Democratic vice presidential pick Sen. Kamala Harris on Wednesday blamed President Donald Trump for the severity of the coronavirus outbreak in the United States, saying Trump is “delusional” and failed to take the virus “seriously from the start.”
“This virus has impacted almost every country, but there’s a reason it has hit America worse than any other advanced nation. It’s because of Trump’s failure to take it seriously from the start,” Harris said. She spoke in Wilmington, Delaware, during her first joint appearance with former Vice President Joe Biden since she became his running mate Tuesday.
“His refusal to get testing up and running, his flip-flopping on social distancing and wearing masks, his delusional belief that he knows better than the experts — all of that is the reason and the reason an American dies of Covid-19 every 80 seconds,” she said.
This is what we need right now, a no-nonsense street brawler to take the fight right to Donald Trump and then leave his battered and bruised.
Trump calls himself a “counter-puncher” but what he really is is a bully who typically attacks people who cannot, or will not, fight back.
Kamala Harris has spent her career dealing with criminals and lowlifes, nothing Trump says or does is going to intimidate her one little bit.
And what is more, she has the facts on her side.
