Melania Trump Implicated in Covering Up Her Husband’s Positive COVID19 Diagnosis

Melania Trump Implicated in Covering Up Her Husband’s Positive COVID19 Diagnosis

The ripple effect from the new bombshell scandal over the White House reportedly covering up Donald Trump’s positive COVID-19 test prior to a 2020 debate with Joe Biden has now reached Melania Trump.

Trump’s former Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, revealed the efforts to conceal Trump’s positive status, perhaps in an effort to distract from the news that he’s fully cooperating with the January 6th Select Committee. Like many others from the Trump administration, Meadows has written a book and is doling out these revelations piecemeal. On Thursday, a new excerpt claims that Meadows wasn’t alone in his effort to conceal Trump’s COVID19 status: he had help from Melania.

Trump was headed to a campaign rally in Pennsylvania, on September 26, 2020, when he was informed that he had tested positive for the coronavirus, according to Meadows. This was three days before he was scheduled to debate Joe Biden. The expectations of the debate commission and baseline decency dictated that Trump make the information public immediately, even at the cost of postponing the debate. But no: “Nothing was going to stop [Trump] from going out there,” Meadows writes in his new memoir “The Chief’s Chief.” When told that he had tested positive, Trump—not unreasonably—reacted with profanity, though Meadows, a religious man, renders his words in sanitizing rhyme: “Oh spit, you’ve gotta be trucking lidding me.” Not long after, Trump took another test; this one was negative. Trump, of course, decided to believe the second test and covered up the first.

The Trump family, which included Melania as well as Donald Trump, Jr. and Eric Trump, was widely criticized for all sitting maskless at the September 29th Presidential debate, refusing a direct request to mask up from a doctor with the Cleveland Clinic, which helped organize the debate. That doctor even offered them masks, and they declined.”

“The Trump family has long treated rules and laws as nuisances that are only for the little people. And the news that Donald Trump tested positive for covid-19 before the first 2020 presidential debate shows that this tendency may be even more depraved and malevolent than you thought,” Greg Sargent writes in The Washington Post. “It turns out that this revelation, which comes in a new book by former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, also implicates members of Trump’s family, including Melania Trump and Donald Trump Jr.”
