WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Joe Biden is taking aim at Donald Trump’s fitness for the Oval Office, suggesting the Republican president has abdicated his duty to protect U.S. troops facing Russian enemies abroad and American citizens facing a pandemic and economic calamity at home.

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee said Tuesday that Trump has “a lot to answer for” concerning news reports that he was advised as early as March 2019 of intelligence that suggested Russia was offering bounties to the Taliban for the deaths of Americans.

Biden also accused Trump of “waving the white flag” as coronavirus cases spike nationwide and the death toll surpasses 125,000.
