Trump Warns Coronavirus Shutdown Could 'Destroy a Country'

"We can't lose a Boeing, we can't lose some of these companies", he said on the Fox News broadcast from the White House.

It was not clear what Trump had in mind, but legal experts said a USA president's powers to order people back to work or reopen government buildings, transportation or businesses is limited.

US President Donald Trump, with Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Anthony Fauci, takes questions during the daily briefing on the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, at the White House on March 24, 2020, in Washington, DC.

The president on Tuesday repeatedly invoked the common influenza to justify his thinking, arguing the country is not "turned off" because of the thousands of deaths from that disease.

President Trump, whose approval rating touched 50 per cent for the first time apparently because of his handling the coronavirus crisis on a war footing, put up a fearless front on Tuesday telling reporters that he expects things to go back to normal in about three weeks' time by Easter, which is on April 12.

"We are now seeing a very large acceleration in cases in the US". You're going to lose people.

The president, known for his love of media spectacle, said he picked Easter because "I just thought it was a lovely time, a attractive timeline, it's a great day", adding: "It was based on a certain level of weeks from the time we started".

With the virus having claimed some 700 lives in the United States, and some hospitals becoming dangerously close to reaching capacity, the president has become increasingly at odds with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who is managing the state with the largest caseload thus far and has sharply criticized the federal government for its response.

Cuomo said there is room for a more refined public health strategy that is also a good economic strategy. "No American is going to say, 'accelerate the economy at the cost of human life.' Because no American is going to say how much a life is worth".

"Don't make us choose between a smart health strategy and a smart economic strategy. We don't want any cars anymore, '" he said. It's a period of time that is longer than the original two weeks.

Trump on ending social distancing: "I would love to have it opened by Easter".

The shuttered economy is particularly disastrous for low-income, working-class people who cannot work from home and often do not have paid sick days so can't afford to stay home.

Economic damage on this scale would greatly hurt Trump's campaign for a second term as president, as election-year economy largely determines an incumbent's reelection chances. "Our people want to go back to work".

Even with eased restrictions, the pandemic would continue to roil our daily economy. And some experts have suggested that the economy won't be able to truly recover until the country resolves the worst of the public health threat. Many Americans would remain afraid of the virulent virus, and those with financial means would likely continue to self-isolate.

Birx said about 56% of all the cases of coronavirus in the United State are in New York City's metropolitan area.

Richard Wolff, a professor of economics emeritus at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and founder of the organization Democracy at Work, whose latest book is "Understanding Socialism", joined Radio Sputnik's Loud and Clear on Tuesday to discuss the U.S. president's recent shift in messaging and related promises to get workers out of their homes and back into the workforce to rescue the economy. "Well, in case there's any doubt in your minds, I'm not willing to sacrifice anyone", Pritzker said.
