Trumps got Covid-19 !!!
Is he getting his excuses in early for when he looses the election?
Is he going to try his quack remedies?
Has god come out of furlough?

Hope Hicks one of his inner inner circle has got it too! Press man interviewed says the press on Air Force one are checked daily and before each flight. White House staff no so. All press wear masks White House staff not so !!

Heís got a 5* excuse now. He only lost because he got corona virus/ he said heíd got corona virus 🦠 . I doubt heís really got it he just building an excuse !!
Be lucky

Looks like two E-6Bs went up not long before the announcement on both coasts.

I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't even have it.
Ten days isolation the month before the election is better than 14?!

This seems to be provoking more interest in the UK than it has in the US.

You guys do know that you’re not actually American, right ?

Despite his terrible physical state, he has an excellent chance of avoiding serious consequences because he will have access to some very effective therapies. I am aware of one under development but not generally available that looks extremely effective and, because of its nature, will be very low risk. I predict that he is on it now. So the bugger could make a miraculous recovery that would convince the evangelical right that he is chosen by god.

You know you’re posting in the Australian, NZ and Pacific forum which is not actually the UK, right?

All that Schadenfreude in the press and on socmeds ... chances are that it will significantly backfire. If indeed he is amongst the larger crowd who does not experience a grave course of disease, he will be able to downplay the epidemic more than ever!

That wonít be known about for 2-3 weeks. A large proportion of the early voting will be completed by then.

For the next two weeks this news puts the COVID pandemic front and centre back in everyoneís minds and reminds everyone it is a deadly disease. Trump was using rhetoric indicating he thought the pandemic situation was improving and close to being over, so this puts it back as headline news and reminds everyone of his poor handling of it. The COVID situation and resultant poor economy was one of his many weak points, he would rather the talk pivot back to things where he thinks he has an advantage like law and order, which heís probably lost after he refused to condemn violent far right mobs.

And to pivot this thread back tho this forum (Australian Aviation), maybe this prominent news being discussed all the way down here in Australia will remind Australians that the pandemic is still raging on around the world, that strict measures are needed to control it, itís better to get cases as close to zero as possible before opening up and being open with a virus spreading doesnít mean jobs for all. Just today American and United airlines announced a combined 32,000 layoffs, and Expressjet airlines ceased operations. In a nation where internal borders havenít been closed but the pandemic has been raging.
