CLAIM: President Donald Trump called seniors “virtually nobody,” and called troops “losers” and “suckers.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden told an audience of seniors in Florida on Tuesday that President Trump considered seniors to be “virtually nobody.” He specifically cited a speech by Trump last month, saying that Trump said the coronavirus “affects virtually nobody,” and hurt “just elderly people with heart and other problems.”
He went on to say that Trump was talking specifically about seniors.
