In light of the attack from the Invisible Enemy, as well as the need to protect the jobs of our GREAT American Citizens, I will be signing an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States!

The Chief White House Correspondent of the New York Times snarks:
Trump, who says the country is ready to begin reopening, says the crisis is so bad that he is signing an order to "temporarily suspend immigration into the United States!"

In other words:
1. It’s crazy for Trump to want Americans to be increasingly allowed out of the house to buy plants for their gardens or walk on the beach or cut hair.
2. It’s crazy for Trump not to want to let in more immigrants at the moment, what with all the jobs Americans just don’t want to do.
