Klobuchar: Trump’s Handling of the Coronavirus Is the ‘Exact Opposite’ of What He Should Be Doing

Former Democratic presidential hopeful Amy Klobuchar is voicing her opinion of President Donald Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, and it is not a positive one.

Klobuchar appeared on “The View” on Tuesday with her husband who tested positive for the coronavirus and has since recovered, as IJR previously reported.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg asked Klobuchar’s husband how he felt about what he was hearing from the Trump administration. He explained it is necessary to follow the advice of scientists and doctors.

Klobuchar chimed in referencing Trump’s recent controversial coronavirus treatment suggestions.

“So many people watch the president, he’s the leader of our country. And when you see him, whether he’s joking or not, literally looking at people and saying, basically implying oh you can chug bleach or you know maybe we can inject some light into you,” Klobuchar said.

She added, “That is the exact opposite of what a leader should be doing.”

Watch her comments below:

Trump first mentioned the idea of using disinfectant and light injections as treatments of the coronavirus during a White House Coronavirus Task Force press briefing last week, as IJR previously reported.

He later clarified his comments, claiming he meant them to be sarcastic.

Klobuchar went on to list the things she believes is missing from Trump’s plan to combat the coronavirus including testing, protective equipment, and national leadership.

“That’s what the problem is right now. It’s not only what he says, which we can rant and rave about all we want, it’s also what he hasn’t done,” Klobuchar said.

She closed the exchange reiterating testing is something the administration should be focusing on.

“You’ve got to have a national testing strategy and get those national tests out to every state in the country,” Klobuchar said.

Her comments come just a week after Congress and the White House came to an agreement on a nearly $500 billion coronavirus relief package, which includes $25 billion for a national testing plan.

  1. Amy, you are a loser. Feel free to sit in the corner and shut up. You are irrelevant.

  2. Sooooo, she criticizes Trump. “Co-host Whoopi Goldberg asked Klobuchar’s husband how he felt about what he was hearing from the Trump administration. He explained it is necessary to follow the advice of scientists and doctors.” Well, obviously they didn’t. Blame no one but yourself, dummies.

  3. Is Trump responsible for your husband catching the kung flu? Of course we could expect criticism of Trump’s successes from a Dementia Party loser. Ignore and move on.

  4. That loser have any advice? Democrats have done nothing but tdy to establish new commissions.
    The View itaelf is a joke.

  5. It matters not what Pres. Trump has done. The last president to warn America about being prepared was George Bush in 2005. At the point in time that Pres. Trump created the travel ban, little was known about this virus. He had great foresight to close the borders. His responses were exactly what they should have been given that this was unprecedented. The Trump haters and the left as a whole will find fault even if he came up with a cure. We, the people see the truth and certainly don’t need to be spoon fed this constant menu of hatred and criticism. and my question to the critics…really, what would have or could have been done differently ?

  6. he is doing exactly what the experts ask him to do. look at the know nothing telling every doctor scientist and expert they are stupid
