Mainstream media has admitted Joe Biden is inflating his administration’s efforts to combat the coronavirus pandemic. Both the Associated Press and the New York Times released a “fact check” Thursday, shortly after Biden’s speech, and pointed out how he exaggerated the number of COVID-19 deaths.

Biden said the number of deaths is “more than WWI, WWII, the Vietnam War and 9/11 combined.” In reality, however, the nearly 530,000 deaths from the pandemic is smaller than the 580,000 people who died in those three wars and the nearly 3,000 people who died in the September 11 attacks.

Biden also downplayed the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus.

“Two months ago this country didn’t have nearly enough vaccine supply to vaccinate all or anywhere near all of the American public,” he claimed. “But soon we will.”

The Government Accountability Office reported that by the end of last year the Trump administration had ordered at least 800 million vaccine doses, which should have been delivered by July 31. According to Kaiser Health News, that would have been enough to vaccinate more than 400 million people, which is larger than the U.S. population.
