Trump drive to open economy meets failure

Here's the headline from Common Dreams: "Trump’s effort to enlist private companies to reopen economy derided as an utter failure."

CEOs give Trump heave-ho on opening economy

Yes, the CEOs that run America's corporations are much smarter than the Oval Office lunatic and, despite the fact that they are all extremely profit-minded, they realize the dangers of putting their employees back to work. This would indicate to the triple-digit IQs, and even the double-digit Trump supporters that this idiot is only interested in one thing by forcing the economy to open too soon, it is his desperation to win the November election. Here's the scenario...
"An attempt by President Donald Trump to enlist the assistance of private business leaders in his efforts to reopen the U.S. economy by early May was panned as a failure by participants and observers alike as the White House response to the coronavirus pandemic appears set to make an economic crash worse."
Here's what one CEO who commented anonymously for fear of White House reprisals told Politico...
“He’s got to stop talking about turning the economy back on and start talking about making people feel safe, things that are happening around testing, and the health care system. That’s the only way you will really get the economy reopened over a period of time.”
CEOs are most concerned about COVID-19 testing, which has been a complete failure by Donald Trump, promising, but never delivering. He has boasted about the 3-million done, when the healthcare industry has said we need millions per week, of not by the day. Trump had the gall to open the call with the comment, "testing is under control," which must have sent many of the corporate heads into silent convulsions.

Yet new guidelines from Trump to open economy...

But the same advisers who apparently talked the White House maniac out of officially appointing his daughter, Ivanka, and her husband Jared Kushner to head up the advice team to reopen the economy, talked him into the call to corporations with the following results...
"Those people have apparently told him it would be absurd to get back to regular life before the government has hugely increased testing capabilities."

The dumbest duo
 Donald Trump is still clueless after having been alerted on January 18, by Alex Azar, Secretary of Health and Human Services, who warned him then of the coronavirus threat. That's three months and still Trump does not have a workable COVID-19 testing plan to save more American lives. But it does seem that some employers would be amenable to sending employees back to work if they are immune from litigation. Some fake concern there, perhaps?

Politico's Ben White reported the typical Donald Trump mishandling of things in setting up the corporate executive calls...
“The whole thing was a bit of a disaster, the way they announced this on Tuesday,” White explained on MSNBC, “read a lot of corporate CEO names that had no idea they were a part of this effort to reopen the economy, didn’t give anybody really time to plan to be on these calls. Among the Wall Street executives, a lot of them had earnings yesterday and couldn’t be on the call. One JP Morgan executive tried for 20 minutes to get in and couldn’t.”
 White reiterated corporate execs response to Trump's demands that they help him get the economy rolling,..
“But we cannot do that, our employees will not feel safe until the testing regime is much more widespread, until people don’t feel like they’re going out to be guinea pigs to get the virus..."
But here is the headline to end all headlines: "Trump supporters fear Bill Gates wants to make a COVID-19 vaccine to secretly implant them with brain chips." Based on this statement, you have to assume that many of the double-digit Trump supporters are really in the single-digit category. And this is why we have another moron in the White House.
