Bloomberg QuickTake: Now published this video item, entitled “Trump Tests Positive for Covid-19” – below is their description.
What does that mean for the country, the 2020 elections and more? Bloomberg’s Derek Wallbank and QuickTake’s Kurumi Mori discuss. President Donald Trump announced early Friday that he and First Lady Melania Trump had tested positive for Covid-19, shortly after one of his closest aides, Hope Hicks, had fallen ill with the coronavirus. “Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!” the president said on Twitter. Trump’s announcement comes with barely one month left until the U.S. presidential election — a contest against Democrat Joe Biden that has focused heavily on Trump’s handling of the coronavirus, which Biden and others have criticized as slow off the mark and ineffective. In a memo released early Friday morning, Trump’s physician said that the president and first lady plan to remain at the White House “during their convalescence” and that the medical unit would “maintain a vigilant watch.” “Rest assured I expect the president to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering, and I will keep you updated on any future developments,” White House physician Scott Conley said.
