Washington | Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden accused his Republican rival, outgoing President Donald Trump, of “taking a tangent” in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis, on the eve of the Republican convention.

“I do not blame him for the current crisis … I blame him for taking the tangent and not dealing with solutions,” said Joe Biden in an interview with the ABC channel alongside his running mate Kamala Harris.

Donald Trump, behind in the polls, is indeed very criticized for his management of the crisis: he did everything to lift the quarantine measures as quickly as possible, was resistant to wearing a mask for a long time and did not hesitate to cite controversial experts and treatments as an example.

The Democratic candidate also criticized those among his compatriots who invoke their “freedom” as an argument for refusing to wear masks, despite scientific evidence of the effectiveness of this mass strategy in breaking the transmission of the coronavirus.

He also responded to attacks on his mental acuity from his 74-year-old opponent, whose health is also of concern. “Look at me, Mr. Chairman. Look at us both and tell us what shape we are, ”replied Joe Biden, 77.

Kamala Harris, a former attorney general, the daughter of a Jamaican father and an Indian mother, spoke of Joe Biden’s commitment to race equality in the United States.

“Joe really knows what it means, Black lives matter “, She said, referring to the anti-racist movement born in the wake of the death of George Floyd, asphyxiated during his arrest on May 25 in Minneapolis.

Mr. Trump, on the other hand, “has never said those words and will never say them,” she said.

Anxious to show that he is pro-active in the Covid-19 crisis, Donald Trump began the counter-attack on Sunday with the announcement, during a press briefing, of the authorization of treatment in plasma against the coronavirus, the efficacy of which has not yet been formally demonstrated.
