De Blasio: People will die because Trump ’will not lift a finger to help’

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio accused Trump of inadequate response to the coronavirus pandemic, stating that more people will die if the president doesn’t take more action. ’...it is only getting worse. And in fact, April and May are going to be a lot worse,’ the mayor said, adding that Trump’s refusal to invoke the Defense Production Act for the medical equipment hospitals will worsen the situation.

Says the guy who has completely lost control of his city. Cuomo, who hates Trump (& vice versa), has EXPLICITLY said that Trump has given the state everything that they asked for. It's all crap & when most everyone in your citcity ends up suffering, it will be because YOU didn't act soon enough.

Trump is acting on the Coronavirus but the reality is more people are still going to die from the Coronavirus. The best we can do is minimize the damage.

What the hell is trump supposed to do? They have been saying they are working on a vaccine but you can't really isolate the virus and expect miracles. Some people have no common sense whatsoever.

Yes, I'm sure Trump is just hiding the cure in a safe somewhere. He's probably responsible for Italy as well. Pathetic. 🙄

@Carol You are the kind of person that screams he has too much power but now the incompetent mayor's like Duh Blasio are whining you say Trump should do more. If Duh Blasio needs help he goes to the Governor next, not straight to the president. It is NOT the job of the president to take care of the little fires.

You know I’ve actually seen crazy leftist people on FB claim that Trump made the virus and let it out to cause chaos and harm his enemies as revenge for “trying to impeach him.” 🤪

Did anyone think this president would change? He will only "help" himself; what does it take for you idiots that voted for him to see the"fruits of his life" through the works that he's done over his lifetime?

Evil Senate Democrats are the ones who want Americans to die. They voted against the stimulus bill. Never forget that Democrats will play political games with your lives.

Back in JANUARY when Trump was putting together a task force to look at Coronavirus options, the Dems were busy impeaching him. Not saying his early response was good, but Pot meet Kettle.

He is calling for military, which has already happened btw. But it should mainly be the new York national guard. The problem is you elect a morons to be Mayor you can't expect good results. Cuomo is not great but at least, he's not a moron. https://nypost.com/2018/05/29/the-way-de-blasio-runs-new-york-shows-he-could-care-less/

I think people are confused at what the President of the United States of and what he can do. People expect then to be perfect and have answers for everything. They don't have complete control, and they're still people. The Republicans had the same unrealistic expectations with Obama.

And then they'll pat themselves on the back for 'convincing' Trump, after actions are taken to control the spread and implements public safety measures all while blaming Trump for the damage
