US President Donald Trump threatens to withhold public funds for schools if they do not reopen this fall.
On Twitter, he points out that countries like Norway, Denmark and Germany have reopened schools “without problems”. Trump claims Democrats will keep schools closed for political reasons until the November presidential election.
Trump is also pushing hard against the guidelines of the United States National Infection Protection Center (CDC), which he believes are costly and complicated. CDC Director Robert Redfield agrees that schools should reopen.
“Nothing would make me sadder than seeing school districts use our guidelines as a reason not to open again,” he says.
