President Trump said that the grocers are restocking and plan to remain open during the coronavirus crisis. People are hoarding groceries, and President Trump told Americans to “relax” and just buy what you need for the week.
“Relax… you don’t have to buy the quantities. It’s hard to refill the stores.”
