Trump: The Pandemic Proves I Was Right About China

The New York Post reports:

President Trump invited The Post into the Oval Office on Monday for an hour-long interview during which he declared “there’s a great optimism” in America and predicted a strong economic rebound from the coronavirus crisis during the fourth quarter of 2020.

Trump said that if there was a silver lining in all the misery it is that Americans are now eager to return supply chains to the US, including the production of medicine from China.

“Now, the one thing that the pandemic has taught us is that I was right,” Trump said. “You know, I had people say, ‘No, no, it’s good. You keep — you do this and that.’ Now those people are really agreeing with me. And that includes medicine and other things, you know.”

Trump also claimed to the Post that reports of White House projections of 3000 daily deaths by June are “fake news.”

The New York Times obtained the projections from an internal slide show created by FEMA which bears the CDC logo.
