    His team has proven their willingness to promote fraud and deception. I'm betting this is bull. He'll conveniently 'recover' and enthrall his core with tales of invincibility etc. Sorry Donnie…either way you're done with your malevolent hunkering at 1600 Penn.

    TRUMP AND THE REPUBLICANS are super-spreaders of corona for not wearing a mask, not social distancing, and it finally caught up to them…KARMA… and corona is real and not going away, anytime soon so corona is waiting for those who don't.

    Now the clever Donald Trump has all the possibilities that he has spread in his stupidity in recent months to try on himself. The best thing to do is to start with the disinfectant and, if it doesn't help, try the hydrochloride. He can also try to immunize himself quickly with the vaccination he announced. I have absolutely no feeling for him, just as he had no feeling for the many thousands of Covid-19 dead or sick. Now it's his turn. In contrast to the normal US citizens, however, he will get the best doctors and the best medication and when he is admitted to the hospital, he will be given a gold-plated tube on the breathing machine. I can only hope that he will learn from it and that it is not a fake with which he wants to get votes!

    He paid someone to take the test so he could pass.

    No one in Trump’s circle can be trusted when it comes to the truth. An outside doctor with unquestionable integrity would have to test Trump for it to be believable.

    This is fake news. Trump needs to show his long-form COVID test. I have people looking into this and you wouldn't believe the things they are finding. JUST A HOAX FOR SYMPATHY VOTES, FOLKS!!!

    Unbelievable how he speaks as if he isn’t the a President now & if he wins in November, he will turn things around and end the pandemic, the protests and everything that is off the rails in the country. News flash: You have been the President this whole time, moron. You are the incumbent
