During a recent press event, Joe Biden promised he would not enact a national shutdown over the COVID-19 pandemic.
Biden was asked by a reporter “given the death toll now more than 250,000 Americans who have now lost their lives, you have said that you would support a nationwide shutdown if scientists recommended it. You have spoken to scientists now.”
Biden responded “everybody asks that question every single time I stand here.”
“I am not going to shut down the economy period,” he continued “I’m going to shut down the virus; that’s what I’m going to shut down.”
“I will say it again. No national shutdown. No national shutdown,” he vowed.
