WASHINGTON (AP) Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is grappling with how to respond to the coronavirus crisis as President Donald Trump and governors in the thick of the response take up much of the public and media attention.

The former vice president is vowing to do more media appearances and online events now that he's set up a studio at his home.

But some Republicans have accused Democrats of politicizing the crisis.

Biden faces a challenge in striking the right tone in his criticism of Mr. Trump.

He also faces a challenge in working out the kinks on his online presence.
