THE TONE DEAF DEMOCRATIC DEBATE, PRESIDENT TRUMP’S BOLD LEADERSHIP, DEMS POLITICIZE THE CORONAVIRUS

Last night’s debate proved Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are two sides of the same extreme coin:

  • Biden repeatedly touted his and Obama’s response to the swine flu, but the facts show that Biden completely mishandled that response:
    • As Vice President during the 2009 swine flu outbreak, Biden ignored the advice of scientists and made reckless comments that caused mass hysteria.
    • The Obama White House had to immediately issue an apology for Joe Biden’s remarks and the alarm he caused.
  • Bernie Sanders is using the coronavirus outbreak to push his radical socialist agenda:
    • Sanders has taken advantage of the crisis to argue for “Medicare for All.”
    • Bernie’s Medicare for All plan, and Biden’s public option plan, would place thousands of rural hospitals at risk of closure.
    • Both Biden and Sanders’ plans would kick 180 million Americans off their private health insurance plans, dramatically raise taxes, and force Americans to pay for health care for illegal immigrants.
  • Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are committed to raising taxes on all Americans and destroying our economy.
  • Joe Biden is a giant hypocrite on campaign finance reform:
    • Biden wants a constitutional amendment to publicly fund elections, but his campaign is funded by millions of dollars from Super PACS.
  • Joe Biden is an open borders extremist:
    • Biden supports unconstitutional sanctuary cities, proudly saying undocumented immigrants arrested by local police should not be turned over to immigration officials.
    • Joe Biden promised that in his first 100 days, no one will be deported.
  • Joe Biden once again lied about his record of trying to cut entitlements:
    • Joe Biden called for cuts to social security for years while serving in the United States Senate.
  • Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders proudly defended their lifelong commitment to pro-abortion policies—showing zero concern for the millions of unborn lives that have been killed as a result.
  • Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders’ energy policies will ruin American energy independence and cost thousands of American jobs.
    • Joe Biden proudly promised no more and no new fracking.
    • Joe Biden said he supports taking millions of automobiles off the road.
  • Joe Biden defended Obama’s comments praising the Cuban dictatorship’s progress on education and healthcare.
  • Joe Biden said he’d compare his foreign policy record against Bernie Sanders any day of the week.
    • Obama’s Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Biden has been wrong on nearly every foreign policy issue over the last 40 years.
  • Joe Biden once again lied about his adamant support for the war in Iraq that costed thousands of precious American lives and trillions of dollars.

President Trump has mobilized the full resources of the federal government to respond to the coronavirus:

  • President Trump has taken unprecedented actions in response to the coronavirus:
    • Declaring a national emergency in response to the coronavirus:
      • This action enables states and territories to access over $42 billion in funding to combat the virus.
    • The Small Business Administration made over $7 billion in loans available to qualifying small businesses for economic assistance.
    • Waiving interest on all student loans held by the Federal Government.
    • Directing the Department of Energy to purchase large quantities of crude oil for the strategic reserve.
    • Empowering the Secretary of Health and Human Services to waive provisions of certain laws and regulations and give maximum flexibility to healthcare providers to care for their patients.
    • Partnering with the private sector to open up drive-through testing collection sites in critical areas impacted by the coronavirus.
    • Working with Google to develop a website Americans can go to determine whether a test is needed and, if so, facilitate testing at a nearby location.
    • FDA issued emergency authorization for new commercial coronavirus tests that will help significantly expand testing across the country.
      • Up to 2 million additional tests are expected to be available next week thanks to these efforts.
    • HHS announced it is providing funding to help accelerate the development of two rapid diagnostic tests.

Democrats are lying about President Trump’s coronavirus response:

  • Lie: “President Trump called the coronavirus a hoax.”
  • Fact: President Trump called the politicization of the coronavirus a hoax.
    • Joe Biden earned four Pinocchios from the Washington Post Fact Checker for spreading a manipulated video of President Trump calling the coronavirus a hoax.
  • Lie: “President Trump cut CDC funding.”
  • Fact: CDC funding has gone up every year during the Trump Administration.
    • Including funding for agency’s primary program to help state and local governments during emergencies like the coronavirus outbreak.
  • Lie: “State and Local officials are critical of the Trump Administration’s coronavirus response.”
  • Fact: Democratic Governors have praised the Trump Administration’s response.
    • California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom on President Trump: “He said everything I could have hoped for, and we had a very long conversation and every single thing he said, they followed through on.”
  • Lie: “President Trump has done nothing to stabilize the economy.”
  • Fact: President Trump is providing economic relief to workers and employers.
    • President Trump has directed the Small Business Administration to issue $50 billion in low interest loans to affected small businesses.
    • The Treasury Department is allowing affected businesses to defer tax payments.
