‘Masks matter, they save lives’: Biden hits out at Prez
Weeks before the US election, Democratic challenger Joe Biden yet again took a swipe at US President Donald Trump in a short video he posted on Twitter on wearing masks amid the pandemic.
A short clip he shared shows Biden putting on a black mask while Donald Trump removes his white mask in an adjacent frame. “Masks matter. They save lives,” reads the caption of the video.
The post came shortly after Trump invited fresh criticism for removing his mask immediately, post his return to the White House.
Biden also suggested that Trump’s comments on not being afraid of Covid were irresponsible. “Tell that to the 205,000 families who lost somebody,” he said. “I would hope that the president, having gone through what he went through —and I’m glad he seems to be coming along pretty well — would communicate the right lesson to the American people: masks matter,” Biden said.
