국회의원은 돈 주니어에게 뎀스 '희망'사람들이 코로나 바이러스를 받고 죽어 트럼프를 탈선 해읽기 시간 : 2 분
Democratic Rep. John Garamendi had some harsh words for Donald Trump Jr. after the president’s son said Dems “seemingly hope” the coronavirus comes to the US and “kills millions.”
The coronavirus is not only a pandemic, it’s also now a political tool for Republicans and Democrats to lob across the aisle at each other.
California Congressman Garamendi perhaps went further than any politician has so far when he spoke about the disease and the political response to it in the US while appearing on MSNBC on Friday. Garamendi was particularly upset with Donald Trump Jr. over an earlier statement the president’s son made about Democrats seeming to want people in the US to get sick so President Donald Trump looks bad.
“He shouldn’t be near me when he says that,” Garamendi said of Trump Jr. “There would be a serious altercation.”
He later doubled down on his threat after calling the comments from the president’s eldest son “outrageous.”
“Don Jr. better not get any place close to me. It would not be a healthy situation,” 그는 말했다.

The comments from Donald Trump Jr. came from a Fox News appearance earlier in the day.
“Anything that they can use to try to hurt Trump, they will. Anything he does in a positive sense, like you heard from the reporter that was just suspended from ABC, they will not give him credit for,” 그는 말했다.
그는 덧붙였다, “But for them to try to take a pandemic and seemingly hope that it comes here and kills millions of people so that they could end Donald Trump’s streak of winning is a new level of sickness.”
President Trump has lashed out at mainstream media outlets and Democrats for making the coronavirus situation 보이“as bad as possible.”
Democrats have responded by saying the president is downplaying the threat. Presidential hopeful Joe Biden told CNN this week Trump needs to let the “experts” speak.
“He at a minimum exaggerates everything, and the idea that he’s going to stand there and say everything’s fine don’t worry? Who’s going to believe that? Let the experts speak like we did in our administration,” 비덴이 말했다.
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, meanwhile, has 소개 a bill that would move funds from construction of the southern border wall in the US to efforts to stop the spread of the virus.
And Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer believes the president’s request for $1.25 billion in emergency funds is too low, as he is requesting over $8 billion to deal with the situation.
While the coronavirus is just another issue splitting Democrats and Republicans right down the middle, the criticism from Trump Jr. about Dems wanting the country to fail to make the president look bad is not without merit.
March 2 marks an “economic shutdown” for some Trump critics. The movement was promoted by actress and liberal activist Patricia Arquette on Instagram, where she encouraged her followers to “not spend money on anything anywhere.”
This encouragement to hurt the economy is happening while the Dow Jones average is 급락하는 due to fears over the coronavirus.
