Americans find themselves living in a once-in-a-lifetime economic and public health nightmare over the Chinese coronavirus.
Meanwhile Democrats are looking to turn it into a political advantage.
But President Trump just slammed Nancy Pelosi with these five words.
To help out small business owners during this difficult time, President Trump signed the Paycheck Protection Program to dole out loans so they could keep employees on payroll during the government-imposed lockdowns.
When the $350 billion program ran out of money, President Trump called on Congress to approve another $250 billion.
But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused.
First she wanted to add a number of Democrat wish list items to the legislation, holding small business owners hostage in the process.
Trump ran out of patience with Pelosi and called her out with two separate posts on social media.
The President began by slamming Pelosi as a pawn for the radical Left saying, “You are a weak person.”
Crazy “Nancy Pelosi, you are a weak person. You are a poor leader. You are the reason America hates career politicians, like yourself.” @seanhannity She is totally incompetent & controlled by the Radical Left, a weak and pathetic puppet. Come back to Washington and do your job!

President Trump went on to call out Democrats for their obstruction and urge Congress to act and approve an extension of this critical program.
“Democrats are blocking additional funding for the popular Paycheck Protection Program. They are killing American small businesses. Stop playing politics Dems! Support Refilling PPP NOW – it is out of funds!” President Trump wrote.
Speaker Pelosi believes since she’s a Democrat she can get away with playing politics while people’s livelihoods are at stake because the media will never hold her accountable.
But President Trump believes Americans will remember this moment when they head to the polls in November.
What are your thoughts? Will Speaker Pelosi and obstructionist Democrats pay a price for holding small business owners hostage?
