Biden Slams Trump for Claim About Issues With Coronavirus Testing

Share

Former Vice President Joe Biden is accusing President Donald Trump of misleading the public about the coronavirus outbreak.

However, he said he doesn’t want to question the president’s motives, but will question his judgment. 

“I learned a long time ago, never question a person’s motive, but you can question their judgment,” Biden said during an interview on CNN on Tuesday afternoon. “And his judgment is that many of things he’s said simply are not accurate.”

“Like, yesterday he was talking to a bunch of governors on the telephone, and he said the first time he heard about needing more tests was on that telephone call,” Biden said.

He continued, “Well, come on, I mean I don’t know where he’s been. He’s standing at the podium every single day, speaking to all of his experts. We badly need more tests.”

“So, the things he says don’t seem to comport with what everybody else knows. And I wish he’d listen more to the scientists and think less about the political consequences,” he added.

Additionally, Biden cited Trump’s claim that he is a war time president to criticize the response to the coronavirus, “The President says he’s a war time president. This is a war against this virus. He should act like a war time president. He should have someone else in charge with him making sure all these things get implemented.”

Biden’s comments come after audio from a phone call Trump had with governors was released where Trump was heard saying, “I haven’t heard about testing being a problem.”

While the U.S. has ramped up testing across the country, several governors in recent days have said that there is still not enough testing being done to being able to get a handle on the outbreak in their states.
