Trump was quoted to say at the White House; ‘‘I want fans back in the arenas, I think it’s … whenever we’re ready.
“As soon as we can, obviously. And the fans want to be back, too. They want to see basketball and baseball and football and hockey.
“They want to see their sports. They want to go out onto the golf courses and breathe nice, clean, beautiful fresh air” he added.
Whilst addressing players of the Little League players on Saturday, Trump tweeted “hang in there! We will get you back out on the fields, and know that you will be playing baseball soon.
“We will get through this together, and bats will be swinging before you know it.”
To all of our youth who are missing the start of their @LittleLeague seasons, hang in there! We will get you back out on the fields, and know that you will be playing baseball soon….
