MLG has hissy fit on Twitter after Pelosi refuses to negotiate with Trump on COVID-19 relief

In September, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham testified in front of the U.S. House Committee on Financial Services, asking them to bail out New Mexico, citing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and low oil prices. 

During her testimony, she repeatedly claimed she would be “tightening” her “belt” in the coming months and years. However, she has spent billions of state dollars on her costly pet projects, including implementing a new state department offering free daycare and the “Energy Transition Act,” which will totally wipe out all oil and gas producers within a few short years. Currently, 39% of New Mexico’s budget is sustained by the oil and gas industry.

While President Trump’s team has been trying to work on a second round of COVID-19 relief for Americans, Democrats have refused to negotiate with the Administration’s proposals, the President offering up to $1.6 trillion in relief, whereas Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her caucus have refused to make concessions from their $2.4 trillion proposal

On Tuesday, President Trump wrote on Twitter, “Nancy Pelosi is asking for $2.4 Trillion Dollars to bailout poorly run, high crime, Democrat States, money that is in no way related to COVID-19. We made a very generous offer of $1.6 Trillion Dollars and, as usual, she is not negotiating in good faith. I am rejecting their request, and looking to the future of our Country. I have instructed my representatives to stop negotiating until after the election when, immediately after I win, we will pass a major Stimulus Bill that focuses on hardworking Americans and Small Business. I have asked [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell not to delay, but to instead focus full time on approving my outstanding nominee to the United States Supreme Court, Amy Coney Barrett. Our Economy is doing very well. The Stock Market is at record levels, JOBS and unemployment also coming back in record numbers. We are leading the World in Economic Recovery, and THE BEST IS YET TO COME!” 

Clearly rattled by the President’s statement, Lujan Grisham retweeted the President’s post, writing, “Thousands of New Mexicans need the federal government’s help right now. Not November, not whenever you get around to it. The pandemic is real, the economic crisis is real – whether you believe in them or not, Mr. President. Do your job.” 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Lujan Grisham refused to trim the fat off of her bloated 2020 $7.6 billion state budget, trimming it to only $7.22 billion, while cutting $318 critical federal COVID-19 relief for tribal communities and local governments. 

Lujan Grisham has totally locked down New Mexico, which has killed most industries, including the tourism industry, which trickles down into many sectors of the economy. As of the latest jobs number report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, New Mexico’s unemployment rate was 34% higher than the unemployment rate nationwide and nearly double that of every neighboring state, including Colorado, which is also run by a Democrat governor. The neighboring states’ unemployment numbers are as follows: Arizona at 5.9%, Colorado at 6.7%, Texas at 6.8%, and Utah at 4.1%.

Lujan Grisham has refused to ease coronavirus restrictions in recent weeks, with the state’s small businesses and even larger businesses being forced into temporary or permanent closure. Just this week, the governor has gone after a trampoline park for reopening, while the state has seen more businesses shuttered.

    And well he should have rejected it. This is a COVID Stimulus Bill. NOT you, the other Governor’s who poorly run their states, or Nancy Pelosi’s pet projects bill. Quit pointing the finger at Trump. You mismanaged our funds, and continue to do so. Accept the stimulus for the people, not YOUR mismanagement. Get off the stage!

  2. MLG, you ALONE have destroyed our beautiful state while carrying out the radical left’s agenda. You are a complete disgrace to our State and the entire country. You blew thru the biggest surplus our state has ever had in less than 2 months!! I loathe you and want you OUT!! Voting ALL Red to get you and your cronies out!!

  3. Why are you mad at President. TRUMP? He clearly tried to release a stimulus package but Pelosi refused to meet him in the middle. BE MAD AT HER AND ALL THE OTHERS!!!!

  4. Hey MLG: Why don’t you open up our state completely, and let New Mexico prosper so the NM treasury can be replenished. There is no emergency. Let us out of virtual prison. We want to breath again. Don’t depend on the President when it was you who ran our state into the ground. We want all industries especially oil and tourism back open. We can have the Balloon Fest and the State Fair in November. Let’s try to help ourselves here instead of begging Nancy Pelosi, who couldn’t care less about us. She’s nothing but a Trump hater. God help her.

  5. MLG refuses to remove the sanctuary cities that is why she will not get any Federal Government. Plus she refused to open schools and businesses. TIME TO REMOVE MLG. WE WILL NOT WAIT ANY LONGER!!!!!!! VOTE RED!!!!!!!!

  6. New Mexico’s unemployment rate is not 34% higher as you stated. Please fact check as that is blatantly false. If it’s a typo, then hire a proofreader!
