Biden Says There Shouldn’t Be A Second Debate If Trump Is Still Sick

On Tuesday, 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said he and Donald Trump should not have next week’s debate if the President still has coronavirus.

Biden told reporters in Hagerstown, Maryland that whether or not he and Trump’s second scheduled debate should happen is something that must be decided according Cleveland Clinic health officials’ advisement.

Biden: ‘I Think We Were Gonna Have To Follow Very Strict Guidelines’

“I think if he still has COVID, we shouldn’t have a debate,” Biden said of Trump.

President Trump was diagnosed with coronavirus on Thursday.

“I think we were gonna have to follow very strict guidelines,” Biden added. “Too many people have been infected. It’s a very serious problem, so I will be guided by the guidelines of the Cleveland Clinic and what the docs say is the right thing to do.”

The possibility of canceling the next scheduled presidential debate was raised after Trump announced last week that he and his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, had tested positive for COVID-19.

In addition to Mr. and Mrs. Trump, a number of White House and campaign officials have also tested positive for coronavirus.

Joe Biden’s COVID tests have turned up negative.

Fox News’ Chris Wallace: ‘Wear The Damn Mask’

Fox News Chris Wallace, who moderated the first presidential debate, said on Friday that the Trump family and team ignored the proper protocol.

Wallace said, “That actually violated the rules of the Cleveland Clinic, which was in charge of all the safety issues inside the hall, which were that everybody except for the president, vice president, and I were not supposed to wear masks, I mean we’re supposed to wear masks.”

“We were the only ones told we were not to wear masks,” Wallace added.

Wallace continued to explain that health officials offered masks to the first family but were ignored.

“Actually a safety person, a health person from the Cleveland Clinic came up to the first family when they were seated and offered them masks in case they didn’t have them and they were waved away,” Wallace said.

“People in the hall noticed that they weren’t wearing masks, and everybody else in the hall was wearing a mask,” he continued.

“When the debate ended, Mrs. Trump came over, walked past me,” he said.

“She was not wearing a mask,” he added. “Mrs. Biden walked past me to her husband, and she was wearing a mask. So there was a difference in the way the two families and their camps treated the health safety regulations inside the hall.”

Wallace continued, “I’ve always been disturbed, frankly, that people think the mask is a political issue and wearing the mask or not wearing the mask says something about your politics. It’s a safety issue.”

“If there is one lesson from today, it’s here is the president of the United States who lives in the biggest bubble that exists on the planet, and he got it. Through no fault of his own,” Wallace said.

“And so the answer is wear the damn mask,” he concluded.
