President Trump has been working to fight the coronavirus. Long before Democrats even knew what was going on, he was taking action.
The president closed the border to China—perhaps one of the biggest things keeping the spread in check. He’s secured billions to help test and treat the disease.
But the fear of this virus can have a bigger impact than the disease itself. We’ve seen the markets fluctuate as news spreads.
And workers and businesses worry about the cost to their ability to pay the bills. So, Trump has some more solutions.
From Fox News:
President Trump said Monday evening that he will be meeting with congressional leaders on Tuesday to press them about what can be done to help the economy as it struggles amid the coronavirus outbreak.
Trump said that he plans to meet with Senate leadership on Wednesday to discuss a payroll tax cut, small business aid and help for hourly workers who might become sick.
Trump is coordinating with Republican lawmakers to cut payroll taxes. He is also looking at ensuring hourly workers can take time off, if they are ill.
There is also talks of a small business loan program, so that people can survive during this season.
So, what have Democrat lawmakers said about these plans? I bet you can guess.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) appeared to pour cold water on those proposals and shared some of their own ideas…
“What was missing from the President’s talk is how he is actually going to deal with the spread of the coronavirus,” Schumer told reporters on Monday. “That’s what’s causing all the economic hardship.”
Wow. Does Chuck Schumer really believe what he says?
Schumer and Pelosi tried to tear apart Trump’s plan to help businesses cope with the coronavirus outbreak. They accused the president of not working to deal with the spread of the virus.
Hey, Democrats—that’s what he’s been doing since day one! The president and his task force have been working around the clock to contain and prevent this virus from spreading.
If Schumer bothered to listen for one second, he would have learned all this from Vice President Mike Pence. Not to mention the team of leaders he’s working with.
But no, the Democrats are determined to ignore the hard work scientists are doing at the White House. This is the same senator who complained when Trump closed our border to China.
Only to delete that tweet, once he realized that was a good idea.
The president is actually working to help Americans during this situation. He’s battling the virus from all sides.
Meanwhile, Democrats only get in front of the media cameras and complain.
SHARE if you stand with Trump, not the Do-Nothing Democrats!
