(ThePatriotSource.com)- Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden, won’t even leave his basement to accept the nomination from his own party if new reports are to be believed. The Associated Press reported on Wednesday that Biden will not travel to the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee over fears of contracting the Chinese coronavirus.
“That’s according to a Democrat with knowledge of the decision who spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday on condition of anonymity to discuss planning,” the Associated Press writes. “The move is the latest example of the pandemic’s sweeping effects on the 2020 presidential election and the latest blow to traditional party nominating conventions that historically have marked the start of fall general election campaigns.”
President Donald Trump recently announced that he would put the health of the American people first and cancel the Republican National Convention. Despite this, though, the president is expected to travel to a private event attended by delegates where he will be nominated as the party’s official candidate. Biden can’t even do that!
Tyler Page, a reporter for Bloomberg News, told his Twitter audience that Biden wouldn’t be traveling to Milwaukee over fears of catching the Chinese coronavirus.
SCOOP: Joe Biden is no longer traveling to Milwaukee to accept the Democratic nomination. His plans to travel to the convention have been scrapped because of coronavirus concerns.

In an official statement published on Wednesday, DNC officials said that the “worsening coronavirus pandemic” meant that convention officials had chosen to cancel speaking engagements. Of course, they made this decision long after the RNC made the decision to cancel their event. If the Republicans hadn’t been brave enough to do it, don’t you think the Democrats would have gone ahead with speaking engagements but kept an audience of ten people as long as they were inside their own special circles?
Speaking engagements – including Biden – were cancelled “in order to prevent risking the health of our host community as well as the convention’s production teams, security officials, community partners, media and others necessary to orchestrate the event.”
If Biden can’t even accept his nomination, how does he expect to run the country? From the basement of the White House?
