Last Sunday during the Democrat debate, Joe Biden falsely said President Trump rejected World Health Organization coronavirus testing kits.

As PolitiFact notes, “The WHO never offered to sell test kits to the United States… The countries WHO helped are ones that lack the virology lab horsepower that exists across the United States.”

Biden ad manipulates video to slam Trump

Last week, not only did Biden repeat a 3 Pinocchio claim that President Trump cut investments to global health, The Washington Post gave Biden 4 Pinocchio’s for his “blatant” manipulation of President Trump’s words in a campaign ad.

Reminder: President Trump did not call coronavirus a “hoax” like the Biden campaign ad conveyed.

And last month, the Associated Press called Biden out for his false claim about coronavirus readiness under the Trump admin. Under President Trump, “financing has increased” to both the CDC and NIH contrary to what Biden has said.
