“We are not prepared for a pandemic,” Biden said on Twitter in 2019. “[President Donald Trump] has rolled back progress President Obama and I made to strengthen global health security. We need leadership that builds public trust, focuses on real threats, and mobilizes the world to stop outbreaks before they reach our shores.”
