Democratic Party Presidential candidate Joe Biden, who was out on the stump recently in Wilmington, Delaware ratcheted up his attacks on President Donald Trump, charging him for dereliction of duty.
The former Vice President said Mr. Trump has failed “to protect the American people” from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mr. Biden argued that the president has retreated from his responsibility to manage the crisis and is continuing to cost American lives and “wreck our economy.”
“Donald Trump is in retreat. Remember back in March … we talked about the need to act like we were at war with the virus. He called himself a wartime president … What happened?” Biden asked rhetorically.
“Now, it’s almost July, and it seems like our wartime president has surrendered, waved … the white flag and left the battlefield,” said Biden.
In his criticism of the president, Biden also put out his updated plan, which he believes could help save lives.
“It is a plan to save lives in the months ahead. Once again — I encourage him to adopt this plan in its entirety. This is too important for politics,” Biden said.
Biden’s updated plan includes the following: a more focused approach to testing; effective and efficient distribution of personal protective equipment (PPE); accelerating the development and distribution of a COVID-19 vaccine; a strategic reopening plan that emphasizes worker safety; and a greater focus on protecting older Americans and other high-risk populations.
“Mr. President, the crisis is real. The crisis is real, and it’s surging, Mr. President. Your promises and predictions and wishful thinking, pulled out of thin air, are not only doing the country no good, they’re making them lose even more faith in their government,” Biden said.
