Trump's Remarks After Air Force One Arrival; Prescott, AZ; October 19, 2020

REMARKS

Remarks by President Trump After Air Force One Arrival | Prescott, AZ
Issued on: October 19, 2020

Prescott Regional Airport
Prescott, Arizona

11:36 A.M. MST

THE PRESIDENT: Hello, everybody. You know our senator. You know our governor. They’re great — both of them. And they’re doing a terrific job.

We have a big — two speeches today. And we have thousands and thousands of people waiting. There’s never been anything like this, I will say that, with — I’m being very humble. I’ll say that, Jeff. Is that okay? But there’s never been anything like it. We have tremendous crowds. You saw the lines. They formed two days ago.

So we’re going to make two stops. And you’re going to be with us a little bit, and I know you’re going to be with us a little bit.

And we have a very exciting election coming up. We’re doing very well in North Carolina, very well in Florida, very well pretty much everywhere. We’re looking — we’re doing very well. And when people find out really what we’ve done and how good the economy is and how it’s coming back, the numbers are fantastic. So we — we seem to be in very good shape.

Any questions?

{snip}

Q You’ve been saying that Dr. Fauci said not to wear a mask, but he’s been saying to wear a mask for months.

THE PRESIDENT: Well, he used to say don’t wear a mask. So, you know, you have people on both sides of it. But I’m okay —

Q So why are you still quoting that?

THE PRESIDENT: Excuse me. I’m okay with masks. I like it. I think it’s good. A lot of people like it. This gentleman has done an incredible job in Arizona, and he’s taken a very tough stand. But he’s let his economy grow. And, frankly, if they would’ve done that in Michigan and various other places, where the governor just shut it down for everybody except for her husband.

{snip}

Q Mr. President, do you understand that when it comes to the science and a new virus, things change; scientists learn new things and that’s why Fauci and some scientists changed their recommendations?

THE PRESIDENT: You don’t understand. I understand well. You don’t understand, and you never have understood.

Q Is this election going to be a repeat of 2016, given the polls?

THE PRESIDENT: I think so. I think we’ll do better than 2016. We’re way ahead of where we were in 2016, and I’ve done things that nobody has ever done. We built the greatest economy in the world, and we’re building it rapidly again.

If you look at Arizona — you look at the job they’ve done. And I’m just leaving other states. I mean, every one of these Republican-run states are doing phenomenally. The Democrat-run states are not, but they’re not going to affect our numbers very much. I think they’re going to open up on November 4th. They’ll be opening up on November 4th.

And, by the way, the fact that Kristen Welker is, you know, a dyed-in-the-wool radical-left Democrat, or whatever she is —

Q It’s not true, Mr. President, and you know it.

Q That’s not true.

THE PRESIDENT: Okay. Okay. And then ask — why are you defending her?

Q That’s not true, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: Then ask her: Why did she delete her account? Would you please have her put her account back?

Q Mr. President, you’ve dealt with her, and you know she’s a fine journalist.

THE PRESIDENT: And you know what? It’s not going to affect — I know you want to stick up. It’s not going to affect me. I’m going to be there. But, you know, I told you about the last one, and I was right. And I told you about Savannah Guthrie, and I was right. And I’m telling you about Kristen Welker. Kristen Welker should put all of her statements back on. She deleted her entire account. She shouldn’t do that.

Q What are they going to do with the mics? Are they trying to have —

THE PRESIDENT: The what?

Q Are they trying to have the moderator be able to turn off the mics? Is that what —

THE PRESIDENT: I have no idea.

{snip}

Q Will you authorize your doctors to tell you when you tested negative last, before the last event?

THE PRESIDENT: Sure. Is that very important to you?

Q Yes, sir, it is.

THE PRESIDENT: You seem to be so intent. But if it’s so important to you — why is it so important to you?

Q Because we want to know how long you may have been —

THE PRESIDENT: I know. But why? Why?

Q We want to know if you followed the rules from the debate commission.

THE PRESIDENT: I know. But why is it so important to you?

Q Will you authorize your doctors to release that information?

THE PRESIDENT: Look at the dedication. Yeah, my doctors have already given it. You know, my doctors have given more information than has been given on any human being in the history of the world.

Q But have not given that detail, Mr. President.

Q Mr. President, can you tell us why — what your campaign strategy seems to be to call Biden a “criminal”? Why is that?

THE PRESIDENT: He is a criminal. He’s a criminal. He got caught —

Q He was the Vice President of the United States.

THE PRESIDENT: Read his laptop. And you know who’s a criminal? You’re a criminal for not reporting it. You are a criminal for not reporting it.

Q I’m asking your strategy.

THE PRESIDENT: Let me tell you something: Joe Biden is a criminal, and he’s been a criminal for a long time. And you’re a criminal, and the media, for not reporting it. Good luck, everybody. Have a good time. Have a good time.

4. A question: Why is trump able to use Air Force One on campaign trips...

when he wasn't supposed to use the White House and Rose Garden for campaign events (he did of course). And there was also the Blexit event last weekend.

6. Because not every event on his western swing was considered a campaign event.

I'm just telling you what they said.

How about those Marine aircraft lined up as a backdrop at Prescott? Trump doesn't fly in a V-22.

8. Like everything tRump, I've no answer to that.

He just plugs away busting norms, rules and laws with no regard for anything but himself.
