The video, titled “Unfit,” features clips of the president in interviews and press conferences assuring the country that the administration is “totally prepared,” and claiming “anybody who wants a test can get a test,” contrasted by clips of business closures and medical shortages.

Critics of the administration’s response to the virus have argued that the president's messaging regarding medical supplies such as COVID-19 test kits and ventilators has been inconsistent with reporting from health officials and compiled data. 

“Anecdotally, I can tell you that in the last 24 hours, I have spent over 10 hours attempting to have an elderly relative tested for COVID-19 in Polk County, Florida, to no avail,” Horn added. “Trump’s unbridled ignorance, narcissism and gross incompetence have put our nation — and my own family member — at great risk. Americans can no longer remain silent.”

As of Tuesday morning, more than 189,000 people have been confirmed as having the virus worldwide and more than 7,000 have died, according to the Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering. In the U.S., more than 5,100 cases have been confirmed and 91 deaths have been reported, according to Johns Hopkins.
