President Trump has been hounded by Democrats and the media to take a test to see if he has the Coronavirus. There is concern because he had dinner with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and his press secretary. President Bolsonaro said he has ‘tested negative for the virus but his press secretary tested positive. Also, people in President Trump’s inner circle, including his daughter Ivanka, have been in contact with the Australian Minister for Home Affairs, Peter Dutton, who has tested positive for the virus. According to Politico.com,
“Last week Ivanka, Attorney General William Barr and Trump aides including Kellyanne Conway met with Dutton in Washington for a meeting about online child exploitation. In a statement released on Friday on Twitter, Dutton said he “woke up with a temperature and sore throat” and confirmed he has the coronavirus.
“I immediately contacted the Queensland Department of Health and was subsequently tested for COVID-19. I was advised by Queensland Health this afternoon that the test had returned positive,” Dutton said in a statement.
“In a photo posted on Twitter by the Australian Embassy in the U.S., Dutton is seen standing next to Ivanka and the other officials.
“Barr also stayed at home on Friday, according to Department of Justice spokesperson Kerri Kupec, who said he is “feeling great and not showing any symptoms” and has consulted with the CDC.”
It has been reported that the President does not have the virus and this is good news for us and the country. Via CNBC.com,
“According to the note from the White House physician, “last night after an in-depth discussion with the President regarding COVID-19 testing, he elected to proceed.”
“This evening,” the White House physician said, “I received confirmation that the test is negative.”
“The White House physician added that he has been in “daily contact” with the Center for Disease Control and White House Coronavirus Task Force.”
