Sanders on Coronavirus: ‘First thing We Have Got To Do… Shut This President Up’


Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said during the Democratic debate Sunday night the most important he would do to tackle the spread of coronavirus and save Americans lives, whether he becomes president or not would be to “shut this President up right now.”

“First thing we have got to do, whether or not I’m president, is to shut this President up right now, because he’s undermining the doctors and the scientists who are trying to help the American people,” Sanders responded when asked the first question of the Democratic debate in Washington D.C. “It is unacceptable for him to be blabbering with un-factual information, which if confusing the general public.”

The coronavirus dominated the start of the Democratic debate, with Sanders ripping President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden laying out his plan to contain the outbreak.
