[Ed. – Translation: Trump won’t sit still for having the election stolen, and won’t accept excuses for keeping the economy shut down as a way of crippling America beyond quick recovery.]
Over the course of 24 hours, the presumptive Democratic nominee stepped up his rhetoric against President Donald Trump, warning he could try to steal the election. His campaign organized a petition pressing Facebook to boost its efforts to prevent the spread of misinformation. And he released a plan to restart an economy crippled by the coronavirus in a way that he says won’t make Americans choose between their health and livelihoods.
The quick succession of developments was a signal of Biden’s growing desire to become more assertive on multiple fronts. …
“Trump has basically had a one-point plan: Open businesses,” Biden said Thursday at an economic roundtable in Philadelphia, where he announced a plan to reopen the economy. “It does nothing to keep workers safe, to keep businesses able to stay open, and secondly it does very little to increase consumer confidence.”
