Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden attacked the president Donald Trump On Thursday, for ignoring the dangers of the Coronavirus, he blamed him for thousands of avoidable deaths and pledged a coordinated national confrontation with the pandemic if elected.
Biden said in an interview with (CNN): “He knew that, and did nothing … it is close to a crime.”
Biden explicitly rejected Trump’s suggestion that a coronavirus vaccine might be available within only weeks, warning Americans that they could not trust what the president said in this regard.
“The idea that there will be a vaccine and that everything will be fine tomorrow is not logical,” Biden said during a conference (CNN) in Mosaic, Pennsylvania.
Trump had said again on Wednesday that a vaccine for Covid-19, the disease caused by the Coronavirus, may be ready for distribution before the November 3 elections.
Most health experts, including Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said it is likely that the vaccine will not be widely available until mid-2021.
Trump accused Biden of publishing an “anti-vaccine speech,” while Biden assured that he would listen to scientists, not the president, regarding vaccine safety. (Reuters)
