House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, appeared on Fox News Sunday and went after President Trump on his ‘weak leadership’ during his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. She says the President ignored “scientific evidence” in his handling of it.
“Leaders — leaders take responsibility. So I said he’s a weak leader. He doesn’t take responsibility. He places blame — blame on others,” Pelosi said. “And that might have been OK before, but we cannot continue down a path that is, again I’ll come back to science, science, science, evidence, data on how we should go forward.”
She says President Trump gets an ‘F’ on testing. Democrats have attacked the President about his administrations claim that they’d have 5 million tests delivered by the end of the week, back on March 10.
They have now moved the goalposts to call it a lie since there weren't 5 million tests performed.
In a somewhat surprising move, Chris Wallace called Pelosi out by showing a video of her encouraging people to come to Chinatown on February 24th. According to Pelosi, that wasn't an example of her taking it lightly but she was 'fighting against racism'.
Pelosi insisted that this was not an example of her taking the outbreak lightly, and claimed it was only meant “to end the discrimination, the stigma, that was going out against the Asian-American community."
While Democrats are taking heat for holding up funding for small businesses through the Paycheck Protection Act, Pelosi insists that's not the case and that "everything she's doing is about the coronavirus".
