The COVID pandemic has reached national security level with over 3.43 million contractions and 140,000 deaths in just over six months.
April Ryan spoke with Congress member Bennie Thompson (D-MS), who chairs the Homeland Security Committee, which oversees FEMA. Rep Thompson chides the White House for lack of leadership and direction which let coronavirus spin out of control, and the President for ignoring the virus and labeling Black Lives Matter protests as a national security threat.
