Democrat CA Gov. Destroys Media Narrative on Trump and Coronavirus, Praises President’s Response
While Democrats and the mainstream media would like you to believe that the Trump administration botched its response to the coronavirus, California Governor Gavin Newsom praised the commander-in-chief for following through on his promises to help with the repatriation of infected cruise ship passengers off the coast of the state.
Newsweek reports that at a press conference on Monday, Newsom said, “We had a private conversation, but he said, ‘We’re gonna do the right thing’ and ‘You have my support, all of our support, logistically and otherwise.”
“He said everything I could have hoped for,” the governor continued. “And we had a very long conversation and every single thing he said, they followed through on.”
The Blaze points out that Newsom’s sentiments are in stark contrast with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s, who played the blame game and claimed the stock market volatility was President Trump’s fault.
On Monday, the Speaker said, “I think that what is happening there is a reflection of lack of confidence, and so we would hope that what is coming out of the White House will be more consistent with what the health advisers are putting forth. We would hope that rather than name-calling, [Trump] would be again joining with his health care professionals who are advising him and the rest of us in a well-coordinated government agenda.”
President Trump acknowedged the praise from Democrat governors last night, tweeting, “Our CoronaVirus Team has been doing a great job. Even Democrat governors have been VERY complimentary!”
