On Friday during an interview with Fox News, Donald Trump admitted that his political opponent, Joe Biden, could win the November election for president.
Trump made the comments during a town hall hosted by Fox’s Sean Hannity. Trump began by attacking Biden stating that the former vice president “can’t put two sentences together.”
“I don’t want to be nice or un-nice, okay? But I mean, the man can’t speak. And he’s going to be your president ’cause some people don’t love me, maybe, and you know, all I’m doing is doing my job.”
Disapproval ratings for Trump hit a new high this week. PBS and NPR showed his approval at 40% and his disapproval rating at 58%. The polls also show that 49% of voters “strongly disapprove” of “the job Trump is doing.”
Trump’s latest attack on Biden comes on the heels of Biden calling Trump “a child” for the way he has handled the COVID-19 pandemic.
Trump is “like a child who can’t believe this has happened to him — all his whining and self-pity,” Biden said, “Well, this pandemic didn’t happen to him. It happened to all of us. And his job isn’t to whine about it. His job is to do something about it. To lead.”
Just last week, Trump claimed that the coronavirus was “fading away” despite the fact that cases were and continue to surge across the nation.
During his campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Trump urged his team to “slow down testing.”
“When you do testing to that extent, you’re going to find more people, you’re going to find more cases. So, I said to my people, ‘Slow the testing down, please.’ They test and they test.”
Dr. Anthony Fauci has spoken out contradicting Trump stating that the “virus is not going to disappear” and that no one had told him to slow down on testing.
“None of us have ever been told to slow down on testing. That just is a fact,” Fauci said. “In fact, we will be doing more testing… So, it’s the opposite. We’re going to be doing more testing, not less.”
