After haranguing governors for continuing their lockdowns, President Donald Trump said Wednesday he told Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp "that I disagree, strongly, with his decision to open certain facilities." Kemp is allowing many establishments, from gyms to massage parlors, to reopen Friday. Trump argued that those businesses could "wait a little bit longer." Meanwhile, in Germany, where some restrictions are also being lifted amid comparatively low death rates, Chancellor Angela Merkel warned that while "we have won time," it was "still the beginning" of the pandemic. Global cases have surpassed 2.6 million, with 184,000 deaths.
