Mnuchin, Schumer say stimulus close, Trump attacks Pelosi

Trump said Tuesday that he would like to have the government restrictions on travel and social gatherings eased by Easter, which comes on Sunday, April 12.

“We’re going to be opening relatively soon,” Trump said during a Fox News town hall Tuesday. “I’d love to have it open by Easter … It’s such an important day for other reasons but I’ll make an important date for this too. I would love to have the country, opened up and just raring to go by Easter.” 

Asked if it’s possible for the country to return to normal by Easter, Trump said, “I think it’s absolutely possible. Now, people are going to have to practice all of the social distancing and things we’re doing now. … But we have to get our country back to work.”

Trump seemed to suggest Americans could both go to work and adhere to social distancing practices but did not specify how that would work.
