Former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday ripped President Donald Trump as “heartless” and “cruel” for his administration’s legal attempts to overturn the Affordable Care Act during the coronavirus pandemic.

"I think it's cruel, it's heartless, it's callous and it's all because in my view he can't abide the thought of letting stand one of President [Barack] Obama's greatest achievements, the Affordable Care Act," Biden said during a speech on Thursday, according to The Hill.

The former vice president and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee was speaking in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, an important swing state in the upcoming election. It came just after the U.S. Supreme Court’s deadline for the Trump administration to file a legal brief supporting a lawsuit brought by a group of Republican-led states that would overturn the entire law.

Biden said on Thursday that if Republicans are successful, then people who are still recovering from the virus "would have their peace of mind stolen at that moment they needed it most.”

He also blasted Trump’s criticism of coronavirus testing, saying much more is needed and that the president is “like a child who can't believe this has happened to him.”
