Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard denounced the partisanship surrounding the coronavirus pandemic on Capitol Hill Thursday, saying it was time to put the American people first.
“This continues to be a problem, unfortunately, where partisanship is getting in the way of just delivering what the American people need right now, especially as our country faces this crisis,” Rep. Gabbard, D-Hawaii, told “Your World” guest host Charles Payne.
“Now is not the time for politics,” Gabbard said. “Now is the time for leaders to step up, stand together. We are all in this together and to put the health and well-being of the American people above all else.”
Earlier Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., announced that the Senate would remain in session next week as lawmakers work toward passing legislation to deal with the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.
