The most likely candidate from the US Democratic Party in the upcoming elections, former vice president Joe Biden mistakenly counted 120 million coronavirus victims in the country. It is reported by the Daily Mail.
The incident occurred during a speech by Biden in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on Thursday, June 25. During his speech, the politician said that about 120 million people have already died from coronavirus in the United States. After that, he corrected himself, specifying that in fact about 120 thousand Americans became victims of the infection.
Nevertheless, the current president of the United States, Donald Trump, immediately responded to the mistake of his main opponent. In particular, he noted that such blunders are unacceptable for a person who is going to become head of state, and called the former vice president “depressingly stupid.” “Whenever he speaks, he cannot connect two sentences … I mean that this person does not know how to talk at all,” Trump said.
Biden has repeatedly made mistakes in his public speeches or interviews. So, in May, a politician in an interview with radio host Lenard McKelvey said that he cannot call himself black if he supports the current US president Donald Trump: “If you find it difficult to decide whether you or for Trump, then you are not black.” Before that, he also stated that since 2007, 150 million Americans have been killed with firearms (with a total US population of 327 million) and that he intends to fight for the post of senator, not president.
