President Donald Trump held a roundtable discussion with senior citizens called ‘Fighting for America’s Seniors’ on Monday.

Over 45,500 residents and staff have died from coronavirus outbreaks at nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, according to published reports.

House Republicans on the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis sent letters to Democratic state governors requiring answers to send positive Wuhan coronavirus cases to nursing homes in an effort to ensure hospitals had space.

Said Ranking Member Steve Scalise (R-LA):

“The decision of several governors to ignore federal protocols and instead mandate COVID positive patients be forced back to their nursing homes ended up being a death sentence for tens of thousands of our nation’s most vulnerable citizens,” Scalise said.
