“My father and over 300,000 people have lost their lives because of dangerous criminal neglect by Trump and his administration,” she told MSNBC. “I agree with Clyburn that it is not enough for us just to issue subpoenas, we have to investigate and prosecute these people who are responsible for these reckless deaths.”
Omar, D-Minn., said her father and others who have passed away from COVID-19 are “not here with us because we didn’t have leaders who cared about their lives.”
“The president, to this day, has not shown an ounce of compassion to the people who have passed away,” she added.
“My father survived so many things, for him to lose his life to COVID is devastating,” Omar said, her voice shaking.
