PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Well we're considering different things. But we're also considering the fact that last year you had approximately 36,000 deaths due to what's called the flu. And when I first heard this four, five, six weeks ago, when I was hearing the amount of people that died from the flu, I was shocked to hear it. Anywhere from 27,000, to 70,000 or 77,000 and I guess they said in 1990 -- that was a particularly very bad -- it was higher than that. As of the time I left the plane with you, we had 240 cases -- that's at least what was on a very fine network known as Fox News. I know you love it. But that's what I happened to be watching. And how was the show last night? Did it get good ratings, by the way? 

REPORTER: I don't know. 

TRUMP: Oh really? I heard it broke all ratings records but maybe that's wrong. That's what they told me. I can't imagine that happened.
