House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) told Breitbart News on Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is so fixated on investigating President Donald Trump that she is neglecting her responsibility to put Americans back to work.
Scalise said that Congress needs to keep its focus on rehiring Americans and holding China accountable for its part in spreading the virus, rather than constantly investigating Trump.
“She just does not seem to want to go after China,” Scalise said.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is creating a task force to look into the implications of China’s national security and economic policies for the U.S. and create legislation that will address those concerns.
Scalise said of Democrats, “As long as they have the majority and Donald Trump is in office, you can bet that they’re going to abuse those positions of power to continue attacking this president and his family instead of trying to work with him on behalf of the American people that we were elected to represent.”
