California Governor Gavin Newsom Commends Trump for His Response to Coronavirus Outbreak


Put this one down in the books as one to remember.

The Democratic Governor of California, Gavin Newsom, heaped praise on President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence for their response to the coronavirus outbreak. Newsom previously has deeply criticized the President on a variety of matters, however it appears that even he cannot deny Trump’s seriousness in fighting the outbreak.

Take a look:

The New York Times reports:

One notable flash of peace came on Sunday from Gov. Gavin Newsom of California, a Democrat and one of Mr. Trump’s most vocal critics. At a news conference, Mr. Newsom described the process of managing a cruise ship on which at least 21 people tested positive for the virus. He also praised Mr. Trump, saying the president had said “everything we could have hoped for” during a phone call.

“We are very grateful for this partnership,” Mr. Newsom said.

The administration’s challenge in delivering coronavirus testing kits to the states has been one of the most pressing concerns among governors. On Friday in Atlanta, Mr. Trump said “anyone who wants a test can get a test.” His health and human services secretary, Alex M. Azar II, later clarified that only people who have consulted with a doctor or medical professional could get a test.

The Daily Caller had this to add:

Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom praised the Trump Administration’s response to the Coronavirus outbreak Monday.

“We had a private conversation, but he said ‘We’re gonna do the right thing’ and ‘You have my support,'” Newsom said. “All of our support, logistically, and otherwise.”

“He said everything that I could have hoped for,” Newsom added. “Every single thing he said they followed through on.”

Newsom offered additional praise for Vice President Mike Pence, who is leading the White House’s Coronavirus task force.  Newsom said the administration has been helpful in “repatriating” passengers who were returning to the state from cruises.“

Every single thing his administration-and it starts at the top, including the vice president-has been ‘consistent with the expectation that we’d repatriate these passengers,” He added.
