President Donald Trump gave an inspirational message to Americans who are feeling vulnerable as life has radically changed in recent days across the world amid the outbreak of the coronavirus, which originated in China.

“I want to say that I know that this is a challenging time for all Americans,” Trump said. “We’re enduring a great national trial, and we will prove that we can meet the moment. I want to insure the American people that we’re doing everything we can each day to confront and ultimately defeat this horrible, invisible enemy.”

“We’re at war. In a true sense, we’re at war and we’re fighting an invisible enemy, think of that,” Trump continued. “For those of you who are feeling alone and isolated, I want you to know that we’re all joined together as one people, eternally linked by our shared national spirit. We love our country. The spirit of courage and love and patriotism.”

“No American is alone as long as we are united, and we are united,” Trump continued. “We’re very united. People are saying things now that three weeks ago they didn’t talk that way. We’re very united. No force is equal to the strength of a unified America, united America, an America like we have it right now.”

“For those worried and afraid, please know as long as I am your president, you can feel confident that you have a leader who will always fight for you and I will not stop until we win,” Trump concluded. “This will be a great victory, this is going to be a victory, and it’s going to be a victory that in my opinion will happen much sooner than originally expected.”
