President Donald Trump has—from the beginning of the crisis created by the global pandemic—tried to dismiss and downplay then fast track virus containment efforts—like social distancing and stay at home orders—to help his own reelection chances.

The economy has been one of the few bright spots in the Trump presidency—although how responsible the 45th President was for any of the economic gains remains debatable.

But the exponential spread of the viral pathogen in the United States—after a lackadaisical initial federal response—called for drastic containment measures. And those measures are not good for Trump's economy.

Now—while confirmed cases and the death tolls continue to rise across the country—Trump is talking about ending those safety measures. To facilitate that effort, Trump named a crack team of public health experts to evaluate the risks and devise a plan that puts the health and safety of people first.

Just kidding, Trump picked people who made big donations, people who will put profits first and people who are grossly unqualified for the jobs they already hold in the Trump administration.

Needless to say, confidence is not high for Trump's panel of experts.

CREW or the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington broke down their objections.

And one newly appointed council member is already on CREW's radar for shady dealings.

But one person pointed out a fact Trump and his profits over people council are forgetting.

What if they re-opened a country and nobody came?
