I'm Donald J Trump and I approve this message hello and welcome to another edition of Team Trump Online War Room Weekly, where we take a look at President Trump's great record of success on behalf of the American people and contrast that with the nonsense that comes out of the other side, Joe Biden Democrats and the mainstream news media. I'm Tim Mitchell. I'm the communications director for the Trump 2020 campaign, and we are especially pleased to be joined today in the war room by the Great Lieutenant Governor of the Great State of Florida Lieutenant Governor Jeanette. Lieutenant Governor Thank you very much for being here. Thank you. Tim. Always a pleasure. Well, let's talk about what everyone has been dealing with in this country for the last three months or so, and that's the Corona virus crisis and specifically because you're with us today. let's talk about what's going on in Florida. How is it that you as a state government in Florida alongside the Governor? Ron Desantis, one of the great governors in America. How have you approached the Corona virus? Have you protected your citizenss and what are things look like today? In Florida Well, I think it's important to note that elections have consequences and we're glad that we have Governor DeSantis at the helm here in Florida because he's been able to manage this crisis. understanding the unique challenges that Florida faced, but he didn't in a way that was methodical. It was diligent it was grounded in the data and in public health experts and we did so with a focus on of course, social distancing testing and tracing protecting our elderly. Ensuring that our health care systems and our health care workers, we're also protected and ultimately wanting to make sure that we protected Floridians as best as possible. and so you have done that you have achieved actually a great success in protecting your citizens, especially as compared to other States and now a Florida is also among the leaders not only just in in the health aspect of this, but among the leaders in getting the economy going again. Can you tell me a little bit about that Sure a few weeks ago? the governor on Bay are saying. I step reopening plan, and that plan really was focused on getting Floridian back to work as you can imagine Florida has been as I said at the onset uniquely challenged both from a public health perspective, but also from an economic perspective so under Governor DeSantis plan, we open back up the economy in a safe way and in a gradual way, and we're gonna continue to make those steps. But if you look at the data, we haven't seen what was predicted to be a second way we haven't seen what was. By the media to be a disaster here in Florida, quite the contrary, Governor DeSantis has been leading. he's been reopening the economy getting Floridians back to work and we're confident that we'll be able to get Florida back on the path to prosperity that we were on and we have a lot of really exciting opportunities coming our way and we're eager to continue to work with President Trump to make sure Florida and the rest of the country recovers not just survives but thrives. that's exactly right, President Trump and Governor. Your work as lieutenant governor really showing optimism in the way that States can come out of this and get the economy back on track again and right where it was before the Corona virus artificially interrupted things at this time, I'd like to ask our viewers to remind them that if you'd like to comment or click the thumbs up button while watching this video, please go ahead. throughout the course of this video, we'd like that very much You mentioned the media and how the media predicted doom and gloom in Florida. that is not the way that. Approach things in other States and I would say most notably in New York with Governor Cuomo in New York. Let's take a look at the sort of a media highlight reel here about the difference the the very real and clear difference about how they treated Florida versus how they treated New-york. This was put together by the Washington Free Beacon, but it is very illustrative and Andrew Cuomo has been glorified by media despite policies with respect to nursing homes that caused to a. Tragic that's whereas Ronda Happenstances has instituted pretty successful policy if you look at their numbers. so what's going on here? Ron DeSantis is not doing what he needed to do two weeks ago to protect Florida's seniors. It's been a remarkable show of leadership by Governor Cuomo in recent days. he's providing hope and Governor Ron DeSantis is finally maybe too little too late issuing a stay at home order. Cuomo has been kind of become a kind of acting President Governor Desantis Shouldve absolutely acted a lot quicker, not only for the retired people Mmo everything. Trump isn't honest direct. In the case of Governor DeSantis of Florida, he's going exactly the opposite way from what the experts the people on the front lines indicate ought to be done. Governor Cuomo has become a National leader and not just the leader of New-york. Go. Stay at home order from Governor Ron Desantis. Why bother right? I'm sure Florida will be fine. He is conveying incredible strength in the face of this pandemic act. Like you give a damn I've seen you referred to a little bit recently as the love Gov and I'm wondering if that's bleeding into your demeanor at all. So there at that last clip there the the hard news in action there at the at CNN with the Cuomo brothers interviewing each other that was probably right after they had talked about who their mother likes best either big brother or little brother Real hard hitting news, but we see there the difference between the way the news media treats, Governor DeSantis and your efforts in Florida Lieutenant governor versus how they treated Andrew Cuomo in New York. It boils down to it is so obvious that it's a matter of what letter comes after your name. What if you're an R, you're a bad guy. If you're a D, you're a hero and I. Let's not lose sight of the fact that you as lieutenant Governor of Florida and also Governor Ron Desantis have been supporters and allies of President Trump and in the media's eyes once you've done that you're always going to be a bad guy. isn't it just as simple as that absolutely and that clip that you showed it really is sickening. You know we're we're used to the liberal media being a holy owned subsidiary of the DNC but they don't get to report things that are inaccurate. They don't get just when it's. I don't get the quote unquote claim that science is important unless it's it doesn't tell their story. so I think the numbers really are the ones that are showing the truth about the situation. How Governor DeSantis made great decisions that protective Floridians save lives, whereas Governor Cuomo, who has been hailed as a hero of this pandemic, really, if you look at the disaster that occurred under his leadership, it costs New Yorkers their lives their livelihood, and I think that when the A settle there'll be no other way to explain this pandemic and and basically showing that governors Sanchez made the right decisions. Governor Cuomo not so much. Yeah, and you can see that the Democrats are actually panicked by the they see the success that's happening in Florida and other States that are led by solid Republican governors and as the President has said it's time to get the economy back open again. He's followed the science all the way through and what Democrats are worried about there was a big political story. Week Democrats are scared to death that the economy is going to turn around they're actually fearful of Americans benefiting from the economy rebounding and so once again we see for Democrats. Bad news for America is good news for Democrats. What a sad pathetic position to be in and really is something that you I mean you used to be the as Americans we would you know I don't know root for America, but that's really. That Joe Biden and the Democrats find themselves in and neither is the media in that position as a matter of fact, and let's take a look at another clip here. This is again Governor DeSantis in the wake of a story where you had a a health worker in Florida who claimed that she was removed from her from her job because she refused to alter or misused data. and of course that turned out not to be true as we want to know as we as we know now and once again, the media ran with a false story because it was damaging to a Republican governor and ally of the President's in it turned out at the end to be. Let's take a look at Governor DeSantis. Our data is available. Our data is transparent. In fact Act Burkes has multiple times about how Florida has the absolute best data so any insinuation otherwise is just typical partisan narrative trying to be spun and part of the reason is that because you got a lot of people in your profession who wax poetically for weeks and weeks about our Florida was gonna be just like New-york wait two weeks for. Be next, just like Italy wait two weeks Well. Hell we're eight weeks away from that, and it hasn't happened. not only do we have a lower death rate while we have way lower than generally, we have a lower death rate than the Estella corder DC everyone up there, we have a low rate death rate in the Midwest, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, but even in our region, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, has the lower death rate and I was the number one landing spot from tens of thousands of people leaving the number one hot zone in the world to come to my state. We've succeeded and I think that people just don't want to recognize it because it challenges their narrative. It challenges their assumption so they gotta try to find a Boogie man. Maybe it's that there's a black helicopter circling the Department of Health. If you believe that I got a bridge in Brooklyn, I'd like to sell you so for the media salivating over a negative story, they thought they had about a Republican administration in a state that supports the President. The President wanted it last time, But really the truth is in the story that the media really couldn't bare to tell is Florida's great. Right indeed, you're absolutely correct so moving on the reopening of the common. What are the state of Florida has been has been key President Trump has been working on two main objectives this entire time. one is protecting the health and safety of the American people and the other is safeguarding the economy. We know that it is the American economy just was not built to lie dormant for three months, six months, nine months or a year at a time, some people are even talking about 18 months. keeping. Shut down when, in fact, if you have a long-term economic downturn that comes with it's own health problems on top of what the Corona virus would bring and so following the science opening up, let's let's let's hammer this home a little bit more because the President has been insistent on trying to get the economy back going again and Florida has been a leader in in in that, What has been the approach well, I started Governor DeSantis unveiled his safe. Step by step plan, It's a plan that will bring our businesses back online. We'll get floridians back to work following the guidance that the White House issued working very closely with President Trump with Vice President Pence with Doctor Burks all of the experts what we see and what we continue to monitor very closely as we as we unveil our plan as we continue to open, we bring businesses online. we've increased the capacity which businesses can operate really. Again, Floridians to get back to work business owners to open up their doors. What we see is all of the data. Everything is stable the rate of positive cases is stable. What we see is a continuation of counties to be able to open up. We do not see additional people being a hospitalized. We do not see additional people on ventilators. In fact, we have fewer people and I see you on ventilators every day we look at that data so all of that information again ground. Rooted in science and the key public health measures that we understand are what are gonna give us the the foundation for decision making, and so Governor DeSantis is eager to get to phase two. I would suspect in the next couple of days. we'll hear more about what the next steps are, but our goal is really to get Florida back to work, making sure that Florida recognizes that President Trump has been a tremendous leader during this pandemic and he's the only person that. This country back on to that path to prosperity. Yeah, that's I mean that's clear that the the the American economy had reached unprecedented Heights under President Trump's leadership and under his policies, and there's no question that it was artificially interrupted by the Corona virus and he built the economy up to those unprecedented Heights once and he is clearly the candidate who would do that again and he has been safeguarding the economy with policies very strong policies to protect workers, including the paycheck. Program, which is something that he has been championing and it's been very successful run out of the small business administration and there are lots and lots and lots of businesses all over Florida who have benefited from that, And that means workers won't miss paychecks even if those businesses weren't open for open and taking customers for a period of time, people weren't missing paychecks through that program, and here is some local TV coverage from Florida about one particular business. This is just but one of many. Good stories that we've heard through the paycheck protection program under the Trump administration. We told you about the Sanford restaurant that had to lay off dozens of workers because of the pandemic will now thanks to the paycheck protection program. Heller B's Willow Tree Cafe Downtown Sanford is now able to hire back some of those workers. Here's Fox 20 - five 's Amanda Mckenzie in March the owner Ofer Box Willow Tree Cafe in Sanford. This is the dining room, which is a little bit empty right now had to let go of half of his staff about. We were crying. Took a major hit the Haro worrying that his restaurant wouldn't survive past May and more people would be put out of work now fast forward six weeks later, tables can once again be filled and holler back finally heard back from the government on their application for the payment protection program cuz I was running out of cash flow. so with this $300000 loan again, you know just on payroll and that's all it's designed to pay so at 40 -. That gives us another six weeks at least so now we have good until July with that money, he has been able to rehire 20 employees like Nicholas Kelli, who was furlow for 30 days and then all of a sudden losing my job and then thinking to myself. I have no idea what I'm gonna do not to file for unemployment. gotta do the regular things that everyone does support the brutal Krista Tule works as a Baker decorating cakes and pastries. He's only back part time for now. But it's hoping business will pick up when people once again hear the sound of live music. We're thrilled to be back getting back into the swing of things while focusing on staying healthy and keeping some distance in Sanford. Amanda Mckenzie Fox, 30 - Five news there you see President Trump's policies in action, helping people get going again helping businesses keep workers on the payroll and we we also have seen that Joe Biden is against reopening the economy and and we see lots of Democrat governors across the country. Dragging their feet. Reopening the economy without even bothering to look at a Florida and Florida can be a role model for how you can do that. I think you know politically speaking President has speculated that it is in the interests of Democrats to continue to inflict as much harm on the economy as possible because it will benefit them in their view. come election time so tell me what the truth is exactly because you in Florida, Lieutenant Governor Nunez and with Governor DeSantis you've actually been an active. Partner with President Trump in Washington and using such programs like the paycheck Protection program, how's the partnership actually been contrary to what Joe Biden, the Democrats and the media would have you to have to have to say well, first of all, let's let's really focus on what President Trump has done not just for Florida, but for the entirety of our country, he has worked with governors across this country. He has provided them with much needed relief both financial as well as important. Public health and that they have such as PE and so what we've seen here in Florida specifically is President Trump has been phenomenal working with our governor working with our state to make sure that our health care workers have the equipment that they desperately needed, making sure that we had field hospitals set up in the event that we had a surge which by the way based on Governor DeSantis decisions, we never even approached anything near what the media was purporting in terms. Visualizations so there really was not a request that Florida had which saved obviously a tremendous lie to save lives and save opportunities for our health care workers to be protected And so Governor DeSantis working with President Trump really that partnership has been a benefit and a blessing to Florida. Yeah. It's a really good news story that frankly, we wish the news media would cover but let's let's talk about the upcoming election and we now know that Joe Biden. Going to be President Trump's opponent and there's a lot of things that the people talk about when it comes to these two men squaring off and one of them that we like to highlight is the enthusiasm gap between the people who support President Trump and those who support Joe Biden. We like to say that President Trump's supporters would run through a brick Wall to vote for Donald Trump but ain't nobody running through a brick Wall for Joe Biden and I think we see an example of that enthusiasm on display all across Florida up and down the Coast. Of the Atlantic Coast and the Gulf Coast all over the place with this spontaneous impromptu Trump vote parades, let's take a look at some coverage of this and I'd like to get your thoughts on that. Here's some tape. Speaking of travel. It was a busy day on the water 500 boats sailed from the Cape Coral midpoint Bridge today you're looking at visuals from a boat parade that actually honored the Trump 2020 campaign, and it was also to support veterans during this Memorial Day weekend and these boats road from. All the way to the Sanibel Lighthouse, it's Memorial Day all the ones that have lost their lives and put it on the line for me, you know so it's it's just I'm feeling like I'm privileged. There was a similar boat parade at the same time in Collier County, both started at the Naples City Dock and went to the Jolly Bridge on Marco Island. That parade was in support of President Trump as well. Take a look at this President Trump is tweeting his appreciation for a parade in his honor early today, a few dozen votes. Just days after boats were reopened in Palm Beach County, the parade took place near his mar-a-lago resort in Palm Beach, Supporters', waved flags and signs praising the President Trump taking to Twitter to thank his supporters. He says he promises to quote never let you down. Is. Those are just some incredible images, especially that last shot all those boats out there and all those those boaters and Florida voters voter voters. I guess you could call them and the enthusiasm they showing for President Trump and I guess we must have missed all of the Joe Biden boat parades and all hold on no. no now. I'm being told that we didn't miss them. They're just weren't any so seeing seeing all that stuff is there any doubt in your mind that President Trump is going to carry Florida again this November. Absolutely. If you saw all of the enthusiasm in those parades everywhere from the Florida keys to our Emerald Coast, you would know that not only is he gonna carry Florida. He's gonna carry it big and I tell you a floridians are desperate for the kind of leadership that President Trump has provided these past several years but really looking forward in the context of this pandemic, they're looking forward to again being able to not just survive, but thrive go back to the path to prosperity that we were on. Sure that they can have their businesses open and unfettered making sure our economy is humming again. and so I'll tell you in particular for floridians here we value we value Liberty, We value freedom and as chair of the Hispanics for Trump, Latinos for Trump, that is something that I'm very proud of and I will tell you something for Hispanics from every corner of this hemisphere. they recognize that President Trump is not only willing to stand up and fight for freedom and demo. And democracy, but he is also willing to stand up to despots and dictators because he said it time and again and nothing rings true than when he says that America will never be a socialist country and I can tell you I haven't heard that from basement Biden at all, so we are very proud to support President Trump and I think that we're gonna be celebrating very soon. Yeah and I think you bring up an excellent point talking about Dess and dictators and we heard Joe Biden just a couple of weeks ago, tell a Miami TV station that he would return to the Obama policy of appeasing Cuba, which, of course. The dictatorship there, and it also makes it easier for Cuba to assist in propping up Maduro in Venezuela so very important key differences between President Trump and his strong stands for freedom and against socialist dictators versus Joe Biden who would just sort of let them go about their business and it actually make life easier on them by reengaging with them and filling their coffers and their government and making them stronger so that that I'm afraid is where we will have to leave it.
