President Trump and first lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
Trump announced early Friday that both he and the First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for COVID-19 and will quarantine at the White House.
“Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19,” the president tweeted. “We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately.”
He added: “We will get through this TOGETHER!”
Melania Trump posted, “As too many Americans have done this year, @potus & I are quarantining at home after testing positive for COVID-19. We are feeling good & I have postponed all upcoming engagements. Please be sure you are staying safe & we will all get through this together.”
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows told reporters Friday the president is experiencing mild symptoms but remains on the job.
Well, this is sure one big “October Surprise.”
In presidential elections, the media’s coined a phrase for anything that happens late in the game that changes a race’s calculus. It’s known as an “October Surprise.”
In 2016, we were rife with them. A portion of an old tax return of Trump’s dropped at the beginning of the month, and later on, the Access Hollywood tape blew up right before a debate.
This month’s surprise? In the early hours of Oct. 2, President Donald Trump announced he’d been diagnosed with COVID-19.
Many may not know it, but someone had already predicted that US President, Donald Trump, will announce that he had contracted COVID-19 early October, and that it would be a publicity stunt to overshadow his political opponent in the coming presidential election.
The prediction was made by one JohnCammo on Twitter as far back as September 18, 2020, when he wrote to predict Trump’s announcement. He wrote on Twitter: “Trump’s October surprise will be the announcement of ‘his infection.’ Fake, but quite dramatic. This twist will blow Biden off the screens, the ‘Trump COVID watch’ dominating every minute of every day. Then, 14 days later, Trump will emerge, 100% cured by hydroxychloroquine
Printscreen of the tweet below:
He gets to claim its no big deal and has been an overreaction
Prepare for the second debate
Can usher older people to get to the polls and not worry about it
Not saying I don’t believe he has it but there are definitely factors that benefit him.
What do you think about this?
