Posted on 03/24/2020 10:51:45 AM PDT by EyesOfTX
Early Tuesday morning, President Trump continued to signal that it is his intention to re-open the U.S. economy and get Americans back to work sooner rather than later. Repeating yesterdays theme that the government cant afford to implement a draconian cure that is worse than the China Virus, the President issued the following tweet:
Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump Our people want to return to work. They will practice Social Distancing and all else, and Seniors will be watched over protectively & lovingly. We can do two things together. THE CURE CANNOT BE WORSE (by far) THAN THE PROBLEM! Congress MUST ACT NOW. We will come back strong!

Caleb Hull ✔ @CalebJHull HUGE NEWS: @realDonaldTrump says he wants the country back up and running again by Easter (April 12).
Trump: The Senate and the House, we seem to be getting a long as much as you can get along. We seem to be getting a long now on a bill. I think that maybe had even less than an impact than the fact that were opening up this incredible country. Because we have to do that.
Id love to have it all open by Easter [April 12]. I would love to have it open by Easter, I will tell you that right now. I would have that. Its such an important day for other reasons, but Ill make it an important day for this, too. I would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter.
For an investment community hungering to see a bottom reached in the stock market indexes, this is a crucial moment in time. There is no way the markets can find their bottom when they have no certainty or even any real idea about when business might resume and start getting the economy fully back on-line.
Markets were already soaring today on the prospect of the Democrats caving in and allowing the Senate stimulus measure to move through the process. The Presidents move to set a firm target date for beginning to get the economy moving again will only serve to support that positive sentiment among investors longing for some good news.
As usual, President Trumps sense of timing yesterday and today was impeccable. Be glad hes your President.
That is all.
The miracle when all was lost.
Well played Mr Trump.
My God April 12th is plenty. It will have been almost a month. That is long enough.
I really wish in this situation the president could override the states. because even Republican governors are just pressing the panic button and is no good for economy
By Easter — A TRUMPSURRECTION!!!
Well, I don’t think he means, “We’ll get back to work starting Easter,” I think he means “We’ll start next week and most of it will be back to near normal by Easter.” (I don’t mean the DOW will be back up to 29K, just that most people will be back to work.) That’s my take.
Leaning Into It.
Wonder if the governors are doing so because number of hospitals and hospital beds has been up to them? Maybe they are afraid of potential lynch mobs.
As usual, Pelosi, Schumer and their sorry ilk will do their best to sabotage it. The Dow is up 1600 point or so today. It will be down 600 points or so today tomorrow.
MSM will have a meltdown. Seems like everyone ignores there is no actual federal shutdown. It is not like Trump has a magic switch he is ready to throw. The country will re-open in regions. The problem l see is the Rat Governors are under orders to have their states shut down by the DNC. We could end up with an idiotic red state/ blue sate thing.
2nd post today for DB...humblegunner is watching you!
It is healthy fear which needs to be felt at the Pelosi and Schumer level.
Trump constantly referenced that were going back to work. I think he has realized that most likely hes been played on this. Let the dems and their media stooges do their worst.
Have you noticed how enticing DB’s headlines are? I don’t think I’ve missed a single one and I attribute that to his headlines.
Best election, best POTUS, evah!
I agree with your take. It will take a bit to restart things, so he means that we’ll be up and running and recovered by Easter.
should turbocharge the stock market ... it’s started upwards pretty good today, but i believe that the rate of increase will continue to go upwards ...
