In a tweet, the unhinged president stated, “We’ve achieved a GREAT job on Covid response, making all Governors look good, some incredible (and that’s OK), however the Lamestream Media doesn’t wish to go along with that narrative, and the Do Nothing Dems speaking level is to say solely unhealthy about ‘Trump’.”

All 50 governors have increased coronavirus rankings than Trump
As The Hill reported on the finish of final month, “A sweeping survey of greater than 22,000 voters in all 50 states discovered that almost all say their governor is doing a greater job than President Trump in dealing with the coronavirus outbreak.”
In each state within the union, residents approve of their very own governor’s dealing with of the COVID disaster (outlined as “approve” or “strongly approve”) extra extremely than they price that of President Trump. The common hole throughout the 50 states was 22 proportion factors (66 for governors in comparison with 44% for Trump). That stated, the gaps between the governor and the president fluctuate extensively, starting from round 2 proportion factors in Oklahoma to a cavernous hole approaching or exceeding 40 factors in a number of solidly Democratic states, like Rhode Island and California.
General, public approval of the president’s coronavirus response stands at lower than 43 %, whereas over 53 % disapprove, according to RealClearPolitics.
Maybe if Trump, like most governors in each events, spent his time getting a deal with of this virus – one thing of which he still seems incapable – as an alternative of shouting “me me me me” on Twitter, his rankings could be increased than they’re.
However given what we learn about Donald Trump, that appears unlikely to occur anytime quickly.
