Take a quick jaunt over to TrumpCovidPlan.com, and you’ll get what, at first, seems like an error message.
Start clicking, though, and you’ll quickly realize the site is a clever play from the Biden team. Former Vice President Joe Biden himself tweeted out the website on Friday, writing: “After eight months of this pandemic, we finally found President Trump’s plan to beat COVID-19.”
The point is obvious: The Trump administration has no plan.
But when you click Learn More on the page, the Biden team created a slide show of sorts. As you click through, it juxtaposes President Donald Trump’s statements about the virus with the number of deaths.
“They are dying, that’s true. And you have — it is what it is,” reads a slide that has the death count at more than 150,000, for instance.
Biden has repeatedly criticized Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, including at Thursday’s presidential debate. The former VP again and again said Trump had no plan even as more than 220,000 Americans died.
“Anybody that is responsible for that many deaths should not remain president of the United States,” Biden said at the debate.
As you click “next” on the Biden website, a series of damning quotes from President Trump about the COVID pandemic appear, alongside the number of people who had died from the virus when they were said.
While it at first seems like kind of a silly troll, it ends up being a stark reminder of what Trump’s lack of a plan has cost us in real terms.
