President Donald Trump begged Joe Biden to stop trying to score political points by talking about Trump's failures on the coronavirus. Instead, he blamed Biden for being anti-science, an ironic claim given Biden has spent months alleging the same about Trump.
"It's a shameful situation for anybody to try to score political points while we're working to save lives," said Trump, who has been attacked for the past seven months for his failure to contain the virus.
Polls released Thursday show that 56 percent of Americans believe that the U.S. is doing worse on the coronavirus than most other countries. Fewer than 20 percent believe the U.S. is doing better.
A sleepy-sounding Trump also said that he opposes Biden's mask mandate insinuating that if Biden can mandate people to wear masks, what else can he mandate people wear.
