Officials across the country are scrambling to get their arms around the coronavirus outbreak.
The virus appears to be spiraling out of control.
One Democrat made a coronavirus move that left everyone scratching their heads.
A top Democrat took one life-saving measure that made Andrew Cuomo furious.
Andrew Cuomo has become a big name within the Democratic Party in the last couple of weeks.
The mainstream media has been praising his efforts extensively as his city struggles to cope with the outbreak.
What has Andrew Cuomo done to deserve this praise? He has enacted the same social distancing measures as several other states.
The main reason that the Democrats love Cuomo is that he’s doing his best to blame Trump for not doing enough to get him resources from the federal stockpile.
It isn’t helpful in stopping the Chinese coronavirus, though it’s doing wonders for his political career.
Another Democratic state governor took a different course and instead of blaming Trump for problems with resources he got from the federal stockpile he got the problem fixed without blaming anyone.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom got 170 ventilators that needed repairs from the federal stockpile.
Instead of using this as an opportunity to bash Trump, Newsom found the resources to get them promptly fixed.
According to the Daily Wire:
Newsom said during a press conference that the ventilators had been sent by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and that they were being repaired by Bloom Energy, The Hill reported.
“Rather than lamenting about it, rather than complaining about it, rather than pointing fingers, rather than generating headlines in order to generate more stress and anxiety, we got a car and a truck,” Newsom said after he toured the facility where the ventilators would be repaired. “We had those 170 brought here to this facility at 8 a.m. this morning, and they are quite literally working on those ventilators right now.”
On Twitter, Newsom said the ventilators were expected to be fixed and back in Los Angeles on Monday.
“That’s the spirit of CA,” he added.
Newsom said he learned about the ventilator issues after visiting Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) last week, The Hill reported.
In a statement released Saturday, Newsom’s office explained that Bloom Energy had “transformed its production facility to quickly refurbish life-saving ventilators to provide California with the critical equipment it needs to prepare for a potential surge in COVID-19 patients.”
A statement released by Newsom’s office said “more than 350 businesses and manufacturers in California reached out to offer to re-tool their facilities to make medical supplies and essential products during this crisis.” offering to manufacture products like face masks, hand sanitizer, and even refurbishing ventilators.
Finding solutions and being resourceful rather than blaming someone else, now that’s good leadership.
This is a time of crisis. The Democrats need to figure out that Trump isn’t the source of the coronavirus troubles.
Trump is doing his best to respond in a way that will save Americans’ lives.
We need more Democrats to act like Newsom and focus on finding a solution instead of playing political games.
