President Donald Trump and Governor Larry Hogan Exchange Barbs on Twitter
President Donald Trump tweeted a report from Breitbart News that states Maryland Governor Larry Hogan paid for flawed COVID tests from South Korea back in April. In the tweet, he referred to the Maryland governor as a RINO, which stands for “Republican in name only.”
Governor Hogan quoted the President’s tweet and responded with
“If you had done your job, America’s governors wouldn’t have been forced to fend for themselves to find tests in the middle of a pandemic, as we successfully did in Maryland.
Stop golfing and concede.”
On Friday, the Washington Post reported that the first batch of COVID tests Hogan purchased from South Korea for $9.46 million were flawed and unused. In the report the Post also claimed that “the Hogan administration quietly paid the same South Korean company $2.5 million for 500,000 replacement tests.”
