Trump Threatens to Withhold Federal Funds From Pennsylvania Because the Governor Doesn’t Like Him
Apparently, Donald Trump is the only person in America who hasn’t noticed that we’ve had a dramatic rise in COVID cases in the last two weeks (which ironically corresponds to when he started really rallying again). There are some people in the government determined to do something about this and try to decrease the number of people exposed and infected. One of those people is Pennsylvania Governor Democrat Paul Wolf.
Trump told the crowd assembled in Allentown that Wolf made it almost impossible to find a spot to have the rally and told the people at the rally that they found a site for the rally “only a couple hours ago.” But that wasn’t enough for Trump, he had to go further because that’s what he does, he tries to inflict pain in people that “hurt” him. According to Mediaite:
So Tom Wolf, next time give us a little notice, Governor. And I’ll remember it, Tom. I’m going to remember it, Tom. ‘Hello, Mr. President, this is Governor Wolf, I need help. I need help.’ You know what? These people are bad. We go out of our way regardless Republican, Democrat, when they have a problem. But he shut us out and he tried shutting us out of two other venues.
Boy, that sounds a lot like a hurricane is about to hit and federal help is needed “but I need a favor, though. I need you to investigate a guy who’s giving me problems …” Remember Adam Schiff giving that exact example?
That sounds like a president who is going to govern blue states differently than red states. And we hate to say this, but if there is a president that governs states separately, what’s the point of them all being under the same flag? Under the same country? We just ask because …
"I'll remember it, Tom… 'hello Mr President, this is Gov. Wolf, I need help'" — Trump suggests he won't provide help to PA if Gov. Tom Wolf calls & asks for it because he's mad that Wolf is taking basic public health precautions to slow the spread of coronavirus. #QuidProQuo pic.twitter.com/FVsqnIBuHx
