Appearing on “The View” Biden running mate contender Susan Rice blamed the Trump administration for what she considers a faulty pandemic response, while defending the Obama administration.
“We prepared the administration with a pandemic for dummies playbook and a table-top exercise. Rice said “nd so many other briefings.”
Rice continued “So the fault here, the tragic loss of 150,000 Americans and counting, is on Donald Trump and his gross mishandling of this pandemic. He said it would go away. He likened it to the flu … he’s urged kids to go back to school in communities where the virus is raging. Every step of the way, Donald Trump has put his own personal, political interests ahead of the health and the well-being and the economic security of Americans.”
