Maxine Waters: Trump more concerned about Confederate statues than coronavirus
By John Bowden - 06/25/20 04:57 PM EDT

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) took aim at President Trump on Thursday, saying he is more concerned with protecting Confederate monuments than halting the spread of the coronavirus.

In a lengthy statement issued by the congresswoman's press office, Waters excoriated the president, calling him "an incompetent and heartless man who is more focused on saving statues of slaveholders, Confederate generals, and racists, than protecting the health of living and breathing Americans."

“The United States remains the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, with more than 2.4 million cases and more than 124,000 deaths. My home state of California, Arizona, Texas, and Florida have seen their coronavirus cases skyrocket in the past two weeks," Waters continued.

"On Tuesday, Texas and California set records for having more than 5,000 coronavirus cases in a 24-hour period, and 33 states have reported a spike in their weekly average of coronavirus cases. Instead of using the full power of his office to fight this deadly pandemic, Donald Trump would rather ignore the coronavirus and call in U.S. marshals to confront protestors who are taking down memorials to racist Confederate generals and slaveholders," she said.
