I’m going to be watching him for symptoms.
Because it’s not like if he had it, that would be announced.
President Donald Trump has tested negative for the coronavirus, according to a statement from the White House.
Trump took the test on Friday, he said during a Saturday news conference, after coming into recent contact with two individuals who have tested positive for the virus.
“Last night after an in-depth discussion with the President regarding COVID-19 testing, he elected to proceed,” according to the statement about the results released by press secretary Stephanie Grisham with Trump’s permission. “One week after having dinner with the Brazilian delegation in Mar-a-Lago, the President remains symptom-free. I have been in daily contact with the CDC and White House Coronavirus Task Force, and we are encouraging the implementation of all their best practices for exposure reduction and transmission mitigation.”
Trump said Saturday he had also had his temperature taken Saturday before entering the White House briefing room. The President told reporters that his temperature was normal.
The whole concept of him announcing a test is really dumb.
I guess it’s necessary.
But there is no one anywhere who thinks he would give the real results.
You couldn’t even take issue with him announcing negative if he tested positive, because clearly, it would cause a panic if he announced that he was positive.
So, I still say the chances of him having it are about 50/50, and if he has it, the chances of him dying are about 50/50.
Do the math.
