Trump: “HEARTLESS” Democrats Blocked Coronavirus Aid & Stimulus Payments

VIDEO — Trump Fights Back in Fiery CPAC Speech

( President Donald Trump blasted the Democrats as “heartless” on Twitter this week, taking left-wing lawmakers to task over their refusal to negotiate the next round of coronavirus relief in good faith.

“Democrats are ‘heartless,’” he said. “They don’t want to give STIMULUS PAYMENTS to people who desperately need the money, and whose fault it was NOT that the plague came in from China.”

President Trump was specifically focusing on Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the angry, far-left lawmaker who was recently caught on camera breaking lockdown rules by getting her hair done at a salon. Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer repeatedly refused to negotiate with the Republicans on the aid package and slipped in a series of left-wing policy measures in the hope that the Republicans would pass them due to the urgency of the stimulus payments.

Senate Democrats blocked a $300 billion aid bill put forward by the Republicans.

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also slammed the Democrats for their political game-playing, saying that “Every Senate Democrat just voted against hundreds of billions of dollars of COVID-19 relief.

“They blocked money for schools, testing, vaccines, unemployment insurance, and the Paycheck Protection Program. Their goal is clear: No help for American families before the election,” he added.

Democrats were pushing for a $2 trillion package that contained a series of measures with no relation to the COVID-19 outbreak and relief. Republicans put forward a bill that gave people urgent relief while they battled out the various other policy measures in the meantime, but the Democrats wouldn’t even do that.

Conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro recently argued that the Democrats would rather people suffered financially in the run-up to the November election so that President Trump could be blamed. Doesn’t sound like such a crazy idea, does it?
