Chris Wallace Showcases Accomplishments of Missouri Governor Eric Greitens

The Missouri governor was this week’s “Power Player of the Week” on Fox News Sunday

Fox News Sunday named Missouri Governor Eric Greitens as their “Power Player of the Week” on Sunday, highlighting Greiten’s service as a Navy SEAL and his charitable work.

Host Chris Wallace detailed how Greitens had studied as a Rhodes Scholar before deciding to join the SEALs. Greitens’ service did not stop with the end of his military career, as he has been active in a non-profit called The Mission Continues.

In an interview with Fox News, Greitens emphasized the importance of service, describing how it has influenced his life.

Greitens also criticized a lack of leadership during the Ferguson riots, saying it inspired him to run for office in Missouri.

“Ferguson was a tremendous failure. If we had a leader who showed up with any kind of command presence and courage and calm and clarity, we could have had peace by the second night,” Greitens said.

In contrast, the governor has focused his efforts to “get results” for Missouri residents.

“Greitens has been busy since then, signing legislation to tighten regulations on abortion clinics and more recently, signing an executive order to create a prescription monitoring program to help deal with the opioid crisis,” Wallace said.
