THANKS DEMOCRATS....We Couldn't Have Done It Without You....

Pelosi vs. Trump on the Virus Crisis                             Thomas Gallatin · Apr. 20, 2020

The speaker accused Trump of being a failed "weak leader," even as she obstructs aid.
A renewed war of words erupted over the weekend as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused President Donald Trump of being a “weak leader” who “doesn’t take responsibility” for his supposed “failure.” Pelosi spread her bile across several media interviews in which she was critical of Trump’s handling of the China Virus crisis — especially his plan for reopening the U.S. economy. She insists that he can’t open the economy “based on falsehoods” and that his plan endangers Americans.

Furthermore, Pelosi attempted to move the goalposts for reopening the economy away from an attempt to “flatten the curve” of COVID-19 infections to the development of “a cure” and a “vaccine.” “I don’t know that anybody can give you a timeline,” Pelosi stated, adding, “We’re prayerful that there will be a cure soon, that there will be a vaccine. That will take longer. That’s really the answer. And it is, again, the sooner we commit to shelter in place across the board, testing, shelter in place, treatment, contact tracing — that’s the path to opening the economy and putting people back to work.” In other words, Pelosi wants to keep the economy shut down as long as possible. There is, after all, an election to win.

In reality, Pelosi has been entirely uninterested in ensuring that Americans and their jobs are preserved during the economic shutdown she is pushing to extend indefinitely. She and her fellow congressional Democrats blocked Republican attempts to add $250 billion to the Paycheck Protection Program that ran dry on Thursday. It appears that Pelosi’s definition of good leadership is that which most benefits those in power at the expense of those being governed.
