Lindsey Graham begs Trump not to back off COVID-19 containment as reports emerge that he’s growing impatient

Published

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Monday begged President Donald Trump to not prematurely give up on the encouragement of social distancing in an effort to restart the American economy.

Writing on Twitter, Graham tried to convince Trump that social distancing was still the right response and the best way to contain the disease’s damage to both the economy and public health.

“We are fighting a two-front war — trying to destroy the virus while keeping the economy afloat,” Graham wrote. “As Dr. Fauci has consistently said, we should always err on the side of doing more — not less — when it comes to containment. President Trump’s best decision was stopping travel from China early on. I hope we will not undercut that decision by suggesting we back off aggressive containment policies within the United States.”

Multiple reports on Monday suggested that Trump is already growing impatient with medical experts’ strategy of promoting social distancing, and the president himself has signaled on Twitter that he wants to end social distancing within the next two weeks to send people back to work.

“COVID is the White House’s focus right now,” one senior White House official told the website. “Our data was showing it was beginning to subside in late May and early June. As the public started giving up on many of the mitigation practices, we had to adapt.”

President Donald Trump kicked off Thursday morning racist and misogynistic attacks against powerful Democratic women. His targets: presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski, and U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

In an early morning interview with Fox News Business's Maria Bartiromo the president called U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) "condescending" and a "Mad Woman."
