ABC News reports:
President Trump, who has pressed for schools to open this fall despite the coronavirus pandemic, said Thursday that he couldn’t offer assurances that holding in-person classes would be safe.
“Can you assure anybody of anything?” Trump said in response to a question about how he could assure people that schools can safely be reopened. At the same time, Trump falsely claimed that young people are “almost immune” to the virus.
“I do say again, young people are almost immune to this disease. The younger the better,” he said during a White House briefing with reporters.
