Barack Obama endorsed Joe Biden’s White House bid on Tuesday, saying his longtime vice president can unify and “heal” a nation struggling through some of its darkest moments.
The formal backing by perhaps the most popular politician in America is the latest boost for Biden’s surging candidacy, and a further sign that Democratic leaders are rallying around the party flagbearer more than six months before November’s election.
”Joe has the character and the experience to guide us through one of our darkest times and heal us through a long recovery,” Obama said in a 12-minute video.
”I believe Joe has all the qualities we need in a president right now.” “Joe helped me manage H1N1 (influenza) and prevent the Ebola epidemic from becoming the type of pandemic we’re seeing now,” Obama said.
在奥巴马公开支持拜登后，拜登在推特上晒出了和奥巴马击掌的合照，并配文“Let’s do this”作为回应。
“这么久以来，警示总是被忽视，政府总是说一切都在控制之中”， 拜登说， “到现在为止，我们只实施了社交隔离这一项措施，这是白宫计划和准备的失败。”
Earlier in March, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden expressed disapproval of President Donald Trump’s reference to coronavirus as “Chinese Virus” and urged him to be honest. “Take responsibility. Do your job,” he said in a tweet.
Within a week, he then fired against Trump during a speech delivered from home, accusing the government for being slow to respond to the health crisis. “The president says no one saw this coming. Well, that’s just not accurate,” Biden said.
”The mindset that was slow to recognize the problem in the first place … is still too much of how the president is addressing the problem.” He also blamed the president for not taking the crisis seriously in January. “Trump keeps saying he is a wartime president – well, start to act like one.”
