CORONAVIRUS/EDUCATION: [Adam Sexton: “In New Hampshire, Mr. President, you have a lot of parents who are anxious about sending their kids back to school in this pandemic. Certainly you as the father of a school age young man could sympathize. Are their fears legitimate?”]
“Well, New Hampshire, number one is doing very, very well in terms of the, as I call it, the China virus. You have a great governor. He’s doing an incredible job. Your numbers are very, very low and young children just don’t have very much of a problem. I mean, it’s a tiny percentage of 1%. and you have to open up your state.
You have to open up your country and that’s what we’re doing and we’re doing it to record numbers. So, no, I think you absolutely have to open up your schools, have football and all of those things.”
