Joe Biden and Kamala Harris gave their first joint interview to ABC News, which will be aired this weekend.
In one segment which has already been teased out, Biden said when asked that he would be willing to shut the entire country down again, due to Coronavirus if elected.
We now know what a bad decision that would be.
Coronavirus: Joe Biden Says He’s Willing to Shut Down Country Again
Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden revealed Friday that he would re-lock down the United States if scientists recommended the extreme measure to stop the spread of the Chinese coronavirus.
“I would shut it down; I would listen to the scientists,” Biden replied when asked by ABC’s World News Tonight anchor David Muir if he would shut down the country if experts proposed the measure.
“I will be prepared to do whatever it takes to save lives because we cannot get the country moving until we control the virus,” Biden, flanked by running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), said. “That is the fundamental flaw of this administration’s thinking to begin with. In order to keep the country running and moving and the economy growing, and people employed, you have to fix the virus, you have to deal with the virus.”
Biden has also said that he would institute a nationwide mandate for wearing masks.

Who wants any of this?
If you enjoyed this year, vote for Joe Biden who will mandate masks and shut down the entire country beginning January 2021. https://t.co/JYpmg0HO7K

Joe Biden says he would shut down the entire country if it's recommended by the scientists.
Imagine the outcome of raising taxes & locking the country down.

This is just further proof that Biden would be a disaster as president.
