Trump is frustrated and "chomping at the bit" to reopen the economy

President Donald Trump went into the weekend frustrated after a week of calls with industry leaders, governors and lawmakers who raised questions on whether the country was ready to be reopened, specifically whether or not there was adequate testing to reopen the economy and send people back to work, a senior administration official told CNN.

The President lamented over negative media coverage of the White House reopening guidance unveiled on Thursday and that he didn’t understand why the narrative wasn’t more positive…

Adding to the President’s frustration, White House medical experts have told him that the country is on track to be prepared for a phased reopening, but those experts and Trump are not in sync on the timing of the relaxation, including whether his May 1 target date for opening certain parts of the country can be met.
