Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) said Thursday on MSNBC that President Donald Trump should be investigated and prosecuted for his “dangerous criminal neglect” in the corona-virus pandemic. “As you know I lost my father on June 16, he was in Kenya but came to the United States thinking he would be safer here.” ” My father should be here today.” They are not here because our leaders do not care about their lives.”
Anchor Yasmin Vossoughian, said ” Sticking with all that has happened especially beginning with what we learned from the president and how he said COVID was like the flu, it wasn’t going to kill people the was it has. Now over 300,000 people are dead in this country in the last ten months. The holidays are approaching, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers wont be sitting at the dinner table because they died of COVID-19. Representative Clyburn said today, telling my colleague Chuck Todd their could be a independent commission inside of the Biden administration. Is that something you support?
Omar said, “I do. As you know I lost my father on June 16th. I remember my dad was in Kenya. He came back into the United States when COVID hit because he thought he would be safer here. I know that my father and over 300,000 people have lost their lives to COVID because of dangerous criminal neglect by Trump and his administration. I agree with Clyburn that it is not enough for us just to issue subpoenas. We have to investigate and prosecute these people responsible for these reckless deaths.”
” It does not make sense that this is a reality in this country. This could have been avoided. It can be avoided. There are people who are responsible, and we cannot forget about that when the next administration is sworn in, and they are in charge of what happens next.”
