Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), said that President Donald Trump “minimized” the severity of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus pandemic, avoiding that she criticized and interfered with Trump’s initial actions against the epidemic.

President Trump suspended commercial flights from China to the United States on Jan. 31 to prevent the spread of the CCP Virus, even against WHO guidelines, and Pelosi criticized this action at the time, according to Townhall on Sept. 9.

After her initial criticism, she changed her story and accused Trump of initially refusing to act to counteract the effects of the CCP Virus. “This is such a very, very sad time for us so we should be taking every precaution. His denial at the beginning was deadly,” Pelosi said, according to NBC News on March 29.

In making these criticisms, Pelosi does not seem to have considered that on Feb. 24, she promoted tourism in Chinatown.

The video was deleted from the site where it was posted, but Trump’s campaign attached it to one of his tweets. On this occasion, in addition to assuring that everything was very safe, neither Pelosi nor her companions used face masks to prevent cross-contamination.

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace asked Pelosi about this event when he interviewed her in April. “If the president underplayed the threat in the early days, Speaker Pelosi, didn’t you as well?” Wallace asked.

“No, what we were trying to end—the discrimination, the stigma—that was going out against the Asian American community,” Pelosi responded.

For Townhall reporter Beth Bauman, Pelosi not only criticized Trump’s actions but interfered with them. “A bipartisan, bicameral agreement was made on a Wuhan coronavirus (CCP Virus) relief package, and what happened at the last hour? Pelosi came in and blew it,” Bauman wrote. She added, “Instead of focusing on relief for Americans across the country, she was hellbent on pushing a far-left agenda.”

Pelosi presented herself as an advocate for Americans’ needs according to her statements on Sept. 9, despite all the above criticism and interference.

Pelosi said that Trump “minimized” the severity of the CCP Virus pandemic while mentioning the families who will be evicted for not paying their rent, even though the president signed an executive order prohibiting such evictions.
