Biden accused Trump of claiming that the coronavirus count was not really going up — blasting him for suggesting that doctors have been inflating the numbers for money.
“What in the hell is the matter with this man?” Biden exclaimed. “A thousand doctors and nurses have given their lives trying to save lives — and he’s saying the reason that they are talking about testing is that they want to make more money. Mr. President, more than 1,000 health care workers have lost their lives fighting Covid — doctors, nurses — they’re not profiting. They’re dying.”
The former vice president then went off on Trump for saying that Americans are learning to live with the coronavirus, quipping that he’s actually asking the U.S. to learn to die with it.
