It’s Under Control!

  • March 2: “You take a solid flu vaccine, you don’t think that could have an impact, or much of an impact, on corona?”
  • March 2: “A lot of things are happening, a lot of very exciting things are happening and they’re happening very rapidly.”
  • March 3: “It’s got the world aflutter, but it’ll work out,”
  • March 4: “If we have thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that get better just by, you know, sitting around and even going to work — some of them go to work, but they get better.”
  • March 5: “I NEVER said people that are feeling sick should go to work.”
  • March 5: “The United States… has, as of now, only 129 cases… and 11 deaths. We are working very hard to keep these numbers as low as possible!”
  • March 6: “I think we’re doing a really good job in this country at keeping it down… a tremendous job at keeping it down.”
  • March 6: “Anybody right now, and yesterday, anybody that needs a test gets a test. They’re there. And the tests are beautiful…. the tests are all perfect like the letter was perfect. The transcription was perfect. Right? This was not as perfect as that but pretty good.”
  • March 6: “I like this stuff. 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.”
  • March 6: “I don’t need to have the numbers double because of one ship that wasn’t our fault.”
  • March 8: “We have a perfectly coordinated and fine tuned plan at the White House for our attack on CoronaVirus.”
  • March 9: “So last year 37,000 Americans died from the common Flu. It averages between 27,000 and 70,000 per year.  Nothing is shut down, life & the economy go on. At this moment there are 546 confirmed cases of CoronaVirus, with 22 deaths. Think about that!”
  • March 9: “This blindsided the world.”
  • March 10: “And it hit the world. And we’re prepared, and we’re doing a great job with it. And it will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away.”
  • March 11: “We’re having to fix a problem that four weeks ago, nobody thought would be a problem.”
  • March 12: “It’s going to go away. … The United States, because of what I did and what the administration did with China, we have 32 deaths at this point … when you look at the kind of numbers that you’re seeing coming out of other countries, it’s pretty amazing when you think of it.”
  • March 13: “I don’t take any responsibility for it at all.”
  • March 13: “For decades the CDC looked at, and studied, its testing system, but did nothing about it. It would always be inadequate and slow for a large scale pandemic, but a pandemic would never happen, they hoped. President Obama made changes that only complicated things further.”
  • March 13: “Their response to H1N1 Swine Flu was a full scale disaster, with thousands dying, and nothing meaningful done to fix the testing problem, until now. The changes have been made and testing will soon happen on a very large scale basis. All Red Tape has been cut, ready to go!”
  • March 13: “To unleash the full power of the federal government in this effort today, I am officially declaring a National Emergency.”
  • March 15: “The individual Governors of States, and local officials, must step up their efforts on drive up testing and testing sights, working in conjunction with @CDCgov and the Federal Government!”
  • March 16: To State Governors – “Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment – try getting it yourselves. We will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves. Points of sales, much better, much more direct if you can get it yourself.”
  • March 18: “I always treated the Chinese Virus very seriously, and have done a very good job from the beginning, including my very early decision to close the “borders” from China – against the wishes of almost all. Many lives were saved. The Fake News new narrative is disgraceful & false!”
  • March 20: “What do you say to Americans who are scared, millions who are scared right now?” (Peter Alexander, NBC News).
    “I say that you’re a terrible reporter, That’s what I say. I think that’s a very nasty question.”
  • March 23: “America will, again, and soon, be open for business. Very soon. At the end of the 15-day period, we’ll make a decision.”
  • March 23: “If it was up to the doctors, they would keep it shut down, they would say “let’s shut down the entire world.” You can’t do that.”
  • March 24: “Our people want to return to work. They will practice Social Distancing and all else, and Seniors will be watched over protectively & lovingly. We can do two things together. THE CURE CANNOT BE WORSE (by far) THAN THE PROBLEM! Congress MUST ACT NOW. We will come back strong!”
  • March 26: “A lot of good things are happening. The mortality rate is, in my opinion … way, way down. That takes a lot of fear out. It’s one thing to have it. It’s another thing to die. When I first got involved, I was told numbers much higher than the number that seems to be.”
  • March 27: “My Administration is actively planning the next phase in an all-out war against this horrible virus.”
  • March 27: “Reporter asks: What do you want the Democratic governors you’re attacking to do, exactly?” “I want them to be appreciative.”
  • March 27: “When they’re not appreciative to me … it’s not right.”
  • March 27: “I have a feeling that a lot of the numbers that are being said in some areas are just bigger than they’re going to be. I don’t believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators. You go into major hospitals sometimes, and they’ll have two ventilators. And now, all of a sudden, they’re saying, ‘Can we order 30,000 ventilators?'”
  • March 29: “Because the ‘Ratings’ of my News Conferences etc. are so high, ‘Bachelor finale, Monday Night Football type numbers’ according to the @nytimes, the Lamestream Media is going CRAZY. ‘Trump is reaching too many people, we must stop him.’ said one lunatic. See you at 5:00 P.M.!”
  • March 29: “The Lamestream Media wants us to fail. That will NEVER happen!”
  • March 29: “Polls are showing tremendous disapproval of Lamestream Media coverage of the Virus crisis. The Fake News just hasn’t figured that out yet!”
  • March 29: “How do you go from 10,000 to 20,000 masks — to 300,000…Something’s going on. And you ought to look into it as reporters. Where are the masks going? Are they going out the back door? … And we have that happening in numerous places.”
  • March 31: “I watched a portion of low rated (very) Morning Psycho (Joe) this Morning in order to see what Nancy Pelosi had to say, & what moves she was planning to further hurt our Country. Actually, other than her usual complaining that I’m a terrible person, she wasn’t bad. Still praying!”
