Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Tuesday lambasted President Trump for “waving the white flag” over the handling of the resurgent coronavirus pandemic as he offered his own plan to tackle the pandemic.
“Now, it’s almost July and it seems our wartime president has surrendered, waved the white flag, and abandoned the battlefield,” Biden said, speaking at a high school in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware. “He called himself a wartime president. Remember when he exhorted the nation to sacrifice together ‘in the face of this inevitable and invisible enemy’? What happened?”
The former vice president criticized Trump for allowing states to decide for themselves on reopening, saying we need a unified response.
