On Thursday, Joe Biden assailed US President Donald Trump as having no plan to stop a dark winter of coronavirus deaths as they sparred in their last head-to-head clash 12 days before the election.
At the televised debate Biden said: “220,000 Americans dead. If you hear nothing else I say tonight, hear this. Anyone who’s responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United States of America.”
He said: “We’re about to go into a dark winter. And he has no plan.”
Trump hit back that there would be no dark winter and defended his push to reopen the United States as soon as possible.
Trump said: “We’re rounding the turn. We’re rounding the corner. It’s going away. We have a vaccine that’s coming, it’s ready, it’s going to be announced within weeks.”
