Newsom Praises Trump as ‘Proactive’ in Coronavirus Response

April 4, 2020   |   by James G. Dalton

California Gov. Gavin Newsom praised President Donald Trump for his “proactive” response to the coronavirus outbreak during an interview with “The View” after host Joy Behar asked if he was complimenting Trump to secure his support.

“Governor, it’s no secret that you’ve had a combative relationship with Trump in the past, but lately, you’ve been praising him for the help he’s giving. Of course, you have to, because look at how he treats governors who don’t kiss his ring,” Behar asked Newsom, according to Mediaite. “The governor of Washington, the governor of Michigan, he said they were not appreciative and told Mike Pence, ‘don’t call them back.’ Do you feel like you have to feed this guy’s ego to get the respirators, to get the PPEs, is that what’s going on?”

Newsom admitted that although he’s taking part in “at least 68 lawsuits with the Trump administration,” and “there’s no question we’ve had our differences of opinion on many issues,” he feels that he has a strong relationship with the administration.

“All I can say is that, from my perspective, the relationship has been strong,” the governor said. “I’m not doing it to kiss the ring, I’m not doing it in a way, you know, — I’m just being forthright with the president. He returns calls, he reaches out, he’s been proactive.”

    Despite pelosi and schummer and the others who want to take over our country for their own selfish and evil purposes this president (D.Trump) has stood the tests. These EVIL people want control and socialism AND HAVE IGNORED THE WANT OF THOSE WHO DESERVE TO HAVE THEIR PRESIDENT FOR A TERM. I have seen socialism and in a way I hope they get it, the people who will put them into office will get what they deserve – and they WONT’T LIKE IT AND CAN’T END IT!

    Anyone who listens to that fat cow JOY Behar has to be a complete idiot. What has she EVER given to this country. All she does is try to divide the country.

    Joy Behar is considered a repulsive t.v. personality, as some of the late night comedians. It’s good that the Calif. governor and President can bypass Pelosi and cooperate for the good of the people. Some immature minds can’t seem to understand that. The Washington state governor and a few others were shamed after mismanaging funds, He had been reminded of the need for ventilators several years ago. Cuomo had a little trouble getting organized with the supplies, that he had. The President advised, that it’s wise for governors to take responsibility, then connect with the President as needed. That’s like a teacher trying to run around to all your students, who don’t need help, while others are sitting and waiting for help. The President stopped China tourism in January, shortly after the virus hit China in Dec., Pelosi was saying the President was discriminating. So it’s great they can work for the good of the nation and overlook petty bickerings instigated by some of these immature, t.v. controversial personalities. Thank God for good leadership!

      I’m a California resident and I have minimal respect for our Governor. I do hope that his support of our President is not disingenuous. He (Newsome) is after all Nancy Pelosi’s nephew. So it would not surprise me that his conversations with the President go straight to Pelosi’s ears.

    Our Governor knows what he has to do to protect our people of the largest state in the U.S. He isn’t going to kiss Trumps ring to get it. He has gone against Trumps people’s orders to do exactly what he needs to keep his sate safe by asking school boards to shut down our schools, our towns where businesses are not a necessity and his retired medical staff to come back and help out. He hasn’t had to mandate any of it we the people are doing what he asks because we are a state that truly cares, sees and believes what can and will happen if we don’t adhere!
    I thank and applaud him for being one of the first Governor’s to go against what a Trump was saying at the onset of all this pandemic happenings!

    The dem states are the ones in such a miserable state. President Trump has tried to rescue every dem Governor who doesn’t know what their doing and has left their state most vulnerable. The real problem is the people are running away to my state and spreading the virus to us.

    I don’t know how President Trump can control this sharing of the virus running rampant in NY and California, etc. These terrible governors like big mouth Cuomo should be investigated when it’s all over. They have put lives in jeopardy while throwing the entire medical system in a frenzy, hospitals without the proper supplies. It’s outrageous. They’ve made their State’s problems everyone else’s and have created a much more precarious situation than had to be for our President, who has done and continues to do an amazing job. He’s my President and Ive never been prouder and more thankful.

    We are going to prevail, we are going to win this act of conspiracy and act of hatred and greed, this act of socialism and globalism, communism and dictatorship. We know what to do. We have said it many times, like the Germans, discipline of our families and our life styles. Cleanliness and isolation, clean face masks, make them your self, clean your possessions, car, home, sanatise everthing. More than any other time in history we have hundreds of channels on TV. We also have the internet around the world, we also have the church and family religions, we have items that can be made to help others, face masks, make them, clean them sanatise them and give them to those that can’t. This doesn’t take much to solve the problems. Don’t rely on gov’t to do it for you, it is your life and survival.
