President Donald Trump on Saturday, April 11, vowed to rebuild the United States in honor of the victims of the CCP Virus, or COVID-19, once the pandemic is over.

“We’re going to rebuild it again in honor of all those who perished today,” the president said in an interview with “Justice with Judge Jeanine” on Fox News on Saturday night.

President Trump said that the U.S. economy will see “a tremendous surge” ahead “like a rocket ship” once restriction measures to curb the spread of the CCP Virus are removed and Americans head back to work.

“We’re going to have, just a tremendous surge. I think it’s gonna be like a rocket ship. I really believe that,” the president said. “We’ll have to see what happens. But there’s a lot of things happening but with all of that, we still have to remember all of the people that perished.”

The president explained that the $2.2 trillion relief package passed by Congress in response to the CCP Virus and the American public’s desire to get back to work would help the economy recover.

“I think the stimulus, coupled with this pent-up demand and everybody wanting to get out and go back to work. I think we’re going to have a just a tremendous surge,” President Trump said.

The president said that the United States responded to the virus crisis the “right way,” arguing that the country would have experienced larger numbers of fatalities if the safety guidelines had not been implemented.

“We did it the right way. We took care of social distancing and all of the things, words that nobody ever heard before, frankly, and phrases. But if we didn’t do that, we would have pulled through it,” he said. “There were estimates—2.2 million people. Well, if you cut that in more than half and you said a million and cut that in half. You say 500,000, it just would have been unacceptable.”

The president added that Americans have “gone through a lot,” but “we’ll be back bigger and better and stronger than ever before, you watch.”

President Trump announced on Friday that he will establish another task force to reopen the U.S. economy, adding that the new council will be announced next Tuesday with “a lot of great names, different businesses, different people, bipartisan.”
