Pelosi Places Blame on Trump for Economy, Says His “Failures” Cost Lives


Nnacy Pelosi’s been spending a lot of her time recently criticizing President Trump.

The funny thing is, Trump’s spending his days in Washington fixing the COVID crisis while Pelosi is holed up in San Francisco.

Appearing on MSNBC, however, Pelosi almost blamed everything wrong with the world on Trump. Both the souring economy and spread of the coronavirus land on Pelosi’s list of the President’s faults.

Isn’t Trump the one who wants businesses to reopen as soon as possible, while Democrats want to see them remained closed for the near future?

Watch Pelosi’s appearance on MSNBC below:

The funny thing is that Pelosi ripped Trump for not invoking his power under the Defense Production Act sooner. Remember a few months ago when Democrats impeached the President for "abusing" his power?

You can read the details on Pelosi's appearance from Breitbart:

Friday on MSNBC, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) accused President Donald Trump of not accepting the facts about the seriousness of the coronavirus pandemic, which cost lives and the economy.

Pelosi also said Trump called this pandemic a “hoax.”

On February 28, at a campaign rally in South Carolina, President Donald Trump compared the Democrats’ criticism of his administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic to impeachment by saying, “this is their new hoax.”

On the protests against stay home orders, Pelosi said, “I won’t take the bait. This is another example of the distraction that they want to make from the fact that the president had said that this pandemic was a hoax, and that’s not true. That the president said, it will magically disappear. That’s not true. Again and again, he was in denial and delay in dealing with this. This is just a distraction. Don’t fall for that. Don’t take the bait.”

Anchor Ari Melber said, “Looking at the economic hardship, which of course, is part of the bill you mentioned that you’re working on — Washington Post reporting 22 million unemployed. This was wiped out a decade of job gains.”

He continued, “The U.S. has not seen this level of jobless, the Post reports, quote, since the Great Depression. Speaker, do you view this as simply a product of this tough pandemic, or do you view this as a Trump recession?”

Pelosi answered, “It’s probably a combination. Let’s right now talk about the pandemic because that’s a matter of life and death. We’re in the situation that we’re in because early into this, the president refused to accept the facts.”

She continued, “So the situation we’re in is largely of his making, calling it a hoax, saying magically it will disappear, not calling upon the Defense Production Act to protect the workers who are trying to save lives as they risk their own lives in doing so.”

Pelosi blames Trump for the economy going south, but her and Chuck Schumer blocked Republicans' request for an additional $250 billion in aid for small businesses.

Here's how some on Twitter reacted to Pelosi:

Meanwhile, Senator Lindsey Graham had his own critique for the Speaker of the House. Pelosi called out Trump for halting aid to the World Health Organization even though evidence is surfacing that the organization bended to China's will early on in the coronavirus pandemic.

Fox News reports on Graham's comments:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's criticism of President Trump over his halting of funding to the World Health Organization goes beyond just a personal attack, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Saturday night.

"So her issue is she hates Trump to the point of hurting our own nation," Graham said on Fox News' "Justice with Judge Jeanine."

"She is condemning President Trump for cutting funds off of the WHO because they've been in China's pocket, as she at one time mentioned, the fact the virus came out of China, that the Chinese Communist Party lied to the American people and the world at large."

Pelosi blasted Trump’s decision to freeze funding for the WHO, vowing Wednesday to “swiftly” challenge the action amid the coronavirus crisis. In a statement, Pelosi, D-Calif., said the halt in funding amid the global pandemic was “senseless.”

Graham defended President Trump and his Chinese travel ban for protecting Americans.

"President Trump has done a damn good job protecting this country," Graham said. "He closed down travel to China when nobody in the world suggested we should. On March 13th, he declared a national emergency, put CDC guidelines into place that I think have saved a million Americans.
