The United States is more than halfway the 15-day guideline set by President Donald Trump’s administration last week to batter the ongoing coronavirus epidemy, and Trump is talking about lessening the stringency of the social-distancing guidelines to help boost the economy.
However, the CEO of Cardano blockchain foundation, Charles Hoskinson, predicted what he expects from the president of the world’s most powerful country with a contrary opinion.
Charles said in his own opinion, he thinks the president would make the decision of shutting down the country finally by the end of the 15 days which will come up next week. He said that he expects that a full quarantine would be done then.
CEO Charles Hoskinson said the speculation that Trump would ease the strictness of the social distancing rule is just a means of diverting people’s attention. He further explained that if the White House hints on shutting the country by the end of the 15 days, the level of panicking within the country would be heightened.
“The speculation about reopening is to prevent people from panicking or relocating,” Charles said.
Here is my prediction. I could be totally wrong but I think Trump is actually going to shut down the country with a full quarantine at the end of his 15 day guidelines next week. The speculation about reopening is to prevent people from panicking or relocating.

Donald Trump Deliberates Alleviating Social Distancing Rule
On the seventh day of the 15-day guideline initiative, instituted by the White House, President Donald Trump seems to be considering a move to lessen the stringency of the rules.
While hinting that the country may go from better to worse as it battles the plague, the president, in a tweet, signaled that the White House may have to let people go back to work.
“We cannot let the cure be worse than the problem itself. At the end of the 15 day period, we will make a decision as to which way we want to go!,” Trump stated.
During a briefing at the White House on Monday evening, Trump further signaled the possibility of reopening activities, explaining that the United States wasn’t built to be shut down.
“Our country wasn’t built to be shut down. This is not a country that was built for this. It was not built to be shut down. Certainly, this is going to be bad,” Trump said.
