President Trump said the White House will announce tomorrow the creation of a committee — or multiple committees — focused on reopening the country in the weeks ahead.
“We’ve also as you’ve probably heard, developed a committee. We’re actually calling it a number of committees with the most prominent people in the country, the most successful people in the various fields, and we’ll be announcing them tomorrow,” Trump said at the coronavirus task force briefing.
The President said his team is debating the blueprint for opening parts of the country, something he said he expects to happen “quickly.”
“We will soon finalize new and very important guidelines to give governors the information they need to start safely opening their states,” Trump said. “My administration’s plan and corresponding guidelines will give the American people the confidence they need to begin returning to normal life.”
CNN has reported that White House chief of staff Mark Meadows is expected to chair the economic working group and that Ivanka Trump is expected to play a role in it as well.
