Obama campaigns for Biden, slams on dealing with pandemic
Former President Barack Obama delivered remarks in Orlando, Florida on behalf of Joseph R. Biden Jr. on Tuesday and criticized the White House’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
Black unemployment hit nearly 17% during the Great Recession 10 years ago. And through a lot of hard work, Joe Biden and I helped bring him down. More than 225,000 people in this country have died, more than 100,000 small businesses have closed. Half a million jobs have disappeared in Florida alone. Think about it. And what, what’s his final point – that people are too focused on Covid? He said this at one of his rallies. Covid, Covid, Covid he complains. He is jealous of the media coverage of Covid. His chief of staff, on a news program, said, “We are not going to control the pandemic.” He just said this. Yes he did. And yes, we noticed it, you are not going to control the pandemic. Listen, winter is coming. They wave the white flag of surrender. Here is the truth. The pandemic would have been difficult for any president. But the idea that somehow this White House did anything but screw this thing up completely is absurd.
