The Hill reports:
Stephen Moore, a member of the White House coronavirus economic task force, said he thinks the “worst economic news” has passed and urged Democratic governors and mayors to expedite the reopening of their respective states and cities amid the pandemic.
“The problem is we still have New York. And we have California. And we have Michigan and Pennsylvania. The Los Angeles mayor is saying that they’re going to keep the Los Angeles economy shut down for three more months,” Moore said.
“That’s lunatic to think that Los Angeles could ever come back from that. You do have some of these blue state mayors and blue state governors who are continuing with the lockdown,” he said Sunday on John Catsimatidis’s radio show.
