Trump Attacks IL Gov Over Virus Supplies Complaint

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Sunday blasted Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker and media outlets after the Democrat said the federal government had left state governments to compete for resources to respond to the coronavirus pandemic.

The tweet came after Pritzker said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that states were overpaying for personal protective equipment. Pritzker told the network that rather than a competition, it “should have been a coordinated effort by the federal government.”

Trump has repeatedly hit back at Democratic governors who have criticized the federal response to the virus, including Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D), whom he called “the failing Michigan governor” last week.
