Nancy Pelosi and Bill Deblosio were the ones who were telling people to go ride the subway and go about their business all the way up to the middle of March. But of course most people won't see that. Now those same people want to arrest people in certain states for going out on their own property. But of course everyone wants to slam Trump instead. BTW the democrats want to give money to Iran and illegals instead of the American people. Your stimulus money is in jeopardy. imagine that dumb democrats.
