President Donald Trump claims to be on the mend after COVID-19 landed him in the hospital Saturday, and Democratic nominee Joe Biden hopes he’ll put that newfound energy to use implementing a national policy to contain the coronavirus instead of just “tweeting campaign messages.”

Speaking Monday in Miami, Biden called on Trump to “listen to the scientists” and support a nationwide mask mandate.

“My prayers continue to be with the President and the First Lady for their health and safety as they, like so many American families, are dealing with COVID-19,” Biden said. “I was glad to see the President speaking and recording videos over the weekend.”

“Now that he’s busy tweeting campaign messages,” Biden added, “I would ask him to do this: Listen to the scientists. Support masks. Support a mask mandate nationwide. Require masks in every federal building and facility, and in interstate travel. Urge every governor and mayor to do the same. We know it saves lives.”

Trump tweeted Monday that he plans to return to the White House despite White House physician Sean Conley’s analysis that “he may not entirely be out of the woods yet.” 

A growing outbreak of the virus has ensnared more than a dozen of the president’s frequent contacts. A packed White House Rose Garden event on Sept. 26, where Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett for a Supreme Court seat, seems likely to have been a superspreader event.
