Trump: Pelosi trying to create panic

United States President Donald Trump accused Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi of trying to create panic in the country, referring to her earlier comment suggesting that the president doesn't know what he is talking about when it comes to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Trump stressed joint work in mitigating the effects of the virus is needed instead of attacking him in his efforts to combat the epidemic. He went on to urge Pelosi to focus on "cleaning" California's 12th congressional district, which she currently represents, calling her "incompetent."

The president went on to condemn United States Senator Chuck Schumer for suggesting that the Administration's request for $2.5 billion for fighting the coronavirus is not enough and that they should have demanded $8.5 billion. Trump said this is the first time the Democratic party is criticizing him for not asking for enough money, adding he is willing to accept more.
