The Washington Post reports:
Trump insisted Monday that he has not decided to “wave the white flag” on the novel coronavirus, as Biden accused him of doing Sunday after White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said in a television interview that the administration had effectively given up on trying to slow its spread.
“No, no, he has,” Trump told reporters in Allentown, Pa., when asked about Biden’s characterization “He’s waved a white flag on life. He doesn’t leave his basement. This guy doesn’t leave his basement. He is a pathetic candidate, I will tell you that.”
Trump said that his administration had, in his view, “done an incredible job” combating the coronavirus. “We are absolutely rounding the corner, other than the fake news wants to scare everybody,” Trump said.
It seems that Biden repeatedly saying for months that Trump has “waved the white flag” of defeat on COVID has finally gotten under Trump’s skin. Trump’s now saying that Biden has “waved the white flag on life,” which makes no sense.
