WATCH: Bernie on Coronavirus “the first thing we have got to do…is to shut this president up right now”

Asked what he’d do as President to help Americans amid coronavirus, 2020 candidate Bernie Sanders answered “Well, the first thing we have got to do, whether or not I’m president, is to shut this president up right now.”

Sanders continued:

What we have got to do, is move aggressively to make sure that every person in this country finally understands that when they get sick with the coronavirus, that they will — that all payments will be made. They don’t have to worry about coming up with money for testing. They don’t have to worry about coming up with money for treatment.”

But right now, in this emergency, I want every person in this country to understand what when you get sick, you go to the doctor. When you get sick, if you have the virus, that will be paid for. Do not worry about the cost right now. Because we’re in the middle of a national emergency. … So we need unprecedented action right now to deal with the unprecedented crisis.
