President argues that Georgia is opening too soon

During his press conference on Wednesday, President Trump spoke out about Georgia Governor Brian Kemp's decision to start reopening parts of the state on Friday.

During his press conference on Wednesday, the 45th President "asserted that Kemp’s rolled-back restrictions were 'in violation' of the first step of his administration’s phased plan to return to normal and revive the economic standstill" according to

Governor Kemp's decision to start reopening parts of his state this week has drawn controversy since he made that decision public.  According to, "Kemp said specifically that fitness centers, bowling alleys, body art studios, barbers, hair and nail salons, and massage therapy businesses can reopen as early Friday, April 24." 

Many of these businesses require individuals to be in close proximity to one another and such closeness would obviously prevent individuals from adhering to  the President's social distancing guidelines. Additionally, Kemp's decision wouldn't adhere to the staged re-opening procedures the President announced only a few days ago.
