Trump may want to be a dictator, but he isn't. Or isn't yet.

Definitely does not have the power to do your third item (force the states).

I am almost as sure he can't do the second. It would take too much getting down into the weeds of who has the option of working at home.

The first is an interesting one. I'll say -- probably not. If he does, we could see the first federal workers strike in a very long time, and first ever without a picket line.

Stores and restaurants were closing before governors order them closed. No politician can order me back in.
