USA Today reports:
President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden spoke over the phone on Monday about the coronavirus response, days after Trump said he would “absolutely” take Biden’s call, according to a source familiar with the call.
Earlier in the afternoon, the president criticized Biden in a tweet, saying “what ever happened to that phone call he told the Fake News he wanted to make to me.”
The Biden campaign had reached out to the White House Monday following the tweet, a Biden aide said earlier. The aide noted the campaign had not heard from the White House about setting up a call earlier. The White House did not respond to request for comment.
Joe Biden wanted the date for the Democrat National Convention moved to a later time period. Now he wants a “Virtual” Convention, one where he doesn’t have to show up. Gee, I wonder why? Also, what ever happened to that phone call he told the Fake News he wanted to make to me?

Joe Biden wanted the date for the Democratic National Convention moved to a later time because he doesn’t want crowds of people getting the coronavirus in the middle of a pandemic that you said was just a flu and shipped tons of PPE to China without restocking the supplies.
