Donald Trump on Monday described states with Democratic governors as "very bad states."

During a meeting with tech workers at the White House, during which Trump signed an executive order on hiring "American," Trump claimed that Democrats had run "some very bad states" and "very bad cities," adding that he didn't want to reward any of them with relief funding for supposedly "doing a bad job" on their coronavirus response.

If you look at some of the states, I won't insult anybody by naming those states, but you know what they are.
