That was quite a claim from Joe Biden, but he said he wasn’t making it up and you just had to look at the data to see it was true. If President Trump had done his job from the beginning — back when the WHO was saying the coronavirus couldn’t be transmitted between humans, the experts were urging people not to wear masks, and Biden was calling Trump xenophobic for blocking incoming flights from China — all the people would still be alive. Keep in mind that Biden, who would institute a nationwide mask mandate if he could, was holding rallies in March.
Biden claims Trump is responsible for every single person who has died from COVID-19:

We’re looking at a whole lot of incoming flights from Wuhan, but it’s racist to say the virus came from there.
There better be a fact check for this tomorrow, because I don't know anyone, that would think we could have avoided all the deaths.

The real problem is they OWN all of the fact checking, all of the MSM, and all of the social media, so you cannot dispute this lie. We should be ashamed that we lost those battles because they may just cost us the war.

Yes, he was responsible for their preexisting conditions.

What data? The data that told Biden that Trump was a Xenophobe for shutting down flights from China?

Trump must be president of the whole world.

“You think I’m making this up” because you are. There is no way to come to the logical conclusion that most or all of these deaths were preventable

Joe is not aware that most of the people who died with covid were already dying. Most deaths were 85 and older and had illnesses that they were dying of.

He enacted the largest response to a pandemic in the history of the country. Joe just says it should be bigger… just like blaming Bush for a hurricane.

If China had done its job…

By this logic, based on the data, 98% of the people wouldn't have died if China and WHO did their jobs.

Actual doctor here. This is a flagrant lie.

And we’ve seen the data. The deaths were originally set to 2 million. In the end we’re at 200,000. Only 6% of those died from strictly COVID-19. Its sad to see anyone die, but that’s still better than the original estimate.

This is laughable!! A world pandemic with absolutely no deaths? How? A virus the scientist knew nothing about. A virus healthcare workers knew nothing about. A virus no one knew anything about. So the deaths are Trumps fault? How? It’s just too funny.
— Dolly Lundy (@dmrlundy4128) September 18, 2020
Biden is insane. 175 countries had collectively 1 million deaths from Covid – that any world leader could’ve prevent all the deaths is a reckless lie that should’ve been stopped in it tracks. But alas, CNN.
— Carmine (@rc08610) September 18, 2020
Sounds like a good way to conduct foreign policy. Obviously every other foreign leader with deaths is derelict in their duty as well.

Biden never says exactly what he would have done differently. We know he would not have banned travel from China.
— Kelkat (@Tweetytweeter63) September 18, 2020
Absolutely absurd. He also hasn’t given one practical thing he would have done differently
— Marie H (@SpeakUpUS) September 18, 2020
Biden would have shut down travel from China in 2018 and not a single person would have died from any virus ever again.

Team Biden: Despite calling Trump a ‘xenophobic fear-monger’ for the China travel ban, the ‘if Biden were president’ administration would’ve totally stopped the virus https://t.co/tCCPnMkMvU
