Barnes said: “I can say that he is a long way from doing the best job. “It is just a disregard for not only the will of the people, but also the needs of the people. I think that’s what frustrates me the most, whether it’s providing relief and support to middle-class families, whether it’s the continued denial of climate change, is it the pandemic denial and some of the very silly proposals he makes or not. in the past few years. “

If not, she said, “we can run and we’ll probably run a billion dollars worth of ads by 2024. And it won’t matter.”
