(and Biden)

A searchable database containing over 30,000 curated and sourced quotes by and about Donald J. Trump, created in May 2017. We began adding quotes from Joe Biden soon after he became the presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee on June 5, 2020. Therefore, searches on most topics will return more Trump than Biden quotes, but we are continuing to add quotes from both 2020 presidential election candidates through the November 3, 2020 election.


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.”
