Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., called out Joe Biden for pulling negative campaign ads after President Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis, arguing that the president wouldn’t have offered the same sympathy.
“Why would Biden delay or suspend his campaign when we know Trump would’ve had ads up by noon today ridiculing Biden for testing positive? Get it together,” Omar tweeted late Friday.
The Biden campaign reportedly said on Friday that it would pull negative ads, although The New York Times reported that it might take several days before some ads stop airing. A campaign official claimed the decision was made before news surfaced that Trump was being taken to Walter Reed Medical Center, where he arrived on Friday.
Trump’s diagnosis provoked a range of reactions, including blame and criticism. Omar, on Friday, said she wouldn’t wish the virus on anyone, and then proceeded to criticize the president’s record on the issue.
