CLAIM: Democrat guvs praised the Trump administration’s action to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, President Trump stated Tuesday throughout the first governmental debate in Cleveland, Ohio.
In March, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) expressed his gratitude to Trump and Vice President Mike Pence for supporting the state’s efforts to develop drive-through screening centers, according to Breitbart News.
” I wish to thank the vice president, and specifically the president, who facilitated this and moved quickly,” he said.
In April, Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D) echoed Cuomo’s comments throughout Pence’s see to the Mayo Clinic.
” I can inform you that the vice president spends many hours on the phone with guvs every week; he’s there to pick up the phone when we call. I wish to thank you and the president,” Walz said.
At the White Home in April, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) also applauded the administration’s reaction.
” We are grateful to both President Donald Trump and Vice President Pence for keeping Louisiana at the forefront of this battle against COVID-19 and value them understanding the requirement of these ventilators for the survival of our people,” Bel Edwards stated, “particularly due to today’s sobering numbers.”
During the dispute Tuesday, Trump stated Biden did not think the country must have been closed to safeguard people as much as possible.
” You wouldn’t have actually closed it for another two months. By my doing it early, in fact, Dr. Fauci said, ‘President Trump saved thousands of lives.’ A lot of your Democrat guvs said, ‘President Trump did a remarkable task,'” he informed the previous vice president.
The president continued:
We worked with the guvs. Oh truly? Go have a look. The guvs said I did an incredible task. The majority of them stated that. In reality, individuals that would not be always on my side said that, “President Trump did a sensational task.” We did. We got the dress, we got the masks, we made the ventilators. You would not have made ventilators, and now we’re weeks far from a vaccine. We’re doing therapeutics currently. Fewer individuals are dying when they get ill. Far less individuals are dying. We’ve done a great task.
Nevertheless, Trump said the media kept giving him criticism concerning his action to the pandemic, calling it “fake news.”
” They offer you great press, they offer me criticism since that’s the way it is, unfortunately,” he said, adding that he did not care and that he had actually ended up being “used to it.”
” But I’ll tell you, Joe, you could never have actually done the task that we did. You do not have it in your blood You could have. never ever done that job,” the president concluded.
