Last year when he was running against then President Trump, Joe Biden promised that if elected he would “shut down” the virus:
We're eight months into this pandemic, and Donald Trump still doesn't have a plan to get this virus under control.
— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) October 16, 2020
I'm not going to shut down the country.
I'm not going to shut down the economy.
I'm going to shut down the virus.

As evidenced by today’s response to Fox News’ Peter Doocy, Biden’s promise has taken a big pivot:

Try not to get run over during that backpedal!
🚨🚨 Doocy asks Biden: "Are you no longer going to shut the virus down?"
Biden: "We've gotta beat it back before we shut it down…We've gotta shut it down worldwide."
If that's not moving the goalposts, I don't know what is. pic.twitter.com/tvo7ZivdWx

So, if you’re keeping score at home…
to recap… Biden administration strategy on COVID-19:
1) Beat it back.
2) Shut it down. https://t.co/SiJ8FIktR8

This administration’s spin on what was obviously a ridiculous promise has been something to behold.
I don't remember Biden saying it would take time during the 2020 election. Nor did he claim our success in shutting it down was contingent on the rest of the world.

Biden really hopes nobody remembers his original promises, but we do.
Beat Back Better.
