On Wednesday, while speaking on Fox News’ morning show “Fox & Friends,” Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway confirmed that New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham thanked President Trump and the COVID-19 task force, and gave credit for the President’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Conway said Lujan Grisham and other Democrat leaders were “thanking the president, the vice president of the task force, and then making specific asks. There are no politics for them on that phone call. They’re saying thank you so much for the federal government’s response.”
The news comes after President Trump announced that New Mexico would receive its request for a U.S. Army field hospital in Albuquerque, complete with 284 beds to help with the state’s response to the coronavirus.
Shortly after taking office, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham brutally criticized President Trump, even going so far as to run through a wall to protest the President’s plan to build a southern border wall to prevent illegal activity and immigration.
