Sen. Tom Cotton had a fiery reaction after Joe Biden admitted during a Monday call with governors that there is no “federal solution” to reduce COVID-19, even though administration is pushing federal mandates to the pandemic.

Biden made the comment after Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson (R), who is the chair of the National Governors Association, warned the Democrat career politician against taking actions that may overstep, as States aim to curb the virus.

“One word of concern or encouragement for your team is that as you look towards federal solutions that will help alleviate the challenge, make sure that we do not let federal solutions stand in the way of state solutions,” Governor Hutchinson said.

“The production of 500 million rapid tests that will be distributed by the federal government is great, but obviously that dries up the supply chain for the solutions that we might offer as governor,” he added.

“There is no federal solution. This gets solved at the state level,” Biden admitted.

“I’m looking at [New Hampshire] Governor [Chris] Sununu on the board here. He talks about that a lot,” Biden said. “And it ultimately gets down to where the rubber meets the road and that’s where the patient is in need of help, or preventing the need for help.”

In response,, Sen. Cotton tweeted:

When Joe Biden says “there is no federal solution,” he’s trying to avoid blame for his incompetence.

If he really believes this, he should rescind his unconstitutional federal mandates.

There’s no federal solution, but the fed government can help by securing the border, approving safe treatments & tests, and appointing competent leaders at the FDA & CDC.

Biden opened the border, botched testing, and outsourced CDC’s guidance to the teachers’ unions.

Biden also tweeted on August 18, 2020, “Donald Trump still doesn’t have a plan to get this virus under control. His failure to lead is costing American lives.”

On October 15, 2020, he also claimed on Twitter, “We’re eight months into this pandemic, and Donald Trump still doesn’t have a plan to get this virus under control. I do.”

On October 31, 2020 Biden wrote on Twitter, “President Trump still has no plan to address COVID-19. He quit on you, on your family, on America. He just wants us to grow numb to the horrors of the death toll and the pain. We cannot afford another four years of his failed leadership.”

Then, in his first few days in office, Biden said, “There’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.”

Biden now admits Covid should be “solved at the state level”, which is what 45th President Donald Trump did. Continued Below

Meanwhile, after telling governors there is “no federal solution” on COVID and it should be “solved at the state level”, Biden departed to Delaware.
