During his town hall event Thursday former Vice President Joe Biden made a false claim that failed CNN’s fact check.
Biden said that Trump “didn’t do anything” after the $600 weekly supplement for unemployment lapsed in late July.
“And then what happened was, when the first round of money for unemployment, enhanced unemployment went by, he didn’t do anything,” Biden claimed “he didn’t do anything.”
CNN calls the claim false, writing on their website:
Facts first: This is false. The day after congressional talks to extend the federal boost to unemployment benefits collapsed, Trump signed an executive measure to use $44 billion in federal disaster aid to provide $300 a week to the jobless.
