New Reports Reveal Trump Purposely Downplayed COVID-19 Threat, Is Daines Still “Grateful For His Leadership”?
Helena, MT – New reports reveal that President Trump repeatedly downplayed the threat of the coronavirus despite knowing the virus was extremely dangerous, and “more deadly than even your strenuous flus.” Trump himself explicitly said he “wanted to always play it down.” These revelations come after Senator Steve Daines has offered effusive praise for Trump’s inadequate response to this crisis. When asked to assess Trump’s handling of the pandemic, Daines said “I applaud the president” and he was “grateful for his leadership.” 

Throughout this crisis, Daines has been more concerned with remaining in the good graces of Republican Party leaders than he has with doing right by Montanans. Daines has given “obsequious, unqualified allegiance” and “cringe-inducing expressions of gratitude” for President Trump even as his response to the pandemic has made the crisis worse. 

When push comes to shove, Daines will look out for his party bosses and political self-interest at all costs.

“These alarming revelations show the extent to which President Trump downplayed this dire threat to the American public, and Steve Daines has been marching in lockstep the entire way,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “Montanans deserve an independent leader who will always do right by them, not follow blindly behind party bosses to benefit his own standing.”
