Mayor Schieve Issues Statement in Response to President Trump

Trao đổi tuyệt đốiToday Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve issued the following statement in response to a tweet from President Trump agreeing with a false claim that Renown Regional Medical Center’s Alternate Care Site is “fake”: 

Full Statement Below:

I stand with Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak in condemning the President’s attacks on the integrity of our healthcare workers. The hardworking men and women of our medical community are giving everything they can to keep our neighbors alive.

It is abhorrent to me that anyone, let alone a president, spout lies that mock and demean patients fighting for their lives. The exceptional leaders at Renown have been forced into this unbelievable situation and I commend them for this heroic work.

This is an attack on our community as we face this unprecedented challenge. This is exactly the inhumane and cavalier attitude that has cost thousands of Americans their lives. 

My heart breaks for our families and friends who have lost loved ones. I stand with the front-line workers who have given their bodies and souls to fight COVID-19.

There are hundreds of patients fighting for their lives in Reno right now. That’s the very sad reality. 

Perhaps he should put the phone down, get off the golf cart, and come down to our hospitals and see for himself the reality which he blatantly chooses to not face.
