Favorite in the polls Joe Biden voted this Wednesday, October 28 in his stronghold of Wilmington and denounced as an “insult to those who suffer” the management of the Covid-19 pandemic by his rival Donald Trump, who crisscrosses America in a frantic pace. Six days before the US presidential election, the strategies of the two septuagenarian candidates are poles apart. While the Republican president, 74, is due to hold two major campaign meetings in Arizona, one of those decisive states for the outcome of the November 3 election, Joe Biden, 77, has planned to spend the whole day in his small town in Delaware.
After a briefing on the Covid-19 by videoconference, the former Democratic vice-president has thus exhausted the record of the Republican billionaire. The United States is the country most bereaved by the new coronavirus, with more than 227,000 dead. “The Trump administration’s refusal to recognize the reality we are living through, when nearly 1,000 Americans die every day, every day, is an insult to every person who suffers from Covid-19 and every family who has lost a being expensive ”, he launched in front of a handful of journalists, during a brief speech.
“Covid, Covid, Covid, sing in unison the disinformation media”
In a theater in Wilmington, he wanted to present himself as a realistic candidate against the Republican who had promised that the virus would disappear “as if by a miracle”. “I am not running on the false promise that I would be able to put an end to this pandemic by snapping my fingers,” said the ex-right arm of Barack Obama. “But what I can promise you is to do the right thing. We will let science guide our decisions. Then, accompanied by his wife Jill Biden, the candidate went to vote in Wilmington. Shortly before, he said he hoped that he and other Democrats running for the presidential, parliamentary and local elections on November 3 could “make a difference”.
For several days, Donald Trump has been sickened by the too much attention given, according to him, to the pandemic. “Covid, Covid, Covid, the disinformation media sing in unison,” Donald Trump tweeted. “Joe Biden talks a lot, but does nothing,” he told reporters in Las Vegas. Donald Trump’s handling of the crisis, which has also hit the US economy hard, is strongly criticized in opinion research.
