Asked about ABC News, Donald Trump criticized Joe Biden for not having put in place a national obligation to wear a mask. Even though he is the current US president.
Donald Trump is used to blaming his predecessors. From now on, he rejects the fault on his possible successor. On Tuesday, during an ABC News broadcast in which he responded to voters, the US president criticized Joe Biden for failing to put in place a national mask-wearing obligation – while the Democrat has not been in power since 2016 and does not have an electoral mandate with which he could have proposed legislation. Asked by a retired engineer on the lack of a national obligation and on her non-wearing of the mask, Donald Trump replied: “They said at the Democratic convention that they were going to put in place a national obligation, but they never did. They made inquiries and they did not. A good question would be to ask Joe Biden. He said they were going to put in place a national bond, ”he said, before journalist George Stephanopoulos recalled that Joe Biden had called on the governors to act, because it was their responsibility. “He did not do it. He never did. By the way, there are a lot of people who don’t want to wear a mask. Many people who think that the masks are not good, ”he hammered.
Joe Biden quickly responded to the presidential exit: “As a reminder: I am not currently president. But if you participate now, we can change that in November, ”he tweeted, with a link to a call for donations.

Joe Biden presented as a reclusive candidate in his cellar
By drawing the comparison with Joe Biden, Donald Trump calls on his most skeptical voters in the face of the pandemic which has killed more than 195,000 in the country and is distrustful of scientists. After opposing the containment measures for economic reasons, the American president regularly complains about the physical distancing which prevents him from holding the big meetings that he had so much appreciated during the 2016 campaign. measures taken by state and organizes gatherings in airport hangars, in front of a little masked audience – despite the fiasco of his meeting in Tulsa, after which the Oklahoma authorities had detected an increase in contamination. Joe Biden, for his part, always comes out masked in public.
But this stubbornness to appear in front of his constituents, and without a mask, has become a campaign argument for Donald Trump, facing a cautious Joe Biden who multiplies virtual events and meetings in small committees. The billionaire, who had already insisted on the supposed lack of energy of Hillary Clinton, regularly mocks Joe Biden by presenting him as a candidate recluse in his cellar. Donald Trump cannot help but attribute to him the responsibility for many situations, in particular the sometimes violent demonstrations which take place in certain cities. Republicans, like Texan Trumpist Ted Cruz, use the Portland events to illustrate what “Joe Biden’s America” would be like. They present the Democrat as “lax” … while knowingly omitting the fact that Donald Trump has been in power for more than three and a half years and that he refuses to address racism and police violence, the primary reasons for these mobilizations popular.
