President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden had what Trump described as a "wonderful, warm," phone call Monday about the federal government's response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The conversation came after news media said Biden was going to call Trump, then Trump apparently did not receive a call for days. The two traded jabs on Twitter about the anticipated conversation, with Biden saying that the Democratic National Convention should be held virtually and Trump's coronavirus response.
Later Monday, Trump said he "appreciated" the call, and that Biden had offered recommendations on handling the pandemic.
"It doesn't mean that I agree with those suggestions," Trump said, "but certainly he had suggestions, and I also told him some of the things we're doing. But the conversation was a friendly, very friendly conversation."
