CHINA/CORONAVIRUS/DEBATES: “I don’t think it’s going to be a dark winter at all. We’re opening up our country. We’ve learned and studied and understand the [coronavirus] disease, which we didn’t know at the beginning.

When I closed and banned China from coming in heavily infected, and then ultimately Europe, but China was in January — months later he [Joe Biden] was saying I was xenophobic, I did it too soon. Now he’s saying, ‘Oh, I should have, I should have, you know, moved quicker.’ But he didn’t move quicker; he was months behind me, many months behind me. And frankly, he ran the H1N1 swine flu, and it was a total disaster.”
