Republican Gov. Larry Hogan said “it’s not quite accurate” to claim states in ‘good shape’ amid coronavirus pandemic

Republican Gov. Larry Hogan of Maryland pushed back abreast President Donald Trump’s declaration at his latest announcement that states are in “good shape” with ventilators and protective equipment.

The governor of Maryland confessed that states are better off than they were a few weeks ago, but

“I think to say that everybody’s completely happy and that we have everything we need, it’s not quite accurate,” he said during a television interview

“Everybody still has tremendous needs on personal protective equipment and ventilators and all of these things that you keep hearing about,” he added.

“Everybody’s fighting to find these things all over… all over the nation and all over the world.”

As chairman of the National Governors Association, Hogan, along with the vice-chair, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, called on the Trump administration Saturday to give $500 billion to states’ indirect assistance as they respond to the coronavirus pandemic.
