WATCH: Romney accuses Trump of lack of leadership “it’s a great human tragedy”

Appearing on CNN, Utah Republican Senator Mitt Romney accused Trump of a lack of leadership during the pandemic.

“Well, this hasn’t been the focus of his rhetoric, apparently, and I think it’s a great human tragedy, without question,” Romney said. He added the “extraordinary loss of life is heartbreaking — and in some respects unnecessary.”

“Not all respects, but we’ve relaxed our standards as individuals,” Romney continued. “Some states haven’t had mask mandates. And from Washington we have not had a constant, consistent plan and plea for people to wear masks, to social-distance, to take all the measures that would reduce the spread of this disease.”
