Washington: Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in the competitive states of Nevada and North Carolina, slammed the United States President Donald Trump’s COVID-19 response, saying, that he continues to “lie about the pandemic circumstances’.
According to the US Elections Project at the University of Florida, some 27.7 million Americans have already cast ballots either by mail or in person ahead of the November 3 election.
Biden criticised Trump for saying over the weekend that the United States had “turned the corner” in the coronavirus pandemic, noting that the rate of new cases across the country has risen to the highest level in months.
“As my grandfather would say, ‘This guy’s gone around the bend if he thinks we’ve turned the corner,'” Biden said. “Things are getting worse, and he continues to lie to us about circumstances.”
Biden’s pick for vice president, Senator Kamala Harris, cancelled in-person events over the weekend as a precaution after an aide tested positive for COVID-19. She will return to the campaign trail on Monday with a visit to Florida to mark that state’s first day of early in-person voting.
