“Blaming President Donald Trump for a problem that four Presidents and several Congresses have tried to solve for twenty years does not make Americans safer. Instead of pointing fingers, Democrats and Republicans should be working together. Already the United States is testing twice as many people as any other country and is developing new vaccines faster than at any time in our history.”
