Trump: If you look at what’s happening we have amazing testing that gives us more cases. 47 years, he’s been there 47 years and he hasn’t done anything! Why didn’t you do it when you were there for 8 years 4 years ago with OBAMA?

Biden: We’re now in a situation where these are the facts and this is the situation: this is a guy who doesn’t have a plan, I have a plan, number 1. Number 2: Come onnnnn! Are you serious?

Trump: If you look at what’s going on, I’m maybe the best president for blacks since Abe Lincoln. He wants SOCIALIZED MEDICINE! And the coyotes are bringing their children! But who BUILT the cages??? More testing gives us more cases. 47 years, he’s been there 47 years and he hasn’t done anything! Why didn’t you do it when you were there for 8 years with OBAMA?
