(PresidentialWire.Com)- President Donald Trump recently reluctantly abandoned plans to open the U.S. economy by Easter weekend, but that hasn’t stopped him looking for innovative ways to keep the economy moving while the coronavirus continues to sweep across the country.
During an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News on Tuesday, Trump laid out two possible ways of reopening the economy while reducing the spread of the disease. He also discussed the possible use of antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine which has seen positive results when used across Europe.
As you can see in the video above, President Trump made it very clear that he intends to bring the economy back with a “big bang.”
When Hannity asked him if there was a possibility of using antibody testing and geographic reopening of the economy, Trump outlined his two visions for getting businesses open and people back to work.
“We’re starting to look at it very, very thoroughly, we have some great people looking at it because we want to get this country open,” he said. “We have to get out country open again. This country wasn’t designed to have this, you crack it, you crack it in half. It’s no good.”
The president then assured Hannity that he will open the economy again “much sooner rather than later.”
Trump then went into more detail about two ways of doing that. One, he said, is where you open up sections of the US economy depending on the spread of the virus. Trump also said that there was a possibility of opening the entire national economy. However, he also acknowledges that in places like New York, which has taken the brunt of the disease so far, could take much longer to return to normal.
You can see why the president is so concerned about getting the economy reopened, too. In just two weeks almost 10 million Americans have filed for unemployment benefits after losing their jobs. Businesses are closing possibly for good, and the longer this goes on the longer it could take the United States to recover.
Once we OPEN UP OUR GREAT COUNTRY, and it will be sooner rather than later, the horror of the Invisible Enemy, except for those that sadly lost a family member or friend, must be quickly forgotten. Our Economy will BOOM, perhaps like never before!!!

The positive energy from the president and the commitment to come up with new ways to get the economy moving must, therefore, be good news to
