Trump willing to consider more aid to reopen schools, Kudlow says
www.reuters.com

...U.S. President Donald Trump is willing to consider additional aid to re-open schools, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Monday.

"The president has said that he's open to suggestions about additional funding if it appears that would be necessary in certain states and localities, so he will look at that," Kudlow told reporters outside the White House.

Trump has been pushing for schools to re-open for the beginning of the school year in the fall, even while the coronavirus surges in states across the country.

Last week, Trump attacked the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for school reopening guidelines that he said were too expensive and impractical.

The Trump administration has argued that schools must re-open in order to get the battered economy back on track, but critics have questioned whether it can be done safely. ...

[emphasis mine]

Well, threatening to withhold money from states that put the health of their children and teachers first didn't work.

So now Pres Trump looks to be trying the bribery approach to get schools to re-open. I wonder if the money will be coming out of Trump campaign funds? Or will Pres Trump be using taxpayer money to put our children and teachers at risk?

"Trump willing to consider more aid to reopen schools, Kudlow says"

WTF is "aid" gonna do to make the virus less contagious???

Trump is impotent in this fight because he can't bribe, sue, or hush money the virus away.

The whole damn GOP is impotent. So they had to become a death cult.

"Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish been caught, and the last stream poisoned, will we realize we cannoteat money."

It's only a matter of time until a governor responds to something trump says by publically declaring "F*** that clown"

"She is last person that should have been putting herself into ANY classroom - or even out in the general public for that matter."

But she was essential.

Which means her labor was more important than her life.

DeVos wouldn't want her staying at home.
Trump wouldn't want her staying at home.
Neither would you.

Also, STC_918, creating a new account since your last one was banned, well...

You're not supposed to be here.

"I am doing essential work here. I was banned for speaking the truth."

Without your victim status, you'd be nothing.

"I was convicted of thought crimes and banned."

So why come back.
To save my soul?
Mighty white of you!

STC 918 claims to be a liberal Democrat in his profile. That's just a lie and he's been here one whole day. Not worth debating with. His ideas are basically pure Trump so his profile is, as I said, just a lie.

But a HUGE chance of them spreading infections to their extended families and neighbors at home.

You are so freaking stupid. But if you didn't insist on seeing other people die (a true sign of Trumpism), we might let that pass.

Yeah.
"Near zero."
14,740 is "near zero."

Betsy DeVos says that "only" 0.02% of children will probably die as a result of schools re-opening.
That's 14,740 children.
That's about 40 times the number of school shooting victims from the last 10 years.

Per what time period?

#22 | Posted by Danforth at 2020-07-14 03:01 PM | Reply

I believe 0.02% comes from the CDC case fatality rate for under-18s.
