President Donald Trump claims his campaign staff had to move the site of his rally to comply with Pennsylvania Gov.
Tom Wolf's COVID-19 protocols.
At a rally in Allentown on Tuesday, Trump fumed about it to his supporters and issued a none-too-subtle threat to the state's Democratic governor.
According to CNN, Trump threatened to withhold federal aid or other assistance the next time Pennsylvania needs it because Gov.
Wolf inconvenienced him.
I'll remember it, Tom.
I'm gonna remember it, Tom.
'Hello, Mr. President, this is Governor Wolf, I need help, I need help.'
You know what?
These people are bad.
President Donald J.
Trump Campaign Rally, Allentown, Pennsylvania Trump's words may have a chilling effect on other governors, who do not wish to have to factor in Trump's wrath in making decisions for their state.
It also indicates Trump's mindset that the public purse is something he can wield as a personal weapon against those who displease him.
