Failed presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren doubled-down on her war-of-words with the Trump administration over the Coronavirus stimulus plan Wednesday night; saying the current package is “insufficient” for American workers.
“This bill provides immediate, necessary aid—but it’s insufficient. Tomorrow, we keep fighting for more aid for families, hospitals, and small businesses. And I’ll do everything I can to hold the Trump administration accountable for how it spends this $450 billion taxpayer fund,” posted Warren on social media.

President Trump weighed-in Wednesday on the national Coronavirus outbreak that has paralyzed the nation; saying American workers want to get back to work and “we will be better than ever before!”
“The LameStream Media is the dominant force in trying to get me to keep our Country closed as long as possible in the hope that it will be detrimental to my election success. The real people want to get back to work ASAP. We will be stronger than ever before!” posted Trump on Twitter.

While millions of Americans struggle to remain safe and protect their families during the Coronavirus, the question will soon become: What does life in the United States look like post-pandemic?
“Last week, I noted that when the coronavirus crisis is over, things will return to a sense of normalcy. But they will never be the same. This week, we are getting our first hints of just how much things will change. How will our society deal with an unprecedented spike in unemployment? How many restaurants will never reopen? How will children go to school and college? How will we get together with friends and family?” writes Scott Rasmussen.
“I currently live in New York City and believe that, over the past generation, it has lived up to the hype of being the greatest city in the world. But looking out my window at empty streets during rush hour, I suspect the coronavirus will be the end of New York City as we know it. It has instantly become a city of the past, a city that thrived in an era that is rapidly coming to an end,” he adds.
“The first lesson is to recognize that the coronavirus is not creating this new era. Instead, it is forcing us to recognize and respond to an era that has already begun. It is also turbocharging the pace of change. Cultural changes that would have unfolded gradually over a generation or two will now take place in just a few years,” Rasmussen concludes.

DESPERATION: Elizabeth Warren Introduces Plan to Stop the Coronavirus… By Defunding Trump’s ‘Racist Wall’
Fading presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren desperately tried to keep her failing campaign afloat Thursday by introducing new legislation that would divert funds from President Trump’s border wall towards fighting the Coronavirus.
“Donald Trump is bungling our response to the coronavirus. We need a real plan to fight back—and I’ve got one. Tomorrow, I’m introducing a plan that takes every dime Donald Trump is spending on his racist wall, and diverting it to fighting the coronavirus,” said Warren during a CNN Town Hall event.

NOT ‘GOOD ENOUGH’: Warren Says Feds Must ‘Cancel Student Debt’ to Combat Coronavirus
Failed presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren doubled-down on her demands for the cancellation of all student debt Friday; saying the federal government must eliminate outstanding loans to help fight the Coronavirus.
“This still isn’t good enough. We need to #cancelstudentdebt payments during this emergency, not pause them. And the federal government should cancel at least $10,000 for all student borrowers to help families & our economy,” posted Warren on social media.

Former presidential hopeful Kamala Harris urged the federal government to release “low-risk” inmates from prisons to avoid potential Coronavirus outbreaks in jails and detention centers across the country.
“Harris, a onetime Democratic presidential hopeful, sent a letter on Thursday to Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) Director Michael Carvajal arguing that the close quarters prisoners live in – paired with the strict measures the BOP is taking distance inmates from the public – makes them particularly susceptible to the COVID-19 virus,” reports Fox News.
“In the midst of this crisis, BOP should be taking reasonable steps to reduce the incarcerated population and guard against potential exposure to coronavirus,” Harris said. “At this time, BOP—in coordination with the U.S. Department of Justice — can and should request the release of low-risk individuals who are in pretrial detention because of money bail.”
“But instead, it appears that BOP is responding to the threat of coronavirus with extreme measures that both maintain current levels of incarceration and penalize the incarcerated community— including by suspending social and legal visitation, suspending inmate facility transfers, and potentially locking down institutions,” she added.
