Over 100 thousand Americans are dead and over 40 million are unemployed in the face of the virus that's upended daily life in the United States.

President Donald Trump continues to blame China, where the virus originated, for the amount of cases in the United States.

This is despite the fact that Trump repeatedly dismissed the threat posed by the virus, praised China's transparency on the matter, pushed against widespread testing measures in order to keep the number of diagnosed cases low, and repeatedly ignored warnings of the virus in his briefings. Even now, he discourages the recommendations of his own health experts, such as wearing masks.

The existence of the virus is not Trump's fault, but the failure to react to it—and to prepare for it—is.

Now, a tweet from Trump's presumptive Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, is highlighting the difference between the two.

In a tweet from October 25, 2019—about two months before the world's first diagnosed case of the virus—Biden warned that the United States wasn't prepared for a global pandemic.

The same day, Trump was tweeting to Apple CEO Tim Cook about the shortcomings of the swipe feature on iPhones.

Check it out.

Biden's tweet, featuring an article from the Washington Post, warns:

"We are not prepared for a pandemic. Trump has rolled back progress President Obama and I made to strengthen global health security. We need leadership that builds public trust, focuses on real threats, and mobilizes the world to stop outbreaks before they reach our shores."

Meanwhile, Trump's tweet gripes:

"To Tim: The Button on the IPhone was FAR better than the Swipe!"

Biden's deference to science and warnings that we weren't prepared couldn't have presented a starker contrast.

Trump's pandemic response continues to fail.

Stop the stupidity. Are you registered to vote?
