    Conspiracy theory says:
    It’s a Trump plot.

    He goes to hospital for a few days. Stay low for a few days by watching Fox News. Then miraculously recovers.
    Then he can say it is just like a flu. He regains ‘credibility’
    Then he gains millions of sympathy votes and wins the election.

    He says it’s a hoax. Then wears a mask. Supposedly gets sick. Then miraculously finds a cure. A cure that was made months ago. Released to the public just before the election. Just watch….

    Ecclesiastes 11:10– So, remove grief and anger from your heart and put away pain from your body, because childhood and the prime of life are fleeting.

    Ecclesiastes 12:1- Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come and the years draw near when you will say, “I have no delight in them”;

    Psalm 78:8- . . . A stubborn and rebellious generation, A generation that did not prepare its heart, And whose spirit was not faithful to God.

    Ecclesiastes 11:9- Rejoice, young man, during your childhood, and let your heart be pleasant during the days of young manhood. And follow the impulses of your heart and the desires of your eyes. Yet know that God will bring you to judgment for all these things.

    Our young men need discipline and direction


    We must teach our young women a better way


    Our youth must get off of Satan's evil track


    The only hope for the youth is God’s spiritual truth


    Our youth are seeking for the truth

    Andrea Mitchell is a judgemental partisan media talking head using her position to editorialize her personal views. Don’t trust her. Disgusting how NBC News is implying that medical information about Trump is being withheld. LIES LIES and more lies, baiting the Dems to spread rumors. Fake news. So ugly.

    When he recovered the next week or 2, he will tell Americans Covid 19 is not a big deal. You see, I tell you guys before. Coronavirus Is No Big Deal. I've got it and I am fine.

    Just hours before trump announced that he had tested positive for COVID-19, he was mingling with fundraisers at an event held at his New Jersey golf club—and even posed for personal photo-ops with supporters. The event went ahead after the White House learned that one of the president’s closest aides, Hope Hicks, had tested positive for the disease, according to multiple reports.

    "The public needs to know if he or she is up to it." Trump never has been up to it and now he really isn't. So, let's all vote him out in November and put all this behind us, OK?

    Russia's puppy is sick. Deputy of the State Duma Aleksey Zhuravlyov smugly noted, “I’m glad that COVID got involved in the presidential race and it will most likely win. Not Joe Biden or Trump, but COVID will win.” Popov pondered out loud, “So we’ve been interfering and interfering, but all of that was for naught?”

    Lies and more lies… On Thursday afternoon, President Trump claimed that he had won this week’s debate against former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., then veered into complaining about how the Commission on Presidential Debates might change procedures for their next event to avoid him repeatedly talking over his opponent again.

    “Why would I allow the debate commission to change the rules for the second and third debates when I easily won last time?” Mr. Trump tweeted, raising the prospect that he might not go ahead with their second scheduled debate.

    A short time later, his political advisers devoted a 20-minute campaign call with reporters to denouncing commission members by name and accusing them of “bias.” The advisers insisted that Mr. Trump would take part in future debates, but the complaining hardly exuded confidence.

    A day earlier, Mr. Trump was insisting, too, that he was being denied his due for his chaotic and widely panned debate performance. At a campaign rally that night in Duluth, Minn., he also complained that he had not received sufficient media coverage for nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize.
    There is nothing wrong with that buffoon, he is just changing the headlines.

    We wish the President and the first lady to recover quickly and be elected for a second term. Your tax reduction policy will help the American people and the United States quickly recover their strong economy.
    Look what the president has done. How admirable.

    I never ever whant anybody any harm. Nobody no matter how bad they may behave.
    I'm not in a position to judge, that is done on a higher level.

    So this is just stating facts.

    I belive this is just a typical staged trumpetClown hoax, fake news, lie……..
    He will be back in a few days saying: i told you, it's just like the flu, I'm strong, don't wear masks, don't belive science, belive me I'm the stable genious etc. etc. etc…..
    Or even: i took the vacine, and now I'm good, the vacine is good
    and safe..
    I'll only belive this if the trumpetClown gets into emergensy care…….

    IT's just a typical trumpetClown scam…..this is probably just a political move……

    the trumpetClown has over and over again proved that HE IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED…..

    Probably the trumpetClown passed the virus to Hope, and not she to him…….
