Gov Newsome: I'd Be Lying If I Said Trump He Hasn't Been Responsive [VIDEO]


Gavin Newsome on CNN with Jake Tapper

Governor Gavin Newsome (D) "Let me just be candid with you. I’d be lying to you to say that he hasn’t been responsive to our needs. He has. And so as a question, as a sort of an offer of objectivity, I have to acknowledge that publicly. And the fact is every time I’ve called the president, he’s quickly gotten on the line. And when we asked to get support for that Mercy ship in southern California, he was able to direct that in real time. We’ve got 2000 of these field medical sites that are up, almost all operational now in the state because of his support. Those are the facts"

Watch Gov Newsome on CNN. It is clear Jake Tapper is teeing him up here, either wanting him to criticize Trump, or just pull back on the praise. Newsome won't have it.
