WATCH: Pelosi claims Trump showed his “contempt for the American people”

During a press conference, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blamed President Trump for “many deaths.”

Pelosi said Trump’s “delay, denial, and distortion of what was happening has caused many deaths”

She continued “What the president did, in those comments, showed his contempt. Contempt for the American people and their health. Contempt for science. Contempt for any real effort to crush the virus. Contempt for his supporters, their children, their parents.”

One Twitter user replied “How many deaths happened after you told everyone to come to Chinatown in the heat of a pandemic?”

Another wrote “We remember you, Pelosi…” and shared the video of Pelosi’s Chinatown comments.
