Trump demands appreciation from governors for coronavirus response

WASHINGTON — President Trump used his daily coronavirus briefing to attack Democratic governors who in his estimation had shown insufficient gratitude for his administration’s response to the pandemic.

“I want them to be appreciative,” Trump said, arguing that failing to show appreciation was insulting not just to him but to the Army Corps of Engineers, which has been part of the federal response to the pandemic.

The president said he has told Vice President Mike Pence not to call governors who haven’t shown proper deference to his administration. “They don’t treat you right, I don’t call,” Trump said, in a recurrence of his characteristic sensitivity to slights that he has recently been holding in check.

He has, for example, been quick to praise Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York, invariably pointing out that they have in turn praised him.

@goldberg,
You see, if I made a defamatory accusation about someone that turned out to be false, I'd say "sorry," or at the very least acknowledge it once quickly. I can see that's not your way. You just move on to the next set of accusations. That's dishonorable behavior.

Dishonorable is demanding someone apologize to you because their opinion doesn't agree with yours.

You omitted the part where I asked him numerous times to provide the quotation in which Trump said it.

Try google. I've found it there many times. This BS of prove it is just a way to deny without proving it. In other words lying.

Well, if it's so prevalent, perhaps you could do something no one has been able to do so far and post a link. And, by the way, read the article the link points to before posting it.

It's the responsibility of people who make a claim to provide evidence that it's true, not the responsibility of people who doubt the claim. That's the way debate has worked for centuries. Asking someone to support a claim that he made is not "lying."

Asking you to back up your claims is not lying. And if you refuse to back up your claims, that is evidence that your claims are untrue.

You are the only person here with a history of dishonesty.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/feb/29/joe-biden-trump-coronavirus-hoax-claim.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/trump-coronavirus-hoax-tv-ad-super-pac-priorities-usa-a9428366.html.

"Having been in the crowd to hear Donald Trump dismiss the virus as the Democrats’ “new hoax” three weeks ago, Lexington is still grappling with the president’s denialism." From The Economist.

It would seem to me that there are no grounds for the race-baiting Trump and his China-bashing hangers-on to take China to task for trying to peddle Chinese propaganda online, insomuch as lots of hacks from America and Russia seem have been hired by his team to extol his "pukka" leadership skills, calling Trump a leader who's sui generis.

I think they are right about Trump. To my mind, one would be hard-pressed to think of another good leader behaving like Trump when the American people or even other nations ask for help from the most powerful government on earth. Bungling by Trump and his team, coupled with Trump's pathological lying in this crisis, have weakened America's standing , giving the lie to the notion that only America yearns to protect its citizens while doing its utmost to alleviate human suffering. Trump is truly an oddball in this context; he is not hesitant to cede leadership to either Russia and China.

Even Ronald Reagan wouldn't have done it like this like the piratical Trump, albeit his penchant for cutting taxes and his small government vision. Ronald Reagan would have told Trump that at the heart of the issue is America's role in the world. Why do nations still look up to America and think it's global a leader when America has a president besotted with parochial views or nativist furies?


Trump and his team would be better pondering over this before he drags America toward the abyss of isolationism. Indeed, if America doesn't care about its duty to plump for civil liberties, press freedom- Trump keeps rebuking and lampooning CNN and MSNBC -freedom of assembly, checks and balances, and judicial independence as the global leader, then there is no reason for us to talk about it anymore.

A good leader knows the importance of s showing sympathy and solidarity during a crisis. Trump seems to be acting like an actor who dances around in his room when he finds his name in the tabloids or, well, another showboating news anchor keen on roasting liberals on Fox News, not a leader. That's why he is always tweeting. And it could be argued that Trump appears to think that he is King in America and his charges have to grovel to him.

We need a leader, but the dope in the White House is only a 3rd rate narcissist. Lets thank the Governors of most of the states for pulling out all the stops to prevent all of us from dying.

Democrats don't want a 'leader,' they want a paymaster in chief.

There are certainly interests at play within the contemporary Republican party that I don't support.

It's just that the general principles/values espoused by the Republican party are better than those of the Democrats.

I used to believe in the Democrats until I realized they will never support solutions to social problems that do not generate more spending/growth/taxes.

Self-sufficiency is the most efficient way for many social problems to get solved, yet because people doing things for themselves is traditionally something Republicans/Conservatives espouse, Democrats tend to reject it and mock it as unrealistic as they go on insisting that more money is needed.

As a result of the Democrat focus on using problems to demand more money, the problems multiply and get exaggerated by everyone who makes a business initiative out of the prospect of making money that way.

E.g. climate change and environmental degradation are real serious problems that should be reversed, but reversing them involves doing less economically, not more. Democrats want to increase spending to include more green initiatives, but doing so just injects more money into the larger economy that causes the harm in the first place.

It is a chicken-egg problem where people end up having to work for the harmful corporations because there are no green jobs, but if you fund green jobs, people spend the money on the corporations, which use it to produce more of the environmental/climate harm that are just normal economic habits of the people.
