Transcript for Trump slammed for coronavirus response
Meanwhile, president trump is traveling to another battleground tonight, as dozens of members of his own campaign staff are now in quarantine after his rally in Tulsa. After Tulsa, several staff members testing positive. And here's Mary Bruce. Reporter: President trump in battleground Wisconsin today, eager to turn the page from the coronavirus, even as cases are surging. We've done an incredible, historic job. Reporter: But his rival, Joe Biden, today warning trump can't ignore the reality of this pandemic. Were going to be dealing with this for a long time. Trump can't wish it away. He can't bend it to meet his political wishes. There are no miracles coming. Reporter: The former vice president ripped into trump for complaining that more testing reveals a higher infection rate. Here's what I say. Testing is a double-edged sword. He thinks that finding out that more Americans are sick will make him look bad. That's what he's worried about. He's worried about looking bad. Reporter: Biden using his harshest language yet. He's like a child. He can't believe this has happened to him. All his whining and self-pity. This pandemic didn't happen to him. It happened to all of us. And his job isn't to whine about it, his job is to do something about it. To lead! Reporter: Trump is facing a health crisis and also an economic one. He has promised a third round of stimulus to help Americans through, but no plan yet. And today, new questions about how his administration handled the last round of payments. The government accountability office reporting the treasury department sent checks to more than a million dead people. $1.4 billion misspent. People like Eleanor burns, who died more than a year ago, but still received money. Her son Jim has been trying to send it back. The government still hasn't cashed the check yet. Reporter: The president's handling of the pandemic is taking a toll on him politically. Biden leads in one poll after another, including a new one showing him up 14 points nationally. And tonight, campaign sources tell us that staffers and volunteers who were at the president's Tulsa rally over the weekend are now working remotely. Dozens of them now in quarantine. This, of course, is on top of the dozens of secret service personnel who were at that rally who are also quarantining. The president, though, had promised that rally would be safe. David? Mary Bruce reporting in Mary, thank you.
