WSJ Finds Biden’s COVID Plan is Awfully Similar to Trump’s

The Wall Street Journal has pointed out that Joe Biden’s plan to address COVID is elected is similar to President Trump’s.

Many of the recommendations have actually already been implemented by the Trump administration.

According to Town Hall:

Picking up on a theme that the Trump campaign has been advancing for months, the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal noted over the weekend that for all of Joe Biden’s complaints about the Trump administration’s COVID response, the ‘better’ course of action the Democratic nominee is recommending actually hews rather closely to what the incumbent’s team has already done — and is currently doing.  We’ve already fact-checked some of the Biden-Harris ticket’s claims and comparisons regarding Coronavirus.  This editorial adds some additional color and context:

The Democratic nominee is promising a better virus strategy, which would be wonderful if he had one. But the virus plan he’s pushing is little different on the substance than what the Trump Administration is already doing…Mr. Trump’s virus policy in practice has been better than his critics claim, and Mr. Biden isn’t offering better ideas. Start with testing. Mr. Biden promises to “develop and deploy rapid tests with results available immediately.” Great—the Food and Drug Administration in the past week has approved two new rapid tests that can be scaled up quickly. The FDA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention botched the initial testing rollout. And earlier this summer, shortages of chemical reagents and lab equipment led to delays in processing tests amid a surge of infections. But supply-chain hiccups are gradually being worked out. The U.S. is now conducting 700,000 or so tests a day, up from about 400,000 in early June and 100,000 in late March…

Mr. Biden is also calling for “a coordinated, country-wide, future-facing national effort to acquire, produce, and distribute PPE, test kits and machines, lab supplies, and other critical supplies, including by fully utilizing the authorities” under the Defense Production Act. The Administration is already doing nearly all of this. The Pentagon this spring issued $259 million in contracts to 3M, Honeywell and Owens & Minor to produce tens of millions of N95 face masks for medical workers. U.S. companies like GM and New Balance have retrofitted plants to produce ventilators and PPE, and the Administration has used the Defense Production Act to allocate more tests and protective equipment to hot spots. Mr. Biden wants to hire 100,000 federal workers to track down contacts of people who get sick. States are already doing this, though public-health officials say contract tracing is of little use when the virus is widespread in communities.

The Journal’s editors also point out how Biden is pledging to fast track the production and distribution of an effective vaccine. Maybe Biden could refer to this idea as “operation warp speed,” which is its official name under the Trump administration — and on which there has been very significant progress.  Of course, Team Trump should avoid politicizing the vaccine process because nonsense like this will sow widespread doubts about any splashy announcements that could arrive before election day.  Exactly this:

The piece did note a couple of differences. One would be a blank check to unions where teachers would be paid even if they refused to teach in the classroom.

The second difference would be the imposition of a national mask mandate even outdoor.

  1. Look……so far slow sleepy Joe Biden has excelled in several things….criminal activities with and without his son, lies oh so many lies, plagiarism, being too lazy and afraid to come out of his basement, choosing a marxist black woman for his VP, I could list many more but, you get the picture!

  2. Biden doesn’t have an original thought in his head, other than the leftist things being fed to him by his radical socialist handlers.

    1. That and a finger in the air to see which way the political winds are blowing. Not a word about about the violence and looting on the streets for months until CNN finally notes that polls are showing people are not supporting the destruction, then he and Kamala call out the violence.

  3. I don’t blame Joe, he’s not with us anyway and really hasn’t been for a while now. But I do blame the democrat party, they don’t have an original thought in their heads. They are so focused on being anti-Trump and anti-progressive, they have become the failing party. Their spell with the likes of BLM and Antifa have outed their true intentions.

  4. Let’s be honest,creepy,sleepy,racist,perv,puppet,china/ukrainian,slo,joe is dealing with stage 3 dementia. Do u really think this guy is all there, every time he opens that pie hole, he says something off the wall or stupid. Even his bff bathhouse barry soetoro, says not only joe, doesn’t have it, he still doesn’t get it, and that slo,joe can and will fk up this election before it even gets here, and we all agree. Joe will not make it to the election, because even the dummycraps, know he stands no chance of winning.They will have to substitute some one, because a warm body,empty suit, trojan horse,airhead will not cut it. The dumbocrap base is even jumping ship to vote for Trump, don’t these idiots ever learn from past mistakes, no of course they don’t. There still listening to hildebeast,and obummer/mikey that got our great president, elected before, so as we always say, thank u again for re=electeing our great president for 8 more yrs, we know u will love that.

  5. If you want all the Covid-19 plans advocated by Many Hands Biden vote for Trump. He is already implementing them and has been since Trump was called a racist for banning people from China at the beginning of the pandemic when little Andy “Il Duce” Cuomo said everybody should go out to dinner at a Chinese restaurant. We all know how effective Cuomo was at killing off old people so the could vote Democrat for all eternity.

  6. Biden is famous for stealing from others. Plagiarism is his middle name, and runs all through his life.

  7. cnn and msnbc will tell their die hard democrat audience that Trump stole it from hide’n Biden!!!
    And they’ll believe it!!!!

    1. They will believe it because the left wing media doesn’t tell them what Trump is doing, they only try to make people hate him.

  8. When you put things in context, 60 million getting the swine flu is 10 times as many as who got COVID, and they stopped testing early. They lucked out that it wasn’t as deadly.

  9. Unfortunately, most voters planning to vote for Bite Me will never know this inasmuch as liberal social media either block conservatives making comments or do not allow rebuttal to their made up articles.

  10. The only difference is biden would implement his plan if elected and President Trump implemented his plan months ago.

  11. Looks like Kamila is fitting right in, In her convention speech, everything she said about Trump is a lie. How can our countries representatives openly lie to the people? do the democrats think we are all fools and can not see what’s going on! real democrats are abandoning their party in droves. Imagine picking a vice president because of her color not for his or her ability to do the job, especially a BLM Marxist loving lying idiot.

  12. The Biden campaign has gone from being a laughable joke, to being cruel elder abuse. Joe has never been known for his insight or intellect, even when he had his mind, which is clearly no longer the case, but he has been reduced to a clown caricature of his former self. The party saw fit to substitute a surrogate in Kamala Harris, who garnered little to no interest in the Dem primary. It’s just plain mean to Joe, and positively disrespectful to Democrats. They must believe that you are even dumber than I do.

  13. How could Sleepy Joe and his Hoe come up with any thing original? They both suck and DJT will wipe the floor with them in Nov. The problem is though, if lightning actually strikes and the lunatic left turns out in big numbers to elect Joe and da Hoe, she will toss him under the bus so fast and have him removed under the 25th Amendment so she can plant her self righteous arse in the White House! Let’s not forget that the Hoe Harris comes from a long lineage of Jamaican slave owners and she is NOT African American as she claims!

  14. Joe Biden actually proved in the past that he can come up with great plans. He even has a special name for his work method, plagiarism. It’s worked many times in the past for him, so why stop it now.

  15. The only decision Joe “the sniffer” Biden made in his 47+ years on the public dole, that was not plagiarism, is the selection of a Half-Black Woman as his running mate.
    Remember, Joe lying earlier in the political season when he promised and repeated many times that he will select a Black Woman for his running mate. WELL, HE DID NOT.
    Kamala (correct Indian pronunciation is CUM LA) Harris, is a half baked black in as much as her mother was from India. She has always identified herself with the African American community to avail of the added black privileges it afforded her, including Willie Brown.
    This is the second time that the so called Progressive Party, has shown its regressive mind set by duping the African American community.

  16. Most people were already well aware of that — what took you people so long ????? If you listen and are able to comprehend –the ol’ groper steals lines from several people, changes a few words and call it his. The whole demoSCUM party has NOTHING new or original to offer America — just same old socialism, racism and corruption they have been preaching for years.

  17. So when is Biden going to be investigated for his roll in the colluding and taking money from foreign countries?????

  18. Creepy,slo joe u are an embarrassment, u don’t have a dam clue what the hell comes out of that pie hole of yours.U plagerize everything, u are an unfit,senile,old fool, some one like your buddy,bff bathhouse barry soetoro, should save u from yourself. He knows your unfit,and mentally out of touch, but wants to humiliate, u because he doesn’t think u have a chance against Trump, and we all agree.U belong in a nursing home, or back in your basement, spare youself of becoming a real nincompoop, with all them gaffes, there not funny anymore, there sad and scary.

  19. Creepy,sleepy,racist,perv,china/ukrainian,hiden biden,slo,joe shows us every day his mind is on vacation, or gone. This guy is now plagerizing Trump, the incoherant,incompetent, jackass can’t think for himself, it’s not funny anymore, it is scary and dangerous, that the radical.liberals, would put this guy next to a nuke button, never in this lifetime.
