Trump Orders Total Shut-Down: Restrictions on Gatherings, Commerce, and Travel
President Donald J. Trump continues to take coronavirus seriously, which has done since his travel ban to infected countries, which were largely castigated as “racist” and “xenophobic” by the nation’s Democrats. And less than an hour ago, President Trump issued a directive to the country to ban gatherings over ten people, most commerce, and discretionary travel.
President Donald Trump’s coronavirus task force on Monday issued new, stricter guidelines to stop coronavirus. This includes a directive to close bars, restaurants and other venues where people gather. His limit for gatherings is ten people, which will scuttle most church-houses across the nation.
Trump said, “My administration is recommending that all Americans, including the young and healthy, work to engage in schooling from home when possible, avoid gathering in groups of more than ten people, avoid discretionary travel and avoid eating and drinking in bars, restaurants, and public food courts.”
He continued, “If everyone makes this change or these critical changes and sacrifices now, we will rally together as one nation and we will defeat the virus, and we are going to have a big celebration altogether. With several weeks of focused action, we can turn the corner and turn it quickly — a lot of progress has been made.”
It is unclear how much of his directive can be enforced by the federal government, but it is presumed that state governors will oblige the president by issuing emergency edicts with more teeth. Additionally, it is presumed the airline industry and other transportation companies will follow suit, betting on their eligibility to receive relief aid.
Hunker down, America.
