President Trump Invites Phone Call From Prominent Democrat in Virus Fight

When the going gets tough, the tough get going.  And who better to exemplify the idea of tough than Americans.  We’re the nation that brought you cowboys and skyscrapers both.  We are daring before breakfast and downright courageous by the time we’re done with our first pot of coffee.

In the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, Americans are uniting in ways we’ve not seen in some time.  Food banks and charitable labor organizations are working with local leaders on plans to get money into the hands of those who need it most.

And in this time of need, unity is on the rise as well.  Even President Trump, whose gift for bombast sometimes gets in the way of a handshake, is now inviting help from across the aisle.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday at the White House that he would welcome a phone call from former Vice President Joe Biden about fighting the coronavirus.

Trump was asked by a reporter at the White House press briefing room whether he would speak with Biden.

“Absolutely,” Trump replied. “I’d love to speak with him too … I always found him to be a nice guy, I don’t know him very well frankly, but I think he’s probably a nice guy.

The president indicated, however, that the Vice President should call him, not the other way around.

“If he’d like to call, I’d absolutely take his call,” Trump said. “You can tell him.”

Biden has previously stated that Trump should place a call to former President Barack Obama for help on the COVID-19 issue.
