CORONAVIRUS: “Excess mortality, we’re a winner on the excess mortality. And what we’ve done has been amazing. And we have done an amazing job. And it’s [coronavirus] rounding the corner and we have the vaccines coming, and we have the therapies coming.

And I’ll tell you what, one thing. When I got it, I had a choice. Do nothing, or use some of the things that we’re looking at, like in this case, Regeneron. and Eli Lilly makes something that’s supposed to be incredible. And I think that maybe I wouldn’t be doing this discussion with you right now. We have therapies now and cures, maybe you can use the word cure, but we have therapies that are absolutely incredible.”

CORONAVIRUS/JOE BIDEN: “[T]he words of a president matter… No matter whether they’re good, bad or indifferent, they matter.

And when a president doesn’t wear a mask, or makes fun of folks, like me, when I was wearing a mask for a long time, then people say, well, it mustn’t be that important…

And we’re now learning that children are getting the virus, not with as serious consequences, but we haven’t — there’s been no studies done yet on vaccines for children.

So, there’s a long way to go, but we can make progress in the meantime and save lives.”

CAMPAIGN/CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/JOE BIDEN: During our contact tracing, we discovered around noon today that a member of the company that charters my airplane has also tested positive for COVID. This crew member was on the plane with me, but was more than 50 feet away.

My COVID test from last night came back negative.

Not only was the individual 50+ feet away and wearing a mask, but I was wearing an N-95 mask. No members of my staff were in contact with this crew member either. My doctors have advised that there is no need for me to quarantine.

Our campaign’s contact tracing remains ongoing, and my team will continue to share any significant developments with the American people. If anything, let this serve as an example of the importance of wearing masks and keeping a safe, social distance.

CORONAVIRUS/SENIORS: “I will not rest and I will not relent until all American seniors are safe. That is my sacred obligation. I love our seniors. I love our country. At the same time, we must allow lower risk Americans to resume normal activity. The unscientific [coronavirus] lockdowns pushed by left wing politicians are needlessly destroying millions of lives. They decimate livelihoods and lead to suicide, drug, overdose, depression, heart disease, delayed medical treatments, and reduced life expectancy. The cure can not be worse than the problem itself.”

CORONAVIRUS: “Americans should be trusted with the facts, the data, and the truth. For the young and healthy, the risk [from coronavirus] is exceedingly low. 99.98% of those under the age of 50 survive. The average age of those who succumb to the virus is 78. And usually that is a person who’s 78, but has bad heart, diabetes, has other problems. That’s why we’re so focused on protecting elderly, and higher risk Americans.”

2020 ELECTION/DEBATES: “President Donald Trump will participate in a town hall with NBC News on Thursday night, setting up a competing television event with Joe Biden in lieu of a presidential debate in which voters would have seen both presidential candidates engage with each other and discuss issues head-to-head.

Biden is set to appear in an ABC town hall, and both events are scheduled for 8 p.m. ET. The two were originally scheduled to participate in a second debate, but the event was eventually canceled after Trump objected to the virtual format announced by the Commission on Presidential Debates in light of Trump’s positive coronavirus diagnosis.”

2020 ELECTION/CAMPAIGN: “President Donald Trump, recently hospitalized with the coronavirus, has been pushing his reelection campaign to schedule more in-person rallies and other events in the final weeks before the Nov. 3 election.

The president Monday morning was ‘getting on my case for not having enough rallies and public events scheduled,’ senior advisor Jason Miller told reporters in an on-the-record campaign call. ‘So he’s ready to go.’

Miller also said that in the ‘home stretch’ of the campaign against Democratic nominee Joe Biden, Trump is expected to be out on the campaign trail ‘at least in the short term, two to three events a day.'”

ANTHONY FAUCI/CORONAVIRUS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “He’s [Donald Trump] now running an ad, you probably saw, a national ad quoting Dr. Fauci out of context. Way back in March, referring to public health officials, Dr. Fauci said, ‘I can’t imagine that anybody could be doing more [on coronavirus],’ end of quote.

In the recent ad that’s going out nationally, Trump quotes Dr. Fauci is saying that about him, the president. Trump and his campaign deliberately lied, making it sound like Fauci was talking about Trump. Fauci went on to the public air when the ad came out saying, three days ago, ‘I did not give permission for that quote.’ He wasn’t referring to the president…

The point I’m trying to make is it was a knowing lie… As a consequence, through his months of overwhelming lying, misleading and irresponsible action on the part of Donald Trump, how many empty chairs were around your breakfast table this morning? Someone you love, somebody you cared about, someone you knew, a family member or a neighbor, missing, missing. Why? Because of negligence.”

CORONAVIRUS/HISPANICS: “And here we are, we’ve gone through so much since I was here last, because of the incompetence of this administration, 210,000 people dead [from coronavirus]… that’s 40,000 Latinos nationwide, 40,000.

30 million people lost their jobs. Three million Latinos lost their jobs. One in three Latino businesses have closed, and the deep racial injustices that Trump continues to fan the flames of. It’s just wrong. We have to end this cycle where in good times, you’re being left behind. In bad times, you’re the first in trouble, and as we come out, always the last to come out.”

What’s the first thing the President did? He fired the Inspector General. Think about that. 40% of all the money that was supposed to go to small businesses in the first time around went to the Mar-a-Lago crowd. The wealthy.

Landing at the White House on Marine One, Trump gingerly climbed the South Portico steps, removed his mask and declared, ‘I feel good.'”

CORONAVIRUS/TRUMP’S HEALTH: “I just left Walter Reed Medical Center, and it’s really something very special. The doctors, the nurses, the first responders, and I learned so much about coronavirus.

And one thing that’s for certain, don’t let it dominate you. Don’t be afraid of it. You’re going to beat it. We have the best medical equipment. We have the best medicines all developed recently, and you’re going to beat it.

I went, I didn’t feel so good. And two days ago, I could have left two days ago. Two days ago, I felt great. Like, better than I have in a long time. I said just recently, better than 20 years ago. Don’t let it dominate. Don’t let it take over your lives. Don’t let that happen.”

CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/TRUMP’s HEALTH: [Lester Holt: “[W]hen you hear that this president was infected with COVID-19, were you surprised?”]

“Quite frankly, I wasn’t surprised… [T]he idea COVID does not spread in proximity. when you don’t have a mask on, when you’re not socially distancing, when there’s a large groups of people, when you’re inside particularly — but even when you’re outside — that’s not surprising. And again, we keep forgetting… the expectation is, if nothing changes, we’re going to have another 200,000 dead [from coronavirus] by the end of the year.

That’s 400,000 dead, God forbid if that happens, that’s more than were killed in… four years of World War 2.”

CORONAVIRUS/JOE BIDEN/TRUMP’S HEALTH: “I would hope that, the president having gone through what he went through, and I’m glad he seems to be coming along pretty well, would communicate the right lesson to the American people: Masks matter. These masks matter.

It matters, it saves lives, it prevents the spread of the disease. Social distancing. Instead of talking about that, the only thing I heard is one of the tweets saying that, you know, don’t be so concerned about all this, essentially. There’s a lot to be concerned about: 210,000 people have died…

I hope no one walks away with the message thinking that it is not a problem. It’s a serious problem, it’s an international pandemic, and we have 4% of the population and 20% of the deaths.”
