Last Friday, President Trump announced, “I’m going to have to make a decision … I would say without question it’s the biggest decision I’ve ever had to make.” State and local officials have that power. Trump claims the power is his, but he’s wrong.
….It is the decision of the President, and for many good reasons. With that being said, the Administration and I are working closely with the Governors, and this will continue. A decision by me, in conjunction with the Governors and input from others, will be made shortly!
