Joe Biden pledged not to campaign “on the false promises of being able to end this pandemic by flipping a switch” in his virtual speech from Delaware.
“Even if I win, it’s going to take a lot of hard work to end this pandemic,” he said from his hometown of Wilmington. “I do promise this: We will start on day one doing the right things.”
He called Trump’s pandemic response an “insult” to victims.
His live broadcast speech telecasted after a briefing he received from health experts. Currently there are an average of 71,000 new Covid-19 cases in the U.S. every day. Death tolls and hospital admissions are rising rapidly.
Biden has held fewer in-person events owing to the coronavirus pandemic. Whereas Trump held a series of rallies in the battleground states across the country.
