TRUMP PUSHES FOR SCHOOLS TO REOPEN AS COVID-19 CASES SPIKE: Pres. Trump meets with education leaders to discuss reopening schools amid the coronavirus pandemic. Despite large spikes of new cases across the country, Trump is demanding schools reopen for the upcoming school year. White House officials are using CDC issued reopening guidelines as justification for getting schools opened for in-person classes in the fall, with one White House official telling the press this morning that the CDC ‘never recommended’ that schools close during the pandemic, suggesting that instead the closures came from ‘local jurisdictional decisions that were made.’ The same official went on to say that they didn’t believe closing schools ‘was really an effective public health strategy that needed to be operationalized.’ This comes as ICE announced yesterday that international students whose colleges and universities are moving to online learning in the fall will not be allowed to stay in the country under their current visas, as Pres. Trump continues to use the global pandemic to curve immigration policies.
