In their effort to cover up Donald Trump’s colossal failure amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Republicans have claimed that “nobody expected” the horrific health crisis. Well, Joe Biden did.
Biden tweeted about the US’s lack of preparedness for a pandemic in October, according to a tweet the former vice president reposted on Thursday.
The former vice president paired his 25 October tweet with one from the same day last year by Donald Trump, in which the president complained to Apple’s Tim Cook about the functionality of his iPhone.
Biden’s tweet read: “We are not prepared for a pandemic. Trump has rolled back progress President Obama and I made to strengthen global health security.”
He continued: “We need leadership that builds public trust, focuses on real threats, and mobilises the world to stop outbreaks before they reach our shores.”
The tweet included a link to a Washington Post story from the previous day that said that 195 countries, including the US, are not fully prepared for a pandemic.
Trump’s tweet on the other hand, reads: “To Tim: The Button on the IPhone was FAR better than the Swipe!

Meanwhile, Trump was tweeting about his iphone:

It’s clear that the president of the United States took the necessary measures to protect the country from a deadly pandemic. I would strongly urge American voters to look for an alternative to both Trump and Republicans in general. Because the person who is running against Trump at the moment very much did see the coronavirus disaster coming.
