White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain defended teachers' unions who refuse to resume in-person teaching despite studies that have shown a low risk of spreading the coronavirus.
Klain was asked Tuesday night why he believed so many public schools were still closed despite studies backed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that continued to show it is safe for K-12 schools to reopen.
"I'll give you a word: money," Klain responded during a CNN interview. "That's why the president of the United States sent a plan to Congress even before he took office to make the investments you need to make the schools safe."
Klain later cited what he described as the "sizable grants" that schools in a CDC-touted study received.
