Sure, he wanted a number of states to be “liberated” earlier this week, but apparently, Georgia isn’t one of them. This, as President Trump is publicly disagreeing with the Governor of Georgia on reopening non-essential businesses by tomorrow.
Trump says he’s spoken with Governor Brian Kemp and shared his opinion, but noted that Kemp must ultimately do what he thinks is best for Georgia residents. The President says opening businesses like spas, beauty salons, barber shops and tattoo parlors in Phase One “violates federal guidelines” and it'd be best if Kemp waited until Phase Two. Kemp says restaurants will reopen on Monday.
“Our next measured step is driven by data and guided by state public health officials,” Kemp offers via Twitter. “We will continue with this approach to protect the lives - and livelihoods - of all Georgians.”
