Steve Adubato is joined by U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R) – NJ, 2nd Congressional District, to discuss his decision to switch from the Democratic to the Republican Party, President Trump’s leadership throughout the pandemic and his thoughts on Joe Biden’s selection of U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris as his Vice Presidential running mate.
U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R) – NJ says President Trump has done well handling the COVID-19 crisis. He says no one has been prepared for a situation like this, but President Trump was able to obtain PPE and ventilators, help the unemployed, and help small businesses. U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew says he disagreed with how Governor Murphy handled opening up the state.
Van Drew says, “The other problem has been that there’s been a lot of politics around this, even in Washington where we needed to get things done, and there were some folks, and I would argue quite frankly, on the other side, that were too busy playing politics.”
U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R) – NJ discusses his switch from the Democratic party to the Republican party due to the fact that the party changed radically. He adds, “The Democratic party has changed. It has become very far to the left. In many ways very socialist, and in many ways very Marxist.”
Steve Adubato asks U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R) – NJ to give Joe Biden’s Vice Presidential running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, a rating as a leader. He gives Kamala a rating of 1 out of 10.
