Vice President Mike Pence just confirmed it. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden cannot be trusted, and the truth has come out. Pence didn’t hold back at all.
During an interview with Breitbart News, Pence said that based upon Biden’s “record on swine flu, we can’t trust Joe Biden to deal with the pandemic.” In fact, over 60 million Americans were infected with the H1N1 virus over the course of its first year.
By contrast, there have been just over 7.9 million confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) since the outbreak earlier this year. Granted, the mortality rate has been significantly higher — 216,904 deaths compared to 12,469 with the swine flu.
It was obvious from observing the pandemic’s spread in China and Europe that COVID-19 could be potentially deadly — particularly for those who are immune-compromised or elderly, which is why the Trump administration took action.
As soon as cases were confirmed in the United States, President Donald Trump suspended all travel with China as Pence — leading the Coronavirus Task Force — worked with Dr. Anthony Fauci and others on additional responses to the virus.
But not only did the Obama administration allow over 60 million Americans to contract H1N1, Biden outright opposed Trump’s travel ban for COVID-19, even though it bought our country valuable time to respond to the virus effectively.
