Former Vice President and expected 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said President Donald Trump’s response to the coronavirus outbreak “drives me crazy”, during an interview Thursday morning with MSNBC host Joe Scarborough.
“The President talks about this like ok, it’s gonna be ok. We’re gonna open tomorrow we’re gonna do this,” Biden explained, “I mean it just, I must tell you, it drives me crazy.”
He added, “I don’t know what he doesn’t understand about people’s fears.”
The two spoke via phone last week about the President’s efforts in mitigating the spread of the virus. “We had a really wonderful, warm conversation, a very nice conversation,” Trump said during a task force briefing last week.
“Vice President Biden and President Trump had a good call,” Biden’s deputy campaign manager and communications director Kate Bedingfield said in a statement to Fox News. “VP Biden shared several suggestions for actions the administration can take now to address the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and expressed his appreciation for the spirit of the American people in meeting the challenges facing the nation.”
