President Donald Trump demanded local school boards reopen schools during a late night tweet sent after 11 p.m. on Monday.
“OPEN THE SCHOOLS!!!” Trump demanded, in all capital letters with three exclamation marks.
The president was harshly criticized for his tweet, here’s some of what people were saying:
You can’t even get your own son’s school to open.
They have refused.
The school where your son Barron is being educated refuses to open because it’s not safe.
Now sit there, eat your Big Mac, and shut up.

How damn ignorant can you be? If we open up schools that will be the trigger for a second wave. Just one case spreads it to hundreds in each school. Who bring it home to their parents and grandparents. We are going to kill a generation of mothers and fathers cause your stupid ass

Why don’t YOU sit your stupid ass in a classroom with a bunch of kids all day for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week for a MONTH straight and prove that it’s safe.
We’re not sacrificing OUR kids for YOU, asshole.

You can’t open the schools when the pandemic is not under control. The other rich countries are opening their schools safely because they controlled the virus outside the schools first

Your kid isn’t going to school because it’s considered too dangerous. Why should other parents take the risk?
