As Scientists Warn COVID-19 Second Wave, Trump Says Country Won’t Close

Scientists from the Obama Administration are warning the U.S. has three months before the second wave of COVID-19 infections. In their seven-page report, the group of nine scientists are advising the nation to restock on medical supplies before the fall and not to count on a vaccine being developed.

President Trump’s response? Let it come. The President says the country will be ready and that officials will “put out the fire” if it happens. What won’t happen? Closing the country as it has been. Trump told reporters he won't close the country.

“People say that’s a very distinct possibility,” Trump offered. “We are going to put out the fires. We’re not going to close the country,” Trump said. “We can put out the fires. Whether it is an ember or a flame, we are going to put it out. But we are not closing our country.”
