I don’t know why it is shocking. Trump says a lot of things. UK considered the same thing,
There are a lot of legitimate things to hammer about Trump, but being open to ideas is not one, One thing that people should like about him is he is open to a lot of ideas. Sounds like he thought about that idea and decided against. Like the NY lockdown. According to Fauci and others he does that. He is certainly guilty of being overly transparent.
LOL, Like I said we're living in the Twilight Zone! Trump himself has said "Nobody knows what is up or down". People should have known it was coming when Trump said he could shoot somebody in Times Square and lose none of his voters.
So you think our country would be far better off, if everybody, especially the media would just totally ignore the things Trump says and only focus on the bills he signs and the executive orders he issues?
