“It's just like the flu.”

“Kung flu.”

“China virus.”

“We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.”

“It will disappear, just a like a miracle.”
“It's only 15 cases and soon it will go down to zero.”

“I like this stuff [medicine]. I really get it. People are surprised that I understand it… Every one of these doctors said, ‘How do you know so much about this?’ Maybe I have a natural ability. Maybe I should have done that instead of running for president.” 

“Looks like by April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away.”

“I’d love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter.”

“The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA. … Stock Market starting to look very good to me!”

“Somehow sitting in the Oval Office behind that beautiful Resolute Desk, the great Resolute Desk, I think wearing a face mask as I greet presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens, I don’t know, somehow I don’t see it for myself. I just don’t. Maybe I’ll change my mind.”

“What do you have to lose? I’ll say it again: What do you have to lose? Take it [hydroxychloroquine]. I really think they should take it.” 

“And then I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection or almost a cleaning?”

“100,000 deaths is a very good number.”

“It is what it is.”

“When we have a lot of cases, I don’t look at that as a bad thing, I look at that as, in a certain respect, as being a good thing… Because it means our testing is much better. I view it as a badge of honor, really, it’s a badge of honor.”

“So I said to my people, ‘Slow the testing down.’”

“Our response was a perfect 10.”

“I don't want to create a panic.”

 “All the fake news media wants to talk about is COVID, COVID, COVID. On November 4th, you won’t be hearing so much about it anymore.”

“The deep state, or whoever, over at the FDA is making it very difficult for drug companies to get people in order to test the vaccines and therapeutics. Obviously, they are hoping to delay the answer until after November 3rd.” 

“We are rounding the corner.”

“There's nothing more we could have done.”

“I don't take responsibility at all.”
