Trump attacks governors requesting medical resources as 'little problem children' in unhinged rant

Published 11 hours ago on March 28, 2020

On Saturday, ahead of seeing off the naval hospital ship USNS Comfort on its way to New York to deal with the coronavirus hot zone, President Donald Trump once again lashed out at governors requesting medical resources, calling them “a couple of little problem children.”

“I would say we’ll use [the Defense Production Act] again once or twice,” Trump told a reporter on the White House lawn. “We have a couple of little problem children, and we’ll use it where we have to. But overall, I tell you, the private, free enterprise system is at work like nobody’s seen in a long time.”


Presumably, Trump is referring to Govs. Jay Inslee (D-WA) and Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI), with whom he is feuding publicly and has attacked by name multiple times in recent days.


Whitmer has stated that the federal government has “canceled” or “delayed” shipments of necessary medical supplies to her state as Trump has turned his anger on her — and Trump has seemingly confirmed the retaliation by suggesting at Friday’s press conference that he ordered Vice President Mike Pence not to even call back governors he believes need to be more “appreciative” of his administration’s coronavirus efforts...................................

The victims families --those who died recently--may speak out against Trump someday--someday.

that there is no bottom to the pit that is Trump's callousness. With no morals, ethics, empathy, sympathy or honesty, Donald Trump personifies the abyss that is humankind's worst attributes.

16. Why Do You Think The Fed Is Gathering Med Resources

Blue states got screwed with the tax bill (lowering S/L deductions) and they'll get screwed on the distribution of Med supplies and stimulus $. As I've said before, this situation is very similar to a spousal abuse situation. We need federal laws/rules which distribute more federal tax receipts where they are gathered! If the Red states don't like "liberal" state socialism then start refusing excess federal aid and live on your own receipts.

3. I think he was referring to the CEO of GM and other companies not doing his bidding ASAP.

That would be why the Defense Production Act is necessary.

especially because Trump used the Defense Production Act to force GM to make ventilators.

However, I don't know the full story about this, especially from GM's perspective.

9. He's exposing himself by doing this

As a failure from not being capable of doing his job. He's so flawed he can't even do the basic things needed to get through a crisis like this. We already have seen this with the PR hurricane where he did nothing , then lied claiming he was great . His claims are always based on propaganda and BS. Because of trump failures with this , is why we're in this crisis situation now, while he refuses being responsible for anything. If he's done this to purposely hurt people with , it exposes an even darker side of trump , and how he shows contempt for the American people, and how little he value's others lives. trumps failures with this will be his legacy, and he'll be known for that forever now.

19. Yes

Trump always needs adversaries and conflict. He thrives on it and it also allows him to deflect attention from his own shortcomings. Creating opponents also could feed the void left by not being able to have his big rallies. It is like a perverted addiction.

14. The governor of California

received respirators - all broken. He had to contact a company to repair them before they could be used. I want to know which members of tRump's family are furiously making supplies, to make a killing from the bailout cash? tRump is delaying all other methods for supplies to be made. I read that he NEVER contacted GM about making respirators, until recently. Total disaster of a president, or even as a human being.

Does not belong to GM any more. Trump actually thanked the company that bought it.

GM is building a new plant concentrating on batteries.

13. So when a natural disaster, like a hurricane,,occurs, governors are on their own.

According to Trump, no state should look for help to the federal government when an unexpected event occurs that overwhelms a state—which is just contrary to our decades of experience. Trump declared a national disaster. Just what does he think that entails? What an idiot. He is clearly hoping that blue state citizens die.

Trump supporters are just as guilty because polls keep showing that they approve of Trump and everything he is doing. If his good “Christians” do not believe that it is morally indefensible for a president to use political ploys and let people die because they happen to live in a state that did not cote form him, they should stop approving his actions in polls. Low approval ratings from his base are the only facts he considers.

What happened to their belief of turning the other cheek? Trump is seeking revenge to pay governors back for justified criticism.

deserving of living and will do so without help. Good christian white americans will not get the virus. Only low life democrats and socialists get diseases and then need help. Good old regular Amurricans do not get diseases. Don't you know this??

How do they plan to get him to 270 without MI? They've got to be begging him to stop screwing MI so overtly -- it totally undercuts his "blame it on the governors" plan to be so obvious about it.
