Joe Biden is being exposed by mainstream fact-checkers for his outlandish claims about President Trump and asserting that there was data that proved President Trump was responsible for every person that died from the coronavirus, according to the Daily Wire.
“If the president had done his job, had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive,” Biden alleged.
“All the people—I’m not making this up. Just look at the data. Look at the data.”
However, Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler responded to Biden’s claim by writing:
“Actually, Biden is making this up.”
“There is no data to support this, even if the president had moved rapidly in January to deal with the coronavirus and been able to persuade the Chinese leadership to be more forthcoming about the situation.”
“Even nations that have been praised for their handling of the pandemic, such as South Korea, New Zealand and Iceland, have suffered some deaths (377 in South Korea, 25 in New Zealand and 10 in Iceland).”
Politico responded to Biden’s remarks by writing he “vastly overstated what protections could have worked against the virus,” and that his remarks were “not true.”
“One study suggested that a large number of people may not have died if certain measures had been implemented weeks earlier, but the study in no way stated that earlier action would have saved ‘all the people.’ It’s worth noting that Biden held eight rallies in March while Trump only held one,” The Daily Wire reported.
“At the same time, it’s important to remember that the coronavirus spread in large part thanks to the Chinese Communist Party lying to the world about the outbreak, trying to cover it up, delaying the release of critical information, and silencing whistleblowers.”
Biden claims Trump is responsible for every single person who has died from COVID-19:

Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler highlighted in a separate report just some of the early actions that the Trump administration took to combat the coronavirus:
Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, learned on Dec. 31 of a “cluster of 27 cases of pneumonia of unknown etiology reported in Wuhan, China,” according to Katherine McKeogh, press secretary for the Department of Health and Human Services.
