Pelosi Hammers Trump And DeVos For Messing With The Health Of Kids

Published by

Speaker Pelosi said that Trump and Betsy DeVos are guilty of malfeasance and dereliction of duty for trying to unsafely force kids back to school.

Speaker Pelosi said on CNN’s State Of The Union after Betsy DeVos refused to say that it is safe for kids to go back to school:

Trump and his supporters try to frame the issue as black and white, either schools are opened or closed, but there is a smarter way to open schools safely that Trump and his administration are ignoring. It involves lots of testing, PPE, and enforcing safety measures.

Speaker Pelosi is right. Trump has learned nothing and is making the same mistakes as he is pushing to schools to open because he thinks it will help him politically even as he endangers kids.
