US President Donald Trump‘s covid-19 plague drove the world media crazy over the weekend. According to some of them, a key turnaround may have just taken place in the US presidential election, which has less than a month to go. Bloomberg, CNN, the New York Times, USA Today and the BBC point out that the public has very little information about Trump‘s health. The statesman has also been accused of irresponsible behavior and the future of his campaign is uncertain even now, although Trump himself actively reassures the public, primarily those who follow him on twitter, that everything is fine and will soon be released from the hospital.
It’s different with the expression of the people around Trump. American journalists describe the current White House communication as a mix of conflicting and limited reports. On Friday, the president was admitted to Walter Reed Military Hospital in Bethesda near Washington “with mild symptoms.” At the weekend, however, the US head was to be burdened. Even more confusing has been brought about by conflicting statements by political doctors.
Brian Garibaldi, a member of the nursing team, said on Sunday that “the president is feeling well and could be released from the hospital on Monday.” However, this still did not happen (at the time of closing this text).
Trump’s personal physician, Sean Conley, admitted at the same briefing as Garibaldi that the president had received supportive oxygen because his blood oxygen levels had dropped twice in the previous two days. Conley vehemently denied the use of supportive oxygen on Saturday. Trump was also given steroids based on the doctor’s statement. According to experts, they are used only in seriously ill patients.
Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is the 45th and current president of the United States. Before entering politics, he was a businessman and television personality.
Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Trump attended Fordham University for two years and received a bachelor’s degree in economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He became president of his father’s real estate business in 1971, renamed it The Trump Organization, and expanded its operations to building or renovating skyscrapers, hotels, casinos, and golf courses. Trump later started various side ventures, mostly by licensing his name. Trump and his businesses have been involved in more than 4,000 state and federal legal actions, including six bankruptcies. He owned the Miss Universe brand of beauty pageants from 1996 to 2015. He produced and hosted The Apprentice, a reality television series, from 2003 to 2015.
