Some facts never change. The deaths are still deaths, as COVID-19 has killed more Americans than Vietnam.

In a previously unreported 1998 interview with Howard Stern, Donald Trump compared sex to going to battle in Vietnam and joked he should be getting the Congressional Medal of Honor.
In the May 7, 1998 appearance, obtained and reviewed by CNN's KFile, Trump also said “women are worse than men, they're more sexually aggressive than men,” adding, “If they're married they're even worse.”
Trump also spoke at length about his Miss Universe contest, telling Stern and co-host Robin Quivers, “we don't base it on talent, we don't base it on brains.”
Trump's past comments on women and sex have received renewed scrutiny after a 2005 “Access Hollywood” tape surfaced last week in which Trump brags about doing anything he wants to women — including grabbing them by the genitals — because he's a star. Trump has called those comments “locker room talk,” but did apologize for them in a video statement.

@Olivianuzzi asks Trump: “If an American president loses more Americans over the course of six weeks than died over the entirety of the Vietnam War, does he deserve to be reelected?”
