I 'may cut off funding if not open!' Trump said of the prospect of schools not opening

President Donald Trump threatened to “cut off” school funding if stated do not reopen them in the fall following the coronavirus pandemic.

“In Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and many other countries, SCHOOLS ARE OPEN WITH NO PROBLEMS,” Trump said.

“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,” he continued.

“May cut off funding if not open!”

Trump also slammed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) for their “very tough & expensive guidelines for opening schools.”

“While they want them open, they are asking schools to do very impractical things,” he said.

“I will be meeting with them!!!”

Trump had a similar tone on Monday.

“Corrupt Joe Biden and the Democrats don’t want to open schools in the Fall for political reasons, not for health reasons! They think it will help them in November,” he said.

“Wrong, the people get it!”

Betsy DeVos, the Secretary of Education, said her department was “seriously considering” action to withhold funds if schools failed to reopen in the Fall.

“The importance of in-person learning is well-documented, and there is already evidence of the negative impacts on children because of school closures in the spring of 2020,” the AAP said in its pitch for an in-person 2020-2021 academic year.

It argued the virus behaves “differently in children and adolescents than other common respiratory viruses, such as influenza, on which much of the current guidance regarding school closures is based.”

Although children and adolescents play a major role in amplifying influenza outbreaks, to date, this does not appear to be the case with SARS-CoV-2.

Although many questions remain, the preponderance of evidence indicates that children and adolescents are less likely to be symptomatic and less likely to have severe disease resulting from SARS-CoV-2 infection.

In addition, children may be less likely to become infected and to spread infection.

Policies to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 within schools must be balanced with the known harms to children, adolescents, families, and the community by keeping children at home.

A senior administration official said:

“The CDC never recommended school closures because they didn’t believe that was an effective strategy."

According to Fox News, the official said the administration’s goal is to “to work hand-in-hand with local jurisdictions to make sure to see the best ways to reopen schools in a safe way, and get back to where we would have really preferred to have been in spring, which is to have an active educational component available to the students."
