Parts of the United States could relax their pandemic mitigation countermeasures before the end of the month, President Trump suggested on Tuesday, although the details aren’t clear.


Trump used his daily briefing at the White House to tease the prospect that more than 20 states might be able to re-open in some form or change their practices before May 1 — even though he also said the federal guidelines on social distancing and other practices would stay in effect until then.

Trump promised a national plan for re-opening and normalization soon and said he intended to talk with all 50 governors on Thursday amidst a running dispute about where his power begins and ends relative to their choices about the public health disaster.
