Donald Trump’s performance during the COVID-19 pandemic has not been well received by a large portion of the American public. A recent study showed that voters in every single state prefer their governor’s response to the coronavirus over that of Trump.
The White House’s response has also led many people to wonder about how the crisis would be handled right now if Hillary Clinton had been elected in 2016. The former Secretary of State took to Twitter earlier this week to blast Trump over the US’s lack of testing capability.
Clinton hit back against Trump after he criticized New York Senator Chuck Schumer. “Cryin Chuck Schumer was on a late night show using a false talking point over & over again,” tweeted the President. “‘We don’t have enough testing ,’ he would repeat, when he knows we have done a great job on Testing, just like we have on Ventilators and everything else. He lied, gave NY SALT. Run AOC!”
Trump’s former opponent wrote back, “Great job on testing? The Capitol’s attending physician said yesterday that he doesn’t have the capacity to proactively test all 100 U.S. senators when they return to Washington on Monday.”

Clinton also made a point of reminding her supporters that they can do something about Trump’s performance in November. “No makeup? No pantsuit? No problem,” she wrote. “I’ve got the must-have accessory for spring. I’m wearing a mask (and voting!) for my country, my community, and my grandchildren.”
