In a newly circulated video Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blamed President Trump and Republican’s initial reaction for why the coronavirus outbreak has become as deadly as it has in America.

Cortez told her audience that if “President Trump took this seriously, if Republicans took it seriously” it would’ve “saved lives.”

AOC stated in her video: “Someone said, ‘Do you think if we took precautions earlier than we did, our numbers would be lower than they are now?’ Yes. I think that if Trump took this seriously, if Republicans took it seriously, um , I think that if we decided to listen to scientists early and more than people who care more about profit than lives, we would have taken precautions much earlier and we would’ve saved lives.”

“We either would have gone into lockdown earlier in some circumstances or we would have been producing these damn ventilators way earlier than we are now,” she continued. “We would’ve invoked the Defense Production Act.”

“But because Trump didn’t do that early enough, now we’re scrambling,” Ocasio-Cortez declared. “And everything that is happening is happening late. And every decision that we make late, means that people are dying unnecessarily.”

“So understand — understand that people are not just dying from the coronavirus. They are dying due to incompetence. They are dying due to poor decision making. They are dying du to a lack of listening to scientists and doctors. And they’re dying due to a crisis and a pandemic of a lack of leadership — not just because of a disease,” she asserted.

Ironically, just two weeks after Dr. Deborah Birx determined the coronavirus had been “substantially circulating within the population of New York City”, Ocasio-Cortez was preaching to Americans to go out and dine at Asian restaurants or else they are “racist.”
