On Friday, Senator Schumer insinuated President Trump is to blame for lack of availability of coronavirus test kits in the U.S.

The statement from Schumer came in response to a tweet by the President, where he suggested it was changes that Obama made during his presidency that “complicated things further.”

Trump tweeted, “For decades the @CDCgov looked at, and studied, its testing system, but did nothing about it. It would always be inadequate and slow for a large scale pandemic, but a pandemic would never happen, they hoped.”

He added, “President Obama made changes that only complicated things further. Their response to H1N1 Swine Flu was a full scale disaster, with thousands dying, and nothing meaningful done to fix the testing problem, until now. The changes have been made and testing will soon happen on a very large scale basis. All Red Tape has been cut, ready to go!”

Upon seeing the President’s tweet, Senator Schumer replied, “President Trump is once again trying to blame the previous administration for the number of tests available.”

“This is his #DailyLie,” he continued. “Enough, President Trump. Stop trying to deflect blame and just get to work. Prioritize health and safety and get a handle on testing NOW.” See Below

Sen. Schumer Responds To President Trump

Congressman Dan Crenshaw took note of both tweets from Trump and Schumer and indicated that both politicians should only be pointing their fingers at the FDA, who have had “stringent regulations long in place.”

“It’s not Obama’s fault and it’s not Trump’s fault,” Crenshaw declared. “We have stringent FDA regulations, long in place, that created barriers to the private industry creating a test quickly.”

“This obsession with scoring political points is downright gross,” he added.

In an earlier tweet, Crenshaw commented on the delay in coronavirus tests more specifically,  where he urged the public not to expect to receive a test “on demand”, although testing is improving daily.

Also on Friday, Rep. Crenshaw took on Joe Biden, who suggested walls and travel banning “will not stop the coronavirus.”

We leave you with that exchange.
