Just six days into his coronavirus diagnosis and three days into his admission to a hospital, Trump’s return to the White House, breaking healthcare protocol, has raised eyebrows.
Disregarding the logic of quarantine, President Donald Trump drove around the hospital waving at his supporters. He sat in the backseat of an SUV, accompanied by two Secret Service agents sitting in front, conveniently exposing them to the virus.
We have never been here before. The President and the First lady have contracted Covid-19. In the best case scenario he is asymptomatic, is able to continue with his duties, and after a two week quarantine returns to the presidential campaign. In other, far worse scenarios, a deterioration in Trump’s condition could set in motion a political drama without precedent, testing the Constitution with the first ever invoking of the 25th Amendment.
Trump sounded fine in the video. But his physician Dean Colney has since then admitted that the President’s condition is worse than earlier conveyed.
Stock Markets across US, Europe and Asia fell after the Trump was diagnosed with coronavirus. However, investors should not panic but learn from the virus bouts of UK’s Boris Johnson and Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro.
