TODD HERMAN: The president yesterday signaled something that the media — and it is just utterly filthy what the media is attempting to do with this president in this time. This is from CNN: ‘Reopen America or Save Americans, Trump Seems To Have Decided.’
Do you see what they are doing there? They are putting the president in a box that you can go completely towards an entire shutdown of the country or you can be a savage. The president signaled something incredibly important and I think it could end up making President Trump even more historic.
Leaders, in circumstances like we face today, they must make the hardest decisions. Every leader who has ever had to put troops into war has had to make a fundamentally heartbreaking decision. Men and women will die because we will defend this nation. Donald Trump doesn’t want this to happen. The president doesn’t want lives lost. We can see this in his actions. We can see this in his policies.
But we learned something about President Trump as he learned to transmit that we cannot let this economy die.
