Kamala Harris on how President Donald Trump has handled the coronavirus pandemic
Verbal battles intensify as Republican and Democratic conventions approach
Democratic vice presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris blamed President Donald Trump for the severity of the U.S. coronavirus epidemic, while his supporters said he saved countless lives.
“This virus has affected almost all countries, but there is a reason why it has affected America more than any other developed country. This is due to the fact that Trump did not take him seriously from the beginning, “Harris said at a joint press conference with former Vice President Joe Biden..
“His refusal to establish testing, his change of position on issues of social distancing and wearing masks. His delusional belief that he knows everything better than the experts. This is the reason why every 80 seconds an American dies from COVID-19, “she said..
“While other countries followed science, Trump promoted the miracles he saw on Fox News,” Harris said. – When other countries smoothed the curve, he said that the virus would simply go away – I quote – as if by magic. And so when other countries opened up for business, what did we do? We had to close again “.
The White House has not yet responded to a request for comment, but in response to Harris’s statements, Trump’s campaign director for communications, Tim Murtaugh, said the president “led the country through the coronavirus crisis and restricted entry to the country from China and then from Europe, back in January “.
“Joe Biden called it xenophobia and fear-mongering. We now know that the president’s decision saved countless thousands of American lives, and that Joe Biden would not have done it. If Joe Biden were president, we would be in a much worse situation today, ”said Murtaugh..
According to Johns Hopkins University, the United States has the worst coronavirus situation in the world: the country has more than 5 million cases of the disease, as of Wednesday, more than 165 thousand people have died..
Meanwhile, GOP National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel described Harris as a left-wing extremist that all Americans should “fear”.
“The fact that Biden chose a far-left rookie senator from California showed the Americans once again that he was controlled by a left-wing crowd,” McDaniel wrote in an article on Fox News..
“Biden has proven that he is willing to bow his head to left-wing extremists at every turn, if it will help him achieve the goal of becoming president, which he has been striving for all his life,” she added..
“Rest assured, Kamala Harris is the de facto presidential nominee from her party, and that should scare all Americans,” McDaniel said, hinting at numerous speculations that 77-year-old Biden may be “too old” to complete. presidential term, and at some point will step down, as a result of which Harris will enter the Oval Office.
“She and Biden are the most extreme and ultra-left couple [running for vice president and president] in American history,” summed up the Republican leader.
