President Trump has officially backed Pennsylvania residents who are opposing the draconian lockdown orders imposed by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolfe (D).
According to The Hill:
President Trump on Monday backed Pennsylvania residents who oppose restrictions intended to slow the spread of the coronavirus in the state and accused Democratic governors of leaving such measures in place “for political purposes.”
Trump has previously expressed support for protesters demonstrating against stay-at-home orders, but the new criticism of Pennsylvania comes ahead of his expected trip to the battleground state this week.
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolfe (D) has sparked pushback from state Republicans for his deliberate pace in reopening the state, which has more than 56,000 total cases of coronavirus.
The Supreme Court last Wednesday denied a request from a conservative political action committee and several businesses to halt Wolf’s stay-at-home order amid the pandemic.
President Trump and his administration are actively trying to convince the country that it is safe and necessary to reopen the economy.
