It's the federal government that allowed us to be ambushed by Cove it It's the federal government that missed that. The virus one from China to Europe, and they missed it for three months, and it's the federal government that missed People getting on planes in Europe and coming into New York. It was the federal government that those the border control at the airports was Department of Homeland Security that was supposed to be protecting the border. You know how they wanted to build the wall in Mexico? Protect the country. Protect the country. Protect the country. Yeah, meantime Cove It is walking in the door. JFK and Newark International Airport. While you're spending billions keeping us safe from Mexicans, we were invaded by Europeans with covert and you were totally asleep at the switch.
