Biden Attacks Trump During Coronavirus Press Conference

2020 presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden held a press conference today to outline his plan on how he would handle the coronavirus outbreak if he was president.

Biden made his announcement from Wilmington, Delaware, following President Trump’s coronavirus national address last night.

The teleprompter speech went beyond laying out a proposed plan on handling the coronavirus, with Biden wasting no time targeting President Trump, calling his plan a “colossal” failure.

“This virus laid bare the severe shortcomings of the current administration,” said Biden.

Biden also called President Trump’s travel restrictions “xenophobic.”

It didn’t take long for Biden’s critics to weigh in on social media, including highlighting his opposition to travel restrictions on China.

Tim Murtaugh, Trump campaign communications director, said President Trump “acted early and decisively,” and “His every move has been aimed at keeping Americans safe, while Joe Biden has sought to capitalize politically and stoke citizens’ fears.”

Biden, like many Democrats, is trying to exploit the coronavirus crisis for political gain.

Instead of politicizing the coronavirus, Biden should be preparing for his upcoming debate with Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt).
