Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, told Fox News on Monday that Democrats are “perfectly happy to let the cities in the United States burn,” if it helps them win in the upcoming presidential election.

“Democrats want to play politics instead of actually providing the capital necessary to start businesses,” Roy told “Fox & Friends.”

“We’re trying to work hard to get through this pandemic, get our economy started, keep the American people safe,” he added.

Roy said that Democrats have politicized the response to the coronavirus in an attempt to sway voters in the general election.

"What we are seeing in Washington is frankly appalling. I gave a floor speech last week talking about this, where we have seen a politicization of a virus, the politicization of defending the rule of law. We are seeing a Democratic Party that refuses to stand with law enforcement," he said.

"You are seeing what is happening across this country when Democrats are in charge of cities,” Roy continued. “When we are allowing people to get murdered and businesses to get burned all because of Democrats' cynical ploy to try to oppose the president of the United States. Perfectly happy to let the cities in the United States burn, not do anything about the virus and point fingers at the president."
