Due to the positive COVID test of himself and Melania, Donald Trump has canceled much of his schedule.
Despite being in the homestretch of the 2020 election, the president and first lady will be in quarantine for two weeks.
He hasn’t even made time yet to address the American people, but he did leave one thing on his calendar:
President Trump cleared his Friday schedule after he and first lady Melania Trump confirmed they had tested positive for the coronavirus in the early morning hours — except for a phone call on virus aid for vulnerable seniors, multiple reports said…
He said he expected the president to “continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering.”
Given Trump and Melania’s overall good health, we can hope and pray they recover quickly.
However, they are staying at home, for the time being, to prevent spreading the virus to others.
But even as the president cancels many of his in-person events, he did not cancel a call about aid for vulnerable seniors.
What we’ve learned about COVID is that it hurts older Americans the most. People aged 75 and over need to be protected at all costs.
Those with pre-existing conditions are especially in jeopardy.
As states recovered from lockdowns, they continued to practice measures to keep senior Americans safe.
That includes protecting nursing homes and hospitals.
It appears that, despite Trump’s recent diagnosis, he is still determined to put Americans first.
According to reports, the call was about providing additional aid for those who would be hit hard by the virus.
The president also said he would continue to serve the country, even in quarantine.
- President Trump canceled his campaign appearances while in quarantine.
- He did not cancel a call for virus aid for vulnerable seniors.
- The president will continue to work from the White House.
