Nancy Pelosi is working overtime to defeat Donald Trump.
During this Wuhan coronavirus crisis, the House Speaker is focused on playing partisan politics instead of helping the American people.
And Nancy Pelosi tried to double-cross Trump on coronavirus. This is why she failed.
Confirmed cases of the coronavirus are still rapidly increasing, but thankfully the mortality isn’t spiking like it is in countries like Italy or Iran.
Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans are working to put together a relief package in light of the Wuhan coronavirus grinding the economy to a halt.
But Nancy Pelosi is jamming up the works.
She’s using the crisis to load the bill with a Democratic wishlist.
Not only does she want drastic economic measures made permanent, but she’s also trying to sneak an abortion policy in the bill.
The startling partisan move even vexed Democrats including MSNBC host Joy Reid who tweeted:
“Wow… @kasie just reported that Republicans’ objections to the House Democrats’ emergency coronavirus bill include issues related to abortion. What does that have to do with COVID19…?”
It has nothing to do with the coronavirus, and Democrats know it.
It’s Pelosi’s latest move to cram through her leftist agenda.
Donald Trump Jr. also called out the underhanded move.
“This pretty much sums everything up: @realDonaldTrump is moving quickly to protect Americans from coronavirus and its economic impact… Democrats are spending their time trying to create an abortion slush fund!”
The Democrats’ radicalism on abortion is being exposed for all to see.
Pro-abortion people once said they believed abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare.”
Today, the only plank of that mantra they care about is legal.
Abortion activists encourage Twitter hashtags like “shout your abortion,” and celebrities promote abortion at every turn.
Multiple actresses have stated that their film and television careers couldn’t have been possible if they hadn’t aborted their babies.
In any other context, that would be considered ghoulish, but it’s celebrated in Hollywood.
Democrats also favor abortion past the point of birth; prominent Democrats like governor of Virginia Ralph Northam have argued that doctors and their patients should be allowed to let newborn babies die.
As for abortion being “safe,” former Planned Parenthood CEO Leana Wen resigned from the organization because she felt they didn’t care about women’s healthcare, only being an abortion mill.
That’s why procedures like ultrasounds, which have been shown to dissuade women from following through with abortions, are strongly discouraged by Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parent purports to be about female healthcare, but many of their facilities do nothing except perform abortions.
This is the cause that Pelosi is championing while a mysterious virus has killed nearly 10,000 people around the globe and caused unprecedented disruption in the American economy.
The cynical political move is alarming even for people like Reid, who largely agree with Pelosi’s agenda.
Now isn’t the time for partisan politics, but the Democrats didn’t seem to get the memo.
But the American people are paying attention.
