During a sit-down interview with Fox 2’s Vic Faust, the governor said he understands most people have their minds made up if they do or don’t like the president. However, Parson said Democrats jumped the gun without having all the facts.

Parson, a Republican, said both parties should be focused on jobs, infrastructure, and trade.
