Joe Biden’s campaign isn’t wasting any time attacking President Trump while he’s being treated for COVID in Walter Reed Hospital.
Fox News – President Trump’s campaign blasted Joe Biden for continuing to air negative ads while the president is fighting COVID-19 at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland.
Biden’s campaign pledged Friday to take down all negative ads against Trump as the president battled the coronavirus, but TV spots criticizing the president were still running Saturday as the president was hospitalized.
At 4:48 PM ET on Friday, as President Trump was preparing to go to Walter Reed Medical Center, Joe Biden attacked him with a long-debunked lie about Social Security.
Biden falsely claimed that if what “the president’s talking about” comes to pass, “the actuary of Social Security said if that plan goes through, Social Security would be bankrupt by 2023.”
Multiple fact-checkers have debunked this 4-Pinocchio false claim.
