I think it would be fair to say everyone's positions have changed since the beginning of this.
No one knew at the beginning this many would die. Just like the last admin didn't know instead of focusing on Chine it should have been Europe at that time.

ETA: Just to get the facts straight. He never mentioned the travel ban in the tweet. And in the debate, he said his tweet was about Trump overall and not the travel band. Don't shoot the messenger.  :)

"We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus. We need to lead the way with science not Donald Trumps record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency."
Lol, he made those comments in response *to the travel ban* and only much much later tried to walk it back to be talking about Trump in general and not the travel ban specifically. He was one of many speaking out against the ban, it was opposing policy based on politics. Which is exactly why we have every reason to believe politics is still the driving force behind policies.

Do I have the wrong tweet? The tweet I posted is talking about his "record".
Now IHMO the travel ban triggered the tweet but he never mentioned it.

He is trying everything he can to get individuals vaccinated.
Maybe we will have Dr Death next.  :)
If he wanted to do that, he would have made all of the handouts this year contingent on being vaccinated. You'd have 99% compliance in no time. You'd have lines wrapping around pharmacies for their next stimmy check.
 
Instead he went down a far more divisive and legally questionable path of making employment contingent on being vaccinated.

Meh.

No it is facts without your commentary.
First you asked what changed and 770k+ deaths were not a good enough answer for you.
Just tell me what answer you want and we will be done.  :)

I guess you have to make it legal. Look at his mandate for private companies. That is running into roadblocks.

Oh come on. I said 770k death would be a perfectly acceptable answer IF HE WOULD USE IT.

770 would always be a good answer for me.

Because it's overreach to tell private companies who they can employ.
If the government wants to rain money on the vaxxed though, that's the government's choice.

That would just make the fake vax industry grow exponentially. What's spending $300-$500, if it earns you 10x that amount in handouts?

Maybe 770k+ deaths changed his position?

Meaning that the statements then were from not knowing how severe the disease was?

True, but he was just as bad last year. Bloomberg just managed to bomb the debates by being unprepared when he should have won easily.

I literally quoted a post where you questioned if you were looking at the right tweet...

Here, try this one instead.
