The pandemic is still out of control in the US. This also affects the election campaign. President Trump has now again defended his opposition to the advice of scientists.
US President Donald Trump has defended his opposition to the advice of scientists in the corona pandemic. “If I had completely listened to the scientists, we would now have a country that would be in a massive depression,” said Trump during a campaign appearance in Carson City, Nevada, on Sunday (local time). “Instead, we’re like a rocket ship.” Trump made fun of his Democratic challenger Joe Biden because he promises to take advice from scientists in the fight against the coronavirus. A little later, Trump accused Biden of imposing an “unscientific lockdown” to contain the coronavirus if he was elected.
The pandemic is still out of control in the US. More than 8.1 million infections have been detected since the beginning, and almost 220,000 people died after being infected. There is currently an upward trend in the number of new corona infections per day. Regardless, Trump called on the states to open completely on Sunday.
Fauci: Trump believes deep down in science
The prominent US health expert Anthony Fauci said in an interview broadcast on Sunday with the broadcaster CBS: “I think deep down the President believes in science. If he didn’t, his health wouldn’t have the very competent doctors at Walter -Reed Military Hospital. ” Trump had tested positive for the corona virus in early October and was then treated in hospital for three days.
On November 3rd, Americans would have a choice between a “Trump super recovery” of the economy and a “Biden depression,” said Trump. He warned that with Biden taxes would rise and jobs would migrate abroad. Biden promises to use penal taxes to deter US companies from relocating jobs abroad and not to raise taxes for anyone who earns less than $ 400,000 a year if he wins.
