Mike Pence Accuses Joe Biden Of Plagiarizing Trump’s Covid-19 Response Plan | NBC News

THIS EVENT, AND SENATOR HARRIS,
IT’S A PRIVILEGE TO BE ON THE
STAGE WITH YOU.
OUR NATION’S GONE THROUGH A VERY
CHALLENGING TIME THIS YEAR, BUT
I WANT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO
KNOW THAT FROM THE VERY FIRST
DAY, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HAS
PUT THE HEALTH OF AMERICA FIRST.
BEFORE THERE WERE MORE THAN FIVE
CASES IN THE UNITED STATES, ALL
PEOPLE WHO HAD RETURNED FROM
CHINA, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP
DID WHAT NO OTHER AMERICAN
PRESIDENT HAD EVER DONE, AND
THAT WAS HE SUSPENDED ALL TRAVEL
FROM CHINA, THE SECOND LARGEST
ECONOMY IN THE WORLD.
NOW, SENATOR, JOE BIDEN OPPOSED
THAT DECISION.
HE SAID IT WAS XENOPHOBIC AND
HYSTERICAL.
I CAN TELL YOU HAVING LED THE
WHITE HOUSE CORONAVIRUS TASK
FORCE THAT THAT DECISION, ALONE,
BY PRESIDENT TRUMP BOUGHT US
INVALUABLE TIME TO STAND UP THE
GREATEST NATIONAL MOBILIZATION
SINCE WORLD WAR II.
AND I BELIEVE IT SAVED HUNDREDS
OF THOUSANDS OF AMERICAN LIVES
BECAUSE WITH THAT TIME, WE WERE
ABLE TO REINVENT TESTING, MORE
THAN 115 MILLION TESTS HAVE BEEN
DONE TO DATE.
WE WERE ABLE TO SEE TO THE
DELIVERY OF BILLIONS OF SUPPLIES
SO OUR DOCTORS AND NURSES HAD
THE RESOURCES, THE SUPPORT, THEY
NEEDED.
AND WE BEGAN REALLY BEFORE THE
MONTH OF FEBRUARY, WE STARTED TO
DEVELOP A VACCINE AND TO DEVELOP
MEDICINES AND THERAPEUTICS THAT
HAVE BEEN SAVING LIVES ALL ALONG
THE WAY.
UNDER PRESIDENT TRUMP’S
LEADERSHIP, OPERATION WARP
SPEED, WE BELIEVE WE’LL HAVE
LITERALLY TENS OF MILLIONS OF
DOSES OF VACCINE BEFORE THE END
OF THIS YEAR.
THE REALITY IS WHEN YOU LOOK AT
THE BIDEN PLAN, IT READS AN
AWFUL LOT LIKE WHAT PRESIDENT
TRUMP AND I AND OUR TASK FORCE
HAVE BEEN DOING EVERY STEP OF
THE WAY.
AND QUITE FRANKLY, WHEN I LOOK
AT THEIR PLAN THAT TALKS ABOUT
ADVANCING TESTING, CREATING NEW
PPE, DEVELOPING A VACCINE, IT
LOOKS A LITTLE BIT LIKE
PLAGIARISM WHICH IS SOMETHING
JOE BIDEN KNOWS A LITTLE BIT
ABOUT.
I THINK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE KNOW
THIS IS A PRESIDENT WHO HAS
PUT —
>> THANK YOU, PRESIDENT.
>> — THE HEALTH OF AMERICA
FIRST AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, I
BELIEVE WITH MY HEART, CAN BE
