Georgia Governor Brian Kemp faces resistance from mayors and business owners over move to re-open state



Georgia Republican Governor is pushing to reopen a range of businesses in the state, including hair and nail salons, gyms, and restaurants despite White House guidelines that suggest waiting for a 14-day downward trajectory of COVID-19 cases. Jamie Booth, an Atlanta hair salon owner, joins AC360 to explain why she will remain closed until at least mid-May to keep both herself and her clients safe. Plus, after President Trump tweeted "Liberate Michigan," the state's Democratic Governor, Gretchen Whitmer, responded in an op-ed saying "we need to get this right" when it comes to re-opening any state. She tells Anderson Cooper she's trying to save lives. Airdate: April 21, 2020 via Knit
