Trump Holds a Press Conference

Donald Trump is holding a press conference -- he is ten minutes late.

Trump has spent the past two days capmpaigning in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Arizona. On Tuesday, he also made a last-minute stop in Iowa for a briefing about damage from the derecho last week that has left thousands without power and caused catastrophic damage across the battleground state.

Trump arrives.

Trump announces he is restoring sanctions against Iran. He blasts Obama and Biden for the deal they made with Iran


We're going to have peace in the middle east pretty soon. Everybody wants in on the deal he made with the UAE. He praises himself for taking out Iran's Solemeni and ISIS' al-Baghdadi.

He says ISIS is gone from Syria. (Absolutely not true, they've alive and bombing and gaining numbers).

Democrat-run cities are a mess. We sent more than 1,000 federal agents to help them.

Operation Legend has resulted in 1,500 (not sure that's the number he said) arrests and these people are going to go to prison for a long time. A long time.

New cases have declined in 80% of the jurisdictions. Hospital rates have fallen. 95% of deaths have occurred among people over 55. Deaths of people age 44 and under are 2.7% Other western nations are doing much worse.

We must be vigilant when around old people. For university students, it's no worse than a seasonal flu. It's bad that colleges are shutting down. It is safer for students to live with other young people than to go home and spread it to old people. Democrat places are still shut down and causing tremendous depression, suicide, drug and alcohol abuse.

We have tremendous unused testing capacity. We will continue to protect the high risk while letting everyone else go back to work.

Calls it the "China Virus" repeatedly.

He's done and taking questions.

    He was definitely triggered.  Such a contrast in real time with Obama giving that thoughtful serious speech and Trump rage tweeting nonsense IN ALL CAPS.

    They are brightly colored fish with a large head and big teeth.  They hang out around reefs and canal walls in developed areas eating shellfish and tiny edible creatures in the moss covered rocks..  They are very aggressive and I have been bitten a few times when dangling my feet in the water at my dock.  They like to nibble on toes.
