Donald Trump Infected With Covid-19
The president, 74, who is regularly tested for Covid-19, said via Twitter that he and the first lady would now begin their quarantine and recovery process.
“We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China. It’s going to be just fine.”
The development, which comes late in the run-up to the Nov. 3 presidential election, has raised the possibility that others at the highest levels of U.S. government could have been exposed to the virus in recent days and may need to quarantine as well.
Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!

“It’s going to disappear. One day, it’s like a miracle — it .
White House physician Dr. Sean Conley said the White House medical team would maintain a “vigilant watch,” before adding he expected Trump “to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering.”
The president’s diagnosis added more uncertainty to the election, an event that was already weighing on the market and keeping traders on edge as they attempted to evaluate the possible outcomes. Is Trump vitamin D deficient, does he have the Neanderthal genes linked to it to being more dangerous? Does he have a bad heart? I guess we’ll find out.
Donald Trump has been pretty dishonest about the coronavirus in America. That not something you ever want to see in a global leader.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said President Donald Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis could change the dynamic of talks toward a stimulus deal. If only Trump knew what it was like to be among the common folk. Trump’s positive coronavirus test does mean other precautions need to be taken, with those in the line of succession likely to be in limited contact with the president to reduce their chances of contracting the virus.
We knew the day would come when a famous global leader would get Covid-19, and Donald Trump’s carelessness was surely a contributing factor. Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic has been sharply criticized, although the president frequently hails his own management of the health crisis.
At a campaign rally in Ohio late last month, Trump claimed the disease “affects virtually nobody.” Now he has it and must deal with his own inner demons.
President Donald Trump has repeatedly lied about the coronavirus pandemic and the country’s preparation for this once-in-a-generation crisis. Unfortunately if you are over 70 and male, your prognosis is not necessarily the best.
Like a miracle, the President of the U.S. has Covid-19, now what? What has Mr. Trump said about it before?
January 22: “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China. It’s going to be just fine.”
February 7: “It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flu… This is deadly stuff,” Trump told Bob Woodward in quotes only released on September 9 ahead of the publication of the veteran US journalist’s new book.
February 26: “This is a flu. This is like a flu.”
February 27: “It’s going to disappear. One day, it’s like a miracle — it will disappear.”
March 6: “I like this stuff. I really get it. People are surprised that I understand it… Every one of these doctors said, ‘How do you know so much about this?’ Maybe I have a natural ability. Maybe I should have done that instead of running for president.” (on scientific research for treatments)
March 11: “The virus will not have a chance against us. No nation is more prepared or more resilient than the United States.”
March 14: “I’d rate it a 10,” (on his coronavirus response).
March 17: “I’ve always known this is a real — this is a pandemic. I felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic… I’ve always viewed it as very serious.”
March 22: “I’m a little upset with China, I’ll be honest with you.”
April 3: “I’m feeling good. I just don’t want to be doing — somehow sitting in the Oval Office behind that beautiful Resolute Desk, the great Resolute Desk, I think wearing a face mask as I greet presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens, I don’t know, somehow I don’t see it for myself. I just don’t. Maybe I’ll change my mind.”
April 24: “Then I see the disinfectant which knocks it out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside for almost a cleaning? Because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it’d be interesting to check that.”
April 30: “I think that the World Health Organization should be ashamed of themselves, because they’re like the public relations agency for China.”
May 19: “When we have a lot of cases, I don’t look at that as a bad thing, I look at that as, in a certain respect, as being a good thing… Because it means our testing is much better. I view it as a badge of honor, really, it’s a badge of honor.”
July 28: “I happen to believe in it. I would take it. As you know, I took it for a 14-day period. And as you know, I’m here. I happen to think it works in the early stages.” (on hydroxychloroquine)
September 22: “We must hold accountable the nation which unleashed this plague onto the world, China… the Chinese government, and the World Health Organization — which is virtually controlled by China — falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission.”
October 2: “Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!.”
Let’s indeed fight together, maybe now you will know what side you are on Mr. President? I hope it’s just like the flu in your case Mr. President.
