(and Biden)

A free searchable database containing over 35,000 curated and sourced quotes by and about Donald J. Trump, in timeline form with context, 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.


CHINA/CORONAVIRUS: “Now, a lot of countries don’t report their [coronavirus] deaths. Obviously, China is not reporting because they had far more than we did. China had far more deaths than we did, in my opinion. It’s just my opinion. But they don’t report their deaths or they don’t report them accurately. And I could — I don’t want to embarrass other countries, but I can tell you, there are other countries where the death toll is far higher than the United States, but they don’t report to us. We report it to a level that nobody reports it…

But if we had much less testing, no testing, we would have — you wouldn’t be reporting cases…

But you take a look at things happening with respect to the reporting of deaths in other countries, and I say, ‘Give me a break.'”
