President Donald Trump has voiced his doubts about providing help to a particular category of U.S. citizens. Namely, the ones led by Democrats.
In his April 27th tweet, Trump wondered why the U.S. taxpayers have to pay for the bailout aid during the COVID-19 pandemic to the Democrat states which he called “poorly run”
This was one of the outcomes of Trump’s meeting with The National Governors Association whose members are seeking a $500 billion aid to states to cover the losses caused by the COVID-19 lockdown. The meeting was held via a videoconference call.
The President recently had disagreements with several Democrat governors. On April 15th Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker told CNN that he has “given up” on the pandemic help from Trump administration:
“We have gotten very little help from the federal government. It’s fine. I’ve given up on any promises that have been made. I hope something will get delivered from the federal government, but I don’t expect it anymore.”
Another Democrat, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, commented on Trump’s Monday tweet, saying that the state of New York receives less money from the federal government than it sends.
