TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Former US Vice President Joe Biden released a political attack ad against Donald Trump Saturday, slamming his decision to play golf on Memorial Day Weekend amid an ever-rising death toll due to the coronavirus in the United States.
The 30-second video shows Trump playing golf at his Virginia club Saturday. The footage is interspersed with what appears to be frontline healthcare workers walking into hospital rooms, administering COVID-19 tests at drive-thrus and interacting with patients on stretchers.
There also appears to be a small red bar graph increasing in size as the number of coronavirus-related deaths hovers close to 100,000.
“The death toll is still rising,” the ad read. “The president is playing golf.’
Nearly 100,000 lives have been lost, and tens of millions are out of work.
As of Saturday afternoon, the US recorded 1.6 million confirmed cases of the virus and 96,983 deaths from the disease, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
