WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (MA-07) today issued the following statement regarding the news that President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for COVID-19:
“COVID-19 is a brutal disease. Thousands of Americans have been deeply impacted by this virus. Thousands more have lost their lives. It didn’t have to be this way.
“My heart is with every family gripped by the fear, uncertainty and grief of this pandemic and the failed White House response. I certainly hope the Trump family and White House staff make a full recovery. Every day I’m fighting for critical legislation and funding to support the teachers, healthcare workers, janitors, and grocery store workers, and other essential workers on the front lines in my district. Every family deserves access to health care and relief in the midst of this crisis.”
