NYC Mayor De Blasio Says Americans Will Die Because Trump ‘Will Not Lift A Finger To Help’

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Sunday that Americans will die during the coronavirus outbreak because President Donald Trump was not lifting “a finger to help.”

‘It’s only getting worse’

“The truth is, and New Yorkers and all Americans deserve the truth, it’s only getting worse. April and May are going to be a lot worse. Right now, we are a third of the cases in the country. That’s going to get worse,” De Blasio said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

De Blasio: ‘If the president doesn’t act, people will die’

“We’re about two thirds or more of the cases in New York State,” de Blasio continued. “That’s going to get worse. But the president of the United States is from New York City, and he will not lift a finger to help his hometown. And I don’t get it. I don’t get it.”

The mayor went on, “Right now, I have asked repeatedly for the military to be mobilized for the Defense Production Act to be used to its fullest to get things like ventilators so people who can live who would die otherwise, I can’t be blunt enough. If the president doesn’t act, people will die who could have lived otherwise.”

“The American government is not at full bore,” de Blasio said. “The defense act has been activated. We have gotten no indication of any factory on 24/7 shifts, no shipments, and the U.S. military is at its bases and not the front lines. Respectfully, governor, we cannot be gentle about this point right this minute.”

‘I’m worried about saving lives’

“From this minute forward, our government, our federal government needs to be in this fight instead of on the sidelines,” de Blasio added. “I’m not worried about blame.”

“I’m worried about saving lives right this minute, and I don’t see the federal government at this moment,” he finished.
