In Wilmington, Delaware, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Tuesday slammed President Trump’s disastrous response to the pandemic, calling him a “wartime president” who’s surrendered to the coronavirus.
Joe Biden: “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 the government. America knows this crisis isn’t behind us, even if you don’t.”
Biden called on everyone to wear a mask to slow community spread of the coronavirus. He fended off a reporter’s question about the state of his mental health.
Doug McKelway: “Have you been tested for some degree of cognitive decline?”
Joe Biden: “I’ve been testing, and I’m constantly tested. Look, all you got to do is watch me. And I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against. Thank you so much.”
