Conley, at a Walter Reed presser, says Trump has "continued to improve." He says Trump has had "two transient drops in his oxygen saturation."

“He doesn't have a birth certificate. Now, he may have one but there's something on that birth -- maybe religion, maybe it says he is a Muslim. I don't know. Maybe he doesn't want that. Or he may not have one.” - Trump on Obama, 2011
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. …They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” - Trump, 2015
“Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president? I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?"  - Trump on Fiorina, 2015

"I'm the best thing that has ever happened to Puerto Rico" says Trump, who:

- Responded too late to Puerto Rico's disaster needs; thousands died there.
- Tossed paper towels to a crowd during his only appearance there.
- Pondered “trading” Puerto Rico for Greenland.
He also threatened to veto a $4.7 billion emergency aid package intended to help Puerto Rico recover from a series of damaging earthquakes. washingtonpost.com/us-policy/2020…
And he held a grudge against our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico, apparently because he didn't like all the bad press he received for ignoring the island's needs and challenges: bloomberg.com/opinion/articl…

Trump admitted to Woodward on March 19 that he deliberately minimized the danger of the coronavirus. “I wanted to always play it down,” Trump said.
