Battle of words continues between Presidential candidates.
President Donald Trump states to shun lockdown whereas rival Joe Biden said the pandemic could be stopped by “flipping a switch”.
What did Joe Biden say?
While speaking from his home of Wilmington, Delaware, Democrat Joe Biden said he would not campaign “on the false promises of being able to end this pandemic by flipping a switch”.
Mr. Biden – who has not ruled out further lockdowns – pledged instead to “let science drive our decisions”.
“Even if I win, it’s going to take a lot of hard work to end this pandemic,” he said. “I do promise this: We will start on day one doing the right things.”
What did Trump say?
President Trump spoke to a rally in Goodyear.
Mr. Trump warned that a Biden presidency would lead to more lockdowns and economic misery for Americans.
“If you vote for Joe Biden it means no kids in school, no graduations, no weddings, no thanksgivings, no Christmas, and no Fourth of July together.
“Other than that you’ll have a wonderful life. Can’t see anybody, but that’s alright.”
He cast the election as “a choice between a Trump super-recovery and a Biden depression”.
