For Democrats, there is one important rule when it comes to high profile events: never let a good crisis go to waste. Democrats didn’t even hide it when they held up the third phase of the coronavirus relief bill last week for several days because it didn’t include items from their left wing wishlist, before inevitably giving up. California Governor Gavin Newsom expanded on the Democrats’ thinking.
He was asked if the coronavirus epidemic is a chance, unlike in normal times, to pass and implement liberal ideas. This was his answer.
“There is opportunity for reimagining a [more] progressive era as it [relates] to capitalism.” said the Democratic Governor. “So yes, absolutely we see this as an opportunity to reshape the way we do business and how we govern.”
While President Trump, Vice President Pence, and the rest of the administration is busy trying to implement every measure to save American lives, businesses, and jobs, some Democrats like Governor Newsom are trying to think of ways to take advantage of the crisis to implement liberal agenda.
Due to the urgency and intensity of the situation, President Trump is having to work with members on both sides of the aisle accomplish tasks and get the aid that is so direly needed to each and every state. But it appears that, like usual, not everyone is being an honest actor at the negotiation table.
While everyone else is dealing with a pandemic of the kind that hasn’t been seen in over a hundred years, former President Barack Obama was busy tweeting Tuesday about how the Trump administration is not taking climate change seriously enough. Clearly, the liberal agenda never takes a backseat, even during a national crisis.
During the entire coronavirus crisis, President Trump has been a leader for ALL Americans. His steadfast leadership has kept the country afloat, and he and Pence are working around the clock to protect as many Americans as possible.
