Donald aand Melania Trump test positive for Covid

News earlier today – a close aid of President Donald Trump, Hope Hicks, had tested positive for Covid, having travelled with Trump to the debate and to rallies this week.

Trump has just announced that he and Melania have also tested positive and will go into quarantine.

Trump will no doubt have the best health care possible, but he will be concerned as he is in a higher risk age group.

And this will curtail his campaigning that had been progressing despite Covid.

It will also dent his claims that the US is dealing well with Covid.

    Fake news. Covid is a hoax. How can you get sick with a hoax. Sad.

    • That was quick, Pete, the news story is just breaking now. (6.26)

      I thoroughly dislike Trump, but wouldn’t wish him or anyone else to die of C19 (bad kharma to wish such a thing)

      How will this affect the election ? I believe that the US election date is set in stone,

      Maybe he can put the election on hold? If he doesn’t become ill… it may be a hoax? The man is so brave…no masks for him, and he’s paid the ultimate price. A true hero. Was it a conspiracy by the Dems to derail the election… so many choices.

      • He has been wearing masks lately, I think.

        I can’t see it being a hoax, not so close to the election. No, their elections can’t be delayed.

          Yes the elections can be delayed, but won’t.
          Only thing that can’t be delayed is end of president’s term on 20th Jan, if no new president elected then Pelosi is sworn in a s president

      Gee, I can’t see Trump being a particularly good patient. No golf, no rallies, bad polls, lots of twitter. I can see him trying to make a break for it if C19 doesn’t hit him hard. But I get the feeling it’;s going to smash him.

        Trump won’t be able to take Pence being center stage. He’ll tie the bed sheets together and abseil the four floors to get back to the Oval Office.

              Pence only take over if Trump is put under sedation for a ventilator….otherwise its snafu, as he tweets non stop
              Solved the problem of the debate rules or the cut switch, can’t see them happening now

              Yes, it’s a pity this story will take the heat off Labours stuff ups today.

      Your reaction was never in doubt, Duker. Haters gonna hate.

      I wonder how the voters will react – reward Biden for hiding safely in his basement or Trump for risking coming to talk to them?

            It can still happen if you do wear a mask. Best is to stay away from people but many don’t have that option, certainly not US Presidents and in an election campaign.

    The loony Left think they are dancing around Trump’s funeral pyre but it’s early days for seeing how this will play out with voters.

        Trump also now has an excuse should the election go south. He was robbed. Dems will hate that. They would have wanted to see Trump shamed and angry.

        He has many options if he’s SMART.

    • Very bad kharma to hope for the death of someone because you dislike them. I think that Trump is a misogynist, arrogant narcissist, but I don’t hope that he’ll die.
