Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wants President Trump to do more to help Americans during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
On Thursday, Clinton took to Twitter to share a policy she would be enacting if she were leading the White House.
Clinton said: “Let’s try this again, Trump. Hospitals are already running out of ventilators and beds. Nurses are using bandanas as masks. If you’ve already ordered more with the Defense Production Act, tell us now.”
“If you haven’t, you’re failing to lead and failing Americans,” she added.
Let’s try this again, @realdonaldtrump:
Hospitals are already running out of ventilators and beds. Nurses are using bandanas as masks.
If you’ve already ordered more with the Defense Production Act, tell us now.
If you haven’t, you’re failing to lead and failing Americans.

Clinton also swiped the president, without specifically naming him, in another tweet asking for additional coronavirus tests. Mainstream media has reported that state governors and local officials are running out of coronavirus tests.
“Where are the tests?” the former first lady asked in a tweet contrasting the number of people tested for the coronavirus in South Korea to the United States.

While Clinton’s allies supported her criticisms of the president, many others condemned her for them.
If we tested early… If Trump hadn't disbanded the pandemic team…we could have avoided the inevitable Great Depression pt 2.
Hillary Clinton would have been prepared for this. If she were leading, the curve might be flattened by now but hate won. Fear won. Misogyny won.
