In the past few weeks, there has been a lot of hot debate about how schools should open in the fall or even if they should at all. President Trump, VP Mike Pence, and White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany have said similar things about how schools must reopen.
In a White House press briefing, a reporter asked Kayleigh McEnany what the President thinks about reopening schools. The reporter mentioned that the White House doesn’t want a “one-size-fits-all” decision about how the schools should reopen asked why the administration has that same policy when it comes to actually opening them. McEnany responded, “Because there is a way to safely do it and there is a lot at stake. I mentioned that 67,000 pediatricians represented by the American Academy of Pediatrics say it’s imperative schools reopen.” She then said that that same sentiment is echoed by 1500 pediatricians from the United Kingdom.
Kayleigh mentioned that when kids are not in school, lots of times the abuse of children goes unnoticed and that would be too high a cost not to reopen in the fall.
“The costs are too high to keep schools shutdown. They can safely reopen. The American Academy of Pediatrics believes that. And the President is going to stand on the side of the child. Always.”Kayleigh McEnany
Today, the number one trend on Twitter are #notmychild and #notmykid in response to the President wanting and encouraging schools to open in the fall. Parents are tweeting their outrage at the President and saying things like “better start preparing for your kids’ funeral” or that they won’t risk their kids’ lives for Trump, and even “how about we put Barron in public school and see what happens”. Except, corona virus has absolutely nothing to do with why Barron Trump cannot go to a public school.
