The White House Press Secretary on Trump's push to reopen schools: "The science should not stand in the way of this."

McEnany reiterated  President Trump 's strong stance on wanting children to be going back to school in the fall amid a fiery debate about how educators can prevent the spread of the coronavirus outbreak. "The science should not stand in the way of this, but as Dr. Scott Atlas said -- I thought this was a good quote, 'Of course, we can do it. Everyone else in the Western world, our peer nations are doing it. We are the outlier here,'" McEnany said, quoting the former Stanford Medical Center neurology chief. "The science is very clear on this. For example, you look at the JAMA pediatric study of 46 pediatric hospitals in North America that said the risk of critical illness from COVID is far less for children than the seasonal flu. The science is on our side here. We encourage localities and states to just simply follow the science. Open our schools," she continued.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany SMOKES the media at the end of press conference

White House Press Secretary  Kayleigh McEnany  scolded reporters during Monday’s press briefing for failing to ask a single question about a violent weekend that saw an 8-year-old girl die in Atlanta, as the nation saw a surge in gun violence. “I’d end with this, I was asked probably 12 questions about the Confederate flag, this president is focused on action and I’m a little dismayed that I didn’t receive one question on the deaths that we got in this country this weekend,” McEnany said. “I didn’t receive one question about New York City shootings doubling for the third-straight week... not one question.

It broke my heart, a dad of an 8-year-old last in Atlanta this weekend, ‘They say Black lives matter. You killed a child, she didn’t do nothing to nobody.’” McEnany then said, “We need to be focused on securing our streets, making sure no lives are

Kayleigh McEnany: ‘Under President Trump we’re seeing decreases in crime’

McEnany made the comments amid growing calls to weaken law enforcement in the wake of the death of  George Floyd  while in police custody. Days after Floyd's death,  Black Lives Matter  announced a “call for a national defunding of police” — and notable Democratic voices, as well as celebrities, have echoed the sentiment. Republican attorneys general  across the country are pushing back on calls to defund law enforcement agencies in the wake of the protests over police brutality and racial injustice, arguing that cutting budgets to police departments would be “extremely dangerous and reckless.” “That's exactly right,” McEnany said in response. “Under President Trump, we're seeing decreases in crime, but under blue state governors and blue state mayors, we're seeing the exact opposite with this proposal,” she added. And  Kayleigh McEnany was asked about Trump’s tweet yesterday regarding an older Buffalo protester who was shoved by police last week and fell t
