CORONAVIRUS/ECONOMY: “We got hit with the China virus it — it slowed things down, to put it mildly. We had the greatest economy in history, the greatest in the history of our country, and then we got hit with the China virus and we went to a different stance.
We went to a very protective stance, we’re now opening up our country and we’re setting records and doing it, especially with, if you look at the retail sales, it was a record. Employment was a record, a record for the quarter. Numbers like we haven’t seen before. We’re opening up very fast, it’s a V-shape.”
