It broke early this morning that our President and First Lady had tested positive for COVID. The news came in a Twitter message just before 1AM, after a suspenseful evening following reports that Mr. Trump’s close adviser, Hope Hicks, had tested positive.
Since then Mark Meadows, the White House chief of staff, has confirmed that Trump is showing mild cold-like symptoms so far, and Melania tweeted, “I have mild symptoms but overall feeling good.” VP Mike Pence tested negative.
Our prayers go out to the president and the first lady for a speedy and complete recovery. We also see how God, in His providence, could use this occurrence to help the country understand that even someone who’s in the most vulnerable category still has a very high chance of surviving this thing. Other leaders have had it so far: England’s PM, Boris Johnson, and Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil. Both have recovered.
Of course, Covid is highly contagious, but the good news is that the mortality rate is exceedingly low. As the nation is being brainwashed and traumatized by the media into making Covid and fear of the virus the number one political issue impacting the upcoming election, perhaps, and again in God’s providence, this will work to the advantage of Trump’s reelection bid.
God bless and protect Mr. Trump and the First Lady.
