#JoeBidenJob: Can Biden make America great again? Internet says he'll trump Trump with ‘national vaccine program’
As the run-up to the November presidential election heats up, Joe Biden, as some consider, seems to have an upper hand and is somewhere ahead of the game. Current US President Donald Trump has faced immense criticism for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, which has claimed over 144,000 lives in the country. He has received further backlash for putting pressure on governors to reopen schools in all districts, thus endangering the lives of children.
On Thursday, July 23, #JoeBidenJob began trending on Twitter after Internet users expressed their confidence in the Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee ahead of the polls. One user wrote: “Bringing back compassion and empathy to the presidency? That’s a #JoeBidenJob”. Another wrote, “Restoring honor, decency, and respect to the United States? That's a #JoeBidenJob.” One of them even wrote, “A national vaccine program? That’s a #JoeBidenJob.”
The health crisis is the most important issue that the citizens are concerned about. In his official website, Biden has shared ‘The Biden Plan to Combat Coronavirus (Covid-19) and Prepare for Future Global Health Threats', under which one of the points state: "Ensure the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority are swiftly accelerating the development of rapid diagnostic tests, therapeutics and medicines, and vaccines. NIH must be responsible for the clinical trial networks and work closely with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on trial approvals."
In a recent video released on Twitter from his official account, Biden says, “Donald Trump’s own staff admits that he fails the most important test of being the American President: the duty to care — for you, for all of us.”
Twitter, as usual, had a field day in criticizing Trump and supporting Biden's bid for the presidency. One user wrote: “Nearly 12 years ago Barack Obama was elected for the job to save America from a crisis. Once again we find ourselves in a crisis. We need a President that will do his job. It’s a #JoeBidenJob.” Another said, “Withdrawing US forces from US cities may have to be a #JoeBidenJob — Trump says he could send as many as 75,000 federal agents to US cities.” A hopeful user wrote: “Healing and bringing together the country to heal us from 4 years of this crazy scumbag. That's a #JoeBidenJob.” Concurring the same, a Twitter user said, “#JoeBidenJob Honoring our nurses, food service workers, doctors, EMT, police, firefighters and everyone else who risked getting sick in order for our economy to keep moving.”
As reported by ABC News, an official said Biden is preparing for a range of realities when it comes to dealing with the virus if he is elected President. Barack Obama and Biden can be seen in a ‘Socially Distant’ conversation released on July 23 on the latter’s YouTube channel. In the video, Biden says, “Can you imagine when you are president, standing up and saying, ‘It’s not my responsibility, I take no responsibility?'”, to which Obama replies, “Those words didn’t come out of our mouths while we were in office.”
A USA Today report states that Ken Farnaso, a Trump campaign spokesman, said the President has tapped into the real concerns of everyday Americans since he was elected in 2016, while Biden's lengthy tenure in the Senate and vice presidency left him out of touch.
