Trump Tells Governors to Open Schools With Only Weeks Left, Contradicts White House Guidelines

President Donald Trump told some governors that they should “seriously consider” reopening schools, and claimed that young children “have done very well” with the deadly coronavirus, notes ABC News:

SCHOOLS AND ORGANIZED YOUTH ACTIVITIES (e.g., daycare, camp) that are currently closed should remain closed.
