Not to mention the president, the advertising message is clearly to condemn his handling of the crisis.
In a speech Tuesday, Biden was directly referred to the billionaire, blaming “the failure of its response” to the pandemic, and saying that he should listen to public health experts.

Biden unveils an ambitious plan for renewable energy
Joe Biden promised Tuesday to invest massively in renewable energies, a sector that will mobilise “millions of jobs” in the United States, with the ambition to arrive at an electrical output of their own in only 15 years.
“We’re going to make historic investments”, has assured the democratic candidate to the White House, which wants to be the champion of the fight against climate change in the face of Donald Trump to prevail in the election of November 3.
When the billionaire republican “think climate change, the single word which he thinks is “a hoax”. When I think of climate change, I think “jobs”. Unionized jobs are well paid that will put Americans back to work,” quipped Biden in his fief of Wilmington (Delaware).
The climate plan includes a program of construction of housing with low energy consumption, incentives for purchasing electric vehicles manufactured in the United States, or the passage of the fleet of government vehicles electric.
“These investments are “win-win” for this country, creating jobs, reducing energy costs and protecting our climate,” he said.
“Transforming the electric power sector u.s. to generate power without carbon pollution […] will be the largest provider of job creation and economic competitiveness in the 21st century”, launched the former vice-president.

In total, the public investment will go up to 2000 G$ over four years, according to the campaign materials of the candidate.
With this ambitious plan, the more aggressive that his program presented to the democratic primary, the centrist candidate hopes to satisfy the progressive wing of the party, he needs to win the presidential election.
It took the president Trump, who bet on fossil fuels, such as oil.
“It’s all Donald Trump and the republicans have to offer: policies that look to the past, which degrade the environment, which will affect the health of the country, which will slow down economic promises, while other countries will race in the head”, he warned.
Last week, Joe Biden, had unveiled a massive plan of 700 billions of dollars to revive the american economy after the crisis of the sars coronavirus.
If it is at the head of the national surveys, Joe Biden, however, is lagging behind in the economic sector, where Donald Trump is considered more able by the voters.
