"It's - I don't think it's ever been done, what we're doing tonight here". "I used to say 65,000", the president said, pointing to a total he promoted just a few days earlier.

"It's devastatingly worrisome to me personally, because if they go home and infect their grandmother or their grandfather who has a comorbid condition and they have a serious or an unfortunate outcome, they will feel guilty for the rest of our lives", Birx said.

"I've been talking about that for years", President Trump says.
