President Trump on Tuesday night set out two concepts that his administration is considering to reopen the economy, one on a regional basis and the other nationwide. During an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity Trump said he’d like to get the economy back with “a big bang.” “We’re starting to look at it very, very thoroughly, we have some great people looking at it because we want to get this country open,” Trump said. “We have to get our country open again. This [country] wasn’t designed to have this — you crack it, you crack it in half. It’s no good.
We’ll be open again much sooner rather than later,” he pledged. “I’d love to open with a big bang, one beautiful country and just open,” Trump said, although he added that some say that might not be the best way.

Trump suggested that some places where the curve is flattening more quickly could reopen sooner. Which way to go, Trump said, will be announced “in the near future.” Trump also expressed optimism in a Wednesday post on Twitter. “Once we OPEN UP OUR GREAT COUNTRY, and it will be sooner rather than later, the horror of the Invisible Enemy, except for those that sadly lost a family member or friend, must be quickly forgotten,” the president tweeted. “Our Economy will BOOM, perhaps like never before!!!”
