An elected official responsible for ensuring the Democratic Party passes legislation in the House accused the Trump administration of preventing financial relief from reaching struggling Americans.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has blamed the White House for preventing the next CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus stimulus package from passing through Congress before the upcoming election on Nov. 3.
“For a long time now, congressional Democrats have laid out a strategic plan to crush the virus,” she said in a statement. “The White House and Mitch McConnell have resisted.”
Pelosi accused White House chief of staff Mark Meadows of negligence even though she has been unwilling to settle for anything less than the $2.2 trillion package she wants to spend according to the Democratic Party’s wishes.
“We are not going to control the pandemic,” she said of Meadows.
Pelosi also suggested the Trump administration thought the pandemic did not exist, even though she referenced remarks from President Donald Trump that were actually about the Democratic Party-led impeachment inquiry.
“From ‘hoax’ to hundreds of thousands dead, the White House has failed miserably—not by accident but by decision,” she said. “Now we know why they resisted science at the expense of lives, livelihoods, and the life of our democracy. Again, it was a decision to do so.”
Instead of accepting blame for repeatedly ordering House Democrats to block previous stimulus packages, Pelosi decided to congratulate her fellow party members for a job well done.
“This week, we continue to put pen to paper, with thanks to our committee chairs for their mastery of the legislation and loyalty to America’s working families,” she said. “Thank you for your leadership for the people.”
The president previously postponed talks with House Democrats on the stimulus package after learning they intended to use the money to bail out Democrat-ruled states instead of helping struggling businesses and households that were impacted by economic restrictions to help contain the deadly disease.
“Nancy Pelosi is asking for $2.4 trillion to bail out poorly run, high crime, Democrat states, money that is in no way related to COVID-19 [CCP Virus],” he said on Twitter. “We made a very generous offer of $1.6 trillion and, as usual, she is not negotiating in good faith.”
The president promises a much bigger stimulus package after he wins another four years in public office.
“Immediately after I win, we will pass a major stimulus bill that focuses on hardworking Americans and small business,” the president said on Twitter.
