Kayleigh McEnany: President Trump Is ‘Undeterred and Resolute’ In Handling Coronavirus

Kayleigh McEnany, National Press Secretary for the Donald J. Trump 2020 reelection campaign, emphasized that President Trump has been “undeterred and resolute” in his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, during Thursday’s episode of “The Sara Carter Show” podcast.

“The president is undeterred and resolute in acting and leading. Those two hour press briefings are a phenomenal opportunity for the American people to see our President in action. I mean that is exactly what he’s doing,” she told host Sara A. Carter.

“He acted early”

The President acted as early as Jan. 6, to limit travel to China, and, on Jan. 31, he enacted a full-scale travel ban on China.

At the time, Democrats, like the President’s opponent former Vice President Joe Biden, argued that the restrictions on China were racist, McEnany explained.

“He acted early. Democrats are now on this new talking point saying you know why didn’t he act early while in fact he did on January 6th. He issued a travel advisory against China January 30 for those travel restrictions the same ones that Joe Biden called xenophobic,” McEnany said.

“The Democrats were focused on impeachment”

While the President was working to ensure the health and safety of the American people, the Democrats were undeterred in pushing articles of impeachment against the President, McEnany argued.

“The first week of February, you had Democrats voting still on this last impeachment vote to then acquit the President, thanks to Republicans standing up for the truth,” McEnany said.

The Senate vote to acquit Trump was, in fact, on Feb. 5.

McEnany added, “But, you know they were focused on impeachment, this President was acting. Joe Biden was calling him xenophobic and fear mongering and hysterical, but President Trump was taking action and that early action saved a lot of lives. You know, Dr. Anthony Fauci praised that early action for having abated the crisis. So I’m proud to have a president like him and an American people that recognize his truth.”

CNN announces controversial presidential debate rules obviously intended to benefit Biden

CNN announced its several presidential debate rules over the weekend sparking controversy. The rules will govern the upcoming debate between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden on June 27. A

After Trump publicly stated he would debate the president “any time and any where” the Biden campaign agreed to a total of two debates that would be closely regulated. Not only did the administration demand a ban on audiences, it also approved CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash as its moderators. Breitbart reports Tapper is one of Trump’s sharpest critics.

CNN announced its own additional parameters on Saturday, which likely were done in partnership with the White House:

  • Two commercial breaks (Likely to benefit Biden)
  • Campaign staff will not be able to interact with their candidate during the break
  • No opening statements, two-minute closing statements
  • Two-minute answer shot clock, one minute for rebuttals
  • Mics will be muted “except for the candidate whose turn it is to speak” (Likely to benefit Biden)

CNN reported its rules:

The 90-minute debate will include two commercial breaks, according to the network, and campaign staff may not interact with their candidate during that time. Both candidates agreed to appear at a uniform podium, and their podium positions will be determined by a coin flip.

Microphones will be muted throughout the debate except for the candidate whose turn it is to speak. While no props or pre-written notes will be allowed on the stage, candidates will be given a pen, a pad of paper and a bottle of water.

Some aspects of the debate – including the absence of a studio audience – will be a departure from previous debates. But, as in the past, the moderators “will use all tools at their disposal to enforce timing and ensure a civilized discussion,” according to the network.

Breitbart reports that the President is planning to spend about a week preparing to debate Trump who has also requested Biden receive a drug test before the debates. The White House did not respond in May as to whether Biden intends to use performance-enhancing drugs in preparation for the presidential debates.

Ron Klain, Biden’s former chief of staff who is going on vacation to help Biden prepare for the debates, did not respond to Politico Playbook’s request for comment about “whether any illegal substances are used as part of Klain’s debate prep.”
