Trump Campaign Tried To Get Chris Wallace To ‘Never Mention’ 205K COVID Deaths At First Debate: Biden Team

Prior to Tuesday’s debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, the Trump campaign released a statement accusing Biden of wearing an earpiece at tonight’s event. The Biden campaign fired back, revealing that the Trump team urged moderator Chris Wallace to “never mention” the number of people that died from COVID-19 during the Trump presidency.

Biden campaign deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield released the statement in response to the Trump campaign’s attacks.

“If we’re playing that game then the Trump team asked that Chris Wallace never mention the number of COVID deaths once during the debate,” Bedingfield said, according to reports.

It was not immediately clear if Bedingfield was serious about her allegation or if she made it to make a point about the wild claims made by the Trump team.
