Trump reverses course on power to 'reopen' states amid virus


April 15, 2020

President Donald Trump spoke Tuesday at the White House about the coronavirus response.

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump said Tuesday he's open to some states "reopening" before federal social distancing guidelines expire at the end of month, as he appeared to back off his claim of absolute authority to decide when the time was right to act.

Hours after suggesting that the bipartisan concerns of governors about his assertion of power would amount to an insurrection, Trump abruptly reversed course, saying he would leave it to governors to determine the right time and manner to revive activity in their states. Trump said he would be speaking with governors, probably on Thursday, to discuss his administration's plans.
