Georgia Democrats Agree With Trump After The President Disagrees with Governor Kemp Reopening The Peach State
Georgia Was Trending in the Twitterverse
Georgia became the center of the Twitterverse Wednesday night after President Trump reversed course and said he doesn't support Georgia Governor Brian Kemp's decision to reopen some Georgia businesses Friday.
This left many dazed and confused, but probably no one more so than Kemp himself.
One of the first Georgians to Tweet a response to Trump's comments was the governor:
"I appreciate his bold leadership and insight during these difficult times and the framework provided by the White House to safely move states forward.
"Our next measured step is driven by data and guided by state public health officials. We will continue with this approach to protect the lives — and livelihoods — of all Georgians."
What a predicament Kemp found himself in! The president and leader of his party just publicly disagreed with his decision.
You know Kemp wanted to say more in his Tweets, but of course, he couldn’t because he's going to need Trump's support for his reelection campaign.
The governor, no doubt, felt like the rug was pulled out from under him with Trump's comments considering he's been publicly saying to reopen and "liberate" states.
The POTUS concluded his remarks by saying he disagreed with Kemp but thinks governors should make their own decisions for their states.
While Kemp had a bad night, Georgia Democrat Twitter must've felt even worse because Trump really put them in a difficult situation.
For them to disagree with Kemp means they would basically be agreeing with Trump, and that has to be a tough pill for them to swallow.
However, it seems many Georgia Democrats have agreed with the president, including state leaders.
"We agree with the president...the president said exactly what we said on Tuesday – it's too much, too soon. It's too fast. We need a gradual reopening," said Bob Trammell, leader of the Georgia House Democrats.
You know we are living in strange times when Democrats are publicly agreeing with Donald Trump.
What a heck of a year 2020 has been, and it's only April!
