Pressure for Trump to undergo testing for Covid-19 – a flu-like virus that is now ravaging Europe and America after the outbreak wound down in China – has been mounting since it became known that three Brazilian officials all tested positive for the virus. They were ambassador to the US, Nestor Forster; Senator Nelsinho Trad; and Fabio Wajngarten, the press secretary for Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.
All three were present at the meeting with Trump that took place over the past weekend in his Florida residence.
On Friday, Trump’s Brazilian counterpart, Bolsonaro, announced that he had also tested negative for the virus amid reports that a growing number of the Latin American country’s officials were not so lucky as to dodge the disease.Also on rt.com The Democrats are weaponizing Covid-19 against Trump to do what Russiagate & impeachment could not
The all-clear given to Trump by the White House medical staff has failed to persuade the #Resistance on Twitter, members of which wasted no time in casting doubt on the statement, with some going as far as to suggest that Trump had never taken the test.
