Maxine Waters on Thursday lashed Trump’s inaction against the coronavirus pandemic as he instead focuses his energies on protecting statues honoring dead traitors and slaveholders. “We are left with Donald Trump, an incompetent and heartless man who is more focused on saving statues of slaveholders, Confederate generals, and racists than protecting the health of living and breathing American,” the California Democrat said.
