The only 6 killer reactions you need to Trump’s plan to end the US lockdown
Trump’s coronavirus response has flip-flopped more times than a fish on a quay, from being sure that Covid-19 was less to worry about than the flu, to warning people that it was an unprecedented crisis and to now insisting that it can’t take precedence over the economy.
This tweet was very telling.
WE CANNOT LET THE CURE BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM ITSELF. AT THE END OF THE 15 DAY PERIOD, WE WILL MAKE A DECISION AS TO WHICH WAY WE WANT TO GO!

It seems that far from assessing the situation, he plans to begin removing restrictions and getting the US back to work.
Our people want to return to work. They will practice Social Distancing and all else, and Seniors will be watched over protectively & lovingly. We can do two things together. THE CURE CANNOT BE WORSE (by far) THAN THE PROBLEM! Congress MUST ACT NOW. We will come back strong!

The announcement hasn’t gone down well with experts, or anyone apart from rich Trump supporters.
YESSSSSSSS! Pedal to the metal to protect the over 70 crowd and let the rest of us resume life! https://t.co/BlOWQtGtFy

I cannot emphasize this enough. HUMAN LIVES ARE WORTH MUCH MORE THAN THE DOW JONES INDUSTRIAL AVERAGE. The economy is important but what use is money if you and your loved ones are dead? Money can always be made later. But your life cannot be refunded and purchased again.

These responses really tell it like it is.

This can be the campaign poster to persuade the public to get back out there.

Political commentator Tea Pain had a suspicion about an ulterior motive.
Holy Crap. Trump figures he'll get another term if there's no one left to vote against him. https://t.co/8JF4XfiSZ3

Good luck to the 73-year-old unfit man who likes handshakes in avoiding the deadly virus.
This tweet from Hillary Clinton boiled the situation down to its essence.
Please do not take medical advice from a man who looked directly at a solar eclipse.
