Joe Biden told an audience in Ottumwa, Iowa Tuesday that his White House would “cure” cancer should he beat President Trump in 2020.
“I’ve worked so hard in my career, that I promise you, if I’m elected president you’re gonna see single most important thing that changes America, we’re gonna cure cancer,” Biden said to applause.
During his stint as vice president, Biden oversaw the “Cancer Moonshot” initiative of the Obama administration. During his final State of the Union address, Obama announced the program that resulted in a report outlining recommendations for funding and areas to focus research.
After his term, Biden oversaw the Biden Cancer Initiative dedicated to cancer prevention and research until he stepped down from the organization immediately after he announced his run for president.
