Pelosi Will Hold Coronavirus Aid Hostage To Her Agenda

The media’s coverage of President Trump’s coronavirus response has been universally negative. But House Speaker Pelosi using the crisis to extract Republican concessions while holding coronavirus aid hostage?

That’s awesome. Politico can hardly restrain its gloating.

Speaker NANCY PELOSI, once again, has extraordinary leverage over President DONALD TRUMP and the White House. One Republican put it to us this way: PELOSI has TRUMP over a barrel.

HERE’S WHY: TRUMP and his White House are the public faces of the fallout over the deadly virus rippling across the nation, and he needs PELOSI — his nemesis — to cut a deal, and pass a bill. The U.S. just surpassed 1,000 confirmed cases as of Tuesday night.
