Florida Democratic Party Statement on U.S. Surpassing 200,000 Coronavirus Deaths

The United States passed the grim milestone of more than 200,000 lives lost to coronavirus. The U.S. has 4% of the world’s population, but 20% of the world’s coronavirus deaths. In response, the Florida Democratic Party chair Terrie Rizzo released the the following statement: 

“As we mark another tragic milestone in the coronavirus pandemic, we mourn with those who are grieving a loved one. Tragically, our loss did not have to be so great. President Trump knew this would be a deadly pandemic, but ignored the warnings and refused to prepare us for a threat experts saw coming — and we are seeing the heartbreaking consequences of his continued inaction. A president’s ultimate job is to protect the people, and Donald Trump failed. We must hold him accountable in November.”
