TENACIOUS TRUMP: President to keep working despite COVID-19 diagnosis

Trump’s positive COVID-19 diagnosis was surely not the “October Surprise” anyone was expecting.

But despite growing concerns of a 14-day quarantine with only 32 days left until the election, the President is fired up and will continue working – from isolation – to defeat his opponent on November 3.

President Trump is feeling “energetic” and remains in high spirits after testing positive for the coronavirus overnight, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said Friday, according to the New York Post.

Meadows confirmed that the 74-year-old president was experiencing “mild symptoms,” but nothing he can’t handle.

“He continues to be not only in good spirits but very energetic,” he told reporters at the White House on Friday morning.

Meadows said doctors were monitoring the couple’s health but that Trump was “engaged” and would continue working as he quarantines at the White House.

“He is not only staying committed to working very hard on behalf of the American people, his first question to me this morning was ‘How’s the economy doing? How’re the stimulus talks going on Capitol Hill?” he said.

News of the president’s diagnosis came shortly after it was reported that White House counselor Hope Hicks, one of his closest advisers, had tested positive for the virus after traveling with him all week.

Others who came into contact with the president in recent days are in the process of testing.

Former vice president Joe Biden and his wife Jill both tested negative Friday morning after wishing the president and Melania a “swift recovery.”

Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, both tested negative as well.

With the election right around the corner, Trump’s positive test results come at a critical time.

But, knowing the president, not even the coronavirus will stop him from his campaign to victory.

    Agreed. Having Mr. Trump be forced to work — even for a few days — at a less hectic level may be one of the unexpected and saving graces of his becoming ill.
