Senator Elizabeth Warren announced a bill that would use funding for President Donald Trump’s “racist border wall” to combat the coronavirus outbreak – a plan that is earning plenty of eye rolls on social media.
Warren is not letting the coronavirus crisis go to waste. The Massachusetts senator tweeted on Thursday a bill that would move funding from construction of the southern border wall in the US to the Department of Health and Human Services and US Aid to fight the disease.
The senator warned that the virus poses a “serious health, diplomatic and economic threat.” Her bill would remove “all funding” from Trump’s “racist border wall” to “combat” the disease.
The idea of lowering border security in the middle of an international outbreak and capitalizing on the disease to once again call the president “racist” has not exactly gone over well.
“So how do you control the spread if you can’t control who comes into your country, genius?” ‘Justified’ actor and outspoken conservative Nick Searcy tweeted in response to Warren’s announcement.
