BIDEN TRANSITION/CORONAVIRUS/TRUMP ADMIN: “I am the president-elect, but I will not be president until next year.

CORONAVIRUS/VACCINES: “And we shouldn’t be politicizing the race for a [coronavirus] vaccine either, we should be planning it safe and equitable and free distribution.

TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “He [Donald Trump] turned his back on teachers and school children — standing in the way of support to get the PPE and cleaning supplies and ventilation needed to safely reopen schools.

CONGRESS/JOE BIDEN/SUPREME COURT: “I find it fascinating. They had time at the very end of this election to hold a hearing on a Supreme Court justice, but the Senate does not have time to deal with making sure schools and businesses have the PPE they need, the protective gear, does not have the sanitary conditions […]

CORONAVIRUS: “He [Donald Trump] hasn’t pulled Congress together to provide real relief for working people, moms, and dads, and business owners.

TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “He [Donald Trump] thinks we’ll forget about how badly he mismanaged this pandemic that cost us more — so far — than 205,000 lives and counting, almost 30 million people on unemployment insurance.

CORONAVIRUS/JOE BIDEN/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/VACCINES: “A [coronavirus] vaccine would offer a way back to normalcy… but it’s not going to happen overnight… Americans have had to endure President Trump’s incompetence and dishonesty when it comes to testing and personal protective equipment.  We can’t afford to repeat those fiascos when it comes to a vaccine… I trust […]

COVID-19/JOE BIDEN/VACCINES: “The decision to clear a vaccine means little if Americans cannot get a vaccination on a timely basis.

COVID-19/JOE BIDEN/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “In the last seven months, Trump has abdicated his duty and failed to lead on every significant aspect of the COVID-19 response — making promises he’s never kept, giving preferences to political allies, and threatening to punish political enemies.

BUSINESS/JOE BIDEN: “I’ve laid out in detail what I would do, and all the way back in January, when this first came out.
