Trump calls Northam “crazy governor,” Northam responds on Twitter
“We’re going after Virginia, with your crazy governor, we’re going after Virginia. They want to take your Second Amendment away. You know that, right? You’ll have nobody guarding your potatoes.”
President Donald Trump following a speaker from Virginia at a White House press conference Tuesday on food safety and relief for farmers making pointed comments toward Democratic Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and his strict stance on gun reform.
The quip got a response from Northam on Twitter who wrote that he grew up on a farm and Virginia’s potatoes are fine. Northam also said that as the only medical doctor among America’s governors he would suggest Trump stop taking hydroxychloroquine.
The president said he been taking the drug that is used to treat malaria but has not been approved by the FDA for COVID-19.
