President Trump at his finest!
President Trump begins by thanking Schumer for his “Democrat public relations letter and incorrect soundbites which are wrong in every way.” He then corrects Schumer’s claim that the president hasn’t adequately utilized the Defense Production Act.
The president reminds Schumer that the Act “has been consistently used by my team and me for the purchase of billions of dollars’ worth of equipment, medical supplies, ventilators, and other related items.” He also explains the obvious — that the threat of invoking the Act spurs companies to produce needed items without being ordered to.
Schumer “should have had New York much better prepared than you did,” Trump chides. He adds that “New York was very late in its fight against the virus.”
Trump is just getting started. “If you spent less time on your ridiculous impeachment hoax. . .and instead focused on helping the people of New York, then New York would not have been so completely unprepared for the ‘invisible enemy.’”
Get a load of the part where he said the federal government is a back up to state governments?? BRA-FREAKING-VO to that, and a hearty AMEN.
Also the rest of it is deliciously snarky and Trumpian.
