President Trump talks about the "new normal" and explained his three-phase plan to reopen the American economy at Thursday's White House coronavirus task force briefing.
QUESTION: Part of the guidance seems to have sort of shift to states and companies, the burden not just of additional testing and surveillance, but also the sort of new normal in which, you know, there's smaller crowds in restaurants and bars and--
PRESIDENT TRUMP: Oh, that's not going to be normal. There's not going to be a new normal where somebody has been having for 25 years 158 seats in a restaurant and now he's got 30 or he's got 60 because that wouldn't work. That's not normal. No, normal will be if he has the 158 or 68 seats, and that's going to happen and it's going to happen relatively quickly, we hope.
But that's our normal. Our normal is if you have 100,000 people in an Alabama football game or 110,000, to be exact, we want 110,000 people. We want every seat occupied. Normal is not going to be where you have a game with 50,000 people.
