Monday during the White House Coronavirus Task Force briefing, the Commander in Chief gave an account of his phone call with former Vice President Joe Biden, expressing that it was a “really wonderful, warm conversation.”
Last week during a White House Coronavirus Task Force briefing, President Donald Trump said he would “absolutely” take a call from former Vice President Joe Biden to discuss the coronavirus pandemic.
Before his phone call with the former vice president, the Commander in Chief took to Twitter earlier in the day wondering, “what ever happened to that phone call [Biden] told the Fake News he wanted to make to me?”
President Trump tweeted on Monday: “Joe Biden wanted the date for the Democrat National Convention moved to a later time period. Now he wants a ‘Virtual’ Convention, one where he doesn’t have to show up. Gee, I wonder why?”
“Also, what ever happened to that phone call he told the Fake News he wanted to make to me?” he asked.
During Monday’s briefing, President Trump said, “I also spoke just a few minutes ago with former Vice President Biden, who called, and we had a really wonderful, warm conversation. It was a very nice conversation.” Continued Below
