CHINA/CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Last night, I spoke to President Xi. We talked about the experience that they had in China and all of the things that have taken place. And we learned a lot. They’ve had a very tough experience, and they’re doing well and he’s doing well. President Xi is doing very well. But we learned a lot and we have great communication together. We’re going to be sent great data from China.”

CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/JOE BIDEN/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “[The Obama] administration spent a lot of time working with the incoming Trump administration, laying out exactly what could happen with a future pandemic, and that they were likely, not unlikely to occur…

We set up an office within the White House directly to stay focused on this, in the president — in the White House and — to deal with pandemics.

And the first thing this president did, maybe not the first but very first, he eliminated the office, took it out of the White House…

I just don’t think he has taken this [coronavirus outbreak] seriously from the outset.”

Even though this is different, something is going on, and you ought to look into it as reporters. Where are the masks going? Are they going out the back door? How do you go from 10,000 to 300,000? And we have that in a lot of different places. So, somebody should probably look into that, because I just don’t see, from a practical standpoint, how that’s possible to go from that to that.”

And so, if we can hold that down, as we’re saying, to 100,000 [deaths] — that’s a horrible number — maybe even less, but to 100,000; so we have between 100- and 200,000 — we all, together, have done a very good job.”

CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “We’re at war with a deadly virus… this is going to be a very painful, very, very painful two weeks…

The question is what would have happened if we did nothing? Because there was a group that said let’s just ride it out… 2.2 million people would’ve died if we did nothing. We just carried on our life. Now I don’t think that would’ve been possible because you would have had people dying all over the place. This would not have been a normal life. How many people have even seen anybody die? You would have seen people dying on airplanes. You would’ve been seeing people dying in hotel lobbies. You would have seen death all over…

I think the one thing nobody really knew about this virus was how contagious it was. It’s so incredibly contagious. And nobody knew that.”

ANTHONY FAUCI/CORONAVIRUS: “The idea of getting a much more broad community-wide use of masks outside of the healthcare setting is under very active discussion at the task force. The CDC group is looking at that very carefully. The thing that has inhibited that a bit is to make sure that we don’t take away the supply of masks from the healthcare workers who need them [to treat coronavirus].

But once we get in a situation where we have enough masks, I believe there will be some very serious consideration about more broadening this recommendation of using masks. We’re not there yet, but I think we’re close to coming to some determination.

Because if, in fact, a person who may or may not be infected wants to prevent infecting someone else, one of the best ways to do that is with a mask. So perhaps that’s the way to go.”

Nobody has ever seen anything like this, where large groups of people, all of a sudden, just by being in the presence of somebody, have it. The flu has never been like that. And there is — flu is contagious but nothing like we’ve ever seen here.

Also, the violence of it. If it hits the right person — and you know what those stats are — if it hits the right person, that person is in deep trouble.”

ANTHONY FAUCI/CORONAVIRUS: “[T]he information is that more and more accumulation of data indicate that people who are without symptoms at all can transmit the virus.

But, importantly, they can do it merely by speaking. So, there’s been a recent study that came out that said even the force from your voice of speaking, there is a degree of aerosolization…

I think what people don’t fully appreciate is that putting a mask on yourself is more to prevent you from infecting someone else. And if everybody does that, we’re each protecting each other, because the data is, it’s more efficient to prevent transmitting to others than it is to prevent transmission to yourself.

But you can completely cover that ballpark if, essentially, universally, when people go out and are in a situation where they might come into closer contact, that they wear that mask.”

2020 ELECTION/CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/JOE BIDEN/VOTE BY MAIL/VOTING: “[W]e’ve never allowed any crisis from a Civil War straight through to a pandemic in ‘17, all the way around, in ’16, we have never, never let our democracy take second fiddle, we can both have a democracy and elections and at the same time protect the public health.

But I think it’s time we start thinking about how we’re going to hold elections, whether we’re going to have to spend a lot of time figuring whether we do — is it going to mostly be by mail, which is not the preferred route for everyone — how are we going to do that? How are we going to make it available to everybody?”

CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “I really believe that the American people are doing a better job than anybody would have thought even possible, and that’s one of the reasons we can even be talking about the kind of number that we hopefully will be talking about, which is at the minimum level instead of the maximum or beyond. It’s not even the maximum — it’s much beyond a maximum level, which would be horrific…

But we see light at the end of the tunnel. Things are happening. Things are happening. We’re starting to see light at the end of the tunnel. And hopefully, in the not-too-distant future, we’ll be very proud of the job we all did. We can never be happy when so many people are dying, but we’re going to be very proud of the job we did to keep the death down to an absolute minimum — the least it could have happened with this terrible, terrible virus.”

I just think it’s something — you know the expression, I’ve used it for certain reasons: ‘What do you have to lose?’ What do you have to lose? And a lot of people are saying that when — and are taking it — if you’re a doctor, a nurse, a first responder, a medical person going into hospitals, they say taking it before the fact is good. But what do you have to lose? They say, ‘Take it.’…

And, again, you have to go through your medical people, get the approval. But I’ve seen things that I sort of like. So what do I know? I’m not a doctor.”

TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/VOTE BY MAIL/VOTING: [Reporter: “But you voted by mail in Florida’s election last month, didn’t you? So how do you reconcile that?”] “Because I’m allowed to. Well, that’s called ‘out of state.’ You know, why I voted? Because I happen to be in the White House and I won’t be able to go to Florida to vote.

Well, there’s a big difference between somebody that’s out of state and does a ballot and everything is sealed, certified, and everything else. You see what you have to do with the certifications. And you get thousands and thousands of people sitting in somebody’s living room, signing ballots all over the place.

No, I think that mail-in voting is a terrible thing. I think if you vote, you should go. And even the concept of early voting is not the greatest because a lot of things happen, but it’s okay. But you should go and you should vote. I think you should go and you should vote.”

2020 ELECTION/POLLS/VOTE BY MAIL/VOTING: “Most Americans, including a majority of Republicans, want the government to require mail-in ballots for the Nov. 3 presidential election if the coronavirus outbreak still threatens the public this autumn, a Reuters/Ipsos poll found.

President Donald Trump, who is seeking re-election this year, has been trying with other Republicans to discourage efforts to expand voting by mail, saying it would increase the chance of voter fraud.

But the poll conducted on Monday and Tuesday found that 72% of all U.S. adults, including 79% of Democrats and 65% of Republicans, supported a requirement for mail-in ballots as a way to protect voters in case of a continued spread of the respiratory disease later this year.”

And I’m not going to say which party does it, but thousands of votes are gathered and they come in and they’re dumped in a location, and then, all of a sudden, you lose elections if you think you’re going to win.

I won’t to stand for it. Well, we’re going to find out about the proof, because you’re going to see what’s going on. And I’m not going to stand for it. Our voting system — first of all, we should have voter ID. When you vote, you should have voter ID.

It’s wrecking the economy and we’re starting to see it magnify some of our worst systemic inequities. Early data shows countries and counties in this country have major black populations and Hispanic populations, the coronavirus infection rates in the black communities are three times as high as they are in white majority residents’ communities. Death rates, nearly six times higher. That’s unconscionable and never should happen.”

The first thing we have to do is make sure people are financially taken care of because their circumstances they’re in, whether they’re small businesses, they’re employees, whatever it is, is through no fault of their own. That’s a Government responsibility to keep them whole, as whole as we can do it and that’s got to come right out of the treasury and get paid for.”
