A Democrat trying to become the next president allegedly took the Trump administration’s plan to tackle the deadly disease and presented it as his own, the vice president said.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has been accused of copying the White House Coronavirus Task Force plan and passing it off as his own.
Vice President Mike Pence revealed at the first 2020 U.S. vice presidential debate on Oct. 7 he first became suspicious when he read Biden’s plan to contain the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus.
“The reality is when you look at the Biden plan, it reads an awful lot like of what President Trump and I, and our task force, have been doing every step of the way,” he said in a video shared on Twitter.
The vice president is very concerned about parts of Biden’s plan that refer to advancing testing, creating new personal protective equipment, and developing a vaccine appear to have been taken directly from strategies the Oval Office and task force created.
“Quite frankly, when I look at their plan that talks about, it looks a little bit like plagiarism, which is something Joe Biden knows a little bit about,” he said.
Debate moderator and USA Today Washington bureau chief Susan Page repeatedly tried to interrupt the vice president while he was speaking.
“Thank you Vice President Pence, thank you Vice President Pence, thank you Vice President Pence,” she can repeatedly be heard saying off-camera.
However, Pence was unmoved and even revealed the Trump administration expects to have a high number of CCP Virus vaccines available in the next two months.
“[We are talking about] literally tens of millions of doses of vaccine before the end of this year,” he said.
He believes most people already know what the president has done to “put the health of American people first.”
“The American people, I believe in my heart, can be proud of the sacrifices they have made,” he said. “It saved countless American lives.”
The Oval Office declared Pence, the overwhelming winner of the first nationally televised debate in Salt Lake City, Utah.
“Mike Pence won big,” the president said on Twitter.
He described Pence’s delivery as mostly flawless against what he described to be a blundering show from Harris.
“Mike Pence is doing great,” the president said on Twitter. “She [Harris] is a gaffe machine.”
Harris was forced to apologize after wrongly accusing the president of being disrespectful toward U.S. armed forces members by taking his private remarks out of context.
“I am sorry, Vice President Pence,” she can be heard saying in a video shared on Twitter.
