Trump and his campaign are seeking to tie Biden and Harris to the “radical left,” even though both have supported more moderate agendas than several of their former competitors in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.

In their first joint public appearance as running mates, Biden and Harris both attacked Trump during their speeches from Delaware on Wednesday.

Harris accused the president of stoking racial division and slammed his handling of the coronavirus pandemic that has infected more than 5 million people in the U.S., claiming more than 160,000 lives.

“The president’s mismanagement of the pandemic has plunged us into the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, and we’re experiencing a moral reckoning with racism and systemic injustice that has brought a new coalition of conscience to the streets of our country,” Harris said. “America is crying out for leadership.”
