President Donald Trump’s Moves To Reopen The Country Appear Increasingly Brazen | Deadline | MSNBC


ALSO WITH US ASSOCIATED PRESS WHITE HOUSE REPORTER JONATHAN LEMIER AND MARK LEIFISH.>>JONATHAN, ALL EYES ON THE PRESIDENT’S ANNOUNCEMENT NOT THAT HOUSES OF WORSHIP MAY OPEN BUT THE PRESIDENT HAVING A VERY SHARP TONE AND A VERY SHARP MESSAGE IN HIS ANNOUNCEMENT TODAY, REALLY BITING, SAYING LIQUOR STORES WERE OPEN BUT HOUSES OF WORSHIP WEREN’T ESSENTIAL. WILL IT HAPPEN?>>NICOLLE, CERTAINLY A LOT OF AMERICANS HAVE BEEN VERY ANXIOUS FOR THEIR HOUSES OF WORSHIP, NO MATTER WHAT THEIR FAITH, TO REOPEN. THE CDC AND THE WHITE HOUSE INDICATED TO REPORTERS THAT ANNOUNCEMENT WAS FORTHCOMING. ORIGINALLY HOWEVER IT WAS GOING TO BE PART OF THE PRESS SECRETARY’S BRIEFING TODAY SLATED FOR 2:00. ONLY A FEW MINUTES’ NOTICE, THE WHITE HOUSE BLASTED OUT TO REPORTERS THE PRESIDENT WOULD BE COMING TO THE BRIEFING ROOM TO MAKE THAT ANNOUNCEMENT. YOU SAW IT THERE. HE DIDN’T TAKE ANY QUESTIONS AND THE REASON BEHIND IT, BEHIND THE SCENES, NICOLLE, IT’S INDEED, AS MUCH AS IT’S ABOUT GETTING THE CHURCHES, IT’S THE POLITICS OF IT. HE WANTED TO BE THE FACE OF THIS ANNOUNCEMENT. HE BELIEVES THIS IS POPULAR WITH HIS BASE. LOT OF POLICY HE PUT FORTH IN OFFICE HAS BEEN WITH AN EYE TOWARD THE RELIGIOUS CONSERVATIVE. HE BELIEVES THEY NEED THEIR SUPPORT IN GREATER NUMBERS THIS TIME AROUND. THIS WASN’T GOING TO BE HE WOULD ALLOW THE PRESS SECRETARY OR THE MEMBERS OF TASK FORCE ANNOUNCE. HE WANTED TO DO IT HIMSELF. LOT OF THE DETAILS ARE STILL WORKING OUT. A SCRAMBLE HERE. THE PRESIDENT SAID, CHURCHES AND OTHER PLACES OF WORSHIP NEEDED TO BE OPEN THIS WEEKEND, HE WOULD IN HIS WORDS, OVERRULE OR OVERRIDE GOVERNORS. NOT EXACTLY SURE WHAT THAT MEANS. AS MUCH AS THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN THE CHEERLEADER FROM THE WHITE HOUSE FOR THE ECONOMY AND FOR THESE STATES TO REOPEN THE MOMENT TO MOMENT, DAY BY DAY, MECHANICAL DECISIONS, THOSE ARE BEING MADE BY THE STATES THEMSELVES AND THEIR GOVERNORS.>>DR. RIMOIN, I UNDERSTAND AGREE THAT FAITH IS ESSENTIAL, BUT HOUSES OF WORSHIP ARE NOT STRUCTURED YET IN A SAFE, SOCIALLY DISTANCE WAY. WHAT’S YOUR ADVICE TO CHURCHES ON SYNAGOGUES WHO HEED THE PRESIDENT’S ORDER?>>IT’S VERY IMPORTANT FOR EVERYONE TO THINK ABOUT SAFETY. WE ALL AGREE THAT THERE’S SO MUCH AT STAKE FOR PEOPLE HERE. IT’S AN EMOTIONAL DECISION, IT’S — IT’S A DECISION OF FAITH, DECISIONS THAT ARE RELATED TO HOW PEOPLE VIEW THEMSELVES IN THE CONTEXT OF THE WORLD BUT WE ALSO HAVE TO KEEP PEOPLE SAFE. AND WHAT WE KNOW IS THAT THE RISK OF CONTRACTING THE VIRUS IN PLACES WHERE YOU HAVE POOR VENTILATION, WHERE YOU HAVE CROWDING, WHERE YOU’RE IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH OTHER PEOPLE, WHERE YOU CAN’T SOCIAL DISTANCE THAT WE’RE AT RISK. AND SO I WOULD — MY ADVICE TO PEOPLE WOULD BE TO THINK ABOUT THE SCIENCE, TO THINK ABOUT PUBLIC HEALTH AND TO BALANCE THAT. WEAR A MASK, TO BE IN VENTILATED AREAS, TO MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING. THESE ARE THE KEYS TO KEEPING PEOPLE SAFE AND WHETHER OR NOT THINGS OPEN OR THEY CLOSE, IF WE OBEY THE LAWS OF SCIENCE AND PUBLIC HEALTH, THAT’S HOW WE KEEP PEOPLE SAFETY.>>DOCTOR, WHAT’S YOUR FEELING OF THIS REPORTING, FROM THE WASHINGTON POST AND “THE NEW YORK TIMES.” THAT DONALD TRUMP’S PUBLIC UTTERANCE ABOUT THE VIRUS ARE NOW TIED DIRECTLY TO A VERY, VERY TRANSPARENT STRATEGY OF HIS OWN RE-ELECTION, TO PUT HIMSELF ON THE SIDE OF BULLISH OPENINGS IN DEFIANCE OF HIS OWN CDC AND PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICIALS.>>YOU KNOW, I SPENT MY LIFE WORKING IN EPIDEMICS AND POLITICS AND EPIDEMICS AND IN THIS CASE A PANDEMIC, ARE, ARE INSEPARABLE AND UNFORTUNATELY THAT’S WHAT WE’RE SEEING ROLL OUT HERE. ANY PLACE THAT WE HAVE SEEN UNCERTAINTY IN TERMS OF MESSAGING, IN TERMS OF WHAT THE SCIENCE TELLS US, WE SEE POLITICS FILLING THOSE GAPS AND THE PROBLEM IS, THAT WE’RE DEALING WITH A KNOW VALUE VIRUS NEW TO HUMANITY AND WE’RE SEEING POLITICAL RHETORIC COME IN IN IN EVERY PLACE. WE CAN’T HAVE POLITICAL RHETORIC BE THE BASIS OF HOW WE MAKE PUBLIC HEALTH DECISIONS. WE CAN’T LET POLITICS INFECT PUBLIC HEALTH. AND THAT’S OUR BIG PROBLEM HERE.>>MARK, I JUST HEARD THE BEST POLITICAL ANALYSIS FROM A DOCTOR, I DON’T MEAN TO RAISE THE BAR FOR YOU TO NOW JUMP OVER, LET ME GIVE YOU SOME FOX NEWS POLLS TO WORK WITH — THIS IS NEW, WE JUST FOUND OUT IN WEEK SEVEN OF THE PANDEMIC, A BRAND-NEW DISEASE THAT’S VERY SCARY IN CHILDREN, WE STILL ARE LEARNING, AN UPDATE TODAY ABOUT SURFACES NOT PERHAPS BEING AS DANGEROUS — I MEAN, THERE’S A HEADLINE EVERY DAY WHAT THIS VIRUS IS AND ISN’T, I THINK IT AFFECTS THE POLL NUMBERS. THIS IS FROM FOX NEWS. MAJOR PROBLEMS IN DEALING WITH COVID-19. 63% THINK A LACK OF AVAILABLE TESTING IS A PROBLEM FOR DEALING WITH THE PANDEMIC. 61%, LACK OF A CLEAR FEDERAL 61%, LACK OF A CLEAR FEDERAL PLAN TO DEAL WITH COVID-19. THERE ARE STILL MORE PEOPLE WORRIED ABOUT A LACK OF THINGS THAT DONALD TRUMP IS SQUARELY IN CHARGE OF, TESTING SUPPLIES AND A FEDERAL PLAN AND REALLY A NUMBER SMALLER THAN A TRUMP BASE IS WORRIED ABOUT PERSONAL FREEDOM AND THAT’S 100% TRUE. WE TALK ABOUT THIS — PEOPLE TEND TO TALK ABOUT THIS AS A MESSAGING AND POLITICAL PHENOMENA. BUT AS WE’RE SEEING IN SOME OF THESE NUMBERS, PEOPLE ARE EXPERIENCING THIS AS AN INCERTAINTY IN THEIR DAY-TO-DAY LIVES. THERE’S GENUINE ANXIETY AROUND THIS VIRUS THAT’S AFFECTING NOT ONLY PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOST PEOPLE OR PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOST JOBS. THIS ISN’T A TRUMP-ERA STORY THAT PEOPLE ARE EXPERIENCING ON TV FOR THE MOST PART, LIKE THE UKRAINE SCANDAL AND IMPEACHMENT AND RUSSIA, THESE — DONALD TRUMP IS A TV STAR AND HE’S SEEMINGLY SPECIALLY OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS HE’S KIND OF TREATED THIS AS A MESSAGING AND A TV STORY BUT REALLY, THE CRUX OF THIS STORY AND THE EMOTIONAL IMPACT OF THIS STORY IS IN THE DAY-TO-DAY OF PEOPLE’S LIVES. YOU CAN’T CONTROL THAT FROM A POLITICAL STRATEGY.>>WE COVERED THE IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATION HEARINGS INTO THE PRESIDENT BECAUSE IT WAS ONLY THE THIRD TIME IN OUR COUNTRY’S HISTORY THAT HAS HAPPENED. A STORY THAT MOST PEOPLE ONLY RELATED TO TO THE DEGREE THEY SAW IT ON TV OR READ ABOUT IT OR LEARNED ABOUT IT. COVID IS SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE ARE LIVING. I GOT INTO THE CAR, I DIDN’T HAVE MY MASK. I WENT BACK UPSTAIRS TO GET IT. PEOPLE ARE LIVING IN THE FEAR OF THE PANDEMIC BUT ALSO THE RESPONSIBILITY OF BEING A GOOD PERSON. DONALD TRUMP HAS DEALT HIMSELF OUT OF THE PANDEMIC CONVERSATION A LITTLE BIT, HE WANTS TO BE DEALT IN THE ECONOMY CONVERSATION, DON’T YOU THINK MOST PEOPLE VIEW THEM AS COMPLETELY BRAIDED TOGETHER?>>I THINK THEY DO. AND IT’S UNCLEAR IF HE ACTUALLY WANTS TO BE AT THE FOREFRONT OF THE ECONOMY CONVERSATION RIGHT NOW, GIVEN WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH THE ECONOMY AND THERE ARE WEEKLY, YOU KNOW, JOB NUMBERS THAT ARE SCARY. I MEAN, IF YOU SORT OF LOOK AT IT, WHY HAS DONALD TRUMP BEEN A MAJOR — HE’S ALWAYS THE MAJOR POINT OF DISCUSSION BECAUSE HE’S THE PRESIDENT AND HE’S DONALD TRUMP THE QUESTION, DOES HE TAKE TRUMP THE QUESTION, DOES HE TAKE THIS ANTI-MALARIAAL DRUG, THESE ARE TRUMP-ERA ISSUES. THEY’RE INTERESTING BUT THESE ARE REAL-LIFE MATTERS FOR MOST PEOPLE. YEAH, IT SHOWS YOU THE PLAYBOOK THAT HE HAS RIDEN HIS CAMPAIGN

    ….and all the liberal sheep say….. bahahaha ……. tell me what I should think fake news …….. bahahaha ….

  • stable genius says:

    Another sixty to eighty thousand Americans will have to die to prove this POTUS is bad for the country.

    Shame.

  • It is not what trumps wants but what is right. In the long run everyone is responsible for their own lives by making the decisions . All deco have consequences

  • abdullah hussain says:

    There are two kinds of dictatorship SMART ONE and IGNORANT ONE, TRUMP is the last one.And if you re-electec him 2020, that would be the last Democratic ELECTION you would have.He is already half way to become a FULL DICTATOR.GOOD LUCK 🇺🇸.

  • Dylan Strauser says:

    I don't see what everyone's problem is. No one really saw how out of control this virus was and the United States has done its job which is flatten the curve. Y'all want to blame someone, blame the leaders of China who knew about this virus since the end of last year. Blame the WHO for not taking this thing more seriously at the beginning. But blaming one man for the mistakes of many is rather ludicrous.

  • By mid-June, number of deaths from COVID-19 in US > Number of US military deaths in WW1 (third highest US military deaths in history)

  • Michael Jeffries says:

    Bad Bad Donald Trump is indeed madder than a junkyard dog. His narcissism exceeded only by ignorance & lack of humanity.

  • Vic Alexander says:

    I voted for Donald Trump the first time, and I was disappointed because he was impeached before he had a chance to do very much; but then there came Coronavirus pandemic and the US economy shut down and now we have experienced the worth kind of poverty there is I think the answer is for the US to vote for President Trump again, because switching horses in the middle of the river will hurt the US policy vis-a-vis the rest of the world — I'm voting Republican as always. Win one for the Gipper, President Trump — Vic Alexander

  • Diane Davidson says:

    So while the maga Trump followers, instead of carry weapons into State Houses go to the White House and get together and pray. There you go work on that rapture with the dear leader. Problem solved prayers and lies straight from the White House. I'm surprised the White Evangelicals haven't opened their doors. Talk to the leaders of those Churches and keep the rest of us out of your bs.

  • joesho525 ShoWarrior says:

    trump is nothing but a misguided leader who only believes in what he thinks is right. The ppl who listen are those who seek to follow which only in their minds to decide is good. It only shows us that ppl want to believe in something they can only see or hear that gives them proof. God is real thru true belief and subconsciously knowing he is always there. God help us to show the ppl in him that we are true saved and protected by a higher power. Trump is only using God to his benefit to follow his words and no one else's.

  • Muslims can pray anywhere, at home, on the field, sidewalk, in the desert any where. Praying in the mosque is not as important as the prayer itself… Come on do not politics religion….

  • If I may say, and its totally off topic, but seeing all our favorite presenters and contributors without a lot of work on their makeup and general presentation, is in a way refreshing. Just people doing their jobs day to day without the gloss.

    And as far as the 'Evangelical Right' goes, if you are voting for a person like Trump to be your representative then you are not anywhere close to Christianity except for the people he branded 'Hypocrite'.

  • Fatimah Abdul Basir says:

    As a Christian i feel trump is the new HEROD. He pretends to be sympathetic to us but he really wants to ELIMINATE all opposition. HE IS NOT GOD CONSCIOUS. He cares NOTHING for real FAITH
    Although i love and miss my church i understand the closures. I DONT NEED A BUILDING TO WORSHIP GOD!! Unlike trump, MY Pastor CARES about my welfare.!!!!!

  • Christa Delancy says:

    Trump is actually one of the best presidents, like or it or not all presidents lie. And presidents dont make laws, bills, ect. Blame what yall dont like on the house.

  • TheFoxandTheRabbit says:

    Well, should we wait three years? It's gonna happen one way or another, people need people and a shutdown regard less weakens our country for China to move in.

  • Why he is reopening the houses of worship??is he trying to infect all his citizen wid covid19..people can worship in their home..its not a big deal

  • Desmond Richmond says:

    If you want to get Corona Virus, GO AHEAD AND GO TO CHURCH, MOSQUE AND SYNAGOGUE!
    You can PRAY TO GOD in your OWN HOME WITH YOUR FAMILY! The first DEFENCE against the Virus is your OWN FRONT DOOR! Unless you want to DIE, LISTEN to Donald Trump!!

  • Keith Perdue says:

    Another week or two & we'll start seeing the consequences of this "economy saving" relaxing of CDC recommendations. Now that we have politicians making public health decisions will we be consulting the medical community when municipal budget decisions are being made?

  • Trump is the worst President in American history to date. Will he hold a memorial for the 100,000 Americans who will or have died under his Presidency? Probably not.

  • Clinton Lujan says:

    Dotard Donnie is pandering to his Evangelical base to reopen Churches because he desperate due to sinking in the polls

  • music man 1970 says:

    The virus is real as for god well that’s a fictional character as no one knows what it looks like or were it is

  • suicide alone says:

    i met angel of death in coffe shop, they carried a book. I ask what the tittle of those book. They said the art of deal by baboon tramp. I asked, whoaa, how many chapter in that book. They said ELEVEN

  • To think dumb Christian's voted for this man lol how do you feel now "christians". I doubt any real believer would vote for such a man.

  • Robin Durfey says:

    The bible states where 2 or 3 are gathered in my name…there am I. You do not have to gather in huge groups to pray. The Bible also teaches the go into a private place alone to pray. Please people don't do this….it's murder and if you make someone else sick….just because your a brat….God will hold you accountable for those deaths. Get your heads on right. It boggles my mind how you can call yourself a christain and support these people trump included when their lives show just how far from God they are. Shame on you….I will pray for your souls.

  • Richie Tattersall says:

    HVAC systems in buildings are specifically DESIGNED to circulate THE SAME AIR to save on heating and air conditioning costs. Anyone that actually thinks that "6ft" is going to make a difference, doesn't have a clue how they actually work.

  • Ezekiel Adeh says:

    Church prayers have save millions of people from covid 19 deaths, again is Americans will never appreciate God's grace and mercy.

    Evil and ungrateful generations.

  • I think Trump watched House of cards and thought to himself "I can be more corrupt than Kevin Spacey. I'll show him how it's really done."

  • Baxter Baxter says:

    First of all The Pastors should care also for their people and if pastors open up that means they don't care too. They just want money from the people . Sad….
    Pastor's need to care too, Worship God in private is More important then having people dying because they want to gather and make money.
    That's why God said in the Bible He's coming for All Religion First and then the rest of the people in The World.
    They Should know that.
    God Bless Everyone, God Bless AMERICA

  • edward mille says:

    My friends in the Southern Evangelical movement who believe that Trump was the chosen one. You and Trump are protected by the blood of Jesus that the virus cannot penetrate so fill your churches tomorrow God bless you Donald Trump an America

  • Subrata Datta says:

    media should show some videos of icu or micu so people can make their on decision, while doctor discous. they can see what covid petint has to go through.

  • Joshua Garcia says:

    If you don’t wanna go to church don’t go to church, a lotta you people act like he’s trying to infect you, he’s not, some people just wanna go to church

  • President has spoken, many things are open just having to introduce new ways of being safe and taking care of each other. They have to introduce special detectors on every entrance pretty much like airports but just for health related dectections on Corona!!

  • Watch jim jones documentary called very scary people and see if you can see parallel personality disorder the same as Trump presents..now I know why the drink the koolaid phrase is used so much..freaking scary….

  • Crystal Sterling says:

    Hopefully the numbers won’t go up! Because President imbecile chose to open the states JUST BEFORE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!! WHY Couldn’t he wait a few days until after a holiday that is known for people to travel!!???
    I believe he wants the death toll to rise!! What intelligent reason would he have?🤔
    I have tons of tourist in my little town this morning!!😡
    🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  • I think your President is right. Much as I dislike his trade war, he is right to end lock down. What is the point of living if you lost so much because of lock down ? Might as well let the covid take you.. At least there's 80% chance you'd have immunity covid anti bodies.

  • It appears that many Evangelical's are willing to get sick and/or die for Donald Trump in an attempt to prove him right! How are the rest of us suppose to rationalize with people that think like this? Answer, you can't. The rest of us must adhere to the CDC Guidelines, you know, the recommendation's that Trump hasn't fudged-up.

  • Tim Mannering says:

    Why should churches even tempt to open up to a possibility of speading the Virus, people can and has the freedom to worship and prayers in their own homes, God is there also He is just not only in the churches we can all still agree with that !

  • there are more recovered than dead, and sooner or later we all have to leave our houses or are we going to lock ourselves up for a whole year? :/

  • Our government has zero to offer the American people. Their only function they can manage, is taking.
    It's our fault. We created them piece by piece.

  • Sharon Mores says:

    There are many that worship in prayer in their homes every day. Only someone like trump would think you have to go and make a SHOW of it. Those that know their God know Him no matter where they are! Be Blessed!

  • jewell charles says:

    wait a minute, was not the word GOD removed fro all government lawn plaques, anything on their walls? THIS IS NOT A MATTER FOR GOVERNMENT TO DECIDE PERIOD.trump is a person not to be listened to about anything, he is a hypocrite on more things than can be counted.as for me and mine,we will worship our God from our home,our lawn,anywhere we are.God is everywhere,he said,I gave your a mind to use,to learn to grow.not to be a sheep led by a false prophet,not a self-appointed God.

  • Malcolm Davis says:

    Trump’s promotion of unproven drugs is cause for alarm, but not because he’s making money off it

    Trump indirectly owns a minute stake in a company that makes hydroxychloroquine. But that doesn’t seem to be why he’s been promoting it.

  • And to this comment I would say to Trump … "You first". Go on and go into a mass crowd, no one is stopping you.

  • Judy Kinsman says:

    Hey you idiots, go for it. Be the reason more health workers die trying to save you when you get sick. You are not followers of Jesus’ teachings of caring for others. F’in sick, all of you!

  • Lackluster leadership definitely leads to a break down in communication. And without communication our NATION is in a free fall of government failure. And in this case 'failure on saving American lives'. The illumination that was ONCE conducive with the mention of America is now diminishing by the day! So who still needs VERIFICATION on the worth of this KKKON ? History is the proof … putin is the beneficiary. NEVER forget HELSINKI … what a TRAITOR! Vote ALL these JERKS out of office … AMERICA still matters to MANY!!! 2020 BIDEN x 8

  • Just another hit piece from the POS MSNBC network. It will be a great day when this network shutters its doors and closes for good.

    Things Trumplethinskin does not think about. Thou shall have no other gods before me.

    You shall not make idols.("Trumplethinskin I am the chosen one") You shall not commit adultery. ( Trumplethinskin, five times that we know of.) You shall not steal. ( Trumplethinskin every chance he gets to steal a deal.) Thou shalt not lying or bear false witness, (Trumplethinskin more than 18,000 times in four years.) Thou shalt not covet.

    (Trumplethinskin every time he opens his eyes and looks out in the world.)

  • He doesn’t understand liquor stores being essential because he is not an alcoholic. You can pray anywhere however. You don’t have to be in a church. He only wants those open so he can have his rallies, if they can gather there then they can gather at rallies? He’s very transparent.

  • Its says in the bible not to pray in front of others. So in typical christian fashion, they pack into mega churches to show everyone how religious they are. ‘Look at me look at me”. Religion is making humans soooo stupid. The churches just want your cash donations that they get to keep tax free. They are showing you they dont care about you. Just give them money . The pastors live in mega mansions and pay for private jets. Scam scam scam.

  • Trump needs to have a big. Packed hate rally and invite all of his white supremacists supporters with no masks.

  • Anthony Borghese says:

    It would be ok if these church goers would quarantine themselves but they won't instead spreading their filth to real Americans.

  • Time to open America enough is enough. 1.25 million people die of car accidents every dam year. Put all Americans back to work open up all churches now.

  • Kellie Mandarino says:

    He's trying to keep the evangelical vote obviously he wants you to talk about it so they get the sound bite
