Trump blasts “Democrat run states” he says are “ruining the lives of so many people”

Saturday, President Trump tweeted “The lockdowns in Democrat run states are absolutely ruining the lives of so many people – Far more than the damage that would be caused by the China Virus.”

He added “cases in California have risen despite the lockdown, yet Florida & others are open & doing well. Common sense please!”

California Governor Gavin Newsom tweeted earlier this week:

#COVID19 UPDATE:

– ICU capacity statewide has dropped to 1.1%

– Number of COVID+ ICU patients has doubled in 3 weeks

– Hospitalizations are up 61%

– 7-day average positivity rate is 12.6%(a slight decline)

Don’t take your health for granted. Wear a mask. Stay home. Be safe.
