MACON, Ga. -- The College Democrats of Georgia held a roundtable discussion on the impacts of President Donald Trump and Governor Brian Kemp’s "failed response to COVID-19 and its effects on their collegiate school year."
The organization consists of representatives from universities and colleges across the state.
Students took aim at President Trump saying because of his "mismanagement of the pandemic", colleges have already experienced high numbers of students testing positive for the virus and case spikes in college towns. That includes over 800 new cases in the last week at the University of Georgia, Governor Kemp’s alma mater.
The roundtable session was held over Zoom and included students from colleges and universities across Georgia.
"Brian Kemp and Donald Trump's complete failure to manage this virus, has set our country and students around Georgia back," said one Georgia college student.
"When our leaders are saying it doesn't matter, then we can't hold students accountable in that sense. So, I do agree that students do have an individual responsibility but we also are being ignored by the leaders of the state and the national government to implement these as well," said another.
