In an interview with CNN on Tuesday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said the nation is suffering from the "Trump virus," or the results of President Trump's handling of the coronavirus.

"I think with the President's comments today, he recognized the mistakes he has made by now embracing mask-wearing and the recognition this is not a hoax, it is a pandemic that has gotten worse before it will get better because of his inaction. And, in fact, clearly, it is the Trump virus," Pelosi said on CNN.

"What do you mean when you say the Trump virus?" CNN host Wolf Blitzer asked.

"The Trump virus: if he had said months ago, let's wear masks and let’s not – let’s socially distance instead of rallies and whatever they were, then more people would have followed his lead," the Speaker said. "He's the President of the United States."

"I think a good deal of what we have suffered is clearly the Trump virus," Pelosi said.
