COVID U.S. Death Toll Tops 205,000 & 7M Infections as Trump Mocks Biden’s Mask, Attacks the ACA

During the first presidential debate, former Vice President Joe Biden repeatedly criticized President Trump over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed over 205,000 people in the United States — the highest death toll in the world.

Trump mocked Biden for wearing a mask, while claiming that a vaccine would be available within weeks. “It was very bizarre,” says Marc Lamont Hill, author and professor of media studies and urban education at Temple University.

“The idea of not erring on the side of caution is representative of the entire Trump administration’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis.”
