ANNAPOLIS — Gov. Larry Hogan responded to President Donald Trump after he criticized the governor on Twitter Sunday morning.

In a tweet, the president said: "Report: Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, Anti-Trump Hero, Paid for Flawed Coronavirus Tests from South Korea via @BreitbartNews. This (Republican In Name Only) will never make the grade. Hogan is just as bad as the flawed tests he paid big money for!"

Hogan tweeted and responded back, saying: "If you had done your job, America's governors wouldn't have been forced to fend for themselves to find tests in the middle of a pandemic, as we successfully did in Maryland. Stop golfing and concede.'

The report the president cited claims the tests were flawed and never used, something the governor disputes.
