Trump slams 'rude & nasty' Dems admitting Covid-19 cooperation bad between parties
“No matter what you do for the Do Nothing Democrats, no matter how GREAT a job you are doing, they will only respond to their Fake partners in the Lamestream Media in the negative, even in a time of crisis,” Trump tweeted on Saturday.
He added that his working relationship with Democrats during the Covid-19 pandemic has been “even worse” than before and revealed senators held a “rude and nasty” conference call with Vice President Mike Pence, who heads the White House Coronavirus Task Force, on Friday where little progress was made.
“He gave them everything that they would have wanted to hear in terms of gaining ground on the CoronaVirus, but nothing that anyone could have said, including ‘it’s over,’ could have made them happy,” the president vented.
“They were RUDE and NASTY. This is their political playbook, and they will use it right up to the election on November 3rd,” he continued, adding that “America will not be fooled!!!”
No matter what you do for the Do Nothing Democrats, no matter how GREAT a job you are doing, they will only respond to their Fake partners in the Lamestream Media in the negative, even in a time of crisis. I thought it would be different, but it’s not. In fact, it’s even worse...— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 18, 2020
....them happy, or even a little bit satisfied. They were RUDE and NASTY. This is their political playbook, and they will use it right up to the election on November 3rd. They will not change because they feel that this is the only way they can win. America will not be fooled!!!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 18, 2020
Some lawmakers have expressed just as much animosity over the talk as the president. Maine Sen. Angus King (I) said he has “never been so mad about a phone call” in his life.
A point of contention appears to be Trump’s desire to begin rolling back stay-at-home orders and reopening the US economy next month, while many Democrats insist more Covid-19 testing must be done first.Also on rt.com ‘We’re being held hostage!’ Minnesota governor eases coronavirus lockdown after angry outcry from #ReopenMN protesters
Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-New Hampshire) tweeted after the call that she is concerned “the administration still doesn’t have a plan to track daily testing capacity in every lab in the country, publicly release that data, and put forward a plan and timeline for identifying gaps.”
Various governors, such as New York’s Andrew Cuomo, continue to insist more thorough testing and tracing of the virus is needed before they consider reopening their states and easing back lockdown orders, while places like Texas, Minnesota, and Florida have already begun dropping restrictions as more and more citizens take to demonstrating and protesting against the measures.Also on rt.com ‘Fire Fauci, let us work’: No social distancing as Alex Jones joins hundreds in rally against Covid-19 lockdown measures in Texas
