Kamala Harris Slams Trump/Pence's Handling of COVID-19
Separated by two plates of plexiglass, Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris met Wednesday in the only vice presidential debate of the campaign season. Pence, who heads the White House coronavirus task force, repeatedly defended the Trump administration's handling of the crisis as the U.S. death toll from COVID-19 nears 212,000 and millions of people remain out of work. The debate also took place against the backdrop of a White House outbreak that has infected President Trump and dozens of other senior figures. "The White House has had more cases than the country of Yemen recently, than Vietnam, than New Zealand," says Dr. Craig Spencer, director of global health in emergency medicine at Columbia University Medical Center. "How can we expect the White House to keep the U.S. safe if it can't keep the White House safe?"
