The President and CEO of Goya Foods on Friday said that locking down the U.S. economy was the worst possible response to the coronavirus pandemic, in an interview with “Fox & Friends,” accusing those on the political left of “weaponizing” the virus to “shut down the economy.”

“You were called to the White House to talk about the coronavirus and the response—and you went—and then people on the political left tried to cancel you with essentially a boycott. But then it turned around, people were supporting you with a ‘buycott’ and I understand Goya Foods has just finished your biggest, most successful year ever,” host Steve Doocy said to CEO Robert Unanue, a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump.

“Yes,” Unanue replied. “You know, the problem is it’s a political year and they weaponized coronavirus unfortunately to shut down this economy.”

Throughout the pandemic, Unanue has been very public about his views on economic restrictions put in place by governors and local authorities to help stymie the spread of COVID-19.

“The worst thing we can do is shut down our economy, kill our spirit,” Unanue continued. “You know, we need a reason to get up in the morning: God, family, work. And they’re taking away our spirit. They’re taking away our ability to work. They essentially declared martial law, I believe, in this country, shutting everything down. It’s the worst thing we could have done, just for political gain. I think it’s criminal. I think it’s immoral. To shut down this economy for this basically political reasons and, you know, we’re one nation under God. We’re not one nation under Twitter. We’re not one nation under big media, or under central government.”

Unanue’s latest comments come the morning after President-elect Joe Biden unveiled his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 economic relief plan that he calls the “American Rescue Plan.” The plan seeks to speed up the United States’ vaccination effort, improve COVID-19 testing capacity to assist businesses and schools in reopening, and send $1,400 stimulus checks to Americans and federal dollars to state and local governments so they aren’t forced to fire police officers, firefighters, and other first responders, along with teachers and health workers.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
