The United States of America is gradually and rightfully beginning to reopen for business. At the behest of health officials, Americans engaged in the shelter-in-place orders to flatten the curve of coronavirus.
As we now know, the curve has flattened; as a matter of fact, it’s flattened so much that hospitals don’t have enough work to keep nurses or other healthcare workers on board.
In light of this, governors across America are putting forth and implementing various plans to re-engage their economies. Even certain Democrat governors, such as Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer and Wisconsin’s Tony Evers, are realizing that they cannot keep their states locked down indefinitely.
During a conference call with America’s governors yesterday, President Trump warned that the federal government will intervene if they observe “something going wrong,” according to Fox News.

During additional remarks, the 45th president urged governors to let him know if they’re having any issues in their states.
Joining the president on the conference call was First Lady Melania Trump. The first lady urged our nation’s governors to focus on mental health and ways that federal governments can work with states on mental health matters, especially those pertaining to children.
