Trump Demanded Schools Reopen, His Experts Warned of ‘Highest Risk’

By Eileen Sullivan and 

WASHINGTON — Federal materials for reopening schools, shared the week President Trump demanded weaker guidelines to do so, said fully reopening schools and universities remained the “highest risk” for the spread of the coronavirus.

The 69-page document, obtained by The New York Times and marked “For Internal Use Only,” was intended for federal public health response teams to have as they are deployed to hot spots around the country. But it appears to have circulated the same week that Vice President Mike Pence announced that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would release new guidelines, saying that the administration did not want them to be “too tough.” It is unclear whether Mr. Trump saw the document, nor is it clear how much of it will survive once new guidance is completed.

(The cover page of the document is dated July 8, 2019, an obvious typographical error since the novel coronavirus did not exist then.)

What is clear is that federal health experts are using a road map that is vastly different from what Mr. Trump wanted.

    Actually, Carol, the COVID-19 bio-weapon did exist then. It would be on its way to Wuhan in the fall of 2019. The US knew this back in the second week of November and warned the Israeli’s about it…

    I’m also certain that this whole scenario was discussed in the classified top-level coronavirus meetings back in March…

    China beat COVID-19 and we are blowing it. I’m sure the real PTB knew this would happen. They knew that the dumbfuck Trumpsters would refuse to wear masks, hit the bars and beaches, and even have COVID-19 parties to pass the virus around. This was a well-planned attack on the US working class. The resulting implosion of the US economy will make millions of them as superfluous as pack animals. That’s undoubtedly why the’re engaging in all manner of self-destructive almost suicidal behavior. This will not end well for the USA as we know it.

    • Tommy, Spot on in your description of Americans! There is not way to make, the ones you have described as not all are the same)them how to care about others and that is what this is coming down to. As for the date and description of the document, I would suspect this is a compilation of activities to deal with infectious diseases in pandemic form, rather than one that was written up for use during the coronavirus pandemic. Viruses that are airborne are spread in the same way and there would be tactics to stop the spread, so much of what is in the document was already thought up at previous intervals and added to.
