CAMPAIGN/CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/RALLY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “But I said the other night, ‘There’s never been anything where they have so many names.’ I could give you 19 or 20 names for that, right? It’s got all different names. ‘Wuhan.’ ‘Wuhan’ was catching on. ‘Coronavirus,’ right?

[Audience member: ‘Kung flu!’]

‘Kung flu,’ yeah. Kung flu. ‘COVID.’ ‘COVID-19.’ ‘COVID.’ I said, ‘What’s the ‘19’?’ ‘COVID-19.’ Some people can’t explain what the 19 — give me the — ‘COVID-19.’ I said, ‘That’s an odd name.’ I could give you many, many names.

Some people call it the ‘Chinese flu,’ the ‘China flu.’ Right?… I’ve never seen anything like it.

But here’s the story: We are going to be stronger than ever before, and it’s going to be soon.”
