Mnuchin: Trump Could Reopen Country In May [VIDEO]

Business Insider reports:

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday that the US economy could reopen in May if President Donald Trump decides the public health crisis is under control. When CNBC’s Jim Cramer asked Mnuchin if “we could be open for business in the month of May,” the secretary responded, “I do.”

“As soon as the president feels comfortable with the medical issues, we are making everything necessary that American companies and American workers can be open for business,” Mnuchin said during the interview on Thursday morning.

“Obviously we’d like to open up as much GDP as we can,” Mnuchin said, but added, “my expectations are that places like New York are going to take a little bit longer.”
