"My focus is just dealing with this crisis right now".

Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden misrepresented the approval rating for the president during a live video stream and was instantly fact-checked by a reporter.

Biden's comments came after the Sanders campaign announced the Vermont senator is ready for a 12th debate. There are no more primary debates on the schedule at the moment.

Former Vice President and current Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden responded to a Bernie Sanders campaign statement about a potential debate in April by saying, "We've had enough debates, I think we should get on with this". "I think we should get on with this".

Why it matters: Bernie Sanders' campaign said yesterday that he plans to attend an April debate - signaling he has no plans of dropping out.

Although Sanders won the Democrats Abroad primary this week, Biden has 1,174 pledged delegates to the senator's 862.

During his press conference, Biden was critical of Trump's suggestion that social distancing guidelines should be eased soon and that he would like to see the country "opened up" by Easter.

Biden has been trying to boost his visibility this week, in an effort to counter Trump's dominance of the airwaves. A total of 1,991 delegates are required to become the 2020 Democratic standard-bearer outright.
