The Castle Breached: President Trump tests positive for COVID-19

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Just days after his fiery debate with democratic presidential challenger Senator Joe Biden, the president has tested positive for a disease that has killed over 200,0000 people in the U.S. alone; and one million people worldwide: the Novel Coronavirus. 

Close Trump aide Hope Hicks tested positive for the disease only hours earlier on Thursday.

In an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Trump tacitly admitted he was in close contact with Hicks: “I just went out with the test, I’ll see, ‘cause you know, we spend a lot of time—and the first lady just wen out with a test also…so whether we are quarantine, or whether we have it, I don’t know.” 

Three hours after the interview, Trump tweeted that he and the first lady had tested positive for COVID-19.

In trying to theorize how Hicks contracted the virus, and even acknowledging how he might’ve come into contact with the disease, Trump thrice mentioned his interactions with military personnel: “You know, it’s very hard—when you’re with soldiers, when you’re with airmen, when you’re with the Marines, and the police officers—I’m with them so much. And when they come over to you, it’s very hard to say, ‘Stay back, stay back.’”

Critics were quick to jump on the president for inferring that Trump was assigning blame on the military. CNN anchor Brianna Keilar tweeted: “Yes, the president is pointing the finger at the military and law enforcement as the people from whom Hope Hicks likely contracted coronavirus.”

Critics also noted that Trump has had many outdoor campaign rallies in recent weeks with seemingly large swaths of gatherers were not wearing masks. Conversely, the Biden campaign has been muted with many rallies taking place virtually out of an abundance of caution. 

Senator Joe Biden and his wife have tested negative for Coronavirus. 

President Trump was quarantined with the first lady in the White House but was transported on Friday evening to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where he will be hospitalized for “the next few days” as an extra precaution. In his interview with Hannity, Trump showed a modicum of vulnerability when he admitted: “It’s a very, very tough disease.”

Now the president will face his own tough battle. Not the fight he expected 31 days from the biggest battle of his political career.
