Donald Trump has officially welcomed his party’s re-nomination to be US president during the Republican National Convention. He warned on Thursday that his political race rival Joe Biden wants to demolish “American greatness” in a speech accepting the Republican nomination for a second term counter to deadly coronavirus pandemic.
“This election will decide whether we save the American Dream,” Trump said. “Joe Biden is not a savior of America’s soul. He’s the destroyer of America’s jobs and given the chance, he’ll be the destroyer of American greatness.”
President Donald Trump promised Thursday to remake the pandemic-battered economy, face China, recruit more police, and take action against border side security.
Around 30 minutes into his speech, the president referenced the coronavirus pandemic. When the president spoke Thursday night, 180,000 Americans had passed on from COVID-19. There have been more than 5.8 million confirmed cases across the country.
The president bragged about his organization’s production and conveyance of medical supplies and equipment during the pandemic and promised that it “will produce a vaccine before the end of the year, or maybe even sooner.”
In differentiating his organization’s treatment of the coronavirus emergency with Biden’s arrangement to defeat COVID-19, Mr. Trump asserted that Biden would “inflict a painful shutdown” on the whole nation that “would be measured in increased drug overdoses, depression, alcohol addiction, suicides, heart attacks, economic devastation and more.” Biden, nonetheless, had just said in a meeting that he would do as such if that were suggested by researchers.
“Joe Biden’s plan is not a solution to the virus, but rather surrender,” the president said.
The president inaccurate claimed that Biden called his ban on travel from China in January “xenophobic.”
“When I took bold action to issue a travel ban on China, Joe Biden called it hysterical and xenophobic. If we had listened to Joe, hundreds of thousands more Americans would have died,” he said.
