Rep. Maxine Waters does not play around when it comes to President Trump, and earlier this week, she took to Twitter to call out his delayed response to the COVID-19.
“Trump, since you destroyed the WH unit designed to plan for pandemics like #COVID19, you need to stop being duplicitous about the DPA & get more corps to develop masks, respirators, & everything needed to protect hospital workers trying to save lives. Get your act together!” the first in a series of tweets began.
“Trump, stop congratulating yourself!” she wrote. “You’re a failure & you’ve mishandled this #COVID19 disaster! You’re not knowledgeable & you don’t know more than experts & generals. Your ignorance & incompetence are appalling & you continue to demonstrate that every time you open your mouth!”
Waters took exception to Trump’s interview on Fox News last week where he stated that he wanted the country to reopen in time for Easter Sunday, despite all of the medical experts advising him otherwise.
“We’re opening up this incredible country. Because we have to do that. I would love to have it open by Easter,” Trump said on Fox News.
“I would love to have that. It’s such an important day for other reasons, but I’d love to make it an important day for this. I would love to have the country opened up, and rarin’ to go by Easter.”
He has since walked back on his remarks and has advised that the country will maintain social distancing until April 30 at the very least.
