The Republican president, attacked by his Democratic Alliance rival Joe Biden over the U.S. government’s slow response to the coronavirus, has been playing the issue for months as it grips and spreads across the country.

In an interview on March 19, Trump told Woodward that some “amazing facts” simply showed the magnitude of those at risk: “It’s not just that they’re old, old. And young people, a lot of young people.”

Trump on Wednesday defended his control of the virus, which has killed more than 190,000 people in the United States.

Mattis asked his assistant to write the words in an email, the Washington Post reported.
