Fried Trashes Trump’s Coronavirus Response


Ahead of President Trump’s (R) speech at the Republican National Convention, Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried (D), has released a statement slamming President Trump for his response to the COVID-19 crisis.

Writing in a FOX Business Op-ed, Commissioner Fried commented that “if Trump wants to talk about the economy, that’s fine – let’s start that conversation with the economy in America’s largest swing state, Florida.” She argues that that’s “not a conservation he’ll want to have.”

The highest-ranking Democrat in the sunshine state argued that “President Trump foolishly rushed to reopen America’s economy while the virus threatened to spiral out of control – and some governors like DeSantis willingly followed his lead.”

This has led Democrats in Florida to rally a movement calling for a mask mandate, and some Democrats have even expressed that the country should enact another shutdown in order to combat the rising number of coronavirus cases.

In drawing a distinction between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden (D), Fried noted that “Biden has a plan that will help struggling small businesses and working families build back better.” She added that “Biden’s plan extends unemployment benefits, provides relief to small businesses, and invests in American manufacturing, instead of sending jobs offshore.”

In reference to Trump’s speech tonight, Fried concluded that “when President Trump talks about the economy at his convention, Americans should remember something: he’ll neither make, nor keep, America great for you.”
