Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told Politico Friday that she is considering keeping the House of Representatives out of session longer than the April 20th return-from-recess date, and may not bring Congress back until well into May — and she’s warned President Donald Trump to keep the country under lock-down even longer.
Pelosi wants the country in economic lock-down much longer.
“Nobody can really tell you that and I would never venture a guess. I certainly don’t think we should do it sooner than we should,” Pelosi said. “This has taken an acceleration from when we started this. Little did we know then that at this point, we’d be further confined.”
She also suggested that Trump’s advisers rein the president in if he moves too quickly to restore economic function: “I would hope that the scientific community would weigh in and say, ‘You can’t do this, it is only going to make matters worse if you go out too soon.’”
“Hopefully we’re going to be opening up …. very, very, very, very soon, I hope,” Trump said at the daily White House coronavirus briefing. “We’re going to open up strong, very successfully and I’d like to say even more successfully than before.”
Trump is also creating an economic recovery task force inside the White House to study this issue. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow and other top administration officials are expected to be part of the group.
The situation is frustrating enough as it is, nobody really knows when our lives will start to get back to some form of normality and with so many different opinions on what is actually taking place, it is mind numbing to sift through the intel to form what truth we can.
Pelosi continues to prove all she is after is money and to destroy President Trump at any cost, even if that cost is American lives and our nations economy.
