The Democratic Whip of the U.S. House of Representatives, representing Maryland's 5th Congressional District.
Our nation reached a devastating milestone yesterday with 100,000 Americans dying from COVID-19, & we know a disproportionate number were African American. Dems will continue demanding data to better understand the disparities & ensure they are addressed.
Marylanders deserve full transparency on our state’s COVID-19 testing plan. I urge @LarryHogan to publicly release his plan to target resources to the hardest-hit communities in MD.
If you read Rep. @RashidaTlaib ’s comments, it is clear that President Trump and Congressional Republicans are taking them out of context. They must stop, and they owe her an apology.
China’s expulsion of American journalists is an attack on the freedom of the press and especially dangerous when people around the world need safe, credible information about the coronavirus pandemic. I strongly condemn this decision.
