The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement on behalf of spokesman Christian Slater on the Trump administration saying, “we are not going to control the pandemic.” The surrender to COVID-19 comes as cases in Michigan reach new highs and doctors are warning hospitals are again reaching maximum capacity.
“Mark Meadows just admitted what Michiganders already knew: Donald Trump has surrendered to COVID-19 and is making us suffer the consequences. Now, because of that surrender, cases in Michigan are reaching record highs and hospitals are hitting maximum capacity. It didn’t have to be this bad, but from day one of this pandemic Trump has shown nothing but reckless disregard for our lives as he lied to us and attacked any measures for addressing the deadly disease. Michigan needs leaders like Joe Biden and Gary Peters who take this pandemic seriously and will take the steps necessary to get it under control.”
