California Governor Gavin Newsom praised President Trump’s response to the Coronavirus this week; saying his administration has “followed through on every single thing” to help cruise passengers stranded by the disease.
“We had a private conversation. He said, ‘We’re going to do the right thing and you have my support, all of our support, logistically and otherwise.’ I had a private conversation with him around 430, and he said everything I could have hoped for. We had a very long conversation,” said Newsom.
