President Donald Trump singled out Gov. J.B. Pritzker in an interview on Sunday for Illinois' coronavirus response.
Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business asked Trump how he would decide which states and cities will receive federal financial support, to which he called out local Democratic leaders.
Trump accused Pritzker of money being the motivating factor for the his response to the pandemic, the president claiming he "knows the family."
"He wants money because, you know, let's make up for the 25 years and some very bad current years," Trump said.
Both leaders have previously traded attacks on how their respective governments have reacted to the global pandemic.
"I have not been counting on the White House because there have been too many situations in which they have made promises, not delivered," Pritzker said on CNN last week.

Prickster looks like Jabba in a suit.
Too bad Trump didn’t criticize Pritzker for keeping his economy tightly shut down and threatening businesses that want to open up.
Instead, Trump talks about “poorly run” state government, which isn’t the same thing.
Trump shouldn’t be giving federal money to any governor who refuses to let his state’s businesses open and generate revenue all on their own.
Unfortunately, Trump blasted Georgia’s Republican governor for opening up his state, so Trump is not giving Americans the support they need to be freed from state dictatorships.
Trump don’t talk. Do action. You said you had the power. Use it. Uphold the oath you swore to.
Open the country up now Mr. President!!!
Give us one such incident.
