First Lady Melania Trump was savaged by hundreds of angry never-Trumpers after she addressed the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. On Twitter, her critics accused the First Lady of staying quiet about the issue while much of the population is panicking.
Mrs. Trump tweeted, “Our great country is fighting hard against the #Coronavirus. This nation is strong and steady and we will overcome. Please take action to prevent further spread.”

It only took a few moments for angry critics to question her sincerity.
If you care at all about the well being of the people your husband serves. Then tell him we need more testing for the virus. 8 test conducted by CDC in one day is not enough. We need accurate testing. Be your best and do what is right. Demand covid-19 test be made available now.

Y’all screwed this up, you were building tennis courts and playing golf when it should have been all hands on deck, this is on Trump, you and the administration.

Where was this weeks ago? All I heard was blaming Democrats. Testing is needed and we are behind the 8 ball. The blame rests squarely on trumps.

So far, coronavirus has resulted in the President declaring a National Emergency. In addition, several states have declared emergencies within their own borders, as well. Large cities such as Los Angeles and New York City have taken additional steps to prevent the spreading of the virus, including the closing of all public schools and the closing of restaurants and stores.
At this time there are well over 3,500 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the US and over 60 deaths. The Trump Administration is taking measures to prevent further spreading and urging the general public to engage in social distancing. Meanwhile millions of Americans have been ordered to work from home until further notice.
