I always pray for the president and his family that they’re safe,” said Pelosi during an appearance on MSNBC on Friday. “This is tragic. It’s very sad. But it also is something that, again, going into crowds, unmasked, and all the rest, was sort of a brazen invitation for something like this to happen,” she added.In a letter sent to Pelosi, Banks said her remarks were “insensitive” and that it sounded like she was suggesting Trump deserved to get coronavirus.“The insinuation that anyone would deserve to contract COVID-19 is offensive and shameful, and it’s especially insensitive to every single American whose family member or friend has perished because of this illness. That’s why we are writing to request you apologize to all those who have been directly affected by this devastating virus,” said Banks.Banks was asked on “Fox and Friends” Tuesday morning if he had received a response from Pelosi.“Well, of course not. I have not heard back from Speaker Pelosi and I don’t expect to. She hates the President so much that she’s gone so far to insinuate that anyone who picks up the coronavirus has been irresponsible. That deserves an apology to the American people,” said Banks.House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) also criticized Pelosi’s remarks, arguing she should focus on negotiating an additional coronavirus relief package that can pass both chambers.
