CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/JOE BIDEN/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “No one takes the president’s word for these things. He at a minimum exaggerates everything, and the idea that he’s going to stand there and say ‘everything’s fine, don’t worry?’ Who’s going to believe that? Let the experts speak like we did in our administration. Let the experts take this [coronavirus response] over. Everyone will have more confidence. I think one of the reasons it’s falling is not just because of the pandemic concern but the way in which the president’s handling this.”
