  • Trump declares churches 'essential'; Indiana had eased restrictions
    “Today I’m identifying houses of worship—churches, synagogues and mosques—as essential places that provide essential services. Governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now, for this weekend.” - President Trump on Friday. He said he would "override" governors who don't abide by his request. Gov. Eric Holcomb eased up restrictions on Indiana churches in early May. Holcomb said officials will be able to learn from places of worship depending on what happens over the next 14 to 21 days as in-person services resume. “We just thought a good place to start, or have a controlled group, would be places of worship …” he said. “But I did say we needed those church leaders to be responsible for their congregation. We can prove we can do this and I think we’ll see just that.” A study by Imperial College London revealed Indiana is one of 24 states where COVID is still spreading.

  • President Trump, Gov. Holcomb address the pandemic in their own words
    The COVID-19 pandemic is becoming the story of our time. As Sen. Todd Young explained, unlike the Great Recession of 2008-09 and the Oil Shock recession of 1979-82, what we are experiencing today is a double hammer: A pandemic and a severe economic panic. The Hoosier State is poised to go from a historic low 3.1% unemployment rate to double digits in the span of a month. At least one pandemic model says 2,400 Hoosiers will die.

    Tough times shift our attention to leadership. Here are quotes from President Trump and Gov. Eric Holcomb as the pandemic approached the U.S. and then impacted our nation and state.

    President Trump

    Jan. 22: “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.” – CNBC interview.

    Feb. 10: “Looks like by April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away.” – New Hampshire rally.

    Feb. 24: “The coronavirus is very much under control in the USA. … Stock market starting to look very good to me!” – On Twitter.

    Feb. 25: “China is working very, very hard. I have spoken to President Xi, and they are working very hard. If you know anything about him, I think he will be in pretty good shape. I think that is a problem that is going to go away.”

    Feb. 26: “We’re going to be pretty soon at only five people. And we could be at just one or two people over the next short period of time. So we’ve had very good luck.” – At a White House news conference.
