Donald Trump tested positive for Covid-19 three days before his first debate against Joe Biden, Mark Meadows reveals in his new book. Via The Guardian:
Mark Meadows also writes that though he knew each candidate was required “to test negative for the virus within seventy two hours of the start time … Nothing was going to stop [Trump] from going out there”.
Trump, Meadows says in the book, returned a negative result from a different test shortly after the positive.
Nonetheless, the stunning revelation of an unreported positive test follows a year of speculation about whether Trump, then 74 years old, had the potentially deadly virus when he faced Biden, 77, in Cleveland on 29 September – and what danger that might have presented.
Just like I said, they knew Trump was positive for covid & he still held multiple events. He exposed dozens of people. Chris Christie was hospitalized. & this information was saved to cash out with a book instead of sharing real time. Ronna was sick 9/28.https://t.co/rs42I4HNAd pic.twitter.com/70EGtPF4T1

I don’t usually say, “I told you so.”
But after the first debate btwn Trump & Biden; I said, “Trump knew he had Covid, and he knew it was airborne & highly contagious.”
He wld not shut up (man).
He kept screaming.
He was literally hoping to get Joe sick & kill him.
