Vice President Biden today said President Trump’s “uncoordinated” response to the coronavirus is responsible for last week’s record unemployment claims.
“The harsh reality is that at least 3 million people now don’t have jobs because our president didn’t do his job when it mattered,” Biden wrote.
He said that while Trump is not responsible for the virus itself, “he bears full responsibility for the slow and uncoordinated response.
“Nearly every country is facing this pandemic — but not every country has responded the same way,” Biden said. “South Korea, among other steps, deployed intensive testing and contact-tracing measures to slow and control the spread of the virus. Donald Trump didn’t do that. He didn’t get ahead of it when he had the chance. And in the absence of an early, aggressive response to flatten the curve, cities and states have been left with no option other than extreme social distancing measures, causing businesses to close and lay off workers.”
Here’s the latest slurry commentary from the bunker.
