Ilhan Omar praises Trump's 'incredible' response to coronavirus pandemic

Ilhan Omar Minnesota Democratic Rep.  unexpectedly praised President Donald J Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic on Wednesday night, saying it was “incredible and the right response in this critical time.”

Omar was reacting to a post by The Intercept’s Lee Fang, who noted: “Trump suspending contract abandonments, requesting money installments to Americans, presently summoning the Defense Production Act to constrain private firms to deliver required supplies is mind blowing. Sort of a shell stun for any individual who gave an account of any monetary arrangements in the Obama years.”

She said ‘‘Politics aside, this is incredible and the right response in this critical time”.

Replying to one of the comments she said ” always says, unprecedented times require unprecedented leadership and we are seeing that in our country right now. I have faith that we will survive this as a nation and build together.

Concluding that we should never let politics stand in the way of right poilcies

”Finally, we should never let politics get in the way of good policy. This is a great start and hope others will be part of a united front to push for good policies that will help us work through the economic anxiety the country is feeling right now.”
