Maxine Waters Rips Trump For Focusing More On Dead Confederates Than COVID-19 Toll
In a scathing statement, Rep. Maxine Waters on Thursday lashed President Donald Trump’s “heartless” inaction against the coronavirus pandemic raging through several states as he instead focuses his energies on protecting statues honoring dead traitors and slaveholders.
“One would hope that the president of the United States would rise to the level of leadership that our country needs in confronting the deadly uptick in coronavirus cases in America,” the California Democrat said. “Instead, we are left with Donald Trump, an incompetent and heartless man who is more focused on saving statues of slaveholders, Confederate generals, and racists than protecting the health of living and breathing Americans.”
Waters’ older sister, Velma Moody, died last month of COVID-19.
