Cordero died in July following a three-month battle with the disease, during which he had to have his right leg amputated and received a temporary pacemaker. Amanda Kloots shared her husband’s battle with fans on social media.
In an emotional post on Instagram this week, Kloots called out President Donald Trump.
Kloots posted a screengrab of the tweet to Instagram and wrote, “There is no empathy to all the lives lost. He is bragging instead. It is sad. It is hurtful. It is disgraceful.”
“To all the over 208,000 Americans who lost loved ones to this virus – I stand by you, with you, holding your hand,” Kloots wrote. “Unfortunately it did dominate our lives didn’t it? It dominated Nick’s family’s lives and my family’s lives.”
She said not everyone who battles coronavirus spends just a few days in the hospital.
“I cried next to my husband for 95 days watching what COVID did to the person I love. It IS something to be afraid of,” she wrote. “After you see the person you love the most die from this disease you would never say what this tweet says.”
Trump was hospitalized Friday after revealing he and the first lady tested positive. He then tweeted on Monday:
