Nancy Pelosi used one word about coronavirus that left Trump red with rage
Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats believe in never letting a crisis go to waste.
With the spread of the Chinese coronavirus Democrats are dusting off the ugliest playbook in American politics.
And now Nancy Pelosi used one word about coronavirus that left Trump red with rage.
During his Wednesday press conference, President Trump pledge to work with Congress on emergency funding to combat the potential spread of the coronavirus.
Congressional Republicans made it clear they were willing to do their part to pass a funding bill to help protect the American people.
But in her weekly Thursday press conference, Pelosi made it clear her goal is score political points to damage the President’s re-election chances.
In her remarks to the press, Pelosi falsely described the administration’s response as “chaotic.”
“Up until now, the Trump administration has offered an opaque and chaotic response to this outbreak. They left critical positions vacant in charge of handling pandemics at the national security council also on the Department of Homeland Security. They left them vacant. They dismissed the people and never filled the spots. They were there from previous administrations,” Pelosi ranted.
Pelosi also falsely claimed that the President’s budget cut the proposed funding for programs to combat potential pandemics like the coronavirus.
“The Trump budget calls for slashing almost seven hundred million dollars from the Centers for Diseases Control.
And this was the budget which came out after we knew about the coronavirus threat,” Pelosi added.
This was simply not true.
Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar testified before the House of Representatives that programs dedicated to the spread of infectious diseases increased by more than $100 million.
Pelosi spread misinformation to create panic all for partisan political gain.
This is not a typical Washington, D.C. food fight.
Lives are at stake.
But Nancy Pelosi doesn’t care about the potential economic or human toll her lies cause so long as they increase the Democrats chances of winning in 2020.
