CHINA/CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The depth and breadth of the U.S. Military’s contributions to our society are an everlasting inspiration to us all. I want to take this opportunity to thank all members of America’s Armed Forces in every branch — active duty, National Guard, and reserve — who stepped forward to help battle the invisible enemy — the new virus that came to our shores from a distant land called China. We will vanquish the virus. We will extinguish this plague.”

-Donald Trump, “Remarks by President Trump at the 2020 United States Military Academy at West Point Graduation Ceremony,” whitehouse.gov, June 13, 2020
