Dem Louisiana Gov Edwards: Trump, Federal Gov’t Response To Harvey ‘Has Been Excellent’
Breitbart ^ | 08/29/17 | Pam Key

Tuesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Gov. John Bel Edwards (D-LA) said President Donald Trump and the federal government response to the impact of Hurricane Harvey on his state has been “excellent.”

Edwards said, “Well, first of all, let me tell you the federal government has been excellent. The president has called twice. He signed the declaration we requested within a few hours of our making the request on Sunday evening. Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Duke has been wonderful and FEMA administrator Brock has been great as well.”

He added,”What we need right now is really mother nature to cooperate more than anything else. We believe we’re positioned well. We’ve been staging assets and personnel. We’ve got 700 national guardsmen for example that are working. We’ve got high water vehicles, boats, aircraft staged where we need them. We just need for this storm system to move on through so that question starts to dry out.”

Sounds like one of the few Democrats wanting to also represent white people.

Gov Edwards, you might as well just become a Republican now. Trump derangement system will harass you forever...

Come on over to our party, Governor. But, if not, try to move your party back to the center.

I’m guessing he’ll get a phone call shortly, and walk back those remarks.

Edwards is what I would call a Truman or JFK Democrat. Quite frankly, the kind of democrat than many of my family members use to support, as did many other traditional ethnic Catholic voters, but became the so called Reagan Democrats back in the 1980’s (which applies to me).

Not far Leftist in spirit of Senator Warren or Sanders, or former President Obama or any democrat politician from California or Oregon, etc. He is a West Point Grad and his Father was the Sherriff of a LA parish for a long time. His younger brother is now the Sherriff of that same parish and his other brother I believe is a City Police Chief of a town in that same parish.

He comes from a Law enforcement background and military background. From what I can tell, he is well respected by most people in LA from all backgrounds because he is not a partisan hack, fair minded guy.

Ya, what’s up with this? He’s a Democrat and praising the Trump administration response? Didn’t he know that Democrats need to condemn a Republican no matter what is going on?
