Kemp Opening Businesses In Georgia Was Not Trump’s Idea
Using his favorite mode of communication twitter, President Donald Trump on Friday night said that vice president Mike Pence and he did not give any kind of approval to Georgia governor Brian Kemp to reopen the certain businesses in his state and he also bashed the media for criticizing him for this action.
“Spas, beauty salons, tattoo parlors, & barber shops should take a little slower path, but I told the Governor to do what is right for the great people of Georgia (& USA)!” Trump said in this tweet.
Governor kemp’s plan was to allow businesses like barbershops, hair salons, spas, and tattoo parlors, movie theatres, and bowling alleys to reopen as soon as this week provided, they follow the set of guidelines related to physical distancing but media thought that this action was too premature.
The president quoted the said news as “fake news”. It must be noted that President Trump is not happy with how the media operates and has been very aggressive towards them since he became the President.
Trump said he “totally disagrees” with the governor’s actions and believes they should go slow and said that “I wasn’t happy with Brian Kemp, I wasn’t at all happy.” Kemp, however, also responded with some of his tweets clarifying his position where he explained his plans to operate in this situation.
“Our decisions and direction are informed by data and public health recommendations.” Kemp tweeted.
“Now, with favorable data and approval from state health officials, we are taking another measured step forward by opening shuttered businesses for limited operations,” the governor tweeted.
