Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden made a campaign stop Monday at an early polling location in the Philadelphia suburb of Chester, Penn., where he said President Donald Trump had given up on the war on COVID-19.
“Mark Meadows went on television to admit to the country that the administration wasn’t even trying to deal with the pandemic,” Biden said. “Trump called himself a wartime president in a war against an invisible enemy… well, he waved the white flag,” Biden said.
Biden went on to allege that Trump, “either doesn’t have any idea what to do, or he just doesn’t care.”
The number of U.S. COVID-19 cases has spiked in the last two weeks to more than 300,000 new cases reported in the past four days. The United States leads the world with 225,300 deaths and 8.64 million cases since the virus was first reported.
