Valadao: Trump Is “Doing The Best He Possibly Can.”
As millions of Californians and Central Valley families and small businesses face the twin crises of a global pandemic and the economic fallout leading to freefalling unemployment and a statewide recession, failed former Congressman David Valadao wants to make “sure government gets out of the way,” and says that President Trump is “doing the best he possibly can.”
Instead of supporting the Central Valley’s small businesses and families amid layoffs, furloughs in the thousands and a growing stark economic reality, David Valadao told the voters of the Central Valley, in an interview:
“On that strategy and the way that [Trump] has played it out, he’s doing the best he possibly can […] I think he’s in good spot for that. We’ve just got to keep looking for more ways to be helpful and making sure government gets out of the way.”
Meanwhile as 3.4 million Californians filed for unemployment in the last five weeks, the Federal government has supported California with billions in support to help California families during this crisis, including millions in support for the Central Valley.
“Unfortunately for Central Valley families and small businesses, this isn’t the first time Valadao has turned his back on them to carry water for President Trump. From his 98% support for the Trump Agenda to his vote to cut health care from 60,000 of his own constituents, David Valadao has shown time and again who he serves – and it’s not the Central Valley.”-DCCC Spokesperson Andy Orellana.

The Trevor Carey Show: April 2020 – Interview with Former Congressman David Valadao
Minute 13: HOST: David Valadao, give the Trump Administration a grade how they’ve handled this so far in your opinion.
VALADAO: You know, I actually think a lot of the stuff that he’s done has been very helpful. The Administration has been out and about on different types of industries and trying to find ways to be helpful. They’ve been rushing into it, and I know that’s difficult to do especially with this program, the PPP that everyone’s looking into, all the business owners are looking at to try to keep employees on the payroll. But I think the strategy is good. We want to make sure that we keep businesses open, employees employed, and any way we can do that so we have to try recreating the wheel when we come out of this, and start getting the economy going again. I think on that strategy and the way that he has played it out, he’s doing the best he possibly can. And so I think he’s in good spot for that.
We’ve just got to keep looking for more ways to be helpful and making sure government gets out of the way. And that’s another thing he talks quite a bit about is relaxing regulations on certain processes and certain departments so that private sector can do what they do best, and I think that’s something that we should be very proud of and very happy that he thinks the way he does.
