Joe Biden tells Americans that universal masking would save tens of thousands of lives.

In this clip, former Vice President Joe Biden warns that an estimated 200,000 additional Americans are projected to die by the new year, basing this estimate on University of Washington’s widely used Coronavirus model.

  • Biden tells Americans they play an important part in stropping the spread of the virus, simply by wearing masks.
  • He says a national mask mandate would cut the estimated death toll from 200,000 to 100,000.
  • The Democratic presidential nominee, realistic about Trump’s handling of the pandemic says, “Folks, the president's first responsibility is to protect the American people, and he won't. It's utterly disqualifying.”
  • “Let me be clear: I trust vaccines, I trust the scientists, but I don't trust Donald Trump. At this moment, the American people can't, either.”
