Schumer rips Mulvaney over ‘Orwellian’ coronavirus remarks
Schumer argued in a statement that the Trump administration had “learned nothing from the Chinese government’s failure to quickly and transparently combat the coronavirus.”
“President Trump and his team have to stop blaming everyone but themselves, focus less on political rallies and more on solutions to combat the spread of coronavirus,” he added.
The Trump administration’s efforts to combat the virus are coming under increasing scrutiny. The virus has been contained in the U.S. thus far, but health officials have said that its spread is likely. The World Health Organization on Friday increased its coronavirus risk assessment to “very high.”
