“I want to express my sensitivity and concern for the President,” Jones told the station. “No one in the world has the ability to handle this COVID any better than the office of the President of the United States. I’m very confident that he’ll be able to continue governing. I’m sure he’s anticipated this. Knowing him, he’s the hardest worker you’ve ever seen. Knowing him, he’ll be able to go right on through this and hopefully not miss a beat.”
