Trump: Very importantly I’d like to begin by saying that we’ve just reached agreement the secretary of Treasury Steve mnuchin with the major airlines all of our great airlines to participate in a payroll support program this agreement will fully support airline industry workers preserve the vital role airlines play in our economy and protect taxpayers are airlines are now in good shape and they will get over a very tough period of time that was not caused by them The United States is continuing to make substantial progress in our war against the virus we agree with every precious life that has been lossed to the invisible enemy but through the darkness we can see the Rays of light we see that tunnel and at the end of that tunnel we see light we’re starting to see it more than ever before we’ve held R rate the numbers everything we’ve done we’ve been very very strong on it and very powerful on it you look at what’s happening in other countries Spain Italy United Kingdom we’re working with them we’re trying to help them especially with ventilators they’ve been calling a lot they need ventilators so badly 15% of counties within the United States have 0 cases and many counties within the United States have a very small number of cases large sections of our country are really looking at other sections and saying wow that looks bad but they don’t have the problem I salute the American people for following are guidelines on social distancing even you people is so different looking out there when I look at you their devotion your devotion is saving lives today I’m instructing my administration to halt funding of the World Health Organization while a review is conducted to assess the world health organizations rolan severely mismanaging and covering up the spread of the Corona virus everybody knows what’s going on there American taxpayers provide between 400 million and five hundred $1,000,000 per year to The Who in contrast China contributes roughly $40,000,000 a year and even less as the organization’s leading sponsor the United States has a duty to insist on full accountability one of the most dangerous and costly decisions from the WHL was its disastrous decision to oppose travel restrictions from China and other nations they were very much opposed to what we did Fortunately I was not convinced and suspended travel from China saving untold numbers of lives thousands and thousands of people would have died had other nations likewise suspended travel from China countless more lives would have been saved instead look at the rest of the world look at parts of Europe other nations and regions who follow WHO guidelines and kept their borders open to China accelerated the pandemic all around the world many countries said we’re going to listen to the WHL and they have problems the likes of which they cannot believe nobody can believe the decision of other major countries to keep travel open was one of the great tragedies and missed opportunities from the early days the WHO’s attack on travel restrictions put political correctness above lifesaving measures travel bans work for the same reason that quarantines work pandemics depend on human to human transmission border control is fundamental to virus control since its establishment in 1948 The American people have generously supported the World Health Organization to provide better health outcomes for the world and most importantly to help prevent global health crises with the outbreak of the covin 19 pandemic we have deep concerns whether America’s generosity has been put to the best use possible the reality is that the WHL failed to adequately obtain vet and share information in a timely and transparent fashion the world depends on The Who to work with countries to ensure that accurate information about international health threats is shared in a timely manner and if it’s not too independently tell the world the truth about what is happening The Who failed in this basic duty and must be held accountable it’s time after all of these decades The Who failed to investigate credible reports from sources in Wuhan that conflicted directly with the Chinese government’s official accounts there was credible information to suspect human to human transmission in December 2019 which should have spurred The Who to investigate and investigate immediately through the middle of January it parroted and publicly endorsed the idea that there was not human to human transmission happening despite reports and clear evidence to the contrary the delays the WHL experience in declaring a public health emergency cost valuable time tremendous amounts of time more time was lost in the delay it took to get a team of international experts in to examine the outbreak which we wanted to do which they should have done the inability of The Who to obtain virus samples to this date has deprived the scientific community of essential data new data that emerges across the world on a daily basis points to the unreliability of the initial reports and the world received all sorts of false information about transmission and mortality the silence of The Who on the disappearance of scientific researchers and doctors and or new restrictions on the sharing of research into the origins of COVID-19 in the country of origin is deeply concerning especially when we put up by far the largest amount of money not even close had the WHL done its job to get medical experts into China to objectively assess the situation on the ground and to call out China’s lack of transparency the outbreak could have been contained at its source with very little death very little death and certainly very little death by comparison this would have saved thousands of lives and avoided worldwide economic damage instead the WHL willingly took China’s assurances to face value and they took it just at face value and defended the actions of the Chinese government even praising China for its so-called transparency I don’t think so the WHL pushed China’s misinformation about the virus saying it was not communicable and there was no need for travel bands they told us when we put on our travel ban a very strong travel band there was no need to do it don’t do it they actually for us the WHO’s reliance on China’s disclosures likely caused a 20 fold increase in cases worldwide and it may be much more than that the WHL is not addressed a single one of these concerns nor provided a serious explanation that acknowledges its own mistakes of which there were many america the world have chosen to rely on The Who for accurate timely and independent information to make important public health recommendations and decisions if we cannot trust that this is what we will receive from The Who our country will be forced to find other ways to work with other nations to achieve public health goals will have no choice but to do that our countries are now experiencing you look all over the world tremendous death and economic devastation because those tasked with protecting us by being truthful and transparent failed to do so it would have been so easy to be truthful and so much death has been caused by their mistakes we will continue to engage with The Who to see if it can make meaningful reforms for the time being we will redirect global health and directly work with others all of the aid that we send will be discussed add very very powerful little letters and and with very powerful and influential groups and smart groups medically politically in every other way and will be discussing it with other countries and global health partners what we do with all of that money that goes to WHO and maybe WHL will reform and maybe they won’t but we’ll be able to see as you know in other countries hit hard by the virus hospitals have been tragically forced to ration medical care and the use of ventilators but due to our early an aggressive action the skill of our health care workers and the resilience of our health care system no hospital in America has been forced to deny any patient access to a ventilator with all of the talk you’ve heard where some states wanted 40,000 ventilators i said that doesn’t work 40,000 and they ended up with 7 or 8000 and they had no problem 40,000 ventilators for one state ridiculous the scariest day of my life was about a month ago when after a long day of meetings my team told me that we were going to be needing 130,000 ventilators that we were short hundreds of thousands of ventilators this is the system we inherited i had governors requesting unreasonable sums that the federal government just didn’t have and you look at the states the states didn’t have the states were not prepared I knew that every person who needed a ventilator and didn’t get one would die and that’s what we were told they would die I saw in other countries doctors having to make decisions on who got a ventilator and who didn’t And I know that this would be a defining challenge of the crisis those that didn’t get ventilators were said to be in a position only of one alternative and that was death would we be able to prevent Americans from dying because we couldn’t get them ventilators and the ventilators that they needed and they needed immediately I instructed my team to move heaven and earth to make sure that this didn’t happen we started to smartly ration and distribute the ventilators that we had and that others had And I got daily updates on the supply we had from requests coming in and people wanting to have updates we had a great group of people working on it I instructed my team to use the defense protection act and the defense production act was used very powerfully more powerfully than anybody would know in fact so powerfully that for the most part we didn’t have to officially take it out it was a hammer it was a very powerful hammer in order to manufacture as many ventilators as possible last year America manufactured from a dead start 30,000 ventilators and this year the number will be over 150,000 ventilators that could be as high as 200,000 more than we’ll ever need so we’ll be able to stockpile will be able to talk to states about stockpiling these are high quality ventilators we had a choice we could do inexpensive less productive ventilators or high quality we’ve done a high quality ventilator so we should have anywhere from 150 to 200,000 ventilators In addition to that we have 10,000 ventilators right now in the federal stockpile ready to move should we need them we might not should we need them in New York or New Jersey or in Louisiana or in Illinois or any other state that may need them if we have a search I’d like to ask Adam bowler to come up and just say a few words he’s done a fantastic job young man who worked 24 hours a day on handling this situation and I just like to have have Adam wherever he may be come up and say a few words Adam please thank you very much thank you.

Adam: Mr. President at your direction this country has worked hard over the past few weeks to ramp up ventilator production through all means possible thousands of ventilators are coming in now monthly with over 100,000 by the end of June at the same time there are over 60,000 ventilators in our hospitals right now that are not in use knowing this and at your direction we reached out to the American Hospital Association to design a system that allows hospitals to lend ventilators to other hospitals right when they need it within the past week alone 20 top health systems have signed up for this dynamic ventilator reserve representing over 4000 ventilators not only do we have top academic systems like Cleveland Clinic and Mayo Clinic but we also have top health systems from New York City New Orleans washington state and California over a week ago these places would have needed help but now they are here to help there’s been no American that is needed a ventilator that is not received one this dynamic virtual reserve combined with our strategic stockpile will ensure that this is always the case I’d like to thank the president for his leadership and directive to focus on public private partnerships like this one I’d also like to thank Sam hazen from HCA Lloyd Dean from common spirit for leading this effort with the ECE and the Federation of American hospitals these have been difficult times a few weeks ago the vice president came into my office and he reminded us of the power of the resilience of the American people and a private companies we needed it that day Mr vice president this partnership is another example of Americans helping Americans thank you thank you Sir

Trump: i shake his hand but i’m not allowed. Have to times have changed 7th day thank you very much you did a fantastic job with very proud of you you and your whole team thank you today we are taking further action to maximize our oversupply and available ventilators this afternoon I met with the leaders the top people of many of America’s big powerful beautiful and you know very very important hospitals and hospital associations who join us today at a great meeting learned a lot and they’ve been going through a lot they’ve been doing a fantastic job is everybody here will attest I’m pleased to announce that my administration is partnering with the hospitals across the country to create an innovative do system called the dynamic ventilator reserve so that we’re going to have tremendous numbers of ventilators that we’re able to help our states with at a later date if there’s ever a problem like this which we hope to God will never happen again 19 seventeen 1918 that’s a long time ago we hope it never happens again and I’d like to ask Rick Pollack of CEO of American Hospital Association Sam hazen CEO of HCA healthcare it’s the largest in the United States Warner Thomas CEO of ochsner health and if I could my haul you are you here from Cleveland Clinic somebody good thank you come on up folks please thank you see if you work

thank you very much Thank you very much Mr President we appreciate the opportunity to work with you and your team on the dynamic ventilator reserve program this will provide a really important mechanism for us in serving our patients and communities by ensuring that this vital equipment will be available to critical areas that are in need you know as this battle against this disease has affected the country a little bit unevenly the rates of infection hospitalization in ICU use varies from one region to another in some places with lower infection rates some ventilators may not be in use while other areas are potentially stretched beyond their capacity the database of available ventilators that we’re creating will allow us to flex so that we can make sure that available equipment can be shared with those in need we appreciate the leadership of the health systems that are here today that has stepped forward and Adam mentioned the few I don’t know if he caught doctor Fritz Francois from NYU langone and David dill the CEO of life point as well we appreciate the work of the administration and helping us find innovative solutions to ensure the best care for our patients will continue to work with hospitals and health systems across the country to add to this reserve further your team is provided us with important leadership and we look forward to working with you and making this a success thank you Mr President

Thank you Mr President Mr vice president Adam team I stand here before you you in front of our 285 thousand colleagues who provide care to patients every day across the country one of the guiding principles we had when we went into this COVID-19 battle was to find partnerships partnerships with other components of the industry partnerships with other health systems but partnerships with governments both local and federal and we’re proud to be a part of this private public sector partnership and I think it’s going to do great good for the community so thank you very much

Thank you Mr President it’s it’s great to have auction or healthy part of this program we certainly have been a a recipient and the state of louisiana’s been recipient of help getting ventilators to our state and to ochsner health we’re currently taking care of about 60% of the covert patients in New Orleans and we did see a spike over the past few weeks but we’re starting to get on the other side of that and heading in the right direction I also want to thank you personally for helping ochsner health a couple weeks ago we were running short on surgical gowns and you and your team were able to direct some two New Orleans which was helpful to us another hospitals around the New Orleans area so we’re excited to be part of this dynamic ventilator reserve an we are proud to be part of that and help other communities around the country thank you

Thank you Mr President for the invitation here on behalf of the Cleveland Clinic I would just like to offer a slightly different story about a kovid pandemic in our home state of Ohio with an early institution of social distancing our ability to scale up the testing and ramping out capacity we have actually seen a stable number of patients over the last 8 to 10 days only 160 patients have been hospitalized with kovid infection in Cleveland clinic health system we are also very grateful for the support from our state government as well from federal government this is a battle where we’re all in together we coordinate our efforts share our resources and work together as one I’m firmly convinced that we can do a lot of good when we work together thank you very much for having us thank you Sir

Trump: How is a terrific meeting and thank you all for being here thank you very much The United States has far more ICU beds per capita than any other nation we have 34.7 ICU beds per 100,000 people which is the best there is compared with roughly 12.5 beds per 100,000 in Italy 11.6 beds in France 9.7 beds in Spain think of that 34.7 we have and six point six in the UK there are more than 60,000 ventilators at hospitals and other health care facilities that are not in use at this moment they didn’t need him we got a lot of ‚em out and they didn’t need him and that’s a good thing that they didn’t need him but a lot of good brainpower was involved in making a lot of fantastic decisions I want to thank our vice president for the task force And I want to thank all members of your task force on having done an incredible job you really have done an incredible job thank you Mike very much through this new partnership with the hospitals unused ventilators will voluntarily lend them where they have unused rent letters they will voluntary lindows ventless to other hospitals and other areas of greater need within the last several days more than 20 of our nation’s largest health systems have already pledged more than 4000 ventilators should we need them and I’ve been told that if they need more there are more there were going to be helping very soon when the supplies really starts pouring in which is which started but will really start about less than a month we’re going to be helping other countries and they need it very badly they have no chance without these ventilators they have to have ventilators as we continue our medical war against the virus the FDA as now authorized the first Test developed by researchers from Rutgers University that can use saliva from patients the first one these tests can be self administered by patients and health care settings which will reduce exposure for medical workers and save personal protective equipment Rutgers will begin processing 10,000 test daily so by using saliva that’s the first they’ll be able to do things in terms of speed and ease that we haven’t been able to do before so a lot of great innovation is taking place during this period of time and that’s innovation I called innovation under pressure it’s a big difference innovation under pressure right Cleveland Clinic knows all about that as we prepare for the next phase of this great struggle we must also do everything in our power to restore prosperity for the American worker there’s tremendous interest and excitement surrounding the administration’s efforts to get the economy roaring once again and I think it’s going to roar once it gets open I think it’s going to go up tremendously you see what’s happening with the stock market already because a lot of the very smart financial people the great minds are looking at the stock and they’re saying well ‚cause they really what they’re really saying is how we’re doing if we weren’t doing well the market wouldn’t be at a level that it is today they have a lot of confidence that we’re doing the right thing and that our country is going to be open soon and our country is going to be booming we’ve had requests to participate from the best in the world as we share their enthusiasm to get our country going so i thank them for wanting to contribute and we look forward to speaking with many industry leaders seeking their input on how we can return to what was until very recently the greatest economy anywhere in the world and I can say the greatest economy in the history of the world has never been an economy like we had just a little bit more than a month ago we said every record you could set more people working than we’ve ever had working before almost 160 million the best unemployment numbers we’ve ever had and the best employment numbers we’ve ever had everybody was doing well stock market at a record 140 two days it hit a record an I think we’re going to top those records OK and I think we’re going to top them soon once we get rid of the invisible enemy which will happen the plans to reopen the country are close to being finalized and we will soon be sharing details and new guidelines with everybody I will be speaking to all 50 governors very shortly And I will then be authorizing each individual governor of each individual state to implement a reopening and a very powerful reopening plan of their state at a time and in a manner as most appropriate the day will be very close because certain states as you know aren’t much different condition and in a much different place than other states it’s going to be very very close maybe even before the date of May 1st so that will be for some states actually there are over 20 that are in extremely good shape and we think we’re going to be able to get them open fairly quickly and then others will follow the federal government will be watching them very closely and will be there to help will be there to help in many different ways as we’ve been where we built hospital beds at a number that nobody’s ever seen before where we did the ventilators that we just discussed at a level that nobody’s ever seen before nobody can even believe other foreign countries even powerful countries can’t believe what we were able to do with ventless big powerful countries big producing countries can’t believe what we were able to do we will hold the governors accountable but again we’re going to be working with them to make sure it works really well now we have a list of people that I’ll be speaking to over the next very short period of time in many cases tomorrow we’re going to have elected officials and will be submitting that list to you within the next 24 hours but we have a list of different industries that I’ll be discussing by meeting by telephone because we don’t want people traveling right now The American Farm Bureau Federation zippy Duvall Cisco Systems Tyson Foods Perdue

with lots too say and lots of good ideas and if you look at how paycheck has been working out the numbers are incredible and I hope Congress is going to be able to supplement the amount of money going to our workers I hope they’re able to get that done very quickly ‚cause it’s been an incredible success and many are already spending that money and the money’s been distributed at numbers that nobody believed possible for the short period of time was only a week ago but a lot of money has been distributed already it’s going to keep our small businesses open the construction labor workforce

produced because of the fact that the virus just out almost 50% of the business it’s been amazing achievement some people say one of the biggest oil deals ever made maybe the biggest oil deal ever made there saying I didn’t know that but we were involved in getting that done and it was very important we’re going to save hundreds of thousands of jobs for our energy industry Texas and North Dakota Oklahoma all of our different energy states it’s great so we’re very happy about it I want to thank everybody we had the it’s called OPEC plus that’s OPEC plus meaning some nations outside of

Heritage Foundation cake call James great person Hoover Institute conda Lisa rice another great person art laffer Steve Moore Steve Forbes Larry Lindsey Katherine Reynolds Scott Gottlieb just spoke with Scott Jim demint and Jim has been terrific friend bill Haggerty and Ray Washburn and religious leaders will be coming on Friday will be speaking too and we’re going to have a separate list but we have tremendous Susie asom to meet by our great religious leaders we have incredible people and they want to they want to be apart and will be talking about churches and will be talking about opening and we’ll be talking about things that are very important to a lot of people including me we’re going to find out how we’re doing in that regard so those are the names that we have on our list there the names that are I think the best and the smartest the brightest they’re going to give us some ideas but we’re all set as i said the governors are going to be opening up their states they’re going to declare when they’re going to know when some can open very very shortly if not almost immediately will give a date but the date is going to be in the very near future so we’ll get it open individual states when the governor’s will be held accountable if they need things will help them get those things but we want them to do their testing we want them because they’re equipped to do testing we’ve created incredible tests and we’ve done more testing that anybody’s ever done in the world right now and we we had a broken system and now we have a great system we have a system where other countries are coming to us and saying we want to get some of those tests I want to thank Abbott ‚cause Abbott came up with the first simpler tests the first was rough if you were I think it’s more of an operation than a test the first one was for anybody that took it it was not easy but now we have a very simple test with Abbott now we have saliva we have lots of other things that are happening but we have millions of tests the governors are responsible they have to take charge they have to do a great job and we’re going to suggest that they check people through tests or otherwise coming into their States and they run their states very strong eventually we won’t have to do that eventually this will be gone but for a while we’re going to do it so they’re going to take charge at their borders they going to take charge of people coming in and maybe to an extent depending on what they workout with the nearby state it maybe also people leaving and they’ll be able to do that very shortly will be announcing a date but it will be very short and frankly it will be at a time that will be earlier than the deadline that we opposed the end of April so we think that some of the governor’s will be in really good shape to open up even sooner than that will speak to them but we’re all set we’re counting on the governor’s to do a great job others are going to have to take a longer period of time until they are in a position to say we’re ready to go and that’s OK we understand that some of the governors have a very tough situation but in almost all cases it’s all starting to come down we’re very proud of the job everybody’s done and if you look at the numbers so the minimum is you as portrayed debra’s here doctor Brooks has been fantastic the minimum was 100,000 deaths and I hope to be substantially under the minimum meaning we all hope Mike right we all hope to be substantially under we did the right thing because otherwise it would have been projections are two million people the actual projection was 2.2 million people and if you cut it in half that would be one point 1,000,000 people that’s many more that’s double the civil war and if you cut that in half you’re talking 5 or 600,000 people that’s what we lost in the civil war and that’s cutting it cutting it cutting it and we’re not going to that would not be acceptable it would not be acceptable nothing say one life isn’t acceptable but we weren’t given that option so I’m confident that these respected people that I just read from the list will give us some great ideas In addition to what the governor’s have learned the governor’s have learned a lot I’ve spoken to governors at at the beginning it was a contentious relationship and now it’s a very friendly relationship and a really great relationship and I’m proud to say that some of ‚em I think our friends in some cases they’re Democrats but I think they like me and I actually like them I’ll tell you who they are someday but we’re all getting along and we all want to do the right thing and I think they’re going to do a great job of leading their individual states it’ll be a beautiful thing to watch they’ll go and rely on their mayors and their local town officials they bring it right down and Washington shouldn’t be doing that we can’t be thinking about a Walmart parking lot that’s 2000 miles away well we’re doing testing but a governor of a state can an American and write down the line so it’s going to be I think it’s going to be a terrific system and if we’re unhappy with the state we’re going to let them know where unhappy and if they’re not doing the job and they can’t get the job done and for some reason things are happening that we’re not going to like like the numbers or heading in the wrong direction will have to do something that’s very serious very serious will have to maybe close him up and start all over again but I don’t think we’re going to have to do that I think the governor’s are going to come out at a time that and these will be individual dates and the governor’s are going to come out at a time when they’re ready someone can come out very very shortly and we look forward to watching that process I think it’s going to be a very beautiful process our discussions will focus with the people that we’re dealing with on rejuvenating the economy and always health always health health and life living is number one but the rejuvenated economy and I think it’s going to go quickly will be utilizing our robust testing capacity for the governors will be giving them what they need if they don’t have it themselves we hope by now they’ll be able to have it themselves we were hoping they would have had it themselves early on but they weren’t but such great advances have been made so we’ll be dealing with them on that and we they can rely on us very strongly they’re going to be relying on us I think for some help and were there whether it’s building hospital beds which I don’t think they’re going to need you look at Javid center a great great job that the army core of engineers did FEMA got involved we actually ended up sending our medical people that was not a COVID-19 center and they ask could you do that and then even after we did that it was not used very much meaning they didn’t have to use it nearly to the extent that they thought when they conceived it it wasn’t that they made a mistake nobody made a mistake we built it I’d rather have too much than too little air on the side of caution and it’s really incredible what they did including the two ships that do great ships And I just want to thank a lot of really great people a lot of great politicians and again we’re going to be announcing the political list tomorrow and on there we’re going to have a lot of senators and we’re going to be having a meeting with the governor’s probably on Thursday a meeting by teleconference and a lot of things will be discussed and some of the details will be discussed but we want them to do an incredible job of running this states I think they’ll do an incredible job too after having gotten to know so many of my think each one of them will do an incredible job and again the federal government is there we have ventilators if they need him we have beds if they need a way of hospitals if they need him we have a testing capacity that’s now second to none where again other countries are calling us countries that you thought were doing well or calling us for help on testing so we’re there to help and with that if you have a few questions will take them and if not that would be OK too yeah go ahead, please Jeff

There to help and with that if you have a few questions will take them and if not that would be OK too yeah go ahead please ship first on your announcement about the WH oh I understand your grievances with them but can you address why it is the correct time to do this now in the middle of well we’re going to be dealing with countries and we’re going to be dealing with leaders of different parts of the world we spend 500 million year we have for many years more far more than anybody else including China and I mean look I read off a long list of problems that we have and we’ve had problems with them for years it doesn’t matter we’re looking at a term of 60 to 90 days we’re doing a very thorough investigation right now as we speak but this should have been done by previous administrations along time ago and when you look at the mistakes that were made all of the mistakes that were made it’s just something we have to look at and it is very China centric i told that to President Xi i said the world Health Organization is very China centric meaning whatever it is China was always right you can’t do that can’t do that not right and we spend it again it’s not a question of money but when we’re spending 500 million dollars and China spending 38 million 34 million 40 million 42,000,000 in a case it’s again not money but it’s not right so we’ll see this is an evaluation. But in the meantime we’re putting a hold on all funds going to World Health we will be able to take that money and channel it to the areas that most needed and that’s another way of doing it but we have not been treated properly you mentioned that speaking with the governors yes on probably Thursday what if they don’t listen to you or take your advice or obey you will you will you consider taking away their federal funding I don’t want to say that they’ll listen they’ll be fine I think we’re going to have a good relationship they need the federal government not only for funding and i’m not saying take it away but they need it for advice they’ll need maybe equipment that we have we have a tremendous stockpile that we’re in the process of completing we’re in a very good position again the cupboard was bare when i got here nobody ever thought of thing in all fairness to previous administrations nobody ever thought anything like this was going to happen but it did happen now the governors would be very very respectful of the presidency again this isn’t me this is the presidency the presidency has such great importance in terms of what we’re doing and you could talk about constitution you can talk about federalism you can talk about whatever you want but the best way I’m talking now from a managerial standpoint is to let individual governors run individual States and come to us if they have difficulty and we will help them yet John you talk about having testing and tracing equipment and the facility for that in place to open up the government doctor found she said this morning that that critical testing and tracing ability does not currently exist I don’t know why he said building exists by May 1st the individual governors have testing the individual governance we have many forms of testing and neuf testing is being developed our country has to get opened and it will get open and it’ll get open safely and hopefully quickly some areas quicker than other areas but there is tremendous testing and the governor’s will use whatever testing is necessary and if they’re not satisfied with their testing they shouldn’t open but they’ll use whatever’s test whatever testing is necessary go ahead please thank you Mr President back to The Who will you support the organization again if tedros is immediately replaced or do you want to see him step down as possible or what we’re doing an investigation I don’t know the gentleman but I know there have been problems and it’s been very unfair to the United States just like the World Trade Organization has been very very unfair and now they’re coming into line when they consider China a developing nation and because China is a developing nation they take massive advantage of the United States wide another president stop this I’ve been talking about it from the day i got in and we’re looking at that very very strongly World Trade W so I have problem with World Health and World Trade both of ‚em i’m not sure which is worse you want to know the truth but we’ll figure it out OK go ahead please you were just criticizing The Who for praising China is transparent but you were saying many of the same things about China just a couple of months ago so I mean how do you square your decision so i did a trade deal with China which one is supposed to be spending 250 billion dollars in our country we’re going to be watching very much to see now we’ve got a little bit waylaid by the virus but look I’d love to have a good relationship with China but if you look and we made a phenomenal deal China has paid because of me China has paid us 10s of billions of dollars over the course of a very short period of time billions of it some of that money has been spent to farmers where they were targeted by China we cannot let that happen we can’t let that happen so we ended up signing a very good trade deal now I want to see if China lives up to it I know President Xi I think he will live up to it if he doesn’t live up to it that will be OK too because we have very very good alternatives go ahead 600,000 cases 25,000 deaths and now you want to blame The Who but i spoke in hundreds of people across the country in the last few weeks and say they still can’t get tested and that they aren’t social distancing because of the governor’s yeah yeah yeah excuse me excuse me I know I know your question you’re ready the governor’s the governor’s are supposed to do testing it’s up to the governors go ahead please quiet quiet quiet they are not following your lead that they are not so the governor’s are doing the testing it’s now not up and it hasn’t been up to the federal government go ahead but i told them when they put this here it’s nothing but trouble if you keep talking I’ll leave and you can have it out with the rest of these people if you keep talking I’m going to leave and you can have it out with them just a loudmouth go ahead clarify are you basically lifting your slow the spread before the May 1 deadline i’m not at all the governor’s are going to be running their individual states some of them will say no I can open now and some of them may last longer than we even would think others will say I can you can go I don’t want to mention states but there are numerous states that are in great shape right now their viewing the rest of the country like we don’t even believe this is happening we have a lot of those states they are set to open practically now I mean they would be open now we’re going to let them open sooner than the date we’re going to pick a date we’re going to get a date that’s good but it’s going to be very very soon sooner then the end of the month but there are many states out there that are looking at this and they’re reviewing it and they’re saying we shouldn’t be even included in this you know there are some that want to open up almost now now if we disagree with it we’re not going to let him open we’re not going to let him open if some governor said you know has a lot of problems a lot of cases a lot of death and they want to open early we’re not going to let it happen so with that to watch were there to help but we’re also there to be critics an on testing very important we’ve always wanted the states to do the testing we now providing great testing but the state has to provide the great testing the state has to provide the ventilators but they didn’t do that so we ended up going into the ventilator business essentially and we’ve made 10s of thousands of ventilators and we solve the big problem for the states but we want them to do the testing and we are there to help you please one question just one one question God done China in January for being transparent I’m always respected I’m respectful of other countries why wouldn’t I be respectful of China in the meantime China’s paid us nothing in your last administration nothing in any previous administration they paid us 10s of billions of dollars because of what we’ve done and the trade deal we have they have to give us 250 billion dollars in purchases let’s see if they do that and there also paying us 25% or 250 billion dollars in tariffs so we’re taking in women we take it in billions of dollars for China from China they never paid us $0.10 such a great thing now if they don’t produce or if we find out bad things we’re not going to be happy but right now and we’re doing that that’s what we’re doing look we have an investigation underway we’re paying almost 500 million dollars we have an investigation underway on the World Health Organization we will find out exactly what went on and we may be satisfied that it could be remedied and we may be satisfied satisfied that it’s so bad that it can’t be remedied and if it can’t we’re going to go a different route WHO for praising China for being transparent but you also praised China for being transparent I don’t talk about you on this transparency well you know if I’m is the only person the only leader of a country that closed our borders tightly against china and by the way when I closed up order that was long ahead of what anybody you can ask anybody that was in the room 21 people I was the one person that wanted to do it Deborah can tell you that better than anybody I was the one person that wanted to do it you know why because I don’t believe everything I hear and I close and if we didn’t close our border early very early long before the kind of dates you’re talking about we would have had thousands and probably hundreds of thousands more death please please that’s enough thank you you would have data in the coming days about the coronavirus is disproportionate impact on black men yes that’s being worked on very strongly I would say within 2 weeks and it’s being worked on Deborah we’re working on that very strongly OK CTC is working but we’re getting reports on that yeah please go ahead now in the back yeah parts of the country by the end of the month and if you do that and as a result you see a spike in cases in those areas we made up where we may not you know some countries having some countries haven’t I’m watching other countries I’m studying other countries as they open I mean I don’t want to go into names because for some it would be a little bit embarrassing but I’m studying other countries as we go along so on that we have looked at every country that’s opened some successfully some OK no total disaster but some OK and some have to go back to the hot spot and fix the hot spot we think we’re going to do it very successfully again we have one country but we have lots of different pieces it’s a puzzle we have beautiful pieces beautiful states with capable governors they know when it’s time to open and we don’t want to put pressure on anybody i’m not going to put any pressure on any governor to open i’m not gonna say to governor Cuomo you gotta open within Seven days I want him to take his time do it right and then open New York i’m not putting any pressure on the governors some of them don’t need pressure or not pressure I mean they’re ready to they’re ready to go and that’s a good thing so will open it up in beautiful little pieces as it comes along please go ahead behind you quick question just wondering if you have any thoughts on some of his remarks from earlier today where he basically said that were New York to be pressured to be open it would be a constant would cause a constitutional crisis and basically said that you declared yourself King trump so I’m wondering if you like to play myself I heard he said that but I didn’t I didn’t see the remarks but he understands how we helped him he needed help we gave him 2900 hospital beds he didn’t use them we gave him a ship he didn’t use him and i’m not saying that I’m saying that’s good because you know what that means he didn’t need him but we said it was too much but we wanted to air we said err on the side of caution as i said we said look we don’t think you need it but if you do we’re going to have him built and the army core of engineers did a fantastic job and the US Navy did a fantastic job but we moved the ship that was not meant for covet and we had it redesigned for Cove it but they still didn’t have very many people going in now we are will get along just fine he understands will get along just fine please how do you sure talk please louder who are asked to go back to work well that’s going to be up to the governors the governor’s are going to want to make sure everything safe now I think that companies can do testing on a maybe weekly basis you have to do it every day with the same worker but they can do testing they could do temperature gauges they could do a lot of different things and you know we’re only talking about for a period of time you know eventually we want to get back to where we were we want people actually sitting next to each other in ball games eventually you know we’re not going to rip out every every other seat in baseball stadiums in football stadiums we want to go back to where we were I want people to understand that we’re not going to be like the way you are we have 300 reporters in the back that want to say look at look at this the way this looks I don’t even like the way it looks although I have a lot fewer reporters that’s OK with me but look at the way this looks I’ve never seen anything John I’ve never seen anything quite like it but there are a lot of people we don’t want this I don’t want this I don’t want this eventually we’re going back where restaurants that had 150 seats are going to have 150 seats not 50 seats ‚cause they can’t make it at 50 seats but more importantly the atmosphere is even better we have to get used to it we have to get used to I don’t know the people are going to be shaking hands is readily some will i said to have some of the hospital people today so will people be shaking hands again And I must say I was a little surprised most of them said probably because there is some kind of a thing to it I was never a big hand shaker but when I ran for politics i said I think I better start checking people’s hand go ahead John Mr President couple of financial questions if I could Larry cudlow said this morning that the current run rate the paycheck protection money will run out very soon odd plan to re up it is stalled in Congress what can you do as president trump to try to move that forward what we’re trying to get it done in the problem is the Democrats want to put all sorts of things less time they put Kennedy Center and I hated putting Kennedy Center and I’ve great respect for Kennedy Center but I hated putting it in the bill because it’s just not appropriate right and but they wanted it in for whatever reason they had their own political reason and Jen i said watch the way that blows up and it blew up I think it blew up in their face we want to take care of our workers will worry about other things and other pet projects of Democrats and also Republicans later but it’s been a tremendously successful program I think you see the banks have step up hundreds of thousands of loan applications approved money is going out it’s been a tremendous program really it’s been and obviously it was at a point where we’re almost you know we’re almost the money will be expired and we could use a refill for the workers we want to be able to make sure that small businesses stay open John and I think that will happen yeah go ahead listen California’s governor set out a list of six criteria for reopening the economy there did he consult with you on that and also you said earlier that there were as many as 20 states that could reopen their economies as early as May 1st could you listen I didn’t say all of ‚em by May 1st but there are 20 states actually I was given a #29 states are in very very good shape I don’t want to say whether or not the governor spoke with me about that but we’ve had a very good relationship Gavin newsom and very very good relationship yeah in the back go ahead please thank you very much I have two questions one is one question who cares if you can’t be here that’s too bad you know right question that I have is about the from the United Nations in economist moxom El Toro says that that there’s there’s a danger that the food supply could be interrupted during this pandemic and I wanted to know what you’re going to do about well I think our farmers are incredible they’re producing levels of food like just unbelievable or transportation that’s one of the reasons I have the transportation people on the line tomorrow for the delivery of the food now we’re doing phenomenally with the food and I will say the stores Kroger and Walmart which has a lot of the food and many of the stores they seemed to be in very good shape and I haven’t heard that at all we’re going to be very strong on food supply OK how about one more question go ahead list projections that you mentioned early are based on full social distancing until the end so ease up on these guidelines now how many more Americans do well i’m not easy even for the states that open and they’ll be guidelines but we will not have any problem with that your questions are very interesting question but the states that are opening are not states which will have a problem with that plus they will have to adhere to guidelines until a certain point into the future when the enemy is vanquished now is because of social distancing no dear partially and some of that will stay in effect much of it will say in effect for a period of time but the reason also is that different kinds of states they have lots of room they have fewer people and they have lots of room and that’s one of the primary reasons I want to thank you all very much so a lot of positive things are happening we’re going to have some very strong recommendations for the governor’s we’re going to work with the governor’s the governor’s are going to do a good job and if they don’t do a good job we’re going to come down on the very hard will have no other choice thank you all very much thank you thank you thank you very much everyone
