Trump Says He Told Pence to Ignore Governors in Hard-Hit Areas If They Are “Not Appreciative”

As the U.S. death toll reached 1,500, Donald Trump says he told the head of the White House’s coronavirus task force not to bother calling state governors in some hot spot areas.

Trump singled out the Democratic leaders of Washington and Michigan, noting that he had advised Pence not to call them as the healthcare crisis plagues their states and people fall sick and die. 

Trump’s message to governors was that he wants “them to be appreciative.”

“He calls all the governors,” Trump said. “I tell him, I mean, I’m a different type of person. I say Mike, don’t call the governor of Washington, you’re wasting your time with him. Don’t call the woman in Michigan.” 

“If they don’t treat you right, I don’t call,” Trump said. 

“We have done a hell of a job,” Trump said. “The federal government has really stepped up.”
