During the Vice Presidential debate on Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence pointed out that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s coronavirus response plan looked similar to President Trump’s, and claimed it looked like “plagiarism.”
“The reality is when you look at the Biden plan, it reads and awful lot like what President Trump and I and our task force have been doing every step of the way. Quite frankly, when I look at their plan, which talks about advancing testing, creating new PPE, developing a vaccine, it looks a little bit like plagiarism, which is something Joe Biden knows a little bit about,” Pence said, referencing Biden’s history of plagiarism accusations dating back decades.
“I think the American people know that this is a president who has put the health of American people first. And the American people, I believe in my heart, can be proud of the sacrifices they have made. It saved countless American lives,” Pence said.
