In an exclusive interview, Vice President Mike Pence joined The Rich Zeoli Show discussing the fight against COVID-19 and getting the economy restarted as quickly as possible.
“We see some encouraging news. If you look at where all of this began for America in the Seattle area and Washington state and California the numbers in those states have been low and steady. They’ve been low and steady because they’ve been doing [social distancing.]
Pence continued, “I want to say thanks to all of your listeners in the greater Philadelphia area for putting into practice the guidance from your Governor [Wolf} and your state and local officials and also just practicing that social distancing that we unveiled more than 15 days ago and now we’re in the midst of 30 days to slow the spread. There are early indications, even in the New York, New Jersey area and Louisiana that these efforts are having the beginnings of a good effect.”
Pence also weighed in on the removal of needless regulations on the private sector during this time that have helped see breakthroughs in the fight against COVID-19 and to get the economy back up and running.
“America is a nation that works and he [Trump] is anxious as soon we can responsibly do it, to re-open America. The fastest way we can get there is for people to continue to heed the guidance of the President’s coronavirus guidelines as well as what your state and local leaders are saying.”
