Republicans Decry Nancy Pelosi for Withholding Coronavirus Aid for Political ‘Expediency’

Republican congressional candidates and Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC) told Breitbart News Saturday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) would rather see the “demise” of the country than work with President Donald Trump on a bipartisan coronavirus aid package.

Republican candidates Yvette Herrell, Derrick Van Orden, Jim Bognet, and Budd spoke to Breitbart News Saturday host Matthew Boyle as Pelosi continues to withhold coronavirus aid to small businesses and workers suffering from the effects of the pandemic.

Herrell, who hopes to unseat Rep. Xochitl Torres Small (D-NM) in New Mexico’s second congressional district, decried Pelosi’s political brinksmanship during the coronavirus negotiations.

“Nancy Pelosi just pushes it to the edge every single time, and, sadly, she would rather see the demise of our nation than stand with our president,” she said.

Herrell said that Torres Small continues to rally “with Pelosi against all of Trump’s administrative policies against bills that would help the American people, and we just can’t have that.”

She added that the New Mexico Democrat “comes to the district and acts like she’s a conservative Democrat working hard for the people of New Mexico, but they are wising up to the fact that actions speak louder than words.”
