We were doing better than any country had done in history…and then we got hit with this terrible plague from China and now we’re getting closer to fighting our way out of it…Our country is coming back, our jobs numbers are spectacular, a lot of things are happening that people don’t quite see yet. We’re on our way to a tremendous victory. It’s going to happen and it’s going to happen big. Our country will be greater than ever before.

– Donald Trump
