Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) heaped praise on President Donald Trump for his response to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic that she called “incredible and the right response in this critical time.”
She made the declaration on Twitter in response to news that the Trump administration was suspending mortgage foreclosures, demanding cash payments to Americans, and forcing firms to produce medical supplies under the Defense Production Act.
Politics aside, this is incredible and the right response in this critical time. 👏🏽 https://t.co/MUzGkAxNaO

Trump has responded with emergency measures that some conservatives have criticized as being socialist, intervening in the marketplace to help Americans while the economy is at a standstill. The administration hopes to return to economic normalcy as soon as possible.
“We all know it’s going to be a horrible second quarter, but [the President] feels we’ll get through this and the market will snap back,” the senior administration official said to CNN. “Doesn’t matter the time of day he gets out and addresses the country. The market’s gonna do what the market’s gonna do.”
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, usually a hardcore critic of the Trump administration, had to tip his cap to the President for his handling of the crisis.
“His team is on it. They’ve been responsive. … I want to say thank you,” Cuomo told reporters on Tuesday.
President Trump is taking measures to combat a crisis that transcends party lines, believing he is a “wartime president” out to defeat an “invisible enemy.”
“Every generation of Americans has been called to make shared sacrifices for the good of the nation,” Trump said at a recent White House briefing.
“Now it’s our time,” Trump added, referencing how Americans came together to protect freedom during World War II. “We must sacrifice together, because we are all in this together, and we will come through together.”
Trump signed a coronavirus pandemic aid package on Wednesday evening that expands benefits for those who have been economically harmed by the crisis. He is working with House and Senate leaders to secure more aid for the American people in the days to come.
“We are crafting bold and significant legislation to meet this crisis head-on and strengthen our nation,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
“My message is to all Americans, but to those Americans going through a lot: We love them, we’re with them, and we will not let them down. Thank you all very much,” Trump said on Wednesday.
Trump is showing the kind of leader that he is under the pressure of the coronavirus pandemic, and even liberals are being forced to give him credit as a result.

Rhode Island Police Targeting New Yorkers for Mandatory Coronavirus Quarantine
State police will scrutinize New Yorkers arriving in the state.
Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo signed an executive order on Thursday that establishes strict mandatory quarantine rules for those arriving in the state from nearby New York.
“Anyone coming to Rhode Island in any way from New York must be quarantined,” said the governor at a press conference. “By order. Will be enforced. Enforceable by law.”
The executive order will require New Yorkers to identify themselves to state law enforcement or National Guard personnel and place themselves into self-quarantine for 14 days upon their arrival. The Empire State is the national ground zero for the Chinese coronavirus epidemic, and Rhode Island’s government appears highly skeptical of New Yorkers fleeing from the state.
Governor Raimondo admitted that the executive order is an “an extreme measure,” but justified its implication on the basis of the coronavirus epidemic’s severity. “I don’t want anyone to panic. If anything, Rhode Islanders should breathe a sigh of relief. We are doing things to keep ourselves safe.”
National Guard personnel are being posted at the state’s major airports, and state police are stopping passenger traffic that enters from New York. Law enforcement will follow up with New York residents that enter the state to ensure that they’re complying the law.
Raimondo established real penalties for New Yorkers that violate the self-quarantine rule, subjecting them to a maximum penalty of a $500 fine or even 90 days in prison.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo expressed his disapproval of the move, claiming it unfairly singles out New Yorkers in a time when Americans should be uniting to combat the coronavirus epidemic.
“I don’t like it socially or culturally. I don’t like what it says about us as one state, one family. Also, I don’t believe it’s medically justified.
Florida, Maryland, Texas and California have enacted similar public health measures that scrutinize New Yorkers, but Rhode Island’s appears to be the most forceful to enter effect thus far.
