  • 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.
  • The president mentioned Washington Gov. Jay Inslee and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, both Democrats who have been critical of the White House’s actions to combat the deadly pandemic.
  • 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.”

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.

As we have seen in New York with the Global Entry program that tRump revoked because New York refused to drop the law suits against his companies and himself that NY were winning in court.   Now the authoritarian Dear Leader demands praise and obedience to his completely wrong and deadly plans to give any federal assistance to this national crisis.    tRump’s view is pay me now or pay me later, also pay me both times.   We are in deep shit people, deep and scary shit.   Hugs

    • Hello bereavedandbeingasingleparent. Dang right, something he is really good at is being horribly incompetent while praising himself for how good he dreams he made everything. 😀😁😃 Hugs

  3. Scottie, The Guardian has an excellent piece on contrasting the actions made by South Korea versus those not taken by the US when we each learned of the first virus by a citizen on January 20. It is called “The missing six weeks: how Trump failed his biggest test.” Keith

  4. Excellent article, Keith. Just illustrates one more time how totally unequipped this man is in leading a country. Of course we knew this already, but he’s just reinforced our beliefs during this crisis. What did we do to deserve this ineptitude?
