During Saturday’s coronavirus briefing, a reporter informed President Trump that his rival, Joe Biden, “attacked” him on Twitter.
The reporter was referring to a tweet posted by Biden earlier on Saturday, which she read out loud for the President.
“Donald Trump is not responsible for the coronavirus, but he is responsible for failing to prepare our nation to respond to it,” Biden tweeted.

After hearing Biden’s tweet read out loud by the reporter, Trump replied, “He didn’t write that. That was done by a Democrat operative. He doesn’t write…He’s probably not even watching right now. And if he is, he doesn’t understand what he’s watching.”
“But just so you understand, it was very nice what they wrote,” Trump said. “They released it at a strange time, you know, sort of a strange time to release something like that, but he admitted that I was right.”
Then after citing an article by The Federalist, he declared, “I was early. Dr. Fauci, I don’t think he’s changed his mind but he said it was a very important step when we stopped China from coming in from the specific area that was heavily infected. We would have a whole different thing right now.” Video Below
“So I don’t really know what Joe Biden said. I don’t really care. And again…every once in a while I’ll say something, make a speech and it will be critiqued and I get this beautiful, brilliant critique. Joe Biden didn’t write that. Joe Biden didn’t write that. He wished he did, but he didn’t,” President Trump concluded.
