Joe Biden was speaking to community leaders at a church in Delaware this week and he outright lied.
He claimed that of the country shut down over Coronavirus a month earlier that thousands more people would be alive today.
He then said that he told Trump to shut the country down back in January.
That’s simply absurd.
Biden criticized Trump for shutting down flights from China.
Take a look below:
Joe Biden just lied to a church full of black community leaders about 'his' coronavirus recommendations in January. Says 45-60 thousand people would be alive today if President Trump listened to him. pic.twitter.com/MZeB6ducyy

Besides, Biden held rallies in March!
Joe Biden says 45k-60k more people would be alive if the country shut down a month earlier & claims Trump should've listened to him in *January*. Trump's "15 Days To Slow The Spread" guidelines were issued March 16. Biden held rallies March 2, 3, 7, 9, 10.pic.twitter.com/ZW5BIoVLwy

And here’s Biden on the flight ban.
After President Trump implemented his travel ban from China on January 31, Joe Biden said in Iowa "this is no time for Donald Trump's record of hysterical xenophobia and fear-mongering." pic.twitter.com/gru4jsiCVf

This is a gigantic lie told by Joe Biden.
He DID NOT call for a nationwide lockdown in January in response to the coronavirus.
If that were true, why did he keep holding campaign rallies into the 2nd week of March?
He can’t be allowed to revise history.pic.twitter.com/jitSxuiu46

It takes a real out of touch career politician of the most cynical kind to go to a church after the kind of weekend our country had and lie through his teeth that he was calling for the country to be shutdown in January. https://t.co/7YOgUY83aw

Of course, as a Democrat, Joe Biden is assuming that the media will cover for him on this.
And they probably will.
