In late September, during a campaign speech, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden claimed that an estimated 200 million people had already died from the coronavirus.
Joe Biden’s running mate from the Democratic Party, Kamala Harris, has made a campaign stop in Charlotte, North Carolina.
In her speech, Senator Harris took a strong stance against the US president and encouraged voters to get out and cast their ballot.
However, what really attracted the attention of those who observed the speech is that Joe Biden’s VP pick claimed that 220 million Americans had died from COVID-19 – that is 2/3 of the whole US population, according to 2019 data.
Kamala Harris is starting to get just as confused as Joe Biden.
She just falsely claimed that 220 million Americans (more than two-thirds of the country) have died in the past few months. pic.twitter.com/BjoOmFMSfG
