While our current president has struggled to give an articulate response to the coronavirus, former President Barack Obama has wasted no time expressing his gratitude to workers out on the front line of America’s outbreak.

According to Newsweek, Sunday, Obama urged leaders to step up their game when it comes to adequately supporting those who are struggling financially during the pandemic.

“Not everybody can stay home, and we owe a big debt of gratitude to health professionals, transit and airport workers, first responders, and everyone keeping our communities going,” he wrote. “Leaders have to step up to support people whose lives and livelihoods take a hit in the weeks ahead.”
