Presumptive US Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden says President Donald Trump does not want to “do the hard work” of getting the coronavirus under control so the nation’s schools can open safely.

In an interview this week with Phoenix television station ABC15 Arizona, Biden said Trump, “just wants to to order schools to open because he’s afraid if he doesn’t, it will hurt his reelection chances.”

Biden says that he would provide funding to schools to make sure that they can protect students and teachers in the classrooms.
