A Statement by Congressman Brian Higgins In Response to President Trump’s Recorded Comments About COVID-19
“As COVID-19 began its assault on Americans’ lives, President Trump knew of its severity. He secretly stated as much to (veteran Washington Post journalist) Bob Woodward.
“But publicly the President downplayed the very dangers he knew Americans faced.
“While his Administration stonewalls Congressional oversight, the President seems free to conduct many interviews that totally contradict things he tells the American public and reveal how little regard he has for the impact his job has on the lives of those he was elected to serve. Put simply: the President lies. With impunity. And these lies are costing American lives.
“Nearly 4 years along, we’ve come to expect this type of egregious behavior from this chaotic and unprepared President – but we cannot willingly accept it. We must demand better. The President lied and because of it Americans died – 190,478 people and counting, gone forever.”
