President Donald Trump, when asked if he would be willing to send aid to Iran for the coronavirus, said he’d be willing to help. The president also used the opportunity to slam Democratic rival, Joe Biden.

Trump, who said Iran was not being truthful in reporting their coronavirus cases, told reporters he’d consider sending aid to Iran. 

“If Iran needed aid on this I would be willing to do something if they want it if they ask for it. I would be certainly willing,” said the President. “They were hit very hard. Obviously those numbers weren’t correct numbers that they reported but if they needed help, if they needed aid, if they needed ventilators we have thousands of ventilators currently on hands and ventilators under construction under – that are under construction. That’s a mosquito. I don’t like mosquitoes. I don’t like mosquitoes at all.”

Trump continued to suggest he’d help Iran, saying, “Yeah, we would certainly be willing to help and what they should do is be smart and make a deal. It is only because of you know you look at what happened John Kerry I guess just doesn’t want them to make a deal and they are probably figuring they can wait and maybe it will be Biden and they will own America if Biden gets in and they know with me it doesn’t work that way, it doesn’t work that way.”
