One fascinating aspect of the Coronavirus crisis, has been seeing so many Democrat governors praise Trump for the way he has handled it and helped their states.
Over the last month, Trump has gotten praise from Gavin Newsom in California, Andrew Cuomo in New York, and Phil Murphy in New Jersey.
Now Ned Lamont, the Democrat governor of Connecticut is doing it too.
Connecticut Governor Praises Trump’s Reopening Guidelines
Democratic Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont is praising Trump and the coronavirus task force for developing guidelines on how states can being safely reopening amid the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic.
“Their guidance has been helpful, but then they leave it up to the governors which I think is appropriate,” said Gov. Lamont.
Earlier this month, the White House released guidelines for governors to consider as they begin reopening their states. The guidelines set forth a phased reopening that empowers state and local governments as they begin to loosen restrictions put in place to slow the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus. The guidelines suggest a 14-day period of observance as states move through different phases of lifting stay-at-home orders and other restrictions.
Gov. Lamont is joining a growing chorus of unlikely governors who have praised President Trump’s response to the coronavirus outbreak.

In Connecticut, they are flattening the curve.
The Hartford Courant reports:
Daily coronavirus updates: COVID-19 hospitalizations fall for third day straight day, but deaths remain high; some state parks reach capacity
The number of people currently hospitalized in Connecticut with COVID-19 fell for the third day in a row Saturday, the state health department reported, even as 98 more people died of the coronavirus.
There were 1,810 COVID-19 patients hospitalized across the state, down 67 from the day before, Gov. Ned Lamont said Saturday. Connecticut’s death toll rose to 1,862 people, more than the number of patients who were hospitalized with the coronavirus on Saturday.
The state also reported 3,564 more people were tested for the virus, a figure Lamont said “will be significantly increasing” in the coming days and weeks as one component of the state’s developing plan to lift restrictions and reopen the economy.
Hopefully, we are past the worst of this.
