Joe Biden slams Donald Trump’s leadership record

Presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said US President Donald Trump had failed to lead in the face of the coronavirus pandemic and its attendant economic downturn.

Speaking at an online town hall with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Biden said the president had not “changed anything” despite a recent dramatic rise in virus cases across the country.

He also slammed Trump for failing to stand up to Russian President Vladimir Putin following allegations his security services paid bounties to Taliban fighters to kill American soldeirs in Afghanistan.
