The world was reeling this morning after Donald Trump revealed at his latest coronavirus briefing that he had done a ban on China in January.

Nobody had died but I did a ban on China and if I hadn’t done a ban on China we would have had 400 million deaths just in America. But because I did the ban on China we’ve had only a few deaths – some people even came back to life I heard, which is something that’s never happened before. China. They looked at me like I was crazy but I did the ban on China and now we don’t need testing – even though we have the best tests, beautiful tests – because I did the ban on China. You know when I did the ban? January. January. No-one had even heard of the virus in January, but I knew and I did the ban. I banned China. China.”
