PROMISE MADE, PROMISE KEPT: Navy Hospital Ship Arrives in New York

The media tried to turn the life-saving deployment of the Comfort into an opportunity to attack the President.

They were wrong.
On March 18, President Trump announced that he was ordering the deployment of two Navy hospital ships to assist in efforts to combat the coronavirus, and that they would be launched “in the next week or so.”
Democrats and media saw this as another opportunity to attack the President. Dem operative Matt McDermott told his 81,000 Twitter followers that “Trump promised Navy hospital ships were being deployed. It was a lie.” Obama bro Dan Pfeiffer said ship “won’t be there for weeks.”
On March 20, NBC’s Peter Alexander accused President Trump of engaging in “positive spin” and “giving Americans a false sense of hope” and “misrepresenting the preparedness right now.” Alexander cited “the ship that’s not ready to sail.”
On March 27, just nine days after President Trump’s announcement, the USNS Mercy hospital ship docked in the Port of Los Angeles. It has already taken on patients to free up regular hospital beds for coronavirus patients.
March 28, as Trump visited Virginia, to thank the members of the USNS Comfort and send it off to NYC, CNN refused to cover it. The ship will arrive in NYC today, ahead of schedule, just as Trump promised, to help the city relieve pressure on hospitals and combat the coronavirus.
On President Trump’s order, the Comfort was “rushed out of maintenance with historic speed — it was supposed to be here for four weeks, and they did it in four days.”
Trump is getting the job done. His action to mobilize the fed gov and private sector in the war against the virus is saving lives. Just like his pledge to expand testing capabilities, the docking of the Mercy in L.A. and the Comfort in NYC is another promise made, promise kept.
