US President Trump slammed school districts that are hesitant to reopen for in-person classes in the fall over concerns about the coronavirus pandemic, telling CBS News that the districts were making a "terrible decision."
“What do you tell parents and teachers who feel that it is unsafe to go back?”
"I would tell parents and teachers that you should find yourself a new person whoever is in charge of that decision, because it's a terrible decision."
“Because children and parents are dying from that trauma, too. They're dying because they can't do what they're doing. Mothers can't go to work because all of a sudden they have to stay home and watch their child, and fathers,” the president said.
The president said that being unable to send children to school puts a "tremendous strain" on parents, and called the issue a "balancing act."
"We have to open our schools," Mr. Trump said. The president has repeatedly pushed for reopening schools and universities in the fall, even as coronavirus cases climb in dozens of states.
， “特朗普想要学校复课，这事可由不得他 (He wants the school reopened, it’s not up to him.)”
'In Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and many other countries, SCHOOLS ARE OPEN WITH NO PROBLEMS. The Dems think it would be bad for them politically if U.S. schools open before the November Election, but is important for the children & families. May cut off funding if not open!' the president threatened.
The only problem is that the president can't pull back funding that Congress has already approved.
