Kudlow Says Americans Can Expect Information On Reopening Economy In ‘Next Day Or Two’

Published

White House Economic Adviser Larry Kudlow said on Fox Business “Varney and Co.” Tuesday that a plan for re-opening the American economy could be coming “in the next day or two.”

“The President has suggested a kind of rolling re-entry here but I don’t want to front-run his views, I don’t want to pre-announce anything this morning…It’s a question of health, it’s a question of safety and it’s a question of well-being so we can get the (middle class) back to work as soon as we safely can. I believe the country is ready to go back to work,” Kudlow told Varney.

He also acknowledged that the Chinese communist government must face consequences in  covering up the outbreak of the novel coronavirus in Wuhan, which led to the global pandemic.

“China needs to be held accountable on a number of measures,” Kudlow said. “Over a period of time they will be held accountable, no question about that. Having said that, the President is engaging with China. He’s speaking with President Xi, their relationship remains very positive so we are working with them.”

Kudlow mentioned that the administration would like to bring supply chains back to the U.S. in response to what has happened since the start of the pandemic.

“We would like to bring them home, just as a matter of policy across the board…100% expensing, whether it’s structures, plants, equipment, renovations, intellectual property, that would essentially pay the moving expenses for companies to come back to America…and by the way it would also help America to recover even more rapidly from the pandemic,” he said.

Illegal migrants refuse to leave Denver encampments, make demands of city including ‘fresh, culturally appropriate’ food and free lawyers

A group of illegal immigrants in Denver is not only refusing to leave encampments, but also have the audacity to take no actions until the city meets its demands. The migrants were organized enough to publish a document with 13 specific demands before they “acquiesce to Denver Human Services’ request to leave the encampments and move to more permanent shelters funded by the city” reports Fox News.

Demands were made following the Denver government obtaining a petition to have the migrants moved, according to the outlet. The Denver mayor has been under pressure from the city’s ongoing migrant crisis, making headlines and receiving stiff backlash earlier this year for proposing budget cuts to the city’s government, including cuts to the city’s police force, to fund more money for dealing with the city’s migrant crisis.

The list of demands was sent to Mayor Mike Johnston and included requests for provisions of “fresh, culturally appropriate” food, no time limits on showers and free immigration lawyers, the outlet reported. Further details of the demands read, “Migrants will cook their own food with fresh, culturally appropriate ingredients provided by the City instead of premade meals – rice, chicken, flour, oil, butter, tomatoes, onions, etc… Shower access will be available without time limits & can be accessed whenever… Medical professional visits will happen regularly & referrals/connections for specialty care will be made as needed.”

The migrants also insisted they get “connection to employment support, including work permit applications for those who qualify,” as well as “Consultations for each person/family with a free immigration lawyer.” The migrants insisted that if these are not met, they will not leave their tent community.

“At the end of the day, what we do not want is families on the streets of Denver,” Jon Ewing, a spokesman for Denver Human Services, told Fox 31.

The current encampment is situated “near train tracks and under a bridge,” Fox 31 noted, adding that it has been there for the last couple of weeks.

Ewing told Fox 31 the city just wants “to get families to leave that camp and come inside,” noting its offer will give migrants “three square meals a day” and the freedom to cook.

He also said the government is willing to work with people to compromise and help them figure out what kind of assistance they qualify for.

Ultimately, Ewing said, the city wants to work with migrants to determine, “What might be something that is a feasible path for you to success that is not staying on the streets of Denver?”
