The Washington Examiner reports the following:
Former White House strategist Steve Bannon called for a “full shutdown” in the United States to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
“I don’t think we have months to do this,’ Bannon told Fox News’s Sunday Morning Futures, later adding, “Drop the hammer. Don’t mitigate the virus. Don’t spread the curve. Shatter the curve and go full hammer on the virus right now with a full shutdown. Use the stimulus to kind of bridge that economic crisis — it may take $2 trillion, it may take $3 trillion — to force cash into the little entrepreneur and to the little guy.”
Trump shot down the possibility of a nationwide lockdown to contain the spread of the virus on Friday.
