Trump was reportedly REALLY mad about someone else’s coronavirus diagnosis.
Thursday the White House confirmed a member of the military who worked closely with Trump was diagnosed with coronavirus.
Then Trump’s valet started showing coronavirus symptoms Wednesday morning, someone who is
“close to the president throughout the day on a consistent basis,”
When Trump found out Thursday that person had been in his vicinity, a person close to the White House told NBC News the he got,
“became ‘lava level mad’ at his staff and said he doesn’t feel they are doing all they can to protect him from the virus.”
Trump’s concern of personal infection contrasts with his lax attitude toward reopening businesses around the U.S. He’s acknowledged that reopening the economy would coincide with “more death,” but said the risks would be worth it.
Trump denied he had been close with the person who tested positive, saying Thursday
“I’ve had very little personal contact with this gentleman.”
Instead of his usual weekly tests for COVID-19, Trump said he’ll now be tested daily, as is VP Pence.
