President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden spoke briefly by telephone on Monday about his government's response in handling the coronavirus pandemic. President Trump's slow response has been criticized widely in the political spectrum of the United States, as the issue is quickly becoming the defining factor to the race for the White House in 2020 elections. Speaking about the phone call, Biden Deputy Campaign Manager and Communications Director Kate Bedingfield said - "former Vice President Biden and President Trump had a good conversation over the call. Biden suggested several measures and actions for Trump administration to address and fix the ongoing virus outbreak in the United States."
In his White House press briefing on Monday, Trump confirmed publicly that he spoke with the Vice President and termed the call as "a warm and wonderful conversation." Trump further added - "We pretty much talked about the coronavirus pandemic. That's what everyone is talking about. Biden gave me his point of view about the virus outbreak and I fully understand his points. The conversation went probably for 15 minutes and it was really good. It was really nice. I also appreciate him for calling." Earlier in the day, both of them attacked each other on Twitter. Trump dissed former Vice President by accusing him of suggesting Democrats might hold the presidential nominating convention online due to the coronavirus pandemic. From his official handle, Trump wrote - "Joe Biden wanted the date for the Democrat National Convention moved to a later time," Trump wrote in a tweet. "Now he wants a 'Virtual' Convention, one where he doesn't have to show up. Gee, I wonder why?"
Biden quickly shot back with his response, "Mr. President, I hope we can gather in Milwaukee, but that is going to depend on you stepping up and doing what needs to be done to handle this pandemic." He also suggested that the Democratic party seriously needs to consider hosting a virtual convention instead of a regular event as the conference has already been postponed from July to August.
Mr. President, I hope we can gather in Milwaukee, but that is going to depend on you stepping up and doing what needs to be done to handle this pandemic. I have laid out how you can do that: https://t.co/YLHCGEKnUB. Happy to discuss anytime. https://t.co/ePQuQKkeZV— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) April 6, 2020
