Kayleigh McEnany, National Press Secretary for the Donald J. Trump 2020 reelection campaign, emphasized that President Trump has been “undeterred and resolute” in his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, during Thursday’s episode of “The Sara Carter Show” podcast.
“The president is undeterred and resolute in acting and leading. Those two hour press briefings are a phenomenal opportunity for the American people to see our President in action. I mean that is exactly what he’s doing,” she told host Sara A. Carter.
“He acted early”
The President acted as early as Jan. 6, to limit travel to China, and, on Jan. 31, he enacted a full-scale travel ban on China.
At the time, Democrats, like the President’s opponent former Vice President Joe Biden, argued that the restrictions on China were racist, McEnany explained.
“He acted early. Democrats are now on this new talking point saying you know why didn’t he act early while in fact he did on January 6th. He issued a travel advisory against China January 30 for those travel restrictions the same ones that Joe Biden called xenophobic,” McEnany said.
“The Democrats were focused on impeachment”
While the President was working to ensure the health and safety of the American people, the Democrats were undeterred in pushing articles of impeachment against the President, McEnany argued.
“The first week of February, you had Democrats voting still on this last impeachment vote to then acquit the President, thanks to Republicans standing up for the truth,” McEnany said.
The Senate vote to acquit Trump was, in fact, on Feb. 5.
McEnany added, “But, you know they were focused on impeachment, this President was acting. Joe Biden was calling him xenophobic and fear mongering and hysterical, but President Trump was taking action and that early action saved a lot of lives. You know, Dr. Anthony Fauci praised that early action for having abated the crisis. So I’m proud to have a president like him and an American people that recognize his truth.”
