Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) accused President Donald Trump of “cheering people on” with “guns and swastikas to the legislature in Michigan and saying these are really good people”.
Pelosi also indicated that she’s more interested in knowing “what the president knew and what his administration did or didn’t do” pertaining to the coronavirus, versus investigating China.
Nancy Pelosi told Andrea Mitchell: “The fact is if you undermine science, if you underfund testing, if you exaggerate the opportunity that it’s out there for the economy at the risk of people dying, that’s not a plan. Death is not an economic motivator stimulus. So why are we going down that path?”
“Why don’t we– you know everyone wants to get out and we think to unlock the lockdown is to test, trace, and treat as well as isolate and social distancing. And when the science tells us that we can do something differently or to be socially distant wearing your mask, doing things in a way that is appropriate. But not cheering people on going with guns and swastikas to the legislature in Michigan and saying these are really good people,” she claimed.
She continued, “What I don’t understand about someone associated with the task force is how the concern that that happened and it’s dangerous and these people can take this home with them and hurt their families and all of the rest, but they never say to the president, don’t look fondly on that. That’s not supposed to happen. It’s in defiance of the guidelines you’re asking people to honor and yet you honor those who are in violation of them.”
Pelosi also said of the Coronavirus Task Force and China: “Let’s forget about what they’re doing [be]cause they have been on a bad case. … And what you were saying about China, yes we want to know how this started. But we want to know what the president knew and what his administration did or didn’t do about it. That’s for later– an after-action review.” Video Below
