Fox News reports the Trump campaign wasted no time in hitting back at both Democrats.
“There is no greater concentration of Democrat establishment than Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton together,” Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement. “Both of them carry the baggage of decades in the Washington swamp and both of them schemed to keep the Democrat nomination from Bernie Sanders. President Trump beat her once and now he’ll beat her chosen candidate.”
The virtual town hall at 3 p.m. Tuesday will focus on the impact of COVID-19 on women. The female-focused event comes as Biden has remained silent while facing mounting pressure to address allegations of sexual assault leveled against him by former staffer Tara Reade.
Reade publicly accused Biden of sexual assault in a podcast on March 25, and Biden has remained silent on the claims. No one in the media has asked Biden directly about the accusations either.
It’s not clear if Biden will respond to the accusations during the call with Clinton. But Clinton herself has repeatedly said she stands with sexual assault victims, including tweeting in 2015: “You have the right to be heard and believed. We’re with you.”
Hillary to every survivor of sexual assault: You have the right to be heard and believed. We're with you.https://t.co/HPJ2gPPwMs
