“I have a feeling that a lot of the numbers that are being said in some areas are just bigger than they’re going to be,” Trump said on “Hannity” (FOX 3/26).
“I don’t believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators. You know, you go into major hospitals, sometimes they’ll have two ventilators. And now all of a sudden they’re saying, ‘can we order 30,000 ventilators?'”
“Look, it’s a bad situation. We haven’t seen anything like it. But the end result is we have to get back to work and I think we can start by opening up certain parts of the country.”
The president compared purchasing a ventilator to purchasing a car, calling the machines “very expensive” and “very intricate.”
“And you know they’d say, like Gov. Cuomo and others, they’d say we want 30,000 of them. Thirty thousand? Think of this, you know you go to hospitals that have one in a hospital and now all of a sudden everyone’s asking for these vast numbers.”
Hannity says in monologue that Cuomo is “bitching and complaining” and should “own his own failures” and Trump is saving NY.
