U.S. President Donald Trump spoke with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Monday about the government's handling of the coronavirus crisis, according to two people familiar with the phone call. Biden, the front-runner for his party's nomination to face Trump in the Nov. 3 election, volunteered to speak with Trump after offering criticism of the president's handling of the coronavirus crisis.

Trump accepted that offer last week and earlier on Monday posted on Twitter, "what ever happened to that phone call he told the Fake News he wanted to make to me?" Biden replied, "Happy to discuss anytime."

The full contents of the call were not immediately available.
