Sarah Sanders: Coronavirus deaths would’ve been ‘much higher’ if Trump wasn’t president

During an appearance on Fox & Friends this Tuesday, former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about President Trump’s performance regarding his response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Host Steve Doocy mentioned that over 125,000 Americans have died from the virus — a “heartbreaking” number that he says Democrats may use against Trump in the run-up to the 2020 election.

“I think if Donald Trump hadn’t been president, that number could’ve been much higher, and could’ve been much worse,” Sanders replied. “Thankfully the president took some early steps, like stopping travel — which a lot of Democrats criticized him for.”

“One of the other things that Donald Trump did that I think was truly remarkable, that he gets no credit for, is that he got government out of the way,” she continued. “He allowed American companies to step up — American ingenuity to take over, when we needed supplies and resources. He cut the red tape, and let Americans do what they do best.”
