Coronavirus pandemic is getting out of hands with every passing day. Started in China, the virus has now been spread to over 190 countries, with a total of 433 thousand cases worldwide. The first case of the Coronavirus in the US was confirmed. In February. However, President Trump didn't take the necessary steps to control the spread. A month later, the US has over 55,000 cases, with 785 deaths and counting. On multiple occasions, President Trump and his administration claimed that they would control the virus, but that did not happen.
Former Vice President Joe Biden blasted Trump for his inability to act on time and control the spread of the virus. Biden released a video from his official Twitter handle, targeting Trump about his false claims. The video titled "Donald Trump has failed the American people" has over 1.7 million views as of now. The video gives a sneak peek into the timeline of the statements made by President Trump on COVID - 19. The video starts with Trump saying - "Could have been stopped, could have been stopped pretty easily if we had known earlier. If everybody had known about it several months before people started reading about it," in his press briefing on March 19th.
The video gradually goes back in time, showing all the statements by Trump on the Coronavirus Epidemic. Here's everything Trump said :
On January 22nd: "We have it totally under control. It's one person. It's going to be just fine."
February 2nd: "We pretty much shut it down coming in from China."
February 7th: “I just spoke to President Xi last night, and you know we are working on the problem, the virus.”
February 26th: “We are going to be pretty soon at only five people, and we could be just one or two over the next short period of time.”
February 27th: “It's going to disappear. One day, it's like a miracle; it will disappear.”
March 10th: “We are prepared, and we are doing a great job with it. It will go away. Just stay calm; it will go away.”

Clearly, from the above statements and video, President Trump knows about the Virus in January itself but failed to act. We need a President who acts swiftly and safeguard the people of America. We need Joe Biden to be the President.Dr. Dhillon Randeep
