He just made a big mistake.
According to Breitbart News, Sen. Doug Jones attacked President Donald Trump’s response to the coronavirus stating that Trump is “irresponsible.”
Jones’ comments came shortly after Trump tweeted, “We can’t have the cure be worse than the problem,” Trump said. “We have to open our country because that causes problems that, in my opinion, could be far bigger problems.”
WE CANNOT LET THE CURE BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM ITSELF. AT THE END OF THE 15 DAY PERIOD, WE WILL MAKE A DECISION AS TO WHICH WAY WE WANT TO GO!

“I think it was dumb of the president to say it,” Jones said on “The Jeff Poor Show.” “I’m just going to be candid about it. It was not consistent with anything the scientists are saying. It’s not consistent with anything the health care officials in Alabama, from Huntsville to Mobile — there is no one saying that except people that are losing money in their stock portfolio. It really angers me to hear the president say it. And then for people to take that as gospel because the only way — this is a health crisis. If we can get past the health crisis, we will then get past the economic crisis.”
“They are connected,” he continued. “You cannot separate those two. And it is crazy to think — this is not the meltdown of 2008 and that great recession. This is creating serious problems with the health of Americans. It is creating serious problems with people’s health worldwide. And I think those comments are just irresponsible.” You can read the full article here.
