Utah Senator Mitt Romney joins Senior Political Correspondent Glen Mills to talk about the issues of the government’s response to the pandemic, economic recovery, and police reform. Romney answered the following questions.

ECONOMY RECOVERY
How will you help people who have been devastated financially by this pandemic? What steps are necessary to get Americans back to work?

NATIONAL DEBT
The United States has spent trillions on the pandemic response and multiple relief packages, but the crisis is not over yet. Should lowering the national debt still be a priority for lawmakers?

GOVERNMENT RESPONSE
Was the government’s response reacting to the pandemic adequate? ABC4 viewer Daniel Witte asks: “If a coronavirus vaccine should be developed and approved, there will surely be a large number of people who do not trust it… Do you think it is constitutional to forcibly administer a coronavirus vaccination to those who don’t want it?”

CIVIL UNREST AND CALLS FOR POLICE REFORM
For weeks, protesters have marched streets all across the country Following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. They’re calling for justice in the form of police reform and racial equality. What led to the decision to march with protesters in DC?
