‘Completely Appalling’: Ilhan Omar Slams Trump’s Response to Coronavirus Outbreak

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is shifting her tone on President Donald Trump’s response to the coronavirus outbreak.

Shortly after Trump announced his approach to the coronavirus crisis which includes sending direct payments to Americans and utilizing the Defense Production Act, he received a positive response from Omar, as IJR previously reported.

“Politics aside, this is incredible and the right response in this critical time,” Omar tweeted.

More recently, Omar has returned to being critical of the Trump administration.

“He still continues to not recognize the role that he’s supposed to be playing when it comes to leading a nation that is facing a pandemic,” Omar said.

Listen to her comments below:

She explained how the administration has failed the American people by downplaying the crisis and failing to ensure there is enough testing.

She also claimed he has not utilized the Defense Production Act, which is responsible for accelerating the development of resources for medical personnel.

Omar pointed out the supply shortage states are facing including a lack of ventilators, masks, gloves, and gowns.

She criticized Trump for being narcissistic and failing to pay attention to the issues at hand.

“The level of incompetency and narcissism… is completely appalling. We want him to pay attention, lead, be honest, not be so focused on pointing fingers, and just do his job,” Omar said.

Omar is not the only one who has been critical of Trump for his rhetoric and approach to the pandemic.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) criticized Trump for his denial of the seriousness of the pandemic at the beginning, calling it “deadly.”

  1. Ah, the Muslim that married her brother to sneak him into the country speaks. She’s under investigation for election fraud. A typical Democrat that’s a Trump hater. Hopefully, MN voters will get rid of her.

  2. This Pandemic has opened Pandora’s Box and released the true evil players involved with the Socialist Democrat Party. Nothing is safe from them in wanting to get their power back and destroying America as we know it. God Help Us.

    1. I vividly recall and can produce examples of the Dims downplaying and opposing the president’s efforts. This includes calling his shutdown of flights from China “racist”, their opposition to using malaria drugs, and their delaying relief bills by adding BS GND and progressive goals which had NOTHING to do with relief.

    1. 2. The Defense Production Act, first used under the socialist FDR, allows government to dictate (the magic word) to private industry like ANY good socialist would want.

      Tell me again how the literal commands of a bureaucrat will be more knowledgeable OR more productive than the efforts of those in private industry.

    2. 3. There’s this thing called “federalism”, which is built into the Constitution. q.v. personal responsibility.

      Either the idiot Left wants Trump to be a dictator or they do not. He has given freedom and responsibility to the individual states. That some governors are now crying “help me big government” betrays their weakness and lack of responsibility.
