McCollum Statement on Trump Coronavirus Executive Orders

August 8, 2020
Press Release

Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement today after President Trump issued a series of executive orders related to the coronavirus pandemic:

“Since January, President Trump and Republicans in Congress have never missed an opportunity to allow the effects of the pandemic and economic crisis to fester and inflict terrible misery on the American people. These executive orders are another irrational distraction – an unconstitutional act that only delays and deprives critical aid from millions of families, schools, and local governments providing essential services. With 5 million infected Americans and confirmed intelligence reports of Russia and others working to re-elect Trump, it appears this White House is actually trying to undermine the stability of our nation at a time of extreme peril rather than negotiate a solution with Democrats.”
