- Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed Trump after he instructed his top aides to stop negotiating with Speaker Pelosi on future COVID-19 stimulus legislation until after the November election.
- “We’re already starting to see warning signs of the severe economic and health fallout that is to come. We are on the brink of an eviction crisis, a mass eviction crisis, here in our district, but also across the country, 30 to 40 million people are at risk of being evicted because the president has decided to walk away from every working person in this country,” AOC told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Tuesday evening.
- “If the president and the GOP follow through with walking away from COVID relief, we are staring down the barrel at one of the largest mass eviction crises in the history of this country since the Great Depression. That’s what we’re looking at. We’re looking at a potential second wave that could be catastrophic. We are looking at the potential of hunger in the United States exploding on a level that we have never seen since the Great Depression,” she continued.
