Report: Trump Had Tested Positive For COVID Prior His First Debate With Joe Biden, Took Part in it Anyway

In the months leading up to last year’s election, COVID-19 was surging in the United States. Donald Trump ignored all protocols, recklessly holding rallies, often appearing maskless.

So it was no surprise when Trump himself contracted the virus. And he got really sick, eventually ending up in the hospital. We now know that White House doctors had lied about how sick he really was.

And according to Mark Meadows, Trump had also lied about when he contracted the virus, risking the lives of others. In his new book, the former White House Chief of Staff reveals that Trump has tested positive with COVID prior to his first debate with Joe Biden.

The Guardian’s Martin Pengelly reports:

“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.”

Both candidates were expected to take a COVID test prior to the event. Trump, conveniently, arrived to the debate late and was unable to take the test. The former president was then allowed on the stage as Fox had followed the honor system. Of course, trusting Trump with the honor system was a clear mistake.
