The following article, Flashback: Biden Says It ‘Would Be Wise’ If Trump ‘Called’ Obama to Discuss Pandemic, was first published on Flag And Cross.
*Originally published April 2020* 2020 Democrat frontrunner Joe Biden has offered to work with President Trump regarding strategy in dealing with coronavirus. POTUS said he’d “absolutely” welcome a phone call from the former VP.
As if that wasn’t bonkers enough, Joe said he feels that Trump should call Barack Obama for some advice.
Yeah, he really said it.
While speaking with famed liar Brian Williams, Biden noted, “I think that it would be wise if the president — if Trump called President Obama. I’m going to say something that sounds self-serving, but I think we handled the last pandemic very well. We handled the last economic crisis very well in an organizational structure, how we did it, what we did, who we put in charge, how it got done, where there was no waste of time and money.”
More from The Hill:
“Vice President Biden has been extending his advice for months, and he did so again on the air last night. As he has said repeatedly, Donald Trump is not accountable for coronavirus itself — but he is accountable for the federal government’s slow and chaotic response to this outbreak,” Biden’s deputy campaign manager, Kate Bedingfield, said in a statement.
“Unfortunately, Trump spent months after the virus was discovered disregarding repeated warnings from his scientific and intelligence experts, and downplaying the threat of this outbreak to the American people. He could have heeded Vice President Biden’s public advice not to take China’s word as they misled the world about their efforts to stop the spread,” she continued.
