Responding to President Trump’s unfounded assert that 99% of coronavirus cases are “completely harmless,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo criticized him for “enabling the virus.”
“What he’s declaring to the American individuals is that there is certainly no issue. And then they don’t have on a mask, and they really don’t socially length, and hey never acquire any precautionary actions and then the virus goes like this,” Cuomo explained. “He is facilitating the virus. He is enabling the virus by [making] statements like that. And you happen to be looking at the infection rate go up and you are viewing the economy suffer.”
“He is section of that current debacle that we are in,” he additional.
The governor cited President Trump’s many prior statements about the Covid-19 that have been established incorrect and his refusal to put on a mask to say that the President wishes to “deny the Covid virus.”
“He will never dress in a mask. Vice President Pence claims, ‘wear a mask.’ All the health officers say, ‘wear the mask.’ He won’t don a mask mainly because he doesn’t want to acknowledge that there is a Covid virus. Why? I have no idea,” Cuomo extra.
Cuomo additional that the way to fight coronavirus is by initially admitting that there is a challenge.
“You will by no means resolve a problem in existence that you refuse to admit. Why he refuses to acknowledge it I have no plan. You have a White House coronavirus activity drive. Why have a process pressure if there’s no difficulty?”
