Trump's claim that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is to blame for the stalled COVID-19 stimulus legislation is not accurate
Newswise

President Donald Trump has repeatedly blamed the U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for "not caring about Americans" since she would not agree to his terms for COVID-19 relief aid. We rate these claims as mostly false because they are misleading. According to the New York Times, Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the majority leader, told Republican senators privately on Tuesday that he has advised the White House not to strike a deal with Speaker Nancy Pelosi on a new stimulus bill before Election Day.

This claim is entirely false. Despite President Donald Trump calling him a "disaster," Fauci has not been indicted. There is no news coverage to support this claim, nor any original, credible documents or sources to corroborate it.
