Joe Biden's proposed solution to Covid is one Trump is already using
Joe Biden has been running around the country criticizing President Trump’s COVID-19 response. Some of his criticisms have been strange. For example, Biden says he would implement the Defense Production Act so manufacturers could be forced to produce needed medical supplies domestically. Perhaps he missed the news, but President Trump invoked the DPA on April 2, 2020.
While the administration preferred to negotiate with corporations to make needed supplies, they did use the power the DPA provides for leverage to nudge companies in the right direction. The team also created an unprecedented public-private partnership to approve masks and sterilization equipment, and to completely revamp domestic swab producers. It also stood up a global supply-chain operation to pick up and deliver needed supplies using exceptionally effective military logistics experts.
The ad juxtaposes Biden and Harris’ criticisms of President Trump’s COVID-19 comments with Dr. Anthony Fauci making the same public statements in his own media appearances. Just like Trump, Fauci said at one point that masks are not necessary. Just like Trump, Fauci said the virus should recede with warmer weather. It seriously looks like Biden and Harris are criticizing Dr. Fauci, not the president.
It looks like Biden is not the only one in his campaign who shoots off his mouth without checking the facts. At least Biden has the excuse of suffering from dementia. What is his staff's excuse?
