CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19: “But we lose thousands of people a year to the flu. We never turn the country off. We lose much more than that to automobile accidents. We didn’t call up the automobile companies and say, stop making cars. We don’t want any cars anymore.

We have to get back to work. Now, with all of that being said, it’s incredible, what the American people have done, and — and honestly, the American people have learned — we’ve all learned together, between the shaking of the hands and the washing of the hands.”
