Donald Trump made a stunning announcement on social media last Sunday night that he won't make a decision "as to which way to go" until after the end of the "15 day period."
The all caps tweet understandably confused a lot of people since no one knows what the "15 day period" is. Was it another announcement he forgot to make?
Donald Trump tweeted:
WE CANNOT LET THE CURE BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM ITSELF. AT THE END OF THE 15 DAY PERIOD, WE WILL MAKE A DECISION AS TO WHICH WAY WE WANT TO GO!

This message seemed to resonate with his fans though, as to them it suggested that he might roll back all restrictions in place around the country to "stimulate the economy." They see the "cure" of stopping COVID-19 coronavirus as worse than the virus itself.
Looks like Donald Trump has been watching some late night COVID-19 coronavirus deniers on FOX News again. This was exactly the sentiment FOX TV personality Steven Hilton made on Sunday night.
Does Donald Trump have dementia? He doesn't seem to understand how a pandemic works. Many cities and states are now on lockdown because we want to save American lives. The economy is something else altogether. Also, why the flip flop now when he was the one who ordered all flights from Europe canceled that literally sent the stock market out of control in the first place?
Donald Trump should wait until April when the COVID-19 coronavirus inevitably reaches GOP enclaves in the middle of the country. Let's see what kind of sentiments these FOX News "experts" will have then.
Donald Trump is truly unqualified to lead the country during this COVID-19 pandemic. If he is taking the advice of a random late-late night FOX News host over the CDC or the FDA, then we are all in danger.
Well, apparently, it's worse. It looks like Donald Trump took his "15 day period" advice from a random Trollbot on Twitter. This is a cheap plot of a C-rated horror movie. Except it's real life.

The president is signaling that after 15 days he wants to “isolate the high-risk groups” and tell everyone else to go back to work — based on a recommendation from a Twitter rando and in direct contravention to public health experts. pic.twitter.com/v68EQ8EYd4— Kyle Cheney (@kyledcheney) March 23, 2020
