Hillary Clinton Takes Aim at Trump Over Response to Coronavirus Outbreak

Share

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has not been a huge fan of President Donald Trump in the past. Now, she is especially not a fan of how he is handling the coronavirus situation.

The former first lady tweeted, “I know this is all hard for you, [Donald Trump], so let me spell it out.”

She continued by listing things she believed Trump should be doing in order to combat the coronavirus.

This is not the first time the president has received criticism from the former secretary of state. Clinton appeared on CNN where she explained how she believes Trump has had some “missteps” in the past.

According to Clinton, the president has taken some steps that could hurt the economy. She said she believes his focus on his base has contributed to his “missteps.”

The criticism comes shortly after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) unveiled legislation that includes some of the provisions Clinton listed, including paid sick leave and free testing, as IJR previously reported.

Clinton is not the only one who has come forward to criticize Trump for his response to the coronavirus situation. Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) appeared on “Jimmy Fallon Live” late Wednesday where he shared his opinion.

“Why don’t you do your job! Pay attention to the needs of the American people. Don’t worry so much about the Democratic primary,” Sanders said, as IJR previously reported.

Trump took the time during his address to the nation to discuss provisions that the government will be taking in response to the crisis. Among those include suspending travel from European countries to the United States.

Coronavirus cases continue to rise in the U.S. The number of known cases reportedly surpassed 1,200. At least 38 people with the virus have died. Additionally, over 53,600 recoveries have occurred globally, according to a global database maintained by Johns Hopkins.
