Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade was not happy with Donald Trump on Wednesday after the president decided to go on a Twitter tirade and announce that he was gutting any stimulus negotiation talks until he is elected president again.
Kilmeade began by discussing the importance of more help from the government to help businesses get through the novel coronavirus pandemic.
“For the president to come out with a tweet like that with the markets still open, it just crashed the market and cost people a lot of money,” he said. “You have 30,000 people who are about to lose their jobs and be furloughed through no fault of their own. The tourism industry, the hospitality industry has been destroyed. If you work in a hotel, you don’t need me to tell you.”
He then called out Trump for calling off the negotiations until after the election.
“I understand negotiating tactics, but not at this point!” he fumed. “I actually think the president has more pressure on him now than he had before his first tweet because Nancy Pelosi can now clearly turn around and say, ‘It’s not my fault, I was having talks!’ So it looks like the president is the one to blame now! I don’t know how he has leverage!”
