President Donald Trump backed away from his dream of restarting the economy by Easter, declaring last night that Americans should follow rigid social distancing restrictions at least through April. That's after public health experts predicted the U.S. could suffer up to 200,000 coronavirus deaths. Still, Trump said, "a lot of great things will be happening" by June. As of early Monday, the country had recorded 143,000 infections and more than 2,400 fatalities.
Will Trump take quicker action now? He expressed dismay at how hard his hometown of New York City has been hit, but some worry he's still distracted by feuding with governors over resources.
