(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: [Paul Tubiana, audience member: “I thought you were doing a good job with the pandemic response until about May 1st. Then you took your foot off the gas pedal. Why did you throw vulnerable people like me under the bus?”]

“Well, we really didn’t, Paul. We’ve worked very hard on the pandemic. We’ve worked very hard. It came off from China. They should have never let it happen…

But we really — we’re starting to get very good marks. If you look at what we’ve done compared to other countries, with the excess mortality, the excess mortality rate, we’ve done very, very well…

So I feel that we’ve done a tremendous job actually, and it’s something that, I don’t think it’s been recognized like it should… But we’re very proud of the job we’ve done, and we’ve saved a lot of lives, a tremendous number of lives.”
