Democrats are delighted at this new misfortune that has befallen the President.
This could shake up the entire campaign.
Donald Trump was stunned when he heard this bad news from the doctor.
Over seven and a half million Americans have tested positive for the novel coronavirus and many more have gotten it without getting a test.
The CDC estimates that the death rate for the coronavirus is approximately twice that of the flu. Most of the deaths have been in people over 80 and 42% of coronavirus deaths are of nursing home and residential care home residents.
The vast majority of healthy individuals who get coronavirus are able to recover with minimal problems.
The fact that President Trump has tested positive for coronavirus is not surprising given that it is a widespread illness and he has an actual job to do and can’t hole himself up in his basement.
Currently, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows confirmed that Trump has mild symptoms but is in “good spirits.”
“President Trump remains in good spirits, has mild symptoms, and has been working throughout the day,” Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement on Friday. “Out of an abundance of caution, and at the recommendation of his physician and medical experts, the President will be working from the presidential offices at Walter Reed for the next few days. President Trump appreciates the outpouring of support for both he and the First Lady.”
However, Democrats are trying to use this to urge on their coronavirus panic and attack Trump.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was caught on camera not wearing a mask, implied that it was the President’s fault for getting sick.
“This is tragic, it’s very sad, but it also is something that, again, going into crowds, unmasked, and all the rest, was sort of a brazen invitation for this to happen,” Pelosi said Friday morning on MSNBC airwaves. “Sad that it did, but nonetheless, hopeful that it will be a transition to a saner approach to what this virus is all about.”
Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, a Democrat, caught the coronavirus last week despite the fact that Northam made it a class one misdemeanor for anyone over 10 years old to be in public without a mask.
Unless a person is staying completely socially distanced, they run the risk of catching the coronavirus, yet the Democrats still blame Trump as if it is a personal failing that caused him to catch the coronavirus instead of it being a natural consequence of him doing his job.
All Americans should join together and wish the President and First Lady a speedy recovery instead of making this into yet another senseless political battle.
