Joe Biden calls Trump “a complete fool”

Democratic presidential candidate and former vice president Joseph Biden called the fool of the current US President Donald Trump, who does not wear a medical mask against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic and jokes about it. Biden said this in an interview with CNN.

“He’s a fool, a complete fool that says so,” Biden said, explaining that he means that leading doctors around the world advise wearing a mask in crowded places.

“Presidents should lead, not engage in stupidities and show false masculinity,” Biden added, noting that such a position “costs the people of life.”

On the eve of Trump, he retweeted a photo of Biden in a mask and glasses at the commemoration ceremony, which was published by Fox News political analyst Brit Hume. The journalist signed it: “This could explain why Trump does not like to wear a mask in public. Biden today. ” CNN notes Trump attending the ceremony was maskless.

Trump said earlier that he does not think he should wear a medical mask. “Wearing a mask when I greet presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens — I just don’t see this,” he noted. Later, Trump also explained that he does not use protective equipment because he does not approach anyone at close range. Moreover, all White House employees are required to wear medical masks if they do not work with papers at the table at that moment.
