President Trump Forms Committee To Guide Process For Re-Opening of Sports, U.S. Economy

Tuesday evening President Trump once again mentioned the importance of getting sports back. He also announced that commissioners of many sports leagues are now part of a new committee working to get sports and the U.S. economy back after the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We have to get our sports back. I’m tired of watching baseball games that are 14 years old. I haven’t had much time to watch. I would say maybe I watch one batter and then I get back to work.

On April 4, President Donald Trump held a conference call with all major-league sports commissioners discussing the all-of-America response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Commissioner Gary Bettman was on the call for the NHL. President Trump recognized the “good work” done teams and players in their communities, the workforce, and the fanbase.

President Trump hopes to have fans back in arenas and stadiums by August or September, but due to the overwhelming Coronavirus outbreak, medical experts may find that timeline unrealistic.
