Joe Biden downplayed the increase in Donald Trump’s approval rating during the coronavirus outbreak, claiming that all presidents have seen a surge in growth during times of crisis in the United States.
“I think that’s a quintessentially American answer,” Biden told NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday morning. “In every crisis we’ve had … the President’s ratings have always risen in crisis.”
He referred to former President Jimmy Carter, who saw an increase from 31 percent in October 1979 to 54 percent in December 1979, after Iranian militants stormed the United States Embassy in Tehran, Iran in November and kidnapped seventy Americans.
Donald Trump’s endorsement rating has been boosted in several polls as he conducts daily briefings and works around the clock to address the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

A Washington Post-ABC News poll showed the president Friday with 48 percent approval, which is the first time a specific poll has shown results where Trump had higher approval than disapproval.
The investigation found that Trump’s approval rating has been increased by five points since mid-February, when Americans were last asked their impression of the President.
Perhaps the most notable example of an increase in approval rating crises was with former President George W. Bush following the September 11 terrorist attacks.
Immediately before the attacks, Bush had a relatively high approval score of 51 percent and shot up to 89 percent about a week and a half after the attacks.
Biden told NBC’s Chuck Todd Sunday that despite the boost, Trump should act less childish and get the situation under control, as coronavirus mortality has doubled from 1,000 to 2,000 in just one day over the weekend.
“I hope we’re in the fall when this is under control, where we’ve done the right things and things are starting to move, and the President listens to scientists, as I said,” Biden said sadly. “And stopping, you know, the personal attacks on people who disagree with him. Let’s get away from the childishness of this and focus on the problem. ‘
Trump faces reelection and Biden is the supposed Democratic candidate who will take him in November.
However, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont has not yet disappeared from the main race – but at this point, it would be nearly impossible for him to get the nomination.
Some assistants near Sanders said the progressive candidate thinks the tide of the election could turn if the corona virus continues to shock the nation.
Trump, along with the Coronavirus task force led by Vice President Mike Pence, held daily press meetings at the White House to address the rapidly spreading respiratory illness.
The President and his government, with efforts led by Treasury Secretary Steven Uchin, have also teamed up with legislators on Capitol Hill to get three economic aid packages that will inject the economy and Americans with billions of dollars.
On Friday, Trump signed the Phase Three Stimulus Act, which includes direct checks for Americans earning $ 75,000 or less in the coming weeks.
Trump’s critics have praised him in recent weeks for becoming more presidential during the briefings and taking a darker stance on the outbreak.
