(CNSNews.com) - The coronavirus pandemic "is rounding the corner," President Donald Trump told a rally in Gastonia, N.C. on Wednesday.
"They hate it when I say it," Trump said, pointing to reporters:
You know, you turn on to this MSDNC and fake news CNN, all you hear is COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID. COVID -- COVID, COVID, COVID. That's all they put on because they want to scare the hell out of everyone.
And you know, the more testing you have, the more cases. They say cases are up--yeah, testing is up. We have more testing than India, China and almost every other country put together. You could say it's ridiculous, at the same time we did a good job but it shows a lot of cases and it's -- thank you. He (audience member) said, 'Great job.' We did do a great job.
Normal life will fully resume, and next year will be the greatest economic year in the history of our country. That's where we are headed.
This election is a choice between a Trump super-recovery or a Biden steep depression, and that's what you're going to have. It's between a Trump boom or a Biden lockdown. He wants to lock you down. You know by the way--by the way I love this state, you've got to get your governor to open up your state here. Got to get him to open up.
Open up your state, governor. It's time. You've been long enough. Watch -- November 4, 'North Carolina, we are opening up.' November 4th.
You know, they're only doing this for political reasons. Many, many states -- big, big, powerful states, they're open, they are doing great, but your governor doesn't want to.
And you look at Michigan -- now Michigan, we won in the Supreme Court. She (Gov. Gretchen Whitmer) had no constitutional right to do what she did. The only one that had freedom in Michigan was her husband. He had plenty of freedom. He went swimming and he went boating whenever he wanted.
Biden will delay therapies, postpone the vaccine, prolong the pandemic, close your schools and shut down our country, and that's what he'll do.
As CNSNews.com reported, the number of COVID cases is accelerating, but with better treatments available, the death count, based on death certificates submitted to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, resumed
