New Jersey’s Democrat Governor Phil Murphy is once again praising Trump’s actions in the Coronavirus crisis.
He made the comments during an appearance on FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace.
Democrats are going to have a hard time countering this narrative in November.
From FOX News:
NJ Gov. Murphy reopens parks but maintains business restrictions: ‘We’re not out of this yet’
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy has reopened parks and golf courses in his state, but warned that it is too soon to go further, as some other states have done in recent days.
New Jersey — the most densely populated state in the nation — has seen the second-highest number of coronavirus cases and deaths in the U.S., but that has not stopped protesters from calling for freedom to return to normal life. Murphy recognized their concerns, but criticized their methods in a “Fox News Sunday” interview.
“I don’t begrudge their right to protest,” Murphy said. “I wish they would do it virtually and safely. My biggest issue is they were congregating without face masks…
New Jersey recently had its highest number of deaths in one day, but Murphy noted that those were cases that were reported weeks ago. The governor said that new hospitalizations and ventilator usages are down and the testing curve is flattening.
Murphy also discussed how helpful President Trump has been in providing aid to New Jersey. When the two addressed reporters at the White House last week, Murphy thanked Trump for coming through for the Garden State.

Trump delivered because he knows this is about far more than politics. It’s about the lives of the American people.
Governor Phil Murphy: President @realDonaldTrump "knows New Jersey. He and his team have been extremely responsive in our hour of need, whether it was ventilators, as you rightfully point out, we’ve got a huge amount of supplies to test.” https://t.co/o70crG6q93

Why can’t House Democrats understand this and get to work?
