Biden: Trump Has "Surrendered" To Coronavirus; "It Didn't Have To Be This Way"

|

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden blasted President Donald Trump for being "in retreat" and having "surrendered" to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"He called himself a wartime president. Remember when he exhorted the nation to sacrifice together... Our wartime president has surrendered," Biden said Tuesday in Delaware. "What happened? Now it's almost July, and it seems like our wartime president has surrendered -- waved the white flag and left the battlefield."


JOE BIDEN: Donald Trump is in retreat. Remember, back in March, when I called -- and he called -- he talked about the need to act like we were at war with the virus. He called himself a wartime president. Remember when he exhorted the nation to sacrifice together and, quote, in the face of this inevitable and invisible enemy. What happened? Now it's almost July, and it seems like our wartime president has surrendered, waved the white flag and left the battlefield. Today we're facing a serious threat, and we have to meet it. We have to meet it as one country. But the president gives no direction. And he pits us against one another. We can't continue like this. Half recovery, and half getting worse. We can't continue, half wearing a mask and half rejecting science. We can't continue half with a plan and half just hoping for the best. We won't defeat this virus with a piecemeal approach.
