US Democratic Senator, who is running for presidential race, Bernie Sanders slammed President Donald Trump over his response to the coronavirus pandemic, accusing him over undermining his own scientists.
Trump “underestimated” and “diminished the initial threat facing this country,” Sanders said in an interview on CNN following the 11th Democratic debate with Joe Biden on Sunday.
“The truth of the matter is that you’ve got a president who is arrogant” and “who is literally undermining the good work” of government scientists and public health experts dealing with the outbreak
Sanders said that a “president who has a brain in his head would have brought the scientists together,” he said referring to Trump.
Sanders Says Won’t Drop out
Later in the interview, Sanders, who is trailing Biden in the delegate count, was asked about his path ahead in the process — and he didn’t suggest he was dropping out any time soon.
“The path ahead is to bring as many people who do not traditionally vote into the political process,” Sanders said.
Asked if he was helping to bring those people in so they could vote for Biden, Sanders answered in the negative.
“They’re not going to vote for Biden,” he said.
