During an interview Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Joe Biden suggested that President Trump needs to do more to combat the coronavirus pandemic, including opening enrollment for Obamacare early and doing research to find out why the virus is impacting African-Americans disproportionately. STEPHANOPOULOS: And your campaign videos have been quite tough on the president. You say his failures, his incompetence are going to cost lives. Is that what’s happening now? BIDEN: Well, look, what I have been saying is that he’s moving too slow. The virus is not his fault, but the response is his responsibility. Look, there are a few things he can do — he can immediately fully implement the Defense Production Act, which I and many others called for a long time ago. And he’s just getting underway with it. There’s still no Defense supply — Production Act for gloves, masks, all the things first responders need. We should create a bank defense production act. We have got to get those small business loans out. You saw what American Express did — I mean, excuse me, Bank of America did. They came out and said unless you already have loans with us, unless you already have worked with us, unless you have a credit card with us we’re not going to — even though they’re government-guaranteed loans, we’re not going to process those loans. We have got to save jobs. We’ve got to save people’s businesses. And they have to exponentially ramp up testing. We have been talking about 4 million tests are going to be available. Look where is all this — where is it? What’s being done? You’ve got to open up enrollment for Obamacare. A lot of people don’t have insurance. This president is trying to take away Obamacare across the board, which will leave people naked to this problem that we’re facing. And we have to finally get some data how this Coronavirus is really hurting African-Americans and minority communities. These are things that should be done now, but you need a supply commander in charge of it all. And right out of the White House, right out — in direct response to the president so we know where to get what we have to get and get it quickly.
