According to a report by Russian Television Today (RT), Maryland Governor and Republican Larry Hogan said in response to Trump’s tweet, “Don’t play golf and give up.” Earlier, Hogan was Korean. With the help of his wife, the first batch of test kits purchased from South Korea were exposed to problems, and they have never been used since, and were criticized by Trump.
Hogan said on Twitter on Sunday: “If you do your job well, the governors of the United States will not be forced to find test kits by themselves during the epidemic like we did in Maryland. (Trump) ) Stop playing golf and give up.”
Ironically, Hogan’s tweet was in response to a Trump post that pointed out that the governor had purchased a defective kit and never even used it. Trump said: “This RINO (the Republican in name) will never meet the standard. Hogan is just as bad as the defective kits he bought for a big price.”
Earlier, the Washington Post reported on Friday that the government of Hogan, Maryland, spent US$9.46 million in importing 500,000 new coronavirus test kits from South Korea in April this year, but these kits proved to be problematic and were not approved. used. Later, the state government paid US$2.5 million to the South Korean company LabGenomics in exchange for 500,000 kits as a replacement.
According to reports, the deal was initially considered a public relations victory for Hogan, which won him the attention of the American and South Korean media. Hogan said his Korean wife, Yumi Hogan, helped him complete the purchase of the kit, which he called “the most critical part of our recovery plan for Maryland.”
On Sunday, Hogan accused Trump of legal challenges to the results of the U.S. election. He said: “We (the United States) are starting to look like a banana republic (referring to a poor government that is incompetent and dependent on foreign aid). It is time for them to stop talking nonsense. It’s a bad idea. It’s getting weird every day. Frankly speaking, I feel very embarrassed that there are no more people in the (Republican) Party coming forward to speak up.”
