#REOPENINGAMERICA The Heritage Foundation President Kay C. James joined American industry leaders and CEOs on a White House call with President Trump today to discuss the administration’s Great American Revival efforts. Last night President Trump announced that he would consult James as one of America’s thought leaders with ideas for restarting the U.S. economy. “I am grateful to work with President Trump alongside economists, scholars, and industry leaders on the Great American Economic Revival,” James said. “We are committed to developing plans to get Americans back to work as soon as it’s safe to do so and helping the nation recover from COVID-19. The president has assembled an amazing team, and I am honored to be a part of it." We launched the National Coronavirus Recovery Commission to bring together experts in medicine, economics, business, government, disaster relief, and education to develop recommendations to save both the lives and livelihoods of Americans from this pandemic and provide our nation’s leaders with a roadmap to reopen America when the time comes to do so safely. Kay C. James said she is “excited to bring those recommendations to the president’s Great American Economic Revival team.” Watch @robertbluey on @one_america_news_ laying out the goals of the Commission.
