Trump’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic has been far from exemplary. Many political leaders are criticizing Trump’s response as America keeps grueling under the pressure of the rising Coronavirus cases. Nancy Pelosi, the House Speaker, gave her interview on Fox News Sunday and has brazenly called Trump a weak leader. She gave her an F regarding his leadership quality.

According to her, “Leaders — leaders take responsibility. So I said he’s a weak leader. He doesn’t take responsibility. He places blame — blame on others. And that might have been OK before, but we cannot continue down a path that is, again I’ll come back to science, science, science, evidence, data on how we should go forward.”

Pelosi is skeptical about Trump’s plan to reopen the states. However, Dr. Anthony Fauci – the director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases says with enough testing, the first phase could work out fine. 

Pelosi has recently promised that, despite the little snags, Congress will try to reach a proper agreement and add 250 billion dollars to the program which provides loans to small-scale businesses. Many Republicans, along with Trump, had criticized Pelosi for delaying this program and refusing to add funds into the Paycheck Protection Program.
