On Tuesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi penned a letter to Democrats, urging her colleagues to understand the “truth” regarding the coronavirus crisis, which included accusing President Trump of having an “incompetent reaction to this health crisis” that has caused “unnecessary deaths and economic disaster.”
Pelosi said Easter Weekend gave her time for “deeper prayer and reflection” in writing this letter.

“We will overcome this moment, but success requires one fundamental from which all actions will follow: we need the truth. To succeed in this crisis, we must insist on the truth, and we must act upon it,” Pelosi said.
“In order to move forward, we must first understand the truth of what has put us in this position,” she continued. The House Speaker then made six points she believes must be thoroughly acknowledged in order to move forward.
Pelosi’s Six Points
House Speaker Pelosi believes:
“The truth is that Donald Trump dismantled the infrastructure handed to him which was meant to plan for and overcome a pandemic, resulting in unnecessary deaths and economic disaster.

The truth is that in January Donald Trump was warned about this pandemic, ignored those warnings, took insufficient action and caused unnecessary death and disaster.

The truth is that Donald Trump told his most loyal followers that the pandemic was a hoax and that it would magically disappear, thus endangering lives and paving the way for economic disaster.
The truth is that we did not have proper testing available in March despite Trump repeatedly claiming that we did; and even now, we do not have adequate tests, masks, PPE, and necessary equipment, which creates unnecessary death and suffering.
The truth is because of an incompetent reaction to this health crisis, the strong economy handed to Donald Trump is now a disaster, causing the suffering of countless Americans and endangering lives.
The truth is a weak person, a poor leader, takes no responsibility. A weak person blames others.”

Nancy says ‘Americans must ignore lies and start to listen to scientists and other respected professionals’
Pelosi continued, seeming to insult the White House COVID-19 task force, “The truth is, from this moment on, Americans must ignore lies and start to listen to scientists and other respected professionals in order to protect ourselves and our loved ones.”
“But if we are not working from the truth, more lives will be lost, economic hardship and suffering will be extended unnecessarily and our children will not be safe, happy and learning,” Pelosi added.
“Our future will be healthy and prosperous if we no longer tolerate lies and deceit,” she stated.
