"I can only make a judgment as governor that I believe is in the best interest, the health and safety of Minnesotans and stick with that," Gov. Tim Walz said during a recent coronavirus press briefing. Walz, above, is seen at a COVID-19 briefing on April 8.

President Donald Trump said Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker is "always complaining" after he criticized the Trump administration's response to the coronavirus. In Michigan, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's frequent criticism of Trump's "slow" response earned her the nickname "Gretchen 'Half' Whitmer."

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee told the president the nation needed a "Tom Brady" not a "backup quarterback" in addressing the global pandemic. A day later, Trump referred to Inslee as a "failed presidential candidate" who is "constantly chirping."
