Vice President Mike Pence has again defended the Trump administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic, telling "Life, Liberty & Levin" in an interview airing Sunday night that he is "absolutely convinced" the White House's actions "literally saved hundreds of thousands of American lives."
Pence also responded to Democratic nominee Joe Biden's criticism of the administration, reminding host Mark Levin that the former vice president criticized Trump's decision at the end of January to restrit air travel to the U.S. from China.
"That decision alone saved countless American lives because it bought us invaluable time to stand up the greatest national mobilization since World War II," the vice president said. "It’s important the American people understand that Joe Biden criticized the president’s decision in January. He said it was xenophobic. He said it was hysterical. In fact, he wrote a week earlier that closing down travel from China or any other country would actually make things worse.
"But the truth is it bought us time, Mark, to reinvent testing," Pence added. "We’ve now done 120 million tests around the country ... We saw the development and the production and the distribution of literally billions of supplies. No American who ever required a ventilator was ever denied a ventilator. No American who required an ICU bed was ever denied an ICU bed."
