Trump and some of his top officials are growing more anxious with social distancing guidelines put in place to combat the coronavirus, sources close to the White House effort said. One senior official said the President is losing patience with the period of national self-isolation that has frozen the US economy.
Meanwhile, the public health experts advising the President and his team on the coronavirus pandemic are continuing to argue that the broad guidelines urging people to work from home, avoid restaurants and large gatherings should remain in place."
"On Monday, Trump began sending retweets that seem to be encouraging an end to strong social distancing measures after the current 15-day period, despite concern from public health officials that it won't be long enough to blunt the worst of the coronavirus."
"On Monday he retweeted one user, responding to his original tweet, who wrote, "Correct. Fifteen days, then we keep the high risk groups protected as necessary and the rest of us go back to work."
This the same day that the US Surgeon General says on TV:
"This week, it's going to get bad. ... We really, really need everyone to stay at home."
And when Dr Fausi is saying:
"I can't jump in front of the microphone and push him down," Fauci told Science Magazine on Sunday.
