Joe Biden swore that if he were president, he would bring half-mast flags to the White House in honor of those killed by the corona virus, releasing a video on Thursday ignoring calls to respond to allegations of sexual assault against him .
“I think the president should lower the flag in the White House halfway up the mast to recognize their loss and everything they leave behind – leave all those families behind,” Biden said in a video filmed outside the day before.
Many of them were first responders who gave their lives to save other lives. Folks, I think if he doesn’t – if I’m president, I promise, that’s what I’ll do, “the former vice president vowed. “They need to be recognized.”
The 40-second video was filmed outdoors, while usually any virtual interview, video, or event that keeps Biden at bay is filmed in front of a bookshelf in his house.
Joe Biden demanded in a video released Thursday that Donald Trump lowered the flags in the White House to half-mast to honor those who lost their lives to coronavirus. “If I am president, I promise, that’s what I will do,” he said of raising the flag

Biden claimed that the death toll in the United States continues to rise and has now surpassed the levels of the Vietnam War, where 58,220 Americans lost their lives.
“It is April 29, by the end of this month we will have lost more people of coronavirus – dead – than we lost in the whole Vietnam war – Americans lost in the whole Vietnam war,” Biden stumbled in the pre-recorded video .
In the United States, more than 61,500 people have died from the coronavirus, and there are more than 1.06 million confirmed cases.
Biden is highly critical of Donald Trump’s response to the coronavirus, claiming that he aggravated the outbreak by ignoring intelligence reports and warnings from health experts.
Donald Trump read his daily briefings and either ignored the warnings or did not read them at all. Either way, it’s a complete and unjustifiable breach of duty, ‘tweeted Biden on Thursday.
The former vice president became the supposed Democratic nominee earlier this year when his remaining league, progressive Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, suspended his campaign and threw his weight behind Biden’s campaign.
While some recent polls show that Biden is ahead of Trump in November because the president is addressing the consequences of the corona virus pandemic, the democratic candidate faces a number of challenges of its own.
In late March, Tara Reade, a former Biden executive, went public with charges of sexually assaulting her while working in his Capitol Hill office in 1993.
Reade, who was 29 at the time of the alleged attack, said Biden pushed her against a wall and penetrated her with his fingers.
Biden has not yet been forced to accept the claim, but his campaign has denied the allegations and dismissed Reade’s credibility.
The former vice president has not handled the allegations himself, despite mounting pressure to do so.
