Andrew Cuomo Thanks President Trump for ‘Cooperation,’ Says President Is Using DPA ‘Well’

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo once again just blew the Democrat and media narrative about President Trump’s handling of the Cornoavirus crisis.

During his daily Coronavirus press conference Cuomo pointedly thanked the President for both his cooperation and praised his use of the Defense Production Act.

“I spoke with President Trump several times, I spoke with him this morning,” Cuomo said. “I’ve spoken to people in the White House who are handling these operations, I’ve spoken with the Vice President. I’ve spoken with Jared Kushner, who is a New Yorker, he knows New York and he is working in the White House, and he has been extraordinarily helpful on all of these situations.”

“What we’re working on is a common challenge. No one has these ventilators and no one ever anticipated a situation where you would need this number of ventilators to deal with a public health emergency.”

Cuomo added “So we have purchased everything that can be purchased. We’re now in a situation that we’re trying to accelerate production of these ventilators, and a ventilator is a complicated piece of equipment.”

“The President and his team I think are using the DPA well, because it’s basically a leverage tool when you are dealing with private companies, right? We need your help, we can demand your help, or you could agree to help and we need you to step up and increase production.”

Watch the amazing moment when a Democrat governor praises President Trump, the Vice-President and Jared Kushner:

Partial transcript:

“I spoke with President Trump several times, I spoke with him this morning. I’ve spoken to people in the White House who are handling these operations, I’ve spoken with the Vice President.

I’ve spoken with Jared Kushner, who is a New Yorker, he knows New York and he is working in the White House, and he has been extraordinarily helpful on all of these situations.

What we’re working on is a common challenge. No one has these ventilators and no one ever anticipated a situation where you would need this number of ventilators to deal with a public health emergency.

So we have purchased everything that can be purchased. We’re now in a situation that we’re trying to accelerate production of these ventilators, and a ventilator is a complicated piece of equipment.

The President and his team I think are using the DPA well, because it’s basically a leverage tool when you are dealing with private companies, right?

We need your help, we can demand your help, or you could agree to help and we need you to step up and increase production.

Even with that, there is a ramp-up time for a company to put together the supply chain, put together the workforce, and get these things up and running.

So, Ford and General Motors will help.

The problem is our timeline is so short, we’re looking at an apex 21 days, in that range, to get ventilators and these business consortiums put together, supply chain, design team ramped up and delivered. 30,000 ventilators is an extraordinarily difficult task.

And it is something that our team is working on with the White House team and I want to thank the President for his cooperation, and his team for their cooperation.

We’re getting very creative, we’re talking to countries around the world, as well as new companies that could do production.”
