Please check against tapes.

POTUS said he’s “going out to visit some of the soldiers and sailors that are wounded.”

“I've been at Walter Reed a lot. I spent almost six months there myself as a patient. And in addition to that, as Vice President, every single Christmas, we spent all of Christmas Day at Walter Reed. These kids are amazing. And thank God, there's not as many people to visit. So all the people I’m seeing today are being treated, more of them are amputees… are people who, in fact, are retired…but they’re real heroes.”

“And then we’re going to go see the vaccination distribution.”

Asked if he supported using reconciliation to pass COVID relief, POTUS said: “I support passing COVID relief with support from Republicans if we can get it. But the COVID relief has to pass. There’s no ifs, ands or buts.”
