How Trump's condition after COVID-19 diagnosis could impact 2020 presidential campaign

U.S. President Donald Trump is working from his hospital room at Walter Reed Medical Center after he flew there on Friday. It’s still not clear where and when Trump contracted the virus, but as Jennifer Johnson reports, the focus tonight is on the risk he faces with a disease he’s so far downplayed.

With the president still in hospital and having to self-isolate for several days, it puts his ability to campaign on hold. Jackson Proskow talks us through the implications given it’s only one month until the election – and how the vice-president and three of his children plan to hit the campaign trail in Trump’s place.

    The ads Biden pulled have nothing to do with respect. Biden pulled the ads because he was facing a defamation lawsuit for white suprematist comments .

    Damn your country is stupid…… Two idiots are competing to be president. Both are criminals and snakes and millions of people are behind them. Your country runs full slavery from birth. You are registered when born. You work to give them money. You do what they want.

    COVD19, doesn't discriminate, whatever skin colour one has, whatever position or status one has in life, whatever creed or race one belongs to, all everyone has to do is follow all the health guides implemented by health experts, not by stubborn groups of people. With rise in infected cases in America, around 10 million will be affected, so just follow the protocols & Americans will not fall into this horrible unseen enemy.

    Stop calling Trump slightly overweight!

    If Trump lives he is smarter than Biden, if Trump dies he is still smarter than Biden. Regardless, Trump will still win because leftists are low iq dimwits that nobody likes and Biden is a racist who sniffs kids.

    I must applaud the complete lack of bias in this coverage. Constantly shilling, I mean showing, Biden wearing a mask sure does play up his resolute adherence to safety! It's just too bad he didn't have that same attitude when the virus first came out. Both Biden and the mainstream media called Trump a xenophobe for something that he was "overreacting" to back when the pandemic first appeared. Meanwhile Nancy Pelosi was calling people to Chinatown for celebrations and the virus was being referred to as the Chinese Corona Virus by ALL of you – Yet Trump mishandled this and he's a racist so shut up and don't think. Out of everyone he was the one who took the most action. Yes, he reassured the people that it could be handled and it didn't go well, but the virus proved to be more than ANYONE could have expected, least of all democrats. This hypocritical blame shifting is laughable and irresponsible. It's your duty to give unbias news based on fact, not your opinions. Love Trump or hate Trump, this type of hack journalism is disgraceful.

    Trumpet should get Grammy Awards for best Sales Stooges on his Stunt Show, he keep going on to infect people mind by going round in Clown Circus. His infection show is to con and intend to draw the whole world attention to get pity and blessing. End result, walk out hospital……
    Next debate Trumpet excuse will tell the world, "without mask, its OK u got covid n can get thru easy, he use himself to sell to the world"

    A reckless man like Trump should not be receiving any treament. He is stressing the healthcare system. Anyone who is reckless should be denied treatment.

    I am not for presidents who get Corona virus. They are losers. I support presidents who didn't get Corona virus.
