    Stand behind your president, it would be horrible for Trump or Biden to die from this virus. Don't forget Biden and Trump and their groups were together backstage before the debates. A mask does not stop one from getting the virus, it limits chances of spread.
    China has now infected the president of the US, how is this funny to anyone?

    Just change your channel to fear mongering and propaganda. It’s nit news. It’s opinion.

    The fact that Trump openly claimed to have covid, instead of trying to hide it, makes it seem very likely that he is faking having covid to get out of having to debate Biden again. In the next debate, they were going to give the moderator the ability to shut off the candidates' mics if they were breaking the rules. Trump knows that he would end up looking like a fool ranting and raving without his mic on. He would rather fake having covid than debate under those rules.

    Why would the president tweet his covid-19 results instead of addressing
    the nation? Nothing has ever stopped him before from having an
    "emergency news conference." Such a coward.

    Trump is transparent with his health issue. Now it is Biden's turn to come clean with his health issue.

    As you all know, we have in the WH the WH supremacist-thieves, running, running, and killing our people, these are the bloodthirsty Putin’s goals and theirs too. Mitch McConnell, and Bill Barr are the two major Nazi leaders working under trump and Putin to direct the WH supremacist regiment to attack and destroy our country, and to kills us all. They all hate Americans very much since their families and them immigrated to America. Bloodthirsty Putin have a large cybercrime mob/cartels regiment to destroy us. Including all the Putin’s and Trump’s dictators allies. They all are preparing something really bad for us in the next coming days. That’s is why crazy-Nazi trump is faking his Covid-19. We need to be “ In Red Alert” 🚨 and prepare for their coming attacks. Maybe Putin, and Trump have lethal weapons ready to attack us. They know trump is losing his presidency, so they ready to attack us soon. Remember, pathological-psychopath trump and Putin never loss, they always win. That is their philosophy. Remember, how Hitler killed the Jews, well they ready to do the same to us.

    truth is that 99.5% of everyone who tests positive for the virus will not for from the virus that's a worldwide fact that can't be disputed that Doctor knows this also viruses, are 1000 times smaller than bacteria with cloth or paper mask the virus travels that material like a water hose through fence line now folks say no it stops the spit well a droplet in airconditioning drys faster, then you have the virus intact blowing around the room fact! also the same outside, and there is scientific data about how bad it is to inhale carbon dioxide all day changes the blood PH making it acidic creating opportunistic health issues

    Did this real that Trump has been diagnosed positive for Covid-19? This guy has proved himself many times that nothing can be believed easily coming from his mouth. He might have secret agenda for this gimmick too. When his rating was collapsing to zero after his debate debacle; he can do anything to change the subject and sudden fall.
