President Donald Trump on Saturday said he would use “facts and instincts” to make a decision on whether to recommend opening up areas of the country for working life to resume amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In a phone interview on “Justice with Judge Jeanine” on Fox News, the president said: “I think it's going to be the toughest decision I ever made and hopefully the most difficult I will ever have to make. I hope I'm going to make the right decision. I will be basing it on a lot of very smart people, a lot of professionals, doctors and business leaders. There are a lot of things that go into a decision like that. And it's going to be based on a lot of facts and instincts."
“People want to get back to work. ... We are setting up a council of some of the most distinguished leaders in virtually every field, including politics, business and medical. And we'll be making that decision fairly soon,” he added.
Asked if he had a message for the American people coping with the outbreak’s impact on Easter weekend, the president said: “I love the people of our country. And we are bringing our country back. I want to pay my deepest love and respect to all the families and friends of all who perished.”
The press briefing on coronavirus developments that has become a daily fixture was not held Saturday, although Vice President Mike Pence was scheduled to hold a briefing with the virus task force in the Situation Room that was closed to the media.
