“In the past, Joe Biden has shown terrible judgment and incompetence in the face of public health issues. The Obama White House had to publicly apologize for and clean up after Biden when his irresponsible remarks caused panic during the swine flu outbreak in 2009,” the statement from Trump’s campaign reads.

Trump campaign issued the statement shortly after Joe Biden criticized the Trump administration’s handling of the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S.

“The administration’s failure on testing is colossal and it’s a failure of leadership, planning and execution,” Biden said during a speech in Wilmington, Delaware. “This virus laid bare the severe shortcomings of the current administration.”

Biden as well criticized the Trump administration for the current travel ban, which constricts travel for foreign nationals that have visited 26 European countries, not including the United Kingdom and Ireland. Biden contended that “banning all travel from Europe or any part of the world may slow” COVID-19, “but it will not stop it.”
