When Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) called President Trump last Sunday, he delivered a blunt message: If you reopen the nation's economy too early against the advice of public-health experts, you will own the deaths from the novel coronavirus that follow.

Trump's stalwart ally also warned that the president wouldn't be the only one held responsible. Graham said the Republican Party itself risks being defined ahead of this fall's elections as prioritizing commerce and the stock market over the health and safety of the American people, according to three White House officials and a GOP lawmaker who spoke on the condition of anonymity to comment frankly.
