Trump: What Would My Popularity Be If You Didn't Hear All This "Bullshit" For Four Years?

President Trump gave himself an “A+” for his handling and response to the coronavirus epidemic and a “D” for public relations at a campaign rally in Virginia on Friday. Trump also said Democrats should cancel the election because they are going to lose.

“What would our numbers be if every night, every morning, every day they’re saying Russia, Russia, Russia. It turned out to be a total hoax. In fact, Biden’s son, it was just revealed two days ago got three and a half million dollars from the wife of the mayor of Moscow. Think of it. Think about that. We did all these incredible things with the economy. Then we got hit with this virus from China. They never should have let it happen. We won’t forget it. And we closed up. We saved millions of lives. Now we’ve opened it to records. But what would our popularity be if every day, almost four years you didn’t hear any of this bullshit?” Trump asked.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: This is actually a much easier campaign in a way. The only problem is I’ve been tarred with this horrible witch hunt for four years and I didn’t do it. No, think of it. What would my numbers be if I didn’t go through almost 4 years of a Russian witch hunt that turned out to be just the opposite? They were the ones that were involved with Russia.

It was a whole big disinformation campaign. Now what would numbers be with all we’ve done? And if you didn’t hear night after night on fake news CNN and MSDNC and “The New York Times” and “The Washington Post.” And now it’s turning out — not turning out, it’s done. Because if you look at everything that’s come out in the last few days, it’s we caught them! They’ve been caught. They spied on my campaign, and they tried for a coup. Can you believe it? We caught them cold.

So what would our numbers be? Our numbers, not my numbers — what would our numbers be if every night, every morning, every day they’re saying Russia, Russia, Russia. It turned out to be a total hoax. In fact, Biden’s son, it was just revealed two days ago got three and a half million dollars from the wife of the mayor of Moscow. Think of it. Think about that. We did all these incredible things with the economy. Then we got hit with this virus from China. They never should have let it happen. We won’t forget it. And we closed up. We saved millions of lives. Now we’ve opened it to records. But what would our popularity be if every day, almost four years you didn’t hear any of this bullshit?

What would they be? True. What would they be? With all we’ve done, I think it would be very nice if the Democrats would say, ‘if you’d like we can cancel the election because we have no chance.’

But you know what? Hopefully, they have no chance anyway and hopefully you’re going to remember what I just said. Because we were unjustly treated, unjustly accused by a bunch of treasonous crooks. A bunch of bad, bad, people who got caught and I think they’ll have to pay a substantial price.

When the plague arrived from China we launched the largest national mobilization since World War II. We pioneered life-saving therapies reducing the fatality rate 85% since April. You know, the question was asked to me how well did we do on the pandemic? And I said I give us an ‘A’ to an ‘A+.’ You look at the ventilators, you look at all we’ve done. We did a great job. We helped governors.
