CNN reports that President Donald Trump canceled the portion of the Republican National Convention to be held in Jacksonville, Florida, because COVID-19 cases have been surging and many Republicans refused to go
Trump told reporters in a White House briefing room about his sudden change in plans: “We won’t do a big, crowded convention, per se — it’s not the right time for that,” notes the New York Times.
Trump threatened on July 8 to cut the funding of schools if they did not reopen.
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 8, 2020
CNN reporter Daniel Dale tweeted on July 23 that Trump may allow some delayed openings, but may give public school money to private religious schools.
Trump: If public schools don’t reopen, the funding should “follow the student” and allow them to go to private, charter, religious, etc. schools of their choice.— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) July 23, 2020
