‘Masks mat­ter, they save lives’: Bi­den hits out at Prez

DT Next - - INTERNATIO­NAL -

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.
