Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden's campaign appears to be pivoting to a tricky topic for the presidential hopeful ahead of the general election: the economy.

Standing alongside his wife Jill, the 77-year-old then presented a wreath of white roses at Delaware's War Memorial Plaza, before observing a moment of silence to commemorate the military personnel who fought in World War Two and the Korean War.

"Why don't you pick the best person who can do the best job, no matter who they are or what they look like?" he said.

He added: "Presidents are supposed to lead, not engage in folly and be falsely masculine".

Joe Biden has made his first public appearance since March, emerging from isolation to lay a wreath to mark Memorial Day at a park in Delaware. President Trump has declined to wear a mask while in public. Along with his wife and a Secret Service detail, Biden wore a black face mask, the color presumably symbolizing mourning. Trump later retweeted Hume.

While the head of state has actually taken a trip to states like Arizona and also MI, he criticised Mr Biden's stay-at-home marketing.

However, at ceremonies in Virginia and Maryland, Trump and First Lady Melania decided against face masks.

'It is a bit peculiar, though, that in his basement, right next to his wife, he's not wearing a mask.

The President has been told he is "no longer welcome" in MI after refusing to wear a face mask on camera while visiting one of the state's auto factories. So I think that there was a discrepancy there, ' she said.

President Trump and Democratic presidential hopeful Joseph R. Biden now have an unexpected competitor.

"He's a fool, an absolute fool to talk that way", he said. "He's missing something, man". On Tuesday, the President tweeted in response to California pushing to expand voting by mail, "There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent".

Trump plans on traveling to Florida for a rocket launch on Wednesday.

Many were quick to reference Biden's latest "gaffe", in which he let out that African-American voters who didn't pick him in November "ain't black"...

"First of all, you know, it was a mistake, number one". I shouldn't have been such a wise guy with him. "Never, ever, forget", he said through his face mask. I shouldn't get going.
