Trump: Next Few Weeks Will Be "Horrendous," "Like We Haven't Seen In This Country"

|

President Trump issued a warning Saturday that the next few weeks of the coronavirus pandemic will be "horrendous," with death toll numbers "like we haven't seen in this country."

"What can you say? I mean, I don't think we've seen a time like this in the country."

"We're coming to a time that's going to be very horrendous, probably a time like we haven't seen in this country," he said. "We're getting to that point where it's going to be really some very bad numbers."

"But unfortunately, we're getting to that time when the numbers are going to peek at it's not going to be a good-looking situation. I really believe we probably have never seen anything like these kind of numbers. Maybe during the war during a world war, a World War One or Two or something, but this is a war all unto itself and it's a terrible thing."

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: I'm sure that, you know, that all of us are going to be working very hard. We're working very hard. We are really coming up into a time that's going to be very horrendous. Probably a time like we haven't seen in this country. When you say? I mean, I don't think we've seen a time like this in the country.

And we're getting to that point where it's going to really be some very bad numbers. We want to keep those numbers a lot lower than they would've been and we will do that. We have tremendous talent working. We have tremendous people, and that includes governors, that includes everybody. Everybody's working.

But unfortunately, we're getting to that time when the numbers are going to peek at it's not going to be a good-looking situation. I really believe we probably have never seen anything like these kind of numbers. Maybe during the war during a world war, a World War One or Two or something, but this is a war all unto itself and it's a terrible thing.

We will be seeing you soon, will keep you totally abreast. We're also going to be releasing new ventilator numbers because we have a lot of them coming and a lot of them going to different locations and we appreciate it very much. Thank you.
