Gavin Newsom says he had an 'incredible' relationship with Trump during COVID-19 pandemic
"He would play no politics during COVID with California," Newsom said.
California Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom said that he and former President Donald Trump had an incredible relationship during the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I didn’t have a closed fist," Newsom said during an interview with Sean Hannity Friday. "I had an open hand. We actually had an incredible relationship during COVID. It was incredible."
"He would play no politics during COVID with California," Newsom continued. "Played none whatsoever. It’s a fact. And by the way, I’ve gotten a lot of critique from the left by saying that.”
When Newsom was asked about the recent indictment of the 45th president, Newsom answered that it was "sad."
“And I say that as an American,” he stated.
Newsom's name has been frequently mentioned as a possible future presidential candidate.
The California governor said in an interview with Politico last year that he wouldn't run for president in 2024 and was "all in" for Biden.
