Joe Biden is targeting President Donald Trump for playing golf on Memorial Day weekend as the coronavirus death toll rose to almost 100,000.

The former vice president unveiled a 30-second digital ad on Twitter Saturday night showing Trump playing a round of golf at his Virginia club earlier in the day.

“Nearly 100,000 Americans have died,” says the ad which had garnered over 2 million views by late Sunday morning. “The death toll is still rising. The president is playing golf.”

The footage is interspersed with what appears to be healthcare workers administering to patients and administering COVID-19 tests. A bar graph depicts the number of coronavirus-related deaths hovering close to 100,000. 

The United States has recorded 1.6 million confirmed casesof the virus and more than 96,000 deaths as of Saturday, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. 

Trump frequently bashed former President Barack Obama for spending too much time playing golf, but has outpaced is predecessor.
