Amid coronavirus outbreak crisis, Trump orders Pence to ignore governors who don’t worship him

Trump to Pence: “Don’t call the governor of Washington”

From CNBC:

“President Donald Trump said Friday that he instructed Vice President Mike Pence not to reach out to governors who aren’t ‘appreciative’ of his administration’s efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus in their states. ‘If they don’t treat you right, I don’t call,’ Trump said of those state leaders. …

“The president mentioned Washington Gov. Jay Inslee and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, both Democrats who have been critical of the White House’s actions to combat the deadly pandemic.

“Trump said that Pence ‘calls all the governors. And I tell him, I’m a different type of person, and I say, ’Mike, don’t call the governor of Washington. … Don’t call the woman in Michigan. It doesn’t make any difference what happens,’ Trump added.”
