Coronavirus: White House confirms Trump has "mild symptoms" of COVID-19

Speaking with reporters in front of the White House on Friday morning, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows confirmed that U.S. President Donald Trump has “mild symptoms” of COVID-19, but added that he and First Lady Melania Trump were in “good spirits.”

“The American people can rest assured that we have a president that is not only on the job, will remain on the job and I’m optimistic that he’ll have a very quick and speedy recovery,” Meadows told reporters at the White House.

Trump, 74, is at high risk because of his age and weight. He has remained in good health during his time in office but is not known to exercise regularly or to follow a healthy diet.

    Remember how the evil deep state is using the virus to rig the election, their puppets are lighting fires, etc. It's an agenda I understand and it would be in your own benefit to stop believing the false narratives from the deep state prapaganda machine.

    What's the label Trump attached to those who caught Covid, losers? I guess now he knows you shouldn't mock others who get sick from the virus.

    If all old and sick people die, your economy will be on the top. Do like Trump and dont care if people die. Emotions is something we dont need! If you have Covid 19 give it to your weak relatives so they can die so you get lover taxes!

    When an ordinary American person gets COVID 19, he will be told to stay at home until he can't breathe. When Trump gets COVID 19, he goes to hospital even with mild symptoms and has a medical team to provide service for him. No wonder he doesn't want to wear mask. He just doesn't care about American people!

    Consider the possibilities. 1) Drumpf tested positive on Wednesday, prior to the presidential debate; translation of his thinking …… if I am is going down, Joe's coming with me. 2) It is a lie; to shore up his hard line supporters for his re-election. 3) It is real; and his insane suggestions about ingesting sanitizers, and taking obscure unproven drugs just didn't work. 4) He has a mild encounter from it, meaning he will be even less empathetic to others saying, 'I told you it was nothing'; and finally 5) He ends up a ventilator for 2 months giving the world peace and quiet until he recovers, whereby we will all experience world war 3 because he will blame China for giving it to him. (that about covers it)
