California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Dem, refused to bash President Trump during a press conference he just gave to update the state on the coronavirus outbreak.
He’s “not interested in finding daylight’ between the state and the Trump administration, he said:
Wow, Newsom says he's "not interested in finding daylight" between state and Trump administration, says that federal govt. has followed thru on everything they have discussed.

And that the administration has followed through on everything he and President Trump spoke about privately:
Newsom says that he had a "private conversation" with Trump and the president said everything Newsom "could have hoped for" and the administration has since followed through with what Trump said.

Wow. This is how it is *supposed* to work:
Newsom declines to criticize the Trump administration's response to the #coronavirus. He says he's working closely with federal officials and praised VP Mike Pence's work handling the situation.
