Fact Check: Joe Biden Did Not Call for Country to Be Shut Down One Week Earlier. Friday morning Joe Biden claimed that he called for the country to shut down before President Trump did. Well this writer couldn’t find it. If Joe can give us a copy of the text?
President Trump made his announcement on March11. On March 10, Biden was still out there campaigning. SMH.
The first time any Democratic debate discussed the coronavirus was at the Feb. 25 debate in South Carolina. Biden did not call for shutting down the economy; rather, he said he would restore funding for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which had already been restored; and he said he would demand that China allow American experts into the country, which had also already happened. He never urged Trump to shut down the U.S. economy.
