California Governor Gavin Newsom Praises President Trump’s Coronavirus Response

California Governor Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.) had nothing but praise for President Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus, particularly with regards to a cruise ship carrying several infected patients near California, as Breitbart reports.

The far-left governor, who has previously clashed with President Trump on such issues as sanctuary states, said in a press conference Monday that “every single thing he said, they followed through on,” referring to the President’s promised assistance in dealing with the quarantined Grand Princess cruise ship. Twenty-one passengers on the ship have been confirmed to have contracted the virus.

At the press conference, Newsom also said that President Trump promised him, in a private meeting, that California would “have my support, all of our support, logistically and otherwise.” Newsom added that the President said “everything that I could have hoped for.”

In addition to the cruise ship near San Francisco Bay, California has already confirmed at least one case of the coronavirus in the state, which led to Governor Newsom declaring a state of emergency.
