Trump’s Reopening Collides with Reality

From Politico: How Trump’s reopening plans could collide with reality. Consumer and business behavior is mostly out of the president’s ability to control. Some excerpts:

Trump can fire off tweets, attempt to bully states into lifting social restrictions and otherwise declare America open for business. But he can’t force companies to reopen or ramp up production until owners and executives believe their workers are ready.

He also can’t make consumers flock back to malls, bars, restaurants, sports arenas or other public areas until they feel comfortable they‘ll be safe from the coronavirus.
