The announcement was made via Twitter from President Donald Trump’s account, amid criticism by the Democrats for their political interests in the matter. 

Most schools in the United States are still closed due to the CCP Virus pandemic. The Trump administration stated at a White House meeting on Tuesday, July 7, it intends to reopen schools when the fall season begins. It is now reaffirming its position, warning with a cut in subsidies if they do not start.

In a new tweet President Trump said, “In Germany, Denmark, Norway,  Sweden and many other countries, SCHOOLS ARE OPEN WITH NO PROBLEMS. 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. May cut off funding if not open!” wrote President Trump.

In the statement, he said that in several countries such as Germany, Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, schools are open and no problems related to the reopening of schools are being detected. Even the Dutch Health Ministry’s research institute reported this week that children play a minor role in the spread of the CCP Virus. 

The dispute with the Democrats over the opening of the schools has been going on for several days. President Trump himself is targeting them in his Twitter message by suggesting that it would be detrimental to the Democrats to open schools before the November elections, and that is why they are putting up barriers. 

In another tweet on Monday he was very strong with his Democratic opponent Joe Biden, when he accused him and his entourage of being corrupt, for not wanting to open schools in the fall for political reasons and not for health reasons as they usually argue.

As reported by many media outlets, at Tuesday’s meeting, President Trump announced that he will put pressure on governors and state leaders who are politicizing the decision to reopen schools.

President Trump, being firm and consistent in his stance, also criticized the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for its “very tough & expensive guidelines for opening schools.”
