The President of the United States, Donald Trump, publicly rejected the recommendations of the Centers for Control and Prevention of Diseases (CDC) on reopening the education centers of the North American country under the pandemic of the coronavirus on Wednesday, saying that they were “difficult and difficult.” are expensive “.
“I disagree with the CDC on its very difficult and expensive recommendations to open schools,” Trump said on his Twitter account. “While they want them to open up, they ask schools to do very impractical things,” he added, making sure that he would meet with them.
The President’s message came minutes after he made another “tweet” threatening to cut federal funding for schools that are not physically open. “Democrats think it would be politically bad for them to open America’s schools before the November elections, but it is important for children and families,” he wrote, an idea he has had in the past.
It is not the first time that Trump has shown a preference for the reopening of educational centers. This Tuesday, despite the increase in US-registered cases of COVID-19, the American president assured that he would “pressurize” governors to open them in the fall. Already one day before, he had ensured via Twitter that “schools should open in autumn”.
