Elizabeth Warren’s newest brainstorm is to take funds from Border Wall construction to pay for Coronavirus efforts.
If you haven’t noticed by now, Democrats are gambling American lives to try to score political points.
This sounds like a great plan.
Let’s just forego the wall’s construction and let everyone in.
Then Coronavirus will be sure to rip this country to shreds as more illegals flood in to finish the job.
Here’s the latest from Kristinn Taylor:
The media has been accusing President Trump and his supporters of falsely claiming Democrats are weaponizing the coronavirus against President Trump.
Sorry. No data so far.
Trump's new conspiracy theory is that Dems/media are weaponizing coronavirus against him.
This needs to be seen as part of a broader effort to render the opposition and mediating institutions illegitimate.

Right on cue, Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (MA) announced Thursday morning she will be filing a bill to strip President Trump’s border wall of funding and transfer the money, estimated at $10 billion, to fighting the coronavirus.
Using her Senate account, Warren tweeted about the bill, saying, “Coronavirus poses a serious health, diplomatic, & economic threat, & we must be prepared to confront it head-on. So I’m introducing a bill to transfer all funding for @realDonaldTrump’s racist border wall to @HHSGov & @USAID to combat coronavirus.”

United States Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions, today unveiled legislation, the Prioritizing Pandemic Prevention Act, requiring all funds that have been appropriated to build a border wall-including funds directly appropriated by Congress and funds diverted by the executive branch from other accounts-to be immediately transferred to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) for the purpose of combatting the novel coronavirus.
“The coronavirus outbreak poses serious health, diplomatic, and economic threats to the United States, and we must be prepared to confront it head-on,” said Senator Warren. “Rather than use taxpayer dollars to pay for a monument to hate and division, my bill will help ensure that the federal government has the resources it needs to adequately respond to this emergency.”
Currently, more than 81,000 people have contracted the coronavirus, which is highly communicable and has killed approximately 3,000 people. The World Health Organization has declared the outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern, and HHS Secretary Alex Azar has declared it a public health emergency in the United States. In addition, officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently announced that Americans should “prepare in the expectation that [a U.S. coronavirus outbreak] will be bad” and stated that “it’s not so much a question of if this will happen…but rather…a question of…when.”
In the midst of this potential pandemic, President Trump has failed to direct significant financial resources to his coronavirus response. His Fiscal Year 2021 budget, released just weeks ago, proposed decimating the HHS budget, including CDC’s, and the President has requested that Congress reprogram funding dedicated to fighting Ebola to coronavirus. The president also requested a mere $1.25 billion in emergency supplemental appropriations to combat the virus-an amount that received bipartisan opposition-and his administration is reportedly transferring $37 million to coronavirus efforts from the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, which funds heating for poor families. Meanwhile, the Trump Administration has continued to request funding for a wall on the southern border.
While emergency supplemental appropriations are not typically offset, the Prioritizing Pandemic Prevention Act would provide a down payment of an estimated $10 billion in funding for coronavirus efforts by redirecting funds from border wall funding at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Defense (DoD) counterdrug and military construction funding previously diverted for wall construction, including any unobligated balances of such funding from fiscal year 2019….

The Democrats hate Trump so badly that they have turned Coronavirus political and are betting American lives in the process of doing so.
- Hah! Three Reasons They Can’t Blame Trump for the Coronavirus Response
- Evil: Pelosi and Schumer Block Coronavirus Funds
- Obama Appointed Judge Blocks Trump Admin From Keeping Coronavirus Contained in California
- Trump outraged that his order to leave coronavirus-infected Americans in quarantine aboard luxury liner IGNORED as they were flown back to the USA, cross-infecting other air passengers
Incompetence happens but it’s painfully obvious that Democrats intend to play politics with Coronavirus, thus putting all of us at risk.
These people all need to be gone.
Policies are one thing.
Deliberately betting the lives of my family, and yours, is criminal.
Lock them ALL up.
