Trump Says He Feels "Comfortable" Sending Son and Grandchildren To School


President Trump, pushing for schools across the country to reopen in the fall, said during yesterday's coronavirus briefing that he would be comfortable sending his son and grandchildren back to school in the fall.

He was asked if he would be comfortable with sending his 10 grandchildren and 14-year-old son Barron to school. He added that his administration has a national strategy to help schools reopen in the fall but “ultimately it’s up to the governors.” He said that there are “great statistics” regarding young people and safety during the coronavirus pandemic. He mentioned that children "don't transmit very easily," and that his administration was studying whether kids transmitted the virus easily and would report back next week.

Soon after the briefing, White House coronavirus response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx appeared on Fox News and was asked whether what Trump said about kids was true. She noted that while one South Korean study suggested it was, more research was needed.
