State, local officials balk at Trump's hope for an Easter reopening amid coronavirus outbreak
Wednesday, 25 March 2020 Elected officials in some of the areas hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic are balking at President Trump’s hope that the U.S. economy will be “opened up and just raring to go by Easter” – calling the president’s statement everything from “inconceivable” to “incredibly dangerous.”
Mayor Eric Garcetti, in a not-so-subtle response to President Donald Trump, said that the city would not revoke measures to stop the spread of the illness until it was safe. And Gov. Gavin Newsom agreed in his daily update, slamming Trump for setting up a timeline that he said was impossible.
