During the vice-presidential debate on Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence wiped the floor with Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, on the coronavirus pandemic.
Pence began by noting that Trump did “what no other American president had ever done, he suspended all travel from China.”
“Joe Biden opposed that decision, he said it was xenophobic and hysterical,” the vice president continued. Indeed, Biden did oppose the ban. Yet the China travel ban “saved hundreds of thousands of American lives.”
Next, Pence hit Biden on plagiarizing Trump’s policy response to the pandemic.
“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,” the vice president quipped, noting that Biden suspended his 1988 presidential campaign after confessing to plagiarism.

Indeed, Biden’s plans continued to echo Trump’s actions, even while the Democrat accused the president of failing to respond to the pandemic.
As the debate continued, Harris said she would not take a vaccine that President Donald Trump recommended, as if the president would encourage a vaccine that Dr. Anthony Fauci did not approve. Pence called her out on this.
