Congressman Gonzalez Responds to Emergence of Tapes Revealing President Trump Withheld Critical Public Health Information
Today, Congressman Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15) issued a statement in response to the recent tapes that surfaced proving President Trump understood and withheld information about the dangers of the coronavirus from the American people for political purposes:
"How can we trust the president to lead us out of this crisis when he knowingly downplayed the gravity of COVID-19 to boost his own re-election bid? The economy has taken a massive hit, people are struggling, and almost 200,000 Americans are dead as a result. The United States desperately needs a commander-in-chief that is ready, willing, and able to unite this country and steer us back on course."
