“He’ll lock up. This guy wants to shut himself off, “said Trump about his rival presidential candidate Joe Biden. “He’ll listen to scientists. If I listened fully to the scientists, we would currently have a country in a massive depression.
“We’re like a rocket. Look at the numbers, ”Trump told the crowd. “That choice is a choice between a super Trump recovery we are in right now or a Biden depression.
“Depression – just remember the word,” he said.
Nearly 220,000 deaths have been reported in the United States, more than any other country. Trump himself tested positive for COVID-19 on October 2. He was hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for 72 hours.
Biden’s campaign spokesman Andrew Bates responded with a statement that Trump had already destroyed the economy: “Donald Trump has overthrown the strong economy he inherited from the Obama-Biden administration by ignoring and constantly attacking warnings from scientific and medical experts who work 24/7 to save lives. “”
