Trump claims he has ‘total’ authority over reopening economy

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump claimed the “total” authority to decide how and when to reopen the economy after weeks of tough social distancing guidelines aimed at fighting the new coronavirus. But governors from both parties were quick to push back, noting they have primary responsibility for ensuring public safety in their states and would decide when it’s safe to begin a return to normal operations.

Trump would not offer specifics about the source of his asserted power, which he claimed, despite constitutional limitations, was absolute.

“When somebody is president of the United States, the authority is total,” Trump said Monday at the White House. “The governors know that.”

President Trump has predicted an economic boom once stay-at-home and other restrictions are lifted. But economic activity is likely to remain subdued until the threat of the coronavirus recedes.

WASHINGTON — Walter Isenberg is the sort of business owner President Trump has in mind when he talks about the need to start lifting coronavirus lockdowns and reopen the American economy. Mr. Isenberg’s hotel and restaurant group in Denver has seen its revenues drop from $3 million a day last year to $40,000 a day now.

But Mr. Isenberg has no expectation that his company, Sage Hospitality Group, will see the quick economic “boom” that Mr. Trump has predicted, even after state officials allow his properties to begin hosting customers again.

  1. Thanks for your thoughts. One thing we’ve noticed is always that banks and financial institutions know the spending behavior of consumers and understand that the majority of people max out their credit cards around the holiday seasons. They correctly take advantage of this real fact and commence flooding the inbox as well as snail-mail box together with hundreds of no-interest APR card offers immediately after the holiday season concludes. Knowing that for anyone who is like 98 of all American open public, you’ll hop at the chance to consolidate financial debt and transfer balances towards 0 rate credit cards.
