Voters react to Trump virus test results


Washington, D.C. residents and visitors reacted to the stunning news Friday that President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump have both tested positive to the coronavirus.
The White House said that President Donald Trump was suffering “mild symptoms” of COVID-19, making the announcement after he returned from an evening fundraiser without telling the crowd he had been exposed to an aide with the disease that has killed a million people worldwide.
The announcement that the president of the United States and first lady Melania Trump had tested positive, tweeted by Trump shortly after midnight, plunged the country deeper into uncertainty just a month before the presidential election.
However, White House aides said he was in good spirits and working in quarantine in the family quarters.
Trump has spent much of the year downplaying the threat of a virus that has killed more than 205,000 Americans.
His diagnosis was sure to have a destabilizing effect in Washington and around the world, raising questions about how far the virus has spread through the highest levels of the U.S. government.
Hours before Trump announced he had contracted the virus, the White House said a top aide who had traveled with him during the week had tested positive.

  1. Imagine how low the U.S. COVID-19 Death Rate would be if Democrat Governors did not mandate COVD-19 Positive patients into Nursing Homes. Per the NY Times article on 9-16, 77,000 people died in Nursing Homes. That number would likely exceed 100,000 (of our 213,000 total U.S. Deaths) if New York reported Nursing Home Deaths accurately. NY plays a game where they transport dying Nursing Home patients to the hospital and do not count their deaths as Nursing Home deaths. New York attributes 6,600 of their near 40,000 deaths to Nursing Homes but that number is likely closer to 30,000 bringing the "real" U.S. Nursing Home death rate to well over 100,000. Governors with similar mandates (NJ, PA, MN to name a few) attributed 70% of their COVID-19 Deaths to Nursing Homes. What was New York's rate? 20%. Ridiculous. Why do I make this point? If Democrat Governors like Cuomo did not mandate COVID-19 Positive patients go into nursing homes, our overall U.S. Deathrate would likely be slashed in half ensuring the world's lowest deathrate further highlighting the success of this President. I join Dr. Fauci and praise Trump for his quick action to ban travel from China despite getting harsh criticism from Biden, Pelosi and Schumer which according to Dr. Fauci saved tens of thousands of American lives. If Biden were President, those people Dr. Fauci is referring to would have all died because Biden said Trump's China travel ban was "Xenophobic". It is sickening to see the very people like Cuomo, whose ridiculous nursing home mandates killed so many and Biden whose inaction would have cost tens of thousands of more lives, point at the President as the problem and mainstream media are all too happy to perpetuate this misleading narrative.
