President Donald Trump has tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday. The next day, he shared the news with his supporters by writing on Twitter that he and Melania Trump tested positive for COVID-19.
Trump’s reaction to getting covid-19
“We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!” Trump tweeted.
On Friday afternoon, President was shifted to Walter Reed Military Medical Centre “out of an abundance of caution” by helicopter. Talking about the health of the President, Kayleigh McEnany, the White House press secretary, said;
“President Trump remains in good spirits, has mild symptoms, and has been working throughout the day. The President will be working from the presidential offices at Walter Reed for the next few days”.
According to the New York Times, President Trump is not in a critical condition and just showed mild “coldlike” symptoms. It further reported that the President also appeared “lethargic” on Thursday during a fundraising ceremony at Bedminster but did not show any severe symptoms.
What the doctors said about Trump getting covid
According to Trump’s physician, Sean Conley, President Trump, and Melania Trump. “Will continue carrying out his duties without disruption,” in quarantine.
But, here arises a question. If Trump does quarantine for 14 days, what would happen to his campaign? If the virus debilitates the President, how would he attend the presidential debate on October 15?
Trump, who remained active during rallies and outdoor campaigns for many months, has been forced off the track due to COVID -19.
The President testing positive for Corona, just a month before the elections, could influence his election campaign. Due to the quarantine, he has to stay away from rallies, which are an important part of his campaign.
Throughout his campaign, the disease he gave no importance to drove his last month’s movement into a state of uncertainty. He used to mock his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, for wearing the mask during his campaign, and carried out his campaign without wearing a mask, saying that the “China virus” is about to be defeated.
However, if Trump can’t recover, Vice President Mike Pence will become the Acting President under Section 3 of the 25th Amendment.
