CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/TRAVEL BAN: “A policy of never-ending lockdowns month after month would ultimately do more harm than good to public health, and so bad for our children. As a result, it really is more loss of life. We can’t do that. We have to get back now. We did it right. We saved millions of lives by what we did. We shut it down. We saved millions of lives.
I put a ban on China — heavily infected. I put a ban on Europe very early. Both of them, very early. We saved millions of lives. Now it’s time to get back to work.”
