Fox News released an Op-ed written by Newt Gingrich, and in it, he lambasts Joe Biden for his claims that Trump is responsible for 215,000 deaths caused by the coronavirus.
“This is factually wrong, disingenuous, immoral, and disrespectful to the hundreds of thousands of Americans who are working every day to defeat the coronavirus and save lives.”
“Recall that the day that Trump announced these bans, Biden accused Trump of “hysterical xenophobia.” Days before, Biden wrote in an op-ed for USA Today that travel bans would “make things worse.” (Months later, he backtracked and said that he agreed with travel bans to deal with the virus.) ”
“The truth is that President Trump has been working nonstop to defeat the virus and bring America back from the brink of medical and economic ruin, while Biden and Harris have done nothing but criticize, deflect, and insult their way through this crisis. ”

In February, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., made a show of going to San Francisco’s Chinatown — making the claim that concern about the virus was driven by racist sentiment.
From the start, the Trump administration utilized parts of the CARES Act and Families First Coronavirus Response Act to ensure vaccines could be freely and widely distributed once they were developed.
Contrary to the typical Washington bureaucracy model, President Trump immediately reached out to — and has been working with — American business leaders to see how we could unlock industry to help us defeat the virus.
Meanwhile, Biden and Harris have released their plan for taking on the virus and — as
Vice President Mike Pence said during his debate — the Biden-Harris plan appears to be a plagiarized copy of the plan the White House has been implementing for months.
In fact, Biden already has a terrible track record of failing to deal with pandemics — and his previous tenure as vice president is part of the reason that federal agencies were strapped for resources at the start of the COVID-19 crisis.
