CNBC Reports: Trump says he told Pence not to call governors who aren’t ‘appreciative’ of White House coronavirus efforts
Is your state suffering from the impacts of COVID-19? Well then your governor better start showing their appreciation according to Trump.
President Donald Trump said Friday that he instructed Vice President Mike Pence not to reach out to governors who aren’t “appreciative” of his administration’s efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus in their states. “If they don’t treat you right, I don’t call,” Trump said of those state leaders.
“I think they should be appreciative. Because you know what? When they’re not appreciative to me, they’re not appreciative to the Army Corps [of Engineers], they’re not appreciative to FEMA. It’s not right,” Trump told reporters at a daily press briefing at the White House.
That's right - the lives of millions of Americans are at risk because Donald Trump wants governors to boost his ego, once again.
Two Democratic Governors, Jay Inslee (WA) and Gretchen Whitmer (MI), have consistently asked Trump for support and have been met with confrontation.
Trump said that Pence “calls all the governors. And I tell him, I’m a different type of person, and I say, ’Mike, don’t call the governor of Washington. You’re wasting your time with him.”
“Don’t call the woman in Michigan. It doesn’t make any difference what happens,” Trump also said he told Pence, who leads the U.S. response to the coronavirus.
Our country now has over 100,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases. When will the Trump administration stop playing games and focus on Americans' lives instead of their own political motivations?
Americans deserve better.
