Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of the former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, says he holds President Donald Trump entirely responsible for the 200,000 deaths from COVID-19.
During an appearance on ABC’s “The View” on Tuesday, Chelsea was asked, “How much do you blame [Trump] and his response? Or the lack thereof?”
“I blame him pretty fundamentally,” she responded. “I think it’s unconscionable that he lied to the American public about Covid. That he’s continued to lie to the American people. That he has such a blatant disregard for public health.”
She alluded to a portion of journalist Bob Woodward’s new book “Rage” that shows Trump knew far more about COVID-19 and the threat it posed as early as February and adopted a strategy of downplaying the threat of the virus during the early weeks of the outbreak.
She continued, “I blame him, full stop. I also blame him for all he’s not doing now to help prepare for when the scientists have proven a vaccine is safe and effective at scale. I blame him for not marshaling a real effort to build public confidence and demand for a vaccine that is proven safe and effective.” – READ MORE
