Rep Pressley on Trump Coronavirus Response: ‘it’s akin to war crimes’

Progresssive Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) went after President Trump and his administration over the handling of the coronavirus.

During a virtual meeting with fellow House Democrats, progressive organizations and others, Pressley complained about the administration’s actions saying, “it’s akin to war crimes” and called to “reject any calls to return to normal.”

The Washington Times reports:

“So as far as I’m concerned, what’s happening with this administration, it’s akin to war crimes — criminal negligence, science denials, a sluggish response,” she said without elaborating further.

Pressley also said there is “systemic and structural injustice” and that the coronavirus “disproportionately bore by black and brown communities is no surprise to anyone on this phone.”

The participants called for far-left policies to be included in future coronavirus relief policies.

Breitbart reports:

The demands by left-wing members of Congress include a guaranteed income for individuals and families for an extended period of time; universal health care; debt forgiveness; and housing guarantees.

Critics hit back at Pressley on social media.

Pressley’s comments accusing President Trump and his administration of war crimes are irresponsible and reckless.

Democrats are exploiting the coronavirus to advance their radical political agenda.
