasons.
“The great people of Pennsylvania want their freedom now, and they are fully aware of what that entails. The Democrats are moving slowly, all over the USA, for political purposes. They would wait until November 3rd if it were up to them. Don’t play politics. Be safe, move quickly!” he said.
When asked to respond to criticism that he’s also politically motivated to grow the economy ahead of the election, Trump said, “Well, I think that if you look at Pennsylvania as an example, if you look at various other states, I won’t get into them, the people want to go back. The numbers are getting to a point where they can, and it just seems to be no effort on certain blue states to get back into gear.
“The people aren’t going to stand for it. They want to get back. They’re not going to stand for it. They want our country open. I want our country open too. I want it open safely, but I want it open,” he said during a White House Rose Garden press conference on COVID-19 testing.
“Don’t forget. People are dying the other route. You can go with the enclosed route. Everything is closed up. You’re in your house. You’re not allowed to move. People are dying with that too. You look at drug addiction. You look at suicides. You look at some of the things that are taking place. People are dying that way too,” he said.
“You can make the case it’s in even greater numbers. So it’s a situation that some people and I’ve noticed that some states could be moving more quickly and also at the same time safety. Safety is paramount, but people are dying in the lockdown position too. Everybody understands that,” Trump said. You can read the full article here.
