In response to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows saying on CNN that the White House is “not going to control the pandemic,” DNC War Room spokesperson Eduardo Silva released the following statement:
“The White House chief of staff just admitted out loud what has long been Trump’s strategy on the coronavirus: wave the white flag and surrender as Americans continue to suffer.
“It doesn’t have to be this way. Many other countries have been able to successfully combat the coronavirus because they listened to scientists and came up with a strategy. But Trump refuses to lead, and as a result, America has just hit another record-high number of new cases, over 220,000 Americans have lost their lives, and millions are struggling to make ends meet. The American people deserve better than a president who gives up in the face of crisis.”
