Last section. Last bullets for the November 3 elections in the United States. And the candidates hold on to his best rhetoric. Joe Biden talks about the president’s “horrible” handling of the pandemic. And Donald Trump talk about the apocalypse.
In the tense final days of a highly controversial US election, the specter of the coronavirus is omnipresent and Biden is focusing heavily on COVID-19, while Trump gleefully promises to “beat the virus” but prefers to talk about anything else. , if it is apocalyptic better.
Biden clarifies that he does not play with “false promises of being able to end this pandemic by pressing a button”, but assures that he will give priority to science if elected. He said that Trump’s handling of the pandemic it is an insult” for the victims. The United States has seen more than 227,000 confirmed deaths from viruses.
Trump paints an apocalyptic picture of life in America with Biden as president.
The suburbs would no longer be suburbs, the economy would sink into the worst depression of all time, and police departments would cease to exist. Even America’s older adults would be forced to figure out how to get by without heat, air conditioning, and electricity.

“It’s a choice between a BOOM WITH TRUMP or a BIDEN LOCKOUT. It’s a choice between our plan to kill the virus or Biden’s plan to kill the American dream.”
Trump has criticized Biden for saying he would listen to scientists and claims the Democrat would lock up the country. In reality, Biden has not said whether he would support large-scale shutdowns of the nation’s economy if things drastically worsened, as they did in March with much of the country.
“If you vote for Biden, that means there will be no children in schools, no graduations, no weddings, no Thanksgiving, not Christmas, not Independence Day together, “Trump said Wednesday during a rally in Goodyear, Arizona.
