With nearly 250 thousand American deaths from the pandemic that's upended daily life in the United States, President Donald Trump is still attacking Democratic nominee Joe Biden on the campaign trail for Biden's willingness to observe safety guidelines written by Trump's own experts.
Even as cases of the pandemic are spiking across the country, Trump continues to hold packed rallies with thousands of supporters while mocking Biden for holding more intimate events that adhere to health and safety guidelines.
At a rally in Arizona, Trump falsely suggested that Biden has no plans to reopen the country.
"If you vote for Biden, it means no kids in school, no graduations, no weddings, no Thanksgiving, no Christmas, and no Fourth of July together. Other than that, you have a wonderful life."
Trump was referring to the widespread crackdown on large events implemented by local leaders concerned with slowing the spread of the virus.
But in her response to Trump's assertion, 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton pointed out that this is already happening under Trump's watch—the implication being that his constant dismissal of the threat posed by the virus has lengthened the necessity of these measures.
Clinton simply told Trump to "look around."
People took the former Secretary of State's point.
They applauded her rebuttal.
After nearly two years of campaigning, the presidential election is on November 3rd, but early voting has begun in at least 40 states.
