President Trump tweeted Monday, “For the purpose of creating conflict and confusion, some in the Fake News Media are saying that it is the Governors decision to open up the states, not that of the President of the United States & the Federal Government. Let it be fully understood that this is incorrect…”

He continued on reopening the country.

“It is the decision of the President, and for many good reasons. With that being said, the Administration and I are working closely with the Governors, and this will continue. A decision by me, in conjunction with the Governors and input from others, will be made shortly!”

Various news sources report that the White House team who will advise the president on reopening the nation will be headed by new White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and will include Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Purdue, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette, Labor Secretary Gene Scalia, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, and acting director of the Office of Management and Budget Russ Vought.

Also on board will be chief economic advisor Tom Philipson, and White House advisers Larry Kudlow, Peter Navarro, Chris Liddell, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. Governors, state officials, business leaders, military officers, and public health officials will also be consulted. But the president knows the buck stops with him.

He has said this could be the single most important decision of his presidency. It very well might be. At any rate, it certainly will be the most important decision in regards to his presidential reelection campaign.

If Americans continue to feel confident in his lead, as they do now, and the economy rebounds at least somewhat, then his chances for a win are strong.

However, the Democrats will be nipping at his heels the entire time. They will hope for his failure and will try to make it happen. That it also would be a failure for the country is something they intentionally do not factor in. Such is their sense of patriotism.
