Joe Biden indicated during a CNN town hall Thursday that President Trump is responsible for every single coronavirus death.
"If the president had done his job... had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive," Biden told the audience in Pennsylvania.
Meanwhile, The Washington Post exclaimed Biden "is making this up."
Biden's remarks come as Trump told Bob Woodward in February that the coronavirus was "deadly stuff" while publicly comparing it to seasonal flu, according to excerpts from some of the interviews that were published by The Washington Post this month.
In an interview on "The Daily Briefing" on Thursday, Woodward told host Dana Perino that Trump "failed as a leader to warn the American people about the dangers" of COVID-19.
