Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden’s campaign said Wednesday it will be in touch with the White House to set up a call for the former vice president to offer his ideas on combating coronavirus to President Donald Trump after a top White House official complained the administration hadn’t heard any suggestions from Biden.

A day of back and forth between the president and his likely general election opponent culminated in Trump saying during a press briefing that he would “absolutely” take Biden’s call.
