Ruddy, Thatcher Adviser: Media Using Virus to Attack Trump

(Newsmax TV/"The Chris Salcedo Show"

Monday, 23 March 2020 07:43 PM

Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy commented Monday about the mainstream media's coverage and criticism of President Donald Trump's actions in relation to the coronavirus outbreak.

"It was the president's decision to stop passenger traffic and airline traffic to China," Ruddy told Newsmax TV’s Chris Salcedo. "Had he not made that decision, it would be a far worse situation today. He got roundly criticized by the media for that."

In addition, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden called Trump a racist for closing down China travel, said Ruddy.

Cuomo and Gov. Gavin Newsom of California have praised Trump for his actions, said Ruddy, but there are many in the media, as well as officials such as New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, who "clearly want to use this for political purposes."

"I think most Americans see what the president is doing, that he's trying hard to deal with this problem and they're not giving him a break," said Ruddy.

Meanwhile, if Americans follow serious social distancing, which is what Trump has been advocating, "we're pretty much going to be safe," said Ruddy.


John Browne, also a Trump campaign adviser and former adviser to Margaret Thatcher, said he agreed with Ruddy, as the private sector makes a huge contribution to the nation's GDP and to the nation's social fabric.

"What appalls me is to think of the $4 trillion package sitting in the Senate that is basically being held up by Democrats for political reasons, when they're facing this problem, which I think you hinted, is more an economic and political problem than a health one. I think Chris is right.

“We're getting a grip of it and I think we'll get a grip of it more closely, but the world has changed.“

"The real terror, the fear that I worry about is the economy that we head not into a global recession, but a depression," said Ruddy. "The president's fighting against that. The media and the Democrats would like to kill the patient. To stop the virus you don't want to do that."
