Trump praises Obama and Biden for stopping Zika crisis
- by admin
President Donald Trump hailed the actions of former President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, praising them as the first and last to take action to stop the spread of the Zika virus.
In an interview with The Hill published Friday, Trump said the nations leaders “did what they were supposed to do” to contain the virus.
“I think that the president and the vice president were very, very, brave,” Trump said.
“They really did what they thought was right.”
The president, however, took a shot at his former top aides and allies, accusing them of acting in a “political” way.
“They did what the Democrats and the Democrats did,” he said.
“We were not told that we had a virus, but we were told that the virus was going to happen.”
In addition to his praise of the presidents actions, Trump also noted the lack of action on Zika by Democrats, noting that the GOP did not pass any Zika-related legislation.
“It’s not like there was a Republican vote, and I think the Democrats were afraid of that,” he explained.
“There was a lot of bad-news coverage about the Democrats not doing anything.”
The vice president and Obama also took a jab at the White House for its public statement earlier this month that the outbreak was “overblown” and that “a substantial number” of cases had been identified.
“You had a very irresponsible statement that was made in the White house,” Trump told The Hill.
“And I think you should be ashamed of yourself.
