Former Vice President Joe Biden announced on Tuesday that his campaign would not hold any public rallies ahead of the general election, citing the threat of the coronavirus.
Biden, who has made few public appearances in recent months because of the pandemic, told reporters in Wilmington, Delaware that his campaign would not take the risk associated with potentially spreading the virus at rally-style events.
“This is the most unusual campaign, I think, in modern history,” the former vice president said.
In his remarks, the former vice president accused Trump of having failed “to mobilize an effective” response to the crisis and thereby failing to “protect the American people.”
The former vice president’s pledge to not hold campaign rallies is seen as an extension of that message, especially as Trump has come under fire for holding a mass gathering in Tulsa, Oklahoma last week.
