CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/JOE BIDEN/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The virus is not his [President Trump’s] fault, but the response is his responsibility.

Look, there are a few things he can do — he can immediately and fully implement the Defense Production Act, which I and many others called for a long time ago. And he’s just getting underway with it. There’s still no Defense supply act — Production Act for gloves, masks, all the things first responders need.

We should create a bank Defense Production Act. We have got to get those small business loans out.”
