Joe Biden ratcheted up his criticism of President Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic on Wednesday, accusing him of ignoring the damage he’s caused by an inadequate and ineffective response to the outbreak. “Donald Trump wants to style himself as a wartime president. Unlike any other wartime leader, he takes no responsibility, he exercises no leadership, now he has just flat surrendered the fight,”

Biden said during a campaign event in the Philadelphia suburbs.. The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee attacked Trump for the high rate of U.S. deaths and charged that the economy is “still sputtering.” With “no clear guidance” from the federal government on how businesses should respond, Biden warned the economic outlook could get worse. Last week, Biden was in Philadelphia to unveil a multifaceted plan he said would gradually reopen the economy, increasing growth while not putting business owners or consumers at unnecessary risk.

The former vice president promised that, if elected, he would guarantee testing for the virus and protective equipment to guard against its spread for people called back to work. He also wants to use federal funds to ensure paid leave for anyone who falls ill, or cares for those who do, and to create a national contact tracing workforce or “job corps” of at least 100,000 to call people who test positive, track down their contacts and get them into quarantine.
