Ernst: Obama ‘Failed’ On Ebola, Trump Is ‘Stepping Forward’ On COVID-19

CNN’s Dana Bash interviews Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst (R)

During an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union this morning, Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst (R), who criticized President Obama in 2014 for exhibiting what she called “failed leadership” on Ebola, was asked by CNN’s Dana Bash if Donald Trump is exhibiting “failed leadership” on the coronavirus health threat.

Note: There were only 11 confirmed cases of Ebola reported in the U.S. and 2 Americans died from the virus six years ago. At this writing, the number of American deaths from COVID-19 is just under $130,000.

Ernst’s response to the question: “I think the president is stepping forward.”
