Julian Castro Calls Trump’s Coronavirus Response ‘One Of The Worst Failures In The History Of Our Country’

U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Julian Castro testifies during a hearing before the House Financial Services Committee July 13, 2016 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.

Former Housing Secretary Julian Castro appeared on MSNBC on Sunday and blasted Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, Breitbart reported.

Castro pointed to Trump’s attacks on China for initially covering up the severity of COVID-19 and suggested it was a diversion from the lack of leadership in the United States. The former Democratic presidential candidate claimed that Trump and his administration “failed spectacularly” in keeping Americans safe as the virus began to sweep the world.

“To look at The New York Times cover today, to think that we’re closing in on 100,000 deaths in this country, so many of those deaths that did not have to happen that happened because this administration was unprepared,” Castro added, referring to the publication’s decision to honor coronavirus deaths on its front page.
