President Donald Trump criticized former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday for failing to enforce a national mask mandate — but Biden, as a candidate, has no authority to do so.
When asked by a voter during an ABC News town hall why he has not supported universal mask-wearing, Trump diverted to blame his 2020 Democratic opponent for having not done so.
"A good question is you ask, like Joe Biden, they said 'we're going to do a national mandate on masks,'" Trump said Tuesday evening. "But he didn't do it, I mean, he never did it."
"They said at the Democratic Convention they're going to do a national mandate, they never did it because they checked out and they didn't do it," he said.
Trump criticizes Biden in town hall for not issuing a national mask mandate — but Biden as a candidate has no authority to do so
This lowlife literally criticized a private citizen for not doing a national mask mandate...I mean does this loser realize Biden isn't president yet? Is he trolling? Is he losing his marbles? Maybe both?
Regardless, nobody loved that town hall more than the Lincoln Project and the Biden campaign. Literal gold, all of it.
