Trump Was Right, Cuomo Was Wrong About Ventilator Needs

Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist

In late March, it was a huge story that Trump had told Sean Hannity he doubted that New York would need 30,000 ventilators. Politico framed the dust-up in an article headlined “Trump downplays need for ventilators as New York begs to differ“. Since this was such major news just a few weeks ago, it is interesting how little media coverage is devoted to the fact Trump wasn’t just right about the exaggerated needs, but that he and his administration were even more right than they probably imagined. Instead, the media kept the focus of their ire on Trump and continued to complain that he had correctly expressed concern over exaggerated claims.
