Graham Bucks Trump On Ending Business Shutdowns

Axios reports:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) tweeted Monday that he is basing his decisions for coronavirus policy on information from “health care professionals like Dr. Fauci and others, not political punditry.”

In an apparent public rebuke, Graham added a link to a Washington Post article about the Trump administration’s signals that it might move to loosen restrictions on businesses at the end of the White House’s 15-day social distancing period as an economic salve, as reported by Axios’ Jonathan Swan.

Larry Kudlow, Trump’s top economic adviser, said on Fox News Monday: “We can’t shut down the economy. The economic cost to individuals is just too great. … The president is right. The cure can’t be worse than the disease. And we’re going to have to make some difficult trade-offs. Let’s give it another week.”
