The number of cases due to coronavirus is still increasing rapidly in the US. Presently, there are over 700 thousand cases, with 37 thousand people succumbing to the virus. However, there doesn’t seem to be a concrete plan from President Trump and his administration. Although the administration is conducting enough tests, American isn’t able to flatten the curve. On Wednesday, former Vice President Joe Biden accused President Trump of throwing temper tantrums instead of showing concern for those who are struggling with the coronavirus pandemic. The criticism from Biden over Trump’s White House briefings has been on an escalating verge for the past couple of weeks.
Speaking in a virtual town hall with non-healthcare front-line workers, Biden said - “Trump likes himself to say he’s a wartime president. Well, he needs to begin to step up and act like one. While people are dying at one end, he shouldn’t harangue the press for hours. He is having temper tantrums about his authority.” Earlier this week, the former Vice President also targeted Trump over his claims that he has total authority to override state governors and reopen the country. In response, Biden tweeted - “I am not running for office to be King of America. I respect the Constitution. I’ve read the Constitution. I’ve sworn an oath to it many times. I respect the great job so many of this country’s governors — Democratic and Republican — are doing under these horrific circumstances.”
During his town hall, Biden heard from workers about the fears of their safety in the current crisis. Now the presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee, Biden claimed that President Trump was only working for his political goals rather than the human toll of the pandemic. “Ever since the pandemic hit the country, have we heard Trump offer anything close to a sincere expression of empathy for the people who are affected?” Biden asked the president from his town hall. He further continued - “Have we seen him give any signs that he grasps just how hard it will be for people to recover from this, not just economically but also physically and emotionally, as well? I hope that your stories and your bravery make him understand the situation.”
