Biden Campaign Trolls Trump On COVID-19 Plan
Joe Biden has shown that, while he doesn’t jab with the nasty attacks Donald Trump is known for, he’s not averse to a joke at his opponent’s expense. He showed this Friday with a tweet linking to Donald Trump’s purported plan for COVID-19 recovery.
During Thursday night’s debate, Biden said that Donald Trump doesn’t have any plan for the pandemic, still, but that he, Biden, does. In fact, Biden laid out a plan back in April, originally run in the New York Times and now available on Biden’s campaign site. He pointed out Trump’s lack of plan then, and there’s been nothing new since.
In a tweet following the final debate, with only a week and a half until the election, Biden declared that he’d finally found Donald Trump’s plan.

The page is definitely worth your click, but you can see below what it leads to.
The Trump plan to defeat the Coronavirus and reopen safely does not exist.
Donald Trump has had eight months to use science, public health, and the power of the Presidency to reopen safely and save American lives. But we are barely better equipped to manage the COVID-19 threat today than we were eight months ago.
Donald Trump has failed to lead and Americans are paying for it with their lives.

Biden has spoken about his plans at length, but they can be summed up in listening to the experts, rather than shutting them out, and finding a balance where the economy can open up but the virus is shut down.
