Biden Claims Trump Is Not Doing Enough To Combat Coronavirus, Then Plagiarizes His Plan

Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden is critical of how President Trump is handling the Coronavirus and had his own video press conference to address the nation on what he would do differently.

“The administration’s failure on testing is colossal and it’s a failure of leadership, planning, and execution,” Biden said during a campaign event in Wilmington, Delaware per PJ Media. “This virus laid bare the severe shortcomings of the current administration.”

Come to find out, he wouldn’t do anything different.

Biden then listed several actions he would take as president to curb the spread of the Coronavirus. Many of these actions Trump has already taken as president, including quarantines and cancellations.

From the report:

Joe Biden said “no efforts should be spared” to get private labs and universities working to rapidly expand testing for coronavirus. Congratulations Joe, President Trump did this weeks ago when he ordered the FDA to allow hundreds of private labs and academic hospitals to rapidly begin testing for coronavirus.


Joe Biden also said that small businesses will need relief from the economic impact of the coronavirus. Congratulations, Joe, Trump literally called for $50 billion in liquidity to small business owners a day prior to Biden’s remarks and has asked Congress for even more relief.

The former vice president also said insurance companies should waive copays for coronavirus testing, which is a good idea. And guess what? Trump already did that, too, as well as getting commitments from providers to expand their coverage include treatment for the coronavirus in their plans.

And:

Think Biden was done ripping off President Trump’s actions and presenting them as his own ideas? Nope. He added that we need to “accelerate” the development of a coronavirus vaccine. Hey, guess what happened in January while Democrats were all focused on impeachment? The Trump administration fast-tracked the development of a vaccine with the goal of clinical trials to begin within months.

Echoing what pretty much all experts have been advising for weeks now, Joe Biden also advised Americans not to go to work if they’re sick, to wash their hands (duh), and to avoid large public gatherings… which Trump advised Americans to do last month.

President Trump and Tim Murtaugh, the communications director for the Trump campaign, quickly criticized Biden for the remark.

Murtaugh said Biden lacks the experience and record to speak on public health issues like the Coronavirus.

“In the past, Joe Biden has shown terrible judgment and incompetence in the face of public health issues,” Murtaugh said per PJ Media. “The Obama White House had to publicly apologize for and clean up after Biden when his irresponsible remarks caused panic during the swine flu outbreak in 2009. Just weeks ago, he was openly critical of President Trump’s early move to restrict travel from China to the United States in response to the coronavirus – a decision which medical experts agree helped impede the spread of the virus to this country.”

The communications director also slammed Biden’s “vile conspiracy theory that the President purposely allowed the coronavirus to spread.”

“In times like this, America needs leadership and Biden has shown none,” Murtaugh continued. “President Trump acted early and decisively and has put the United States on stronger footing than other nations. His every move has been aimed at keeping Americans safe, while Joe Biden has sought to capitalize politically and stoke citizens’ fears.”

It is also being reported that Biden is fundraising off of the Coronavirus, bolstering his campaign funds as people are dying.
