Trump has been criticized for firing the U.S. pandemic response team in 2018 to cut costs.
Coronavirus poses a serious health, diplomatic, & economic threat, & we must be prepared to confront it head-on. So I’m introducing a bill to transfer all funding for @realDonaldTrump's racist border wall to @HHSGov & @USAID to combat coronavirus. https://t.co/8IEhBWRjeL pic.twitter.com/9oAF0A2lGT

So, the Coronavirus, which started in China and spread to various countries throughout the world, but very slowly in the U.S. because President Trump closed our border, and ended flights, VERY EARLY, is now being blamed, by the Do Nothing Democrats, to be the fault of “Trump”.

I understand that lying about circumstances is your thing, but it’s probably not a great time to be attacking border security.
Your open borders policies would spread the pandemic faster than MSNBCNN seems to want it to spread for their political gain. 🙄 https://t.co/6zlOgcp6eM
