WASHINGTON - Joe Biden says President Donald Trump is a “fool” who is “stoking deaths” for suggesting that wearing a mask in public to combat the spread of the coronavirus is anything other than a sign of leadership.

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee on Tuesday also knocked Trump for “this macho stuff” in shunning masks.

Biden's comments came a day after he wore a black face mask at a park near their Delaware home to lay a wreath at a veterans' memorial for Memorial Day.

Trump later retweeted a post that appeared to make fun of Biden in his mask.

The president does not wear a face mask in public.
