Trump returns to Rose Garden to claim ‘China will own US’ if he’s not re-elected

Posted on

Donald Trump returned to the White House Garden following his hospitalisation with the coronavirus to declare that if he loses his re-election in 20 days, “China will own the United States.”

He delivered a virtual address on Wednesday after hosting a likely “super-spreader” ceremony at the Rose Garden to announce his Supreme Court nominee last month.

In his remarks, the president attacked his Democratic opponent Joe Biden, who the president claimed will oversee economic devastation and “punish” workers, as millions of Americans continue to file for unemployment benefits eight months into a pandemic that has killed more than 200,000 Americans and shuttered businesses in the economic fallout.

The president – speaking with a raspy voice following his illness and return to campaign rallies – told members of the Economic Clubs of New York, Florida, Washington DC, Chicago, Pittsburgh and Sheboygan that the election is a “simple” choice between “historic prosperity”

Trump returned to the Oval Office Wednesday for the first time since getting back to the White House Monday evening after his hospitalization at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. He said on Thursday in his first live interview since returning home that his drugs have been dialed down, and that he’s taking a steroid that isn’t “heavy.”

The Rose Garden ceremony for Amy Coney Barrett was supposed to define the rest of the campaign. It did. Just not how Trump hoped

Posted on

A little over a week ago, Republicans gathered at the White House Rose Garden as President Trump officially nominated Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.

The moment gave Republicans momentum and potentially a much-needed campaign reset. Instead of Americans thinking about how badly Trump had handled the coronavirus crisis, which polls show they believe, maybe a rushed, even high-drama fight over a court nomination would change the subject.

Trump, in particular, may have felt that the late Saturday afternoon event in the Rose Garden would define the last month of the campaign.

It has, just not in the way that he hoped.

Beginning with his announcement early Friday morning that he had tested positive for the coronavirus along with his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, the Barrett nomination has been back-burner news.

Well, except for this part: a lot of people who were at the Rose Garden nomination ceremony

  • An event held in the Rose Garden may have been responsible for infecting many high-profile politicians with coronavirus.

White House is not contact tracing Rose Garden event and rejected CDC offer to track down those exposed to Trump: Reports

Posted on

As President Trump battles COVID-19, some said the White House is not doing enough to trace those who might have come in contact with him or been otherwise exposed to the virus at the White House.

At least eight people might have been infected at a Sept. 26 Rose Garden event to celebrate the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Despite this, the president’s team decided not to trace the contacts of the staff members and guests who attended the event, the New York Times reported on Monday, citing the account of a senior White House official.

Instead, reports indicated the White House has chosen only to follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, which specify that contact tracing efforts should be pursued for those who had “close contact” to someone with COVID-19 within two days of their diagnosis.

White House Is Not Contact Tracing ‘Super-Spreader’ Trump Rose Garden Event

Posted on

“The list is names and email addresses. For robust contact tracing you need city and state,” one official said. “We basically say as much — we want and need more information.”

The officials said the state contacted the White House early Friday after learning of the president’s diagnosis and was told in a “blanket statement” that the “White House Medical Unit is doing all the contact tracing.”

“That doesn’t really satisfy us — particularly with the New Jerseyans,” the official said.

Mr. Deere, the White House spokesman, said: “A full contact tracing, consistent with C.D.C. guidelines, was completed for the Bedminster, N.J. trip. The President did not have any interactions with Bedminster staff or guests that would be considered to be ‘close’ based on CDC guidelines (more than 15 minutes and within 6 feet).”

He added, “All White House staff considered to be in close contact during this trip have

Trump Tempted Fate Long Before Rose Garden Coronavirus Cluster

Posted on

(Bloomberg) —

Ever since March, when much of the country went into lockdown to contain the coronavirus, Donald Trump has tempted fate — ignoring his own administration’s advice on avoiding the virus, yet managing to avoid it all the same.

There was a June rally inside a Tulsa arena, and a convention speech to 2,500 people on the South Lawn of the White House in August. Then came de facto political rallies, which gave way to full outdoor rallies, which gave way to indoor ones. All gathered Trump supporters, largely maskless, tightly packed together, and yet the president — a habitual germophobe even before the pandemic — always emerged unscathed.

But they all paled next to last weekend’s celebratory introduction of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, where roughly 150 guests sat shoulder-to-shoulder in the White House Rose Garden. Senators and other Republican luminaries worked the crowd, shaking hands,

Former counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway is one of many people now known to have contracted COVID-19 who were in attendance at what is being referred to by some media as Donald Trump’s “super spreader” Rose Garden event.

Her husband, extremely vocal Trump critic George Conway, expressed his outrage in a Twitter thread that needed only a few words and photos of the event to make an impact.

It is quite the record of error, in just four short tweets.

Since news broke on Friday that President Trump and his first lady Melania have tested positive for COVID-19, the situation with the president seems to have rapidly developed—or at least the administration’s public acknowledgment of the reality of coronavirus.

On Friday night, the White House announced that Trump has been hospitalized at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for treatment of his coronavirus symptoms, which include fatigue, reports The Washington Post.

Before heading off to Walter Reed, Trump posted a short video on Twitter in which he says he “thinks he’s doing very well.” Meanwhile, Trump’s doctor at the White House revealed that he started the president on a suite of drugs aimed at treating the deadly coronavirus.

Trump, who is 74, began taking a cocktail of drugs as a “precautionary measure,” according to doctor Sean Conley, who provided
