Senior Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller is striking back against Democrat claims that President Trump has handled the coronavirus incorrectly.
In an interview on Sunday, Miller said President Trump has always taken COVID-19 seriously and has put every effort into containing as well as defeating the virus. The adviser also said the President opposes a permanent lockdown and wants to defeat the virus with hopes of moving forward.
“You know, I’d say that with regard to Joe Biden, I think too often he’s used the mask as a prop,” Miller explained. “…we can’t all just stay in our basement for the rest of our lives….we have to get out there and live our lives and take this on…develop the vaccine, develop more therapeutics and defeat it.”
.@realDonaldTrump is “going to defeat” the virus. “And I think when President Trump gets to the White House and out on the campaign trail that it’s going to be a slingshot going forward” https://t.co/5z5dKHQwPE

Miller went on to say President Trump is recovering from COVID-19 and will be back in the White House and on campaign trail soon.
So many more Americans would be dead if Joe Biden were president.
He would not have stopped travel from China.
He would not have cut through bureaucracy & red tape to deliver ventilators, obtain PPE, & lead the world in testing.
We would not be getting a safe vaccine this year

Meanwhile, Biden tested negative for COVID-19 again. His campaign confirmed the results on Sunday, marking the Democrat’s third negative result in two days. He’s scheduled to travel to Florida next week and campaign officials have said they will continue to monitor his health.
