Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) said during a live Q&A on Wednesday that President Trump is displaying an “epic level of negligence and incompetence that is costing human lives” during the coronavirus pandemic.
“I think that if Trump took this seriously, if Republicans took it seriously, I think that if we decided to listen to scientists early more than we listen to, you know, people who care more about profit than human lives, we would have taken precautions much earlier and we would have saved lives,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“We either would have gone into lockdown earlier in some circumstances or we would have started producing these damn ventilators way earlier than we are now…” she added. “Everything that is happening is happening late. And every decision that we make late means that people are dying unnecessarily.”
At every opportunity, often prompted by a complicit news media, the Dems build their false narrative that the pandemic is a disaster of Trump’s making. They have no other way of beating him in November.
