There are some things in politics you can count on. One of them is Democrats blaming President Trump for everything, including the coronavirus.
On Meet the Press, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker told NBC the President isn't leading.
"We are the ones who have to provide the leadership because the federal government just has fallen down on this.
California Congresswoman Maxine Waters took it to another level during an appearance on MSNBC.
“Well, you know, one of the problems that we have is there’s not a lot of trust from the average American in the president of the United States. Unfortunately, he has been documented to have lied so many times, to distort, to change the story, and so, you know, one of the things we look for in a leader and particularly the president of the United States is the kind of leadership where people can trust you because of the way you have conducted yourself as you have led the presidency, been in the presidency. So that starts out being a problem. He started out being a problem and giving misinformation, and talking about it was going to disappear and all of that. Now he’s doing cleanup. That’s okay. I don’t want to blame him for that. I want him to roll out with real facts and real information. Then he steps on his own attempt to get credibility by saying he takes no responsibility for the lack of testing that we’ve had going on in this country.”
Robin Armstrong with the R-N-C says he isn't surprised at all.
"They detest this President so much that they are using this as an opportunity," Armstrong stated, adding he is disappointed in the rhetoric.
"It's shameful that they are politicizing a virus that came from another country," he said.
