Where is he going to find another 3 people to name as ultimate leader like he did the last time.  Remember when they started arguing at the microphone and he just walked out without making a decision?  Now he wants to have TWO dysfunctional groups in charge.  

 

The man could not run a McDonald's. If his dad had not been rich, he would be living under a bridge now.

You'll have to ask that one to your Democrat representatives who are looking for new ways to implement "the new green deal" in all their $$ programs.  Just think how bad the situation would be if the Democrats were in charge!

Bad support article as it does nothing to move the Green New Deal forwarded. It is an article by a reporter who covers that industry and lays out where they like all business want help as a result of the Trump virus mess. You speak of money. Trump will have cost us billions by his actions in making this problem worse with inaction. Trump does not even know how the virus got in to NYC. He says China where the fact is it came from Europe. Now if you want to save money the step is get rid of Trump and replace him with a person who understands above the grade school level. Based on Facts nice to see you not supporting Trump for all the money he has cost us.

    Apparently some missed the groundwork that is being laid for opening up the economy...and it requires lots more testing.   And that sounds stupendous right up until people understand that the percent of people that have been tested in the US is 1-2%.     

    I wonder is all the RW seniors here are going to stay at home indefinitely, as you have no real reason to exit out of 'stay at home" process - as you are not part of the workers needed to open the economy.

In order to reopen the economy, we must prioritize the importance of jobs and get the economy running again.  First what needs to be done is obtain enough tests (hopefully the 5 minute test) to test every person returning to work so they at least won't be the source of infection and follow up on those tested once a week with another test. If you test positive, you don't come back to work unless you test negative. Once enough tests are available, get the next set of high priority workers going with the same drill.  In parallel with this effort, they should continue studying mitigation techniques as well as possible vaccines.

 

For the positive cases, they should be able to obtain even experimental drugs EASILY without any CDC or FDA blessings.

President Donald Trump is planning to launch a second coronavirus task force that focuses on the economic devastation caused by the pandemic, NBC News reported Thursday, citing a senior administration official.

 

The second task force will include Trump’s new chief of staff, Mark Meadows, along with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow, NBC reported.

 

Trump could announce the task force as soon as this week. The Washington Post first reported on the task force.

 

The news comes a day after former Vice President Joe Biden became the apparent Democratic nominee to take on Trump this November, after Sen. Bernie Sanders dropped out of the race. Trump’s core argument for his reelection has been the country’s economic success and growth under his watch, which has been undermined by the sudden, devastating impact of the coronavirus outbreak on American businesses and workers.

 

White House spokesman Judd Deere told CNBC in a statement that “President Trump’s policies took this economy to record setting historic highs for all Americans but this unforeseen, unprecedented crisis has hurt many workers and businesses.”

 

“The President wants to see this economy open again so people can get back to work, but scientific data will drive the timeline on those decisions because his number one priority is to protect the safety and well-being of the American people,” Deere said.

 

The new White House group would be formed alongside the existing COVID-19 task force, which is led by Vice President Mike Pence and includes health experts such as National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci and response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx.

 

Trump has attended that group’s daily briefings at the White House, using them as general press conferences and de facto campaign rallies, as well as updates about his administration’s progress in combating the spread of the virus.

 

The new task force is not expected to meet every day, NBC reported.

 

It was unclear when or where the idea of an economic task force first took root. Trump first signaled his openness to the plan on Saturday, when he responded to a tweet from Fox News host Dana Perino advocating for a “2nd task force assembled at direction of POTUS to look ahead to reopening of the economy.”

 

“Good idea Dana!” the president tweeted.

 

The coronavirus outbreak, which began near the city of Wuhan in China’s Hubei province, has rapidly spread across the globe, infecting at least 1.5 million people and killing at least 89,733, according to data from Johns Hopkins University as of Thursday morning.

 

Government leaders in the U.S. and around the world have scrambled to slow the pandemic by imposing harsh containment measures, such as ordering residents to stay home and forcing nonessential businesses to close.

 

Those moves have hobbled entire industries — especially the retail, transportation and tourism industries — prompting massive spikes in unemployment and an unprecedented market rout. The United States has lost 10% of its workforce in just three weeks, according to Labor Department data released Thursday ....

 

While medical experts like Fauci have stressed the importance of keeping up the containment measures, Trump and other officials have expressed impatience with the social distancing policies that have led the previously strong U.S. economy to crumple so quickly. 

 

Earlier this week, conservative economist Stephen Moore gave CNBC further details on a commission or task force he said was being envisioned by the White House, focused on reopening the economy.

 

“The idea here would be a commission that would have to report back to the president, I think, in no longer than three weeks,” Moore said Monday, adding that he speaks with top administration officials almost daily.

 

“The idea would be getting leading authorities, world renowned business people, economists, experts to come up with ideas about steps that could be taken to reopen the economy.”

 

Moore added, “I think what’s being envisioned is a totally independent group that wouldn’t be funded and organized like a presidential commission, but instead would be more informal, and able to work more quickly and efficiently.”

 

Moore suggested that conservative economist Art Laffer, who recently received a Presidential Medal of Freedom from Trump, be tapped to lead the commission.

 

But in recent days, Meadows has emerged as a more likely candidate to lead the task force, though NBC reports that no final decision has been made.
