Trump Campaign Turns Up The Heat Against Joe Biden
- 28.7K Views
Former Vice President and Democrat front-runner Joe Biden has specifically been targeted by President Trump’s campaign following his irresponsible remarks accusing Trump of being racist and incompetent over the coronavirus.
During a news release on Thursday, President Trump and his campaign pointed out multiple errors made by the Obama-Biden administration that resulted in a nationwide shortage of N95 protective masks.
President Trump cited multiple articles that placed blame on Barack Obama’s administration, who was advised of the shortage but failed to replenish the masks after the H1N1 outbreak in 2009.
“The Obama-Biden Administration would have also been aware of warnings regarding the lack of ventilators. Joe Biden could have heeded these longstanding warnings when he was in office.”
“He failed to," the campaign added.
During the swine flu (H1N1) outbreak, nearly 100 million N95 protective respirator masks were used up in the United States.
This news release is a significant advancement in President Trump’s efforts to fight back against the misinformation being spread by Democrats. On Wednesday, his campaign filed a cease-and-desist letter aimed at multiple states who aired an ad from a super-PAC backed by Obama and Clinton claiming that he called the coronavirus a “hoax.”

On Wednesday, the Trump campaign sent cease-and-desist letters to television stations airing a campaign ad featuring clips of the president remarking on the coronavirus. The ad, launched by the anti-Trump independent group Priorities Action Fund, is in violation of Federal Communications Commission regulations, the Trump campaign said.
The ad contains the false assertion that President Trump called the coronavirus a “hoax,” when he was referring to Democratic criticisms and politicization of the federal response to the public health crisis, the campaign said, in demanding television stations stop running the spot.
That same day, the Trump campaign targeted a response Biden gave during a press briefing. In answer to a report, Biden said Congress could use the next round of stimulus bills as an opportunity for "my Green Deal."
“Joe Biden would use the Chinese coronavirus crisis as an opportunity to cram the Green New Deal down Americans’ throats,” Tim Murtaugh, Trump 2020 communications director, said. “This terrible idea would impose massive regulations on businesses and people at the worst time imaginable and would jack up their heating and cooling bills on top of it."
The former vice president fired back on Thursday, practically blaming President Trump for the unemployment numbers, regardless of the coronavirus pandemic and shutdowns, claiming that he “didn’t do his job when it mattered.”
Almost immediately, Joe Biden had proved himself to be incapable of handling the coronavirus crisis earlier on, calling President Trump’s travel restrictions to China “racist” and “xenophobic” on February 18th.
Joe Biden has faced some serious problems this past month, whether it be sexual assault accusations, repeated gaffes, or new attacks from the Trump campaign, it is beginning to look like Democrats are in deep trouble for 2020.
