Donald Jr. on Thursday said COVID deaths 'are almost nothing' on the day nearly 1,000 Americans died from the virus and as cases hit a record high. 

The president's oldest son told Fox News' Laura Ingraham that CNN's Sanjay Gupta and those who agree with him are 'truly morons' for warning voters who have attended his father's rallies to quarantine for 14 days. 

Daily deaths remain low compared the counts seen in the spring, but are now creeping toward 1,000 a day, with 974 fatalities recorded Thursday, 994 on Wednesday and 985 fatalities reported Tuesday. More than 8 million Americans have tested positive; 228, 647 have died. 

Don Jr. said: 'I put it on my Instagram a couple of days ago, because I went through the CDC, because I kept hearing about new infections. Why are they talking — why aren't they talking about deaths? Oh, oh! Because the numbers are almost nothing, because we've gotten control of thing and we understand how it works.

'We have the therapeutics to deal with it. If you look at my Instagram, [Covid deaths have] gone to almost nothing. We are outperforming Europe in a positive way. We've gotten a hold of it.'
