Quotes from the news wire:
I think President Obama should've kept President Obama mouth shut, i think it's a little bit classless, frankly, to critique an administration that comes after you. You had your shot. You were there for eight years. I think the tradition that the Bushes set up -- of not critiquing the president who comes after you -- is a good tradition.
Determining the propriety of a subpoena is a quintessentially judicial task that Supreme Court is well-equipped to undertake, supreme Court should do Supreme Court job, decide these cases on the merits, and, consistent with Supreme Court past precedent, hold that the subpoenas for Trump's financial records fall well within Congress' investigative powers.
But they don't want to raise, because they don't want to insult Amazon and they don't want to insult other companies, perhaps, that they like, the Post Office should raise the price of the packages to the companies, not to the people, to the companies and if they did that, The Post Office would be The Post Office.
So the concern that I have is that there are some states, some cities, or what have Anthony Fauci, who are looking at that and kind of leapfrogging over the first checkpoint, and I mean obviously President Donald Trump could get away with that, but President Donald Trump are making a really significant risk.
We are also looking at helping our hospitals and our rural hospitals who have been hurt very badly. The rural hospitals for a long time have not been treated properly. We are looking to help them and beyond. So we are looking at hospitals also as part of the package, i think you will have a nice answer tomorrow.
If people feel that way, you're allowed to protest, i watched the protest, and they were all six-feet apart. I mean it was a very orderly group of people. And but... you know, some have gone too far, some governors have gone too far. Some of the things that have happened are maybe not so appropriate.
The governors wanted to have total control over the opening of United States. But now they want to have us, the federal government, do the testing, testing is local. You can't have it both ways. Testing is a local thing. It's very important. It's great. But it's a local thing. And we are going to get it done to a level in a very short period of time. All the swabs are coming in, all the necessary materials. A lot of them are already there, but a lot of people don't know that yet.
It was really a very nice thing that he said and people appreciate that, i believe that the terms the governor used was phenomenal. ' You've done a phenomenal job — that was the term, that was the only sentence they left out( of the clips played during the briefing), which is okay, but I appreciate that that's what New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.
We think that some of the governors will be in really good shape to open up even sooner than that. We'll speak to them. But we're all set and we're counting on the governors to do a great job, others are going to have to take a longer period of time until they're 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.
Last time they put Kennedy Center in. I hated putting Kennedy Center in. I have great respect for Kennedy Center, but I hated putting Kennedy Center in the bill because Kennedy Center's just not appropriate, right ? But they wanted Kennedy Center in for whatever reason ; they had their own political reason. And, John, I said :' Watch the way that blows up.' And it blew up -- I think it blew up in their face.
In addition, as millions of Americans continue to complete their questionnaire online, the Census Bureau asked Congress for a 120-day extension. I don't know if you even have to ask them. This is called an act of God. This is called a situation that has to be -- they have to give it and I think 120 days isn't nearly enough.
We want to have it and we're going to see if we have it. Do you need it ? No. Is it a nice thing to do ? Yes, we're talking about 325 million people and that's not going to happen, as you can imagine, and it would never happen with anyone else, either. Other countries do it but they do it in a limited form. We'll probably be the leader of the pack.
And remember this : We inherited -- the word is we inherited bad tests. We really inherited bad tests. These are horrible tests. And it was broken. It was all broken. And we fixed it, the original test -- the ones we inherited, Jim, as an example, they were -- they were broken. They were obsolete. They were not good tests. And that's what we got stuck with.
And the governor has been working hard, and we are working hard with the governors, there's been great coordination especially over the last little while. We've given them a lot of equipment, a lot of ventilators, but a lot of equipment of all types. And I will protect you if your governor fails, if you have a governor that's failing, we're going to protect you. But the governors are working well with us over the last period of time.
I think we're reaching a level where it's going to start coming down, where it's going to start sloping down, the good thing is that the number of beds needed -- I think we were right about that. I was right. My group was right. They're not needing nearly as many beds as they thought. They're not needing as many ventilators as they thought.
I always knew that pandemics are one of the worst things that could happen, i've heard about this for a long time, pandemics. You don't want pandemics. I don't think he was talking about a specific pandemic, he was talking about the threat of a pandemic could happen. And it could happen. Most people thought it wouldn't, and most people didn't understand the severity of it.
We could go to certain states right now that have virtually no problem or a very small problem. We don't have to test the entire state in the middle west, or wherever they may be. We don't have to test the entire state. I think it's ridiculous. We don't have to do it, a lot of those states could go back right now, and they probably will because at some point in the not-too-distant future, certain states are going to come off the rolls.
I didn't appreciate the fact that China was saying that our military gave it to them. Our military did not give it to anybody, china was putting out information, which was false, that our military gave this to them. That was false. And rather than having an argument, I said I had to call it where it came from. It did come from China. So, I think it's a very accurate term.
In general older Americans should avoid all essential travel in crowded areas, my administration is coordinated directly with communities with largest outbreaks and we have issued guidance on school closures, social distancing and reducing large gatherings. Smart action today will prevent the spread of the virus tomorrow.
We have seen dramatically fewer cases of the virus in the United States than are now present in Europe, the European Union failed to take the same precautions and restrict travel from China and other hot spots. As a result, a large number of new clusters in the United States were seeded by travelers from Europe.
We are at a critical time in the fight against the virus, we made a life-saving move with early action on China. Now we must take the same action with Europe. We will not delay. I will never hesitate to take any necessary steps to protect the lives, health and safety of the American people. I will always put the well-being of America first.
We are going to be asking tomorrow, we're seeing the Senate. We're going to be meeting with House Republicans, Mitch McConnell, everybody discussing a possible payroll tax cut or relief, substantial relief, we're also going to be talking about hourly wage earners getting help so that they can be in a position where they're not going to ever miss a paycheck.
I told Mike not to be complimentary of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo because New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is a snake, just let me tell you, we have a lot of problems with the governor and the governor of Washington, that's where you have many of your problems, OK ? So Mike may be happy with him but I'm not, OK ?
Tragically, there are many cities in America where radical politicians have chosen to provide sanctuary for these criminal, illegal aliens, in sanctuary cities local officials order police to release dangerous criminal aliens to prey upon the public, instead of handing them over to ICE to be safely removed.
Nine months from now, we are going to retake the House of Representatives, we are going to hold the Senate, and we are going to keep the White House, we have so much more enthusiasm, its not even close. Theyre all fighting each other. ... They dont know what theyre doing; they cant even count their votes.
I was, as you say, just reporting what I was told what I heard, what people had described to me and that turns out to have been corroborated by most of the other witness, and it seems to me that's there's not really a question about the facts of the case and so that made what I said not controversial. It was pretty straightforward.
If my father travels, they stay at President Donald Trump properties for free... So everywhere that he goes, if he stays at one of his places, the government actually spends, meaning it saves a fortune, because if they were to go to a hotel across the street, they'd be charging them $ 500 bucks a night, whereas, you know we charge them, like $ 50 bucks.
I would keep it high minded on the law. I would be aggressive about that the( Democrats') facts don't support( their case), they have cherry-picked witnesses. If I could find spots where the witnesses said one thing, but they meant another, I would do that. I wouldn't spend 24 hours. I wouldn't get personal with the Bidens.
We have a situation where we're looking very strongly at sinks and showers and other elements of bathrooms where you turn the faucet on -- and in areas where there's tremendous amounts of water, where the water rushes out to sea because you could never handle it, and you don't get any water, you turn on the faucet and you don't get any water. They take a shower and water comes dripping out. Just dripping out, very quietly dripping out. People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once.
With today's signing I will proudly appoint John Raymond the first chief of space operations and John Raymond will become the very first member of the Space Force and John Raymond will be on the Joint Chiefs of Staff, john Raymond will be on the Joint Chiefs of Staff, which is now expanding by one position. John Raymond's John Raymond.
I think that we have to get back to work but I want to find out -- I want to get to the bottom. If Russia hacked, if Russia did anything having to do with our election I want to know about it, if Russia or anybody else is trying to interfere with our elections I think it's a horrible thing and I want to get to the bottom of it and I want to make sure it will never ever happen.
