President Donald Trump claimed the coronavirus pandemic has proven his America-first economic philosophy correct, slamming the competing financial theories espoused by those he dismissed as “globalists.”
“Look, there’s nothing good about what happened with the plague, OK? Especially the death. But the one thing is, it said, ‘Trump was right,’” the president, referring to himself in the third person, told host Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business in an interview that aired Thursday.
“Because I was getting a lot of fightback, even from people that I like a lot in Congress, et cetera, and now they’re not fighting,” Trump continued — going on to criticize “these stupid supply chains that are all over the world”
