    Oct. 2) Watch live as Bloomberg Opinion columnist Jonathan Bernstein and Bloomberg News White House Correspondent Jordan Fabian join Bloomberg QuickTake’s Jennifer Zabasajja to discuss whether the public trust White House disclosures about Trump’s condition in light of his administration’s record. President Donald Trump has tested positive for the coronavirus, along with First Lady Melania Trump and senior staffer Hope Hicks. To begin with, we should all wish them the mildest of cases and the quickest of recoveries. I’ll say right away: Trump deserves credit for announcing the news himself after receiving the diagnosis, and it’s good that the White House put out a statement from the president’s doctor right away. That said, there are plenty of questions, and if the administration is smart it will answer as openly as possible — and at the very least, make sure to avoid anything that’s even a little bit inaccurate. It’s essential that the nation and the world can trust the White House right now, and given this administration’s previous record (including about medical disclosures) it’s starting from a deficit. The White House physician, Sean P. Conley, said that the Trumps are “both well at this time.” That’s not going to be enough.
