Biden Estimates 200 Million People Will Die From COVID After He Finished His Speech
Joe Biden made another gaffe in a speech where spoke about President Trumps response to the Coronavirus.
"If Donald Trump has his way, the complications from COVID-19, which are well beyond what they should be -- it's estimated that 200 million people have died -- probably by the time I finish this talk," he said during a campaign speech.
The U.S. population is estimated to be slightly 328 million people, meaning nearly two-thirds of the nation would have perished from the disease by now if Biden's verbal screw-up was true.
This isn't the first time Biden has mixed up his math and made head-scratching remarks about the coronavirus mortality rate.
Back in June, Biden wrongly claimed 120 million people had died as a result of COVID-19, during a campaign stop in Pennsylvania.
“People don’t have a job, people don’t know where to go, they don’t know what to do,” he said. “Now we have over 120 million dead from COVID.”
