"I will just speak louder", Mason said.

During the interview, Biden referred to a recent Columbia University study that determined that had the country implemented nationwide shutdowns in early March could have saved almost 36,000 lives, telling Charlamagne tha God that had the Trump administration listened to him, among others, those people would be alive today.

"In the short period of time, it's only temporary, [if you] can't social distance, please wear the mask", Mr Hannity told viewers.


After Biden wore the mask on Memorial Day, Trump retweeted a post by a political commentator that featured an image of a masked Biden over the comment, "This might help explain why Trump doesn't like to wear a mask in public".

Politico reports that Trump later denied criticising Mr Biden for wearing a mask when he ventured outside. But he has also said, "I don't think I am going to be doing it". The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the wearing of cloth face coverings in public settings such as shops and petrol stations. "That means that they don't have to agree with me on everything, but they have to have the same basic approach to how we handle the economy and how we handle everything", Biden said during the fundraiser, according to The Washington Post.

While some of Sanders' toughest supporters continue to mistrust Warren, other campaign leaders have openly promoted her. California Rep Ro Khanna, who was one of the first sponsors and co-chair of Sanders' 2020 presidential campaign, recently wrote on Twitter that Biden should choose Warren, citing his work and influence on the latest coronavirus relief bill passed by House Democrats. It reminds me of the guys I grew up with playing ball. "They'd walk around with a ball in their hand, but didn't like to hit very much", Biden said.


It comes as more than 100,000 people have died from COVID-19 in the United States, according to figures from John Hopkins University.

The pandemic is on track to be the country's deadliest public health disaster since the 1918 flu pandemic, in which about 675,000 Americans died.

While he penned a piece in USA Today about the coronavirus, he did not declare that a pandemic had arrived in the US but wrote at the time that "the possibility of a pandemic is a challenge Donald Trump is unqualified to handle as president".
