WASHINGTON - Massachusetts US Senator Elizabeth Warren has introduces a bill to transfer funding from construction of the border wall to fund efforts to respond to the novel coronavirus that is spreading across the world and is expected to arrive at some point in America.

"Coronavirus poses a serious health, diplomatic, & economic threat, & we must be prepared to confront it head on. So I'm introducing a bill to transfer all funding for @realDonaldTrump's racist border wall" to the US Health and Human Services Department and the US Agency for International Development, said Warren, who is vying for the Democratic nomination for president, in a tweet Thursday morning.


"Rather than use taxpayer dollars to pay for a monument to hate and division, my bill will help ensure that the federal government has the resources it needs to adequately respond to this emergency," Warren said in a statement.
