Trump's push to open economy could come at cost of lives.

President Donald Trump's desire to reopen the coronavirus-battered economy in a matter of weeks has thrust the administration into the delicate position of weighing the revival of commerce versus the value of American life

By AAMER MADHANI, LAURIE KELLMAN and KEVIN FREKING Associated Press March 26, 2020, 4:53 AM 7 min read 14:09 Trump continues to push for country to return to 'normal' life The president remained committed to restarting"normal" life around the country, though notably he said it would only be"sections" during a White House briefing. WASHINGTON -- The contrast could hardly be more stark. Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York has said that if all of his sweeping, expensive measures to stem the corornavirus saved one life, it would be worth it. President Donald Trump has another view: The costs of shutting down the economy outweigh the benefits, frequently telling Americans that 35,000 people a year die from the common flu. Though it may seem crass, the federal government actually has long made a calculation when imposing regulations, called “the value of a statistical life,” that places a price tag on a human life. It has been used to consider whether to require seat belts, airbags or environmental regulations, but has never been applied in a broad public health context. The question is now an urgent one given that Trump in recent days has latched on to the notion that the cure for the pandemic should not be worse than the disease and argued that “more people are going to die if we allow this to continue” if the economy remains closed. He has targeted a return a semblance of normalcy for the economy by Easter Sunday, April 12. Critics say he’s presenting the nation with a false choice at a moment when deaths and infections from the virus are surging. “We’re not going to accept a premise that human life is disposable,” said Cuomo, whose state has seen far more infections and death from COVID-19 than any other state. “And we’re not going to put a dollar figure on human life.” For decades, the federal government has made calculations on how policies intended to safeguard American health could impact the economy. Since the Reagan administration, federal agencies have been required to perform analysis of any proposed regulations that are expected to have $100 million or more impact on the economy. The Environmental Protection Agency, for example, conducts cost-benefit analysis to estimate in dollar terms how much people are willing to pay for reductions in their risk of death from adverse health conditions caused by pollution. The Transportation Department estimates the additional cost that consumers would be willing to bear for improvements in safety at $9.6 million. Now, the push-pull of when to re-open the economy during the coronavirus crisis centers on a similarly bleak question: What’s an economically acceptable death toll? Putting dollar figures on the value of life and health is inherently uncomfortable, one expert said. “People hate that question,” said Betsey Stevenson, an economics and public policy professor at the University of Michigan who served on the White House’s Council of Economic Advisers during the Obama administration."By laying out the math in such a crude way, people cringe when they see it.” Days into his own call for Americans to dedicate themselves for 15 days to social distancing, including staying home from work and closing bars and restaurants to help try to stall the spread of the disease, Trump has changed his tune. Trump has grumbled that “our country wasn’t built to be shut down” and vowed not to allow"the cure be worse than the problem.” “The LameStream Media is the dominant force in trying to get me to keep our Country closed as long as possible in the hope that it will be detrimental to my election success,” Trump tweeted Wednesday. “The real people want to get back to work ASAP. We will be stronger than ever before!” He also pushed back against suggestions that he is being cavalier about the prospect of more deaths being caused by a premature of reopening of the economy. “How many deaths are acceptable to me?” Trump told reporters Wednesday evening. “None.” But Democrats say that Trump was prioritizing the economy over the health and safety of Americans. "I’d like to say, let’s get back to work next Friday,” said former Vice President Joe Biden, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination. ”That’d be wonderful. But it can’t be arbitrary.” Trump certainly has his defenders. Fox News commentator Britt Hume has called it an “entirely reasonable viewpoint” that older Americans would be willing to sacrifice for the good of the economy, and Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has said he’s"all in" on lifting social distancing guidelines in order to help the economy. Mike Leavitt, a Health and Human Services secretary in the George W. Bush administration, said the battle against the virus is shaping into a “supremely local fight” and communities may need to periodically adjust as the crisis unfolds. “Each jurisdiction may not come to the same conclusion — because each jurisdiction may have different situations about shopping and businesses reopening,” Leavitt said in an email. In the recent past, the government has also put a dollar figure on American life in the aftermath of man-made calamities, including the 9/11 attacks and the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, which killed 11 and devastated the regional economy, to compensate victims. Kenneth Feinberg, who administered the victims’ funds stemming from those events, said the formula used in the nation’s courts was a simple one: What would the victim have earned over the course of their life at work but for the tragedy that took their life? On top of that, there was some added compensation for pain and suffering and emotional distress, he said. “It is a rather straightforward calculation,” Feinberg said. But when it comes to the current pandemic, Feinberg said calculating the impact is not so simple. “When somebody says, ‘You know the risk of the virus is not as great as the risks to everybody through a deteriorating economy,’ that’s a choice that everybody will have to make,” Feinberg said. In the case of the coronavirus crisis, some economists and policy experts say the pandemic continues to present too many unknowns to employ the sort of coldly calculated, cost-benefit analysis that’s been used to evaluate the impact of policies such as federal highway and air quality rules. “It doesn’t help to save the economy if a tremendous number of people have died or fallen ill and their lives are changed forever,” said Lisa Heinzerling, who grappled with regulatory impact on the economy as the head of EPA’s policy office at the beginning of the Obama administration. Northwestern University economists Martin Eichenbaum and Sergio Rebelo and German economist Mathias Trabandt said in a working paper published this week that optimal containment efforts would lead to deeper economic damage and that recession in the U.S. was inevitable. But the economists also projected that maintaining social-distancing measures before the U.S. hits its peak in infections “saves roughly half a million lives." Stepping back from efforts to preserve human life in the midst of an event of this scale could also have enormous impact on the trust of institutions for generations to come, said David Ropeik, a former instructor of risk communication at the Harvard School of Public Health, “The benefit of an all-out fight against a virus includes reassuring the public that the government is on their side. Backing off that fight reasonably questions whether the government we have created to protect us from things like this crisis will do so,” said Ropeik, the author of the book “How Risky Is It, Really?" “The loss of that to protect the economy is undermining that faith. How can you price that?” he asked. For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death. The vast majority of people recover. ——— Read more: ABC News

No really Probably not...there has to be a plan with thresholds to restart America working. You cant just say 'its over, go back to work.' Discussing a plan is a good thing. We need to open the economy. Hope he does. The media is using scare attics yo help the Democrats crash the economy. Not could WILL

'Could'. JFC IT WILL. NotDying4WallStreet We now top the list of cases. If that idiot opens everything back up we will pay for it by our lives. Not that he gives a damn but he needs to be shut down!! MSM injecting negativity into the President's optimism to own the conservatives. KMacMustDie Could huh? Hell anything 'could' happen. What never gets old is how the MSM always uses these terms in a negative light when covering our President. How about it 'could' be the shot in the arm that we need? Optimistic President...pessimistic media.

And there you have it folk's.The CHRISTIAN president says. GIVE YOUR LIFE.....Can you say FUCHER DICTATOR. 1TERMPRESIDENT. Well if his followers believe him and go to Trumps campaign his followers will be hit hard with the virus. Trump followers use your brain and think about it. Trump was at his resort with republicans that came down with the virus, trump was not tested he lied like always

not every place is the same. A grocer in montana should not have to close because of NY.

Trump calls on U.S. to 'protect our Asian American community' hours after referring to 'Chinese virus'The chairwoman of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus said Trump&39;s comments would not "be necessary if he and his supporters had not already endangered so many by spreading this toxic xenophobia." It is a Chinese virus. It's from China . China is a country not a race. It’s a Virus called corona or covid19 period, countless American Asian citizens are getting assaulted because Pres Sht for Brain keeps calling it the Chinese virus. Now he wants to “protect” them....they don’t call him Pres Moron for nothing. These are grave times to have bipolar leadership

He will be remembered so poorly..... Trump knows that but he doesn’t care. And he could care less! TrumpMadness 🤡 ⛳⛳⛳⛳⛳,💵💵💵💵💵💵 F the citizens of the USA. Lucifer 👹 is literally killing us AMEN American lives mean nothing to Trump. Proof is in that he procrastinated 10 weeks (middle of Dec. through Feb.) before taking this pandemic serious. Remember it was a Democratic Hoax according to Trump. Voters are not laughing

Trump doesn't give a shit about anything but his ego TrumpResign NOT could, WILL!! Stop downplaying this!!! ABC’s decision to punt on the story about the giant pedophile ring involving Epstein, Clinton, The Royal Palace, and other celebrities likely cost lives as well. Moron

Trump Sets Easter Goal For Reopening American EconomyPresident Trump on Tuesday afternoon couched earlier comments about the need to reopen the U.S. economy within weeks, emphasizing the decision would be data-driven and made in consultation with public health experts. I don't believe him, it's available but he will ignore all of that That would be nice if the President actually read things. This is what you got from his incoherent rambling? You're part of the problem

Why didn't you all mention the silly pork in the stimulus? Can you imagine if the shoe were on the other foot? 'Devils Advocate - Part 2 ©. Keeping America closed for business is guaranteed to cost lives. Trump is gaslighting the American people. He knows this but he doesn't care! Is not his family!!! Ur trumpy supporters ur better ask trumpy can ur go live with him!!

No it won’t But it will allow desperate families to feed their kids I want to get back to work! The numbers don’t add up to your faux panic. Report the facts stop being the enemy of the people. I think saying old people should die to improve the economy will really resonate with older voters. Chincke littled again ...the lamestream media trying to whip up a frenzy

San Francisco mayor slams Trump on coronavirus comment: 'Why are we still listening to the president?' Coronavirus : S.F. mayor slams Trump: 'Why are we still listening to the president?' San Poocisco Mayor 😂 Because her city is doing so well ... Because you're the Mayor of Shit City and need all the help you can get. Exactly! Children are seen not heard

I'm sorry but money for your cigarettes alcohol drugs crack PCP crystal meth fancy cars gold watches fancy rings and things does not come first before People's Health. You are a appearance obsessed materialistic brain disordered, you need medical help! 666 ABC is at it again. More propaganda. TRUMP AND HIS GOP GOVERNORS DON'T CARE ABOUT LIVES JUST DOLLARS AND MORE DOLLARS.

We all would love to be able to get on with our lives, but I think Trump will find the people and the States they live in know better the reality of the situation, and will stay put. 🖕 No it won’t. Y’all blow. How many? How many would die if we fell into a depression? What's ABC's plan for moving on after this pandemic? Be specific.

Why have we shut down for Covid?

Donald Trump sees best approval rating for three years amid coronavirus pandemicDespite criticism over the Trump administration's response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Americans' views of the president are improving. BULLS*IT!!!!!!!!! He might see it but we don't 🥴 We should let the ppl know

why do you give him air time to stand up there and why. He’s dangerous to the American people and doesn’t care how many die. Shame on you. the economy, whoever or whomever is president the next four years, this will be one of the GREATEST challenges, balancing the budget Yes some people want to get back to work but nobody's going to go back to work without two masks and two pairs of gloves the start with every single day that we work for the middle to lower class people where you'd call I'm not going to die to ring up your damn cigarettes or pen.

Please, please stop using scare tactics. Without actually helping the economy. Did ABC News come up with this subject on their own or was it another left wing network. Hmmmm! Will you people just stop? No wonder the latest poll has the media as the least trusted in this crisis! Do you guys ever listen to yourself or the America people?

Maybe too early and Trump acknowledges that.Question: do we close down until 0 cases are being recorded in the USA or World? 500 cases? 5000? 50,000. Could be over a year? No matter when we say open economy it will come at cost of lives! Is that going to be morally reprehensible? Blah, blah, blah ABC Snooze. You may not be very American and you may still have your plushy jobs but unlike you, Americans who are great at what they do are itching to get back to work. Your propaganda gets sooo old after a while.

Sherrod Brown Has a Message for America: Listen to Scientists, Not Donald TrumpOhio Senator Sherrod Brown is good and mad, and fighting to stop a coronavirus bailout that stiffs working people When is going to hire REAL journalists SenSherrodBrown In 2018 I was in school and didn't file taxes. I'm $150 short on paying 2019 taxes (self-employed). Gov closed my work. Landlord owns building outright, no fed-backed mortgage. All this equals no rebate, no UI & probably soon homeless and hungry. Thanks4NothingWashington SenSherrodBrown But yet he is ok with it having money it for the Kennedy Centers and illegal aliens and extra money for Representatives!!! HMMMM how is that helping AMERICANS in need?

Screw him. You think 🤔 Trump wants to ease restrictions by Easter on April 12th, but Gov. DeWine gave a news conference today where health officials said to expect a surge in outbreaks of possibly 6000 new cases per day in Ohio by the end of April. The state may see 40-70% of the population infected. I won’t get tired of saying it: HP

Stop with distorting the truth. He stated a target date. Like every goal setting leader. Without goals, people will sit on their ass. This statement is full of you know what! And example of the fact that he just doesn't care about the average American. Could? If it goes ahead as POTUS45 wants it most certainly will cost lives

He left out his greatest accomplishment in his brags. He is the most mentally challenged president in history. There we go with ABC bullshit

Coronavirus stimulus deal would prohibit federal aid for Donald Trump properties, Schumer saysRepublican and Democratic senators have reached a deal on a roughly $2 trillion stimulus package to stem the economic damage from the coronavirus outbreak. Good

Could come it will. I don't give a shit about all of the money I've lost,and will lose. I am driven by life and my family. WE CHOOSE LIFE! Maybe if we had tested people earlier, we wouldn’t be as bad as we are. I still have not heard why we could not use the test kits provided by other countries and the WHO.

Hold on happier days are just around the corner ‘The Worst Type Of Leader To Have In A Crisis’ Historian Ruth Ben-Ghiat has an urgent message during the coronavirus crisis: Authoritarians like Trump don't care about human life. They care about power. Too soon listen to your health officials That’s a funny commentary coming from the lib press who first said “Wuhan virus” (that’s racist, right?) and thought Trump was daft for trying to begin social distancing. Trump could snap his fingers and end CV, & Libs would complain about the noise of snapping.

You are living in the time to be in shape and get ready for anything! This Country has a bottom half not wealthy at all! End most the trouble by doing more in the country to handle the people get all into some level of wealth everyone makes gain free up revenue ends debt Yes maybe but save other people’s way to survive

President Trump will follow the advice of the doctors. He made that CLEAR! Terrible headline, but I’m not surprised It’ll be a balancing act indeed... but I’ll tell you I’m more worried about my husband dying of a heart attack because of the stress he is under as a small business owner who is losing thousands every week!

He didnt say he was going to open economy yet. Hes trying to give the American people hope You people are despicable !!! Never Trust trump!!!! It's all good I'm eating cake Well let the morons who think he’s the greatest thing since sliced bread listen to his bullshit and get sick Is msm essential? 很显然,美国政府选择了利润,而不是人民的生命

Unemployment kills far more than the virus. Look it up. What the hell do you media freaks think shutting down the economy accomplish? 1200 for our country? Majority of this country are not idiots We know distance, we know hygiene, We know symptoms, we know others are working Grocery stores, pharmacies, truckers, medical & hospital

He needs to set a good example and get him and his family out of isolation and back on the campaign trail. Open the economy by showing us there is nothing to worry about JIC you didnt know this: Everyone who is currently breathing will die. It's just a natural part of living. So to make a case that recovering from the Covid19 virus will cost lives is sensationalism. Expected behavior from ABC news!

Unacceptable! His job is to protect the American people. He failed. He didn’t close the boarders in January. He let 2 planes full of infected people into California army base knowing there was NO CURE. He’s a threat to the American public and needs to step down. He’s gonna get millions killed Billionaires must not become Millionaires therefore Trump places the Economy more important than Americans Lives.

“Could” Doctors & scientists agree it is not a good idea. In China the disease is reoccurring in people who survived the first wave. We can’t go back too soon. Could cost lives? You mean it will cost lives.

FAKE NEWS. Never ceases to amaze me how self centered and ignorant this man is! Billionaires must not become Millionaires therefore Trump places Economy more than Lives. The virus there is no medicine only maintain nearness and don't shake hands social distance TrumpleThinSkin’s push to get everyone back to work just shows how little our lives matter, it seems he all there for ya, until he’s losing money... then you become expendable, because NOTHING besides money matters... well except the election, so let’s VTO! 🤨

You people suck so bad. Stop the fear mongering! doubt this'll be around long. Trump negligence in Corona virus but this are Very denger So could not opening the economy. ABC (AMERICAN BROADCASTING CORONAVIRUS) news should talk to older people. I and probably most seniors would take our chances with precautions against the virus for the sake of our younger family members benefit.

He is doing the best he can but the fake news media has got to twist it around because they are against America. They would rather see great numbers of deaths. Trump says to many of you poor anyway... genocide

Negative news! He said he was hoping! But would listen to the experts Nooooooo surely not! FoxNews said that was rubbish!!! Congress or anyone needs to step in and stop the narcissistic sociopath. 'We the people' need a lawyer to sue all involved. Trump is prepared to force mass exposure and is willing to lose 1%, 2%, 5% or whatever more to get the economy back on track. He’s looking at it like his tolerance for loss on a stock price knowing it will come back. Population may come back. People won’t.

MGC3I And yet again, ABC News goes out of its way to find someone who can scream 'The Sky is Falling' and spread lies. Seriously, you people are disgusting. Will cost lives. Trump does not care - his only interest is 💰💰💰 fake news We need to get moving again There were 23,000 deaths from the flu last year. So far only 1000 from the Coronavirus. Stop the hate 😡

Trump,”oh well, what’s a few old people? I need to open my hotels and country clubs!” A total economic collapse will cost lives, too. Capitalists can't survive their workers being locked down. This virus should have been taken seriously when it was still manageable. What a mess. I challenge you to say one, just one thing positive about Trump

News Broadcasters hate hope for some reason. Trump doesn’t care about human lives. That has been obvious before he became president😞 Not opening the economy can cost lives. Your solution ? Optimism and positivity at a time of crisis how dare him. *WILL* come at the cost of lives. And when thousands and thousands of Americans are on welfare, are in depression ... or even worse commit suicide due to hard financial struggles... ABC will be 1st in line to blame Trump for that too.

Trump wants to cut social security by killing off all the old people! And some Republicans agree with him!

Trump virus Make no mistake THIS IS THE TRUMP VIRUS Burn in hell abc if it was a worthless dem you’d be riding in their crack He could care less. All he cares about is himself and how this makes him look. He has totally disgraced and degraded the office of the president. Get out of the news business. He's praying it would, nothing wrong with that and pretty sure he said he'll see how it goes. Just praying he's led by the spirit.

Opinion: he is saying economy is worth more than people. Interesting, it is the people who make it work, not the investors. This country was created by people who had nothing but innovation, determination and resilience. We have risen from the ashes B4 Trump made 33 false claims about the coronavirus crisis in the first two weeks of March By Daniel Dale and Tara Subramaniam, CNN Updated 6:59 PM EDT, Sun March 22, 2020

And, , we could get hit any moment by an asteroid that could wipe out all life on earth! /s He said he’d like to see. That’s not pushing anything. Yeah, no shit

How bad should it get before we say, get back to work? All life is precious, but a broken economy can cause much pain also. Besides a. Trump said he was hoping to start some sectors to possibly going back to work and b. States will ultimately decide when to give the OK. MM👇 Its simple. If you needed heart surgery you don't go to a Politician. Let the health experts dictate what direction we take and when. No Republicans or Democrats just health experts giving their best advice. The economy will bounce back what's the point of having a job if your ⚰

Those people are just collateral damage to a sociopath. If you morons listen if the time is right he’ll start opening things up this president has done more than any liberal president would have done all you people say not my president no check for you MAGA 2020 Nancy Pelosi said before the midterms, if there is collateral damage, SO BE IT.

He doesn’t care long as he stops losing money that’s all that matters to him. This Anti-American BS is tiring. It's a consideration, a hope, and it won't happen if it's considered too risky. How about we all remain hopeful and work together. The news industry is a dumpster fire and has been for sometime. It's what happens when you all group think.

Dems and their media scream racist when president did the travel ban from china now they want America to repeat the great depression because they think they will regain power DemocratsHateAmericans COULD?

And I could win the lotto. Stop the anti-Trump during this crisis. You and director Susan Rice or disgusting. tell trump for him or his family to go lend a hand at the local hospital! Lead by example trump No tell us how Democrats cost lives by delaying for 4 days the passing of crisis legislation in order to stuff it with things that have nothing to do with the virus.

Dear Fake News ABC, not opening up the economy in time would cost lives and livelihoods. It’s a tough balance, and your lies and Trump Hate aren’t helping anything. Younger TrumpCultists should be allowed to roam around and then go visit the older TrumpCultists; particularly in swing states! How long are you planning on sacrificing your childrens future for?

Several businesses are shut down that shouldn't be. Outside construction needs to continue which includes all the businesses that supports. Employers need rights to prevent employees coming to work sick. Of the few still working all are healthy. In fact the poor are generally the ones to suffer the most, which means 45 along with his heartless and greedy friends could care less!

So we just all hide at home forever..? There's a multitude of threats past the end of the driveway.. It WILL come at the cost of lives. It is not a matter of could.

Don Jr. is correct....you people really do suck. You quote Cuomo’s absurd notion as a measure of Trump’s wartime responsibility, and your many lemming readers follow you off the very cliff you build. Since you’re not leading this fight, stay the hell out of the way. Thanks for great honest reporting ABC that doesnt sugarcoat the socalled presidents callous disregard for human life as he prioritizes his reelection concerns

Crump 🤡 said he will win only too think about the election what a selfish con. People it’s time that America wakes up its always been about himself and $$ which his family has probably made plenty. He lacks this thing called compassion and empathy, which is not uncommon in the business world. Let's face it, it would be a plus not to care who you destroy by making yourself rich. Right? They hire smart people to work for them.

Never work again for fear of another outbreak Could being the key phrase. He’s not saying go back to normal. He’s saying that with Brix analysts and others they will assess the low risk areas and provide guidance. He’s not being reckless or rash. Trump wants Christian churches packed on Easter? Like he really cares! What about our Muslim and Jewish brothers and sisters? As usual he only cares about a portion of America. The white, evangelicals who support him in abundance.

Leave it to ABC to try and drive us apart instead of having hope. Wtf is wrong with you. Everyone needs hope and faith. He cares nothing about us all he cares about is the election wake up people Feel relief for a stimulus package, how? When the President lied for two months about the pandemic, failed to prepare for it, disregarded all advice to address it, lost control of it, and now wants to put you at risk by breaking isolation just to spend money as more people die.

The President ONLY said ' he would like it to open up again around Easter, only hopeful thinking on his part. NOT A PLAN. He doesn’t care. realDonaldTrump Trump told a group of Evangelicals that he didn't feel the need to seek forgiveness. Finally they have reached a common ground, but it is still not Jesus. It is 1,054 dead and counting, for the lies Donald told America and the ones Evangelicals told to put him in the White House.

I hope everyone in ABC gets fired in the next two weeks. Shut up you monsters. You are the enemy of the people and push false narratives to drive hate toward realDonaldTrump You play us as fools, and unfortunately there are 'a few' but the vast majority of us see right through your disgusting coverage. WE SUPPORT TRUMP MAGA KAG2020

There is no could about this. It is will. It will cost lives. Could? Really, could. Please. abc continue to spread communist China propaganda. and keeping it shut down too long will also cost lives

We all know this. Stop it. He said it’s flexible and look at the gd charts. Many states and areas can open. Certainly not New York or California. The last I read, he said he was hopeful. We are all hopeful, but hope doesn't mean it will happen. Also, there does need to be a restart plan. His will undoubtedly be delayed, but why bash recovery? AlwaysBashingConservatives

realDonaldTrump will blame the previous administration if the death toll is high and take credit for a low death toll due to his tremendous and beautiful efforts. How can people be kept safe Could? How many condolences letters he's sent out in this Pandemic? It's not in his forte! Is it bad to wish that MAGA morons should be the first to volunteer ?

Bullshit

this is life 😈 Open for business!!! M. Malicious E. Evil D. Despicable I. Insane A. Asses ABC KEEPS PUSHING.... Breaking! No matter what Trump does, will complain! You misspelled 'will' 3.2 million new jobless claims could also cost lives Not ‘could’ .... will come at the cost of lives Another disgusting headline. A similar argument could be made by not opening the economy. See how that works?

Trump's approval rating is as popular as he's ever been. Keep twisting his words while people are at home getting a chance to hear him for themselves. Just handing the election to him.

When you have an absolute dumbo in the White House you get absolutely stupid actions. POTUS This is a slow moving tragedy, years in the making. No shit. Not ‘it could’. It will. He’s culling the herd. 'Trump's push to open economy could come at cost of lives.' What kind of 'life' do you have if you have nothing for a job? Take a good hard look at what America is right now and has become the last 60 years.

Do better ...the experts have said that it WOULD come at a cost of lives. The orange man with the spray tan and the big scam is an idiot. You don’t say.... Well, look at the numbers...how many suicides will there be when someone loses everything? There’s been almost 300,000 worldwide already YTD MSM is the enemy of the people

Supposition, innuendo, and nothing more... ABC:another anti-Trump news (😂) media source that cannot be counted on to keep the county truly informed‼️ It’s not okay, it’s April 12th, so tomorrow ALL people back to work 🤡s... It’ll be gradual if we can safely return.Estupido ABC! 1000 have died - and you all think it’s ok to put 3.3 million people out of work. IDIOTS!

Narcissist have to Narcissist. Tyrants have to Tyrant. Dictators have to be DICKS. COVID19 TrumpLiesAmericansDie He doesn’t give two f** about lives. Wrong! Fake News! It will save lives! 'Trump's push to open economy could come at cost of lives.' Wake up America! If you don't have a job you don't have much of a 'life'. We've been depressed since 80's.

You keep talking about this when he already said he wont do it until things improve!! The media is worse than the virus Yes but he’s a stable genius so I’m going with that! Uh, you might want to check the initial jobless claims number you brainiacs. “Could”? You f’n cowards

It’s about him. He does not care about other people. Idiot Wanting something and doing something are two completely different things Trump should pay attention to my leader Trudeau. He is telling all Canadians that it is going to be months . Not weeks. Your country has alot more cases. I wish my American neighbors luck. And please stay safe and liten to the science not Trump.

This is irresponsible reporting. Stop trying to put bodies at Trumps feet. Trump is giving up the elderly for lent to help the stock market. Remember, the US medical response to COVID-19 is lead by a guy who stares at an eclipse without protection. There's no could about it. It definitely will. 3.3 million job losses may also cost lives.

Massive spike in calls to suicide hotline. How many people will quarantine kill? I thought it was only communism that would callously sacrifice their population for the sake of it's economic and political ideology?

'Could'? So will a depression Oh stfu antoniodivine More lives. Even more than his inaction has cost us so far... You people can go straight to hell. They're saving a special place for you. Do you listen to him? It’s a target date, not set in stone!!!! PLEASE stop, excuse the term, but stirring up shit and scaring people with inaccuracies!!!! We can’t take it anymore!!!

OMG you media assholes make everything worst case scenario! What holds true in NYC doesn’t necessarily apply to Central Wyoming! You have to be braindead to be a democrat A country will not survive an indefinite shutdown... of course, that seems to be the goal of some. Trump opening the economy WILL come at a cost of lives. I fixed the heading for you. You're welcome.

Could I will cost lives.
