President Trump says he'll soon reveal details and guidelines for reopening the country but appeared to acknowledge that individual state governors will ultimately determine when to reverse stay-at-home orders.
Only a day earlier, Trump insisted he had absolute authority to determine when states would be able to reopen their economies.
But his message Tuesday was different. He said governors would determine their own plans. And while he said he was authorizing them to do it, there wasn't any evidence they would require such sign-off.
Trump said he would be "authorizing each individual governor of each individual state to implement a reopening and a very powerful reopening plan of their state."
He said he would soon speak to all 50 governors about the plans, and indicated some states without major outbreaks could potentially open before May 1.
He said his administration would work to hold governors accountable for the plans.
But he said they'd be working closely with the states.
