The recovery act cares 4.0 we’ve spent an unprecedented money. The good news is a lot of the three trillion dollars we still have left to put in the economy and put back to work. We’Re focused on starting with another trillion dollars. We think that will make a big impact and the the focus is, as i said, is really about kids and jobs and vaccines we’re, going to make sure that we have a vaccine by the end of the year for emergency use and the plan is we just Updated the president, the vice president. They signed off on this mark and i will be meeting tomorrow with the republicans at the lunch to give them a full briefing. And then we will also be reaching out to the democrats to begin our discussions. But we are committed that by the end of this month, make sure that, before the enhanced unemployment insurance expires, that we pass legislation so that we can protect americans that are unemployed now. We’Ve said the number one issue is: we have to fix the technical fix on enhanced unemployment we’re, going to make sure that we don’t pay people more money to stay home then go to work.

We want to make sure that people who can go to work safely can do so. We’Ll have tax credits that incentivize businesses to bring people back to work; we’ll, have tax credits for pp e for safe work, environment and we’re, going to have big incentives; money to the states for education, for schools that can open safely and and do education.

So these are the priorities as well as liability protection. We want to make sure that frivolous lawsuits don’t prevent schools, universities and businesses from reopening okay mike well. Mr president, i just want to i want to say how much we appreciate the leadership in the house and senate today’s. Conversation is a continuation of your commitment to do whatever it takes to get the american people, american businesses and communities through this very challenging time. The outbreaks across the sun belt are serious, but because of the support that we’ve had from frankly leaders in both political parties in the congress of the united states, we’re meeting this moment with expanded testing personal protective equipment. And, as you said, mr president, with the development and distribution of therapeutics and a rapid development of vaccines, that will all continue but it’s important that the congress come together and uh and provide additional resources for families that have been impacted. Businesses that have been impacted. Uh we’ll make sure our health care workers and our states have the resources that they need uh, but also, mr president, we’re gon na continue to advance policies that will make it possible for us to open up america again and open up america’s schools, and i look Forward, i know, as you do and working with leaders that are gathered here and members of congress and both political parties to deliver another important element of a recovery package that will will keep on working until we bring our country all the way back and reach that Day that we someday put this coronavirus in the past, okay yeah tomorrow begins the process of socializing.

What we’ve been discussing with the administration over the last two weeks with our members and uh? If you’re, looking for a theme here, thank liability protection for those who’ve been trying to deal with the pandemic, we don’t need an epidemic of lawsuits on the heels of the pandemic, we’re already struggling with kids in school jobs and healthcare. To be the theme of the proposal that we hope to come together and represent our republicans and then, as the secretary of the treasury negate, obviously you can’t pass the bill in the senate. Without the democrats, it will begin to talk to them as well. Yes uh. I mean just to sum up what we’re, looking at, if you’re sitting at home and you’re concerned that you don’t have a job, we want to make sure you’re able to come back. We don’t think any federal money should be spent. That gives you disincentive to work. We want to make sure we have incentives to keep going for those small businesses. We’Ll make sure you can stay open. You want to make sure your kids can go back to school, but go back safely, not just for the children but for the teachers as well. We continue to make strides to make sure we get to a vaccine that we find a cure for this virus, that we did not invite. That came from a foreign land and i think that’s the focus that we have to be a part of mitch.

Talks about – and i think, it’s fundamental, not just for schools but for any businesses, striving whether they can open back up or not. They should not have an attack from any lawsuits. We need to give the protection that we rebuild, restore and redo this country to where we were before. I know we can do it together, that’s, why we’re working here we’ll be reaching out to the democrats, and i hope for that moment in time to put politics aside, that we look at one nation that we don’t sit back inside of a rule within a senate That a minority denies the ability to have this debate that denies the ability to help america unite and solve this problem once and for all. We are making great strides when it comes to therapies. What this warp speed. History will write about this when we get to the moment in time that we have this vaccine they’ll write about how fast it would and no other country could do what we did, because the ingenuity of this nation and that’s the focus of what we’re trying to Do the safety of this country for our students, for our teachers and for our businesses that we’re back to work again stronger and safer and more united? It came from china, it should have never been allowed to get out. They could have stopped it, they could have stopped it easily. They chose not to and we’ll have further reports on that, but it came from china.

They could have stopped it, they didn’t, they stopped it from going into china, but they didn’t stop it from going to the rest of the world. It didn’t stop it from going to europe to us. They should have stopped it. They could have stopped it. They weren’t transparent at all. They were the opposite, it’s, not good. I spoke with the president of france this morning and i spoke with uh. I spoke with the president of egypt and we had a very, very good conversation both of us and uh. All of us and all of us together, i’ve, had many conversations with leaders all over the world over the weekend and over the last couple of weeks in particular, and this is a pandemic that is flaring up all over the place. Countries thought they were in good shape and then all of a sudden they have a big flare up. I see that over the weekend. I guess. On friday, there was a record worldwide number of death worldwide because when you watch the news, the local news and you see it and it’s uh it’s, like all about the united states. I never like to talk about what’s going on in the world. But you look at mexico, brazil, uh many countries in europe. Many all over russia, russia’s got a tremendous problem. It’S uh what’s going on is terrible, it’s terrible, but this is a worldwide problem and we’re helping the world with ventilators we’re helping a lot of countries.

They don’t have ventilators and we’re sending thousands of ventilators to different countries, but i do want people to understand. This is a worldwide problem caused by china, but it’s a worldwide problem countries are going through hell and it’s going to we’re going to give you a lot of briefings in the next week and over the next few weeks as to, i think it’s very important to Do it the vaccines and the therapeutics, i think i’m, going to bring some of the great companies that are working and very successfully in the past have worked on these things and they’re, going to tell you very specifically what they’re doing and how they’re doing. But we think we’re doing very well in that regard, those two items i think, frankly, therapeutic. I, like almost better at this point you go in and you make people better now we have had some very good luck with rendissevier that’s been successful and others have been uh successful. The plasma has been successful uh, but we are we’re really coming up with some very good answers being they are all over the world they’re working and we’re working very closely, all over the world on the vaccines and the therapeutics. So we’re going to have some of the heads of these great companies coming in johnson johnson is doing very well. In particular, they seem to be doing very well, but numerous are doing very well it’s, something that i really feel certain, because you can never use totally certain, but pretty damn certain that they’re going to have the vaccine they’re going to have therapeutics and it’s going to Start taking place very shortly, and that will be a great thing for the world.

That would be a great thing, but this is happening all over the world, not just the united states and it’s, a tough one, very tough, very sad when you see the death it’s. All death that could have could have been stopped by china. If they wanted to stop it, they could have stopped it. Okay, thank you very much. All right guys, thanks guys guys let’s go come on guys, guys, let’s go john let’s go come on guys, guys let’s go! Thank you. How important is a payroll tax cut? I think it’s very important. I think it’s. A very important thing is we’re. Good uh it’s been proven to be successful, it’s uh, a big saving for the people, it’s, a tremendous saving and i think it’s an incentive for companies to hire the workers back and to keep their workers. So payroll tax cut to me is very important. We’Re working on it, uh and i don’t think there’s too much dispute as to uh the level of importance. John it’s, a very important thing: okay, that’s one of many elements: we’re discussing we’re, discussing uh, probably a total of 10 different elements, but payroll tax cuts. A very important one: are they? Are they signing? Oh absolutely, no, i think i think hopefully we’ll get there but we’re talking about a lot of things, not just the feral texture, so they’re bringing back virus briefings. Is that your understanding correctly? Well, we had very successful briefings, i was doing them and uh.

We had a lot of people watching record numbers watching in the history of cable television. Television there’s never been anything like it and we were doing very well and i thought it would be sort of automatic and a lot of a lot of positive things were happening. And, frankly, a lot of the country is doing well. A lot of people don’t say as you understand, but we have had this big flare up in florida, texas, a couple of other places, and so i think what we’re going to do is i’ll get involved and we’ll start doing briefings whether it’s this afternoon and tomorrow, Probably tomorrow and i’ll do briefings and part of the briefing i think much more so than last time, because last time we were nowhere with vaccines or therapeutics and let’s say that ended six weeks ago. We’Ll start them again and i think it’s a great way to get information out to the public as to where we are with the vaccines, with the therapeutics and generally speaking, where we are, and so i think, we’ll start that probably starting tomorrow. I’Ll do it at five o’clock like we were doing, we had a good slot and a lot of people were watching and that’s a good thing. I think that kaylee will continue hers at 11 o’clock, just like they were and i’ll be discussing the as i call it the china virus, the china plague i’ll, be discussing it and i’ll also be discussing.

Perhaps some other things, but you know we’re doing very well. In so many different ways, but unfortunately this is something that’s very tough but we’re going to get it solved and i think we’re going to get it solved in numerous ways, but the two best would be vaccines and therapeutics. So we’ll we’ll be happy. Mr president, on portland and other cities that are experiencing violence, there was a report out this morning that you’re considering sending 175 federal troops to these cities to help local law enforcement. Can you fill this in? It depends on what your definition of troops is we’re sending law enforcement, uh portland was totally out of control. The democrats or liberal democrats running the place had no idea what they were doing. They were ripping down for 51 days, ripping down that city, destroying the city. Looting it the level of corruption and what was going on there is incredible and then the governor comes. Oh, we don’t need any help. How about chicago? I read the numbers: were many people killed over the weekend, we’re looking at chicago too we’re? Looking at new york? Look at what’s, going on all run by democrats, all run by very liberal democrats all run really by radical left, but we can’t let this happen to the cities. New york was up 348 percent, the crime wave, so the governor has to do something about it and if the governor governor’s not going to do something about it, we’ll do something about it, but what’s happening in new york a place.

I love. I love new york and look at what’s going on over there, the woman who was shocked because she said: could you please not light off firecrackers and they turned around shot her eight times and she died that’s, not our civilization that’s, not about us and then the Police are afraid to do anything. I know new york very well. I know the police very well new york’s finest and the fact is they’re restricted from doing anything they can’t do anything. So what are you planning to do well, i’m, going to do something that i can tell you because we’re not going to leave new york and chicago and philadelphia detroit and baltimore, and all of these oakland is a mess we’re not going to let this happen in Our country all run by liberal democrats, more federal law enforcement, we’re going to have more federal law enforcement that i can tell you in portland. They’Ve done a fantastic job, they’ve been there three days and they really have done a fantastic job in a very short period of time. No problem, they grab them a lot of people in jail, they’re leaders – these are anarchists. These are not protesters, people say protesters, these people are anarchists. These are people that hate our country and we’re not going to. Let it go forward and i’ll. Tell you what the governor and the mayor and the senators out there they’re afraid of these people that’s. The reason they don’t want us to help them they’re afraid i really believe they’re actually maybe even physically afraid of these people, because what they’re doing is incredible.

We didn’t just go there. This wasn’t, like it, started right away. We went there after 51 days. We said we can’t, let that happen anymore, but these are anarchists and the politicians out there. Yes, they’re weak, but they’re afraid of these people, they’re actually afraid of these people and that’s. Why they say we don’t want the federal government helping how about chicago. Would you say they need help after this weekend? Do you know the numbers? Did you hear the numbers? Many many shot. Many many killed many i’m. Not talking about one two. Was it 18 people killed? I think more than that and you ended up over the summer. This is worse than afghanistan. By far this is worse than anything anyone’s ever seen all run by the same liberal democrats, and you know what, if biden got in, that would be true for the country. The whole country would go to hell and we’re not going to. Let it go to hell.
