Joe Biden makes his first gaffe as president-elect by saying ‘230 million thousand’ Americans have died during the COVID pandemic

Joe Biden ended up making a gaffe during the most important speech of his life on Saturday night as he misspoke over the numbers of people who have died from the coronavirus in the United States.

The 77-year-old took to the stage for his first speech as president-elect, and was full swing as he gave his  election victory speech to hundreds of supporters in Wilmington, Delaware.

But he slipped up over his words when quoting crucial figures about the COVID-19 death toll.

After reciting a hymn, he said: ‘I hope it can provide some comfort and solace to the more than 230-million-thousand families who have lost a loved one to this terrible virus this year.’

The current coronavirus death toll in the US is more than 230,000.
