During a press conference on Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said President Trump is like “a man who refuses to ask for directions” by not listening to the advice of scientists to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.
NANCY PELOSI: So much happening. Yesterday was two months since we passed the HEROES Act, as some of you are aware who were with us as we observe that. Calling upon the president to activate the Defense Production Act so that we can get the equipment we need. The president has made so many bad executive decisions. We wish he would make a good executive decision and do that.
Observing his behavior, I have concluded that he is like the man who refuses to ask for directions. All of the answers are there. The scientists have the answers. We know that testing, tracing, treating, distancing, masking, sanitation can stop the spread of this virus. And yet the president continues to go down the wrong path and refuses to ask for directions from scientists who know better than any of us.
