Pelosi Calls Coronavirus The ‘Trump Virus’


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) branded the coronavirus the “Trump virus,” saying in an interview with CNN that President Trump’s failure in handling the pandemic is the reason it has “gotten worse.”

“Well, I think with the President’s comments today, he recognized the mistakes he has made by now embracing mask-wearing and the recognition this is not a hoax, it is a pandemic that has gotten worse before it will get better because of his inaction,” Pelosi said Tuesday evening on CNN’s ’The Situation Room.’ “And, in fact, clearly, it is the Trump virus.”

“Well, what do you mean when you say the ‘Trump virus?’” CNN host Wolf Blitzer asked.
