And again someone in Trump’s environment is caught: Donald Jr., the eldest son of the US President, is infected with Corona. The 42-year-old is in quarantine, but shows no symptoms. His father apparently reacts gruffly to questions about the condition of his filius.
The eldest son of US President Donald Trump has been infected with the corona virus. Donald Trump Jr. tested positive for the pathogen earlier this week, his spokesman said. As soon as the 42-year-old received the test result, he went into quarantine. The president’s son did not have any Covid 19 symptoms, stressed his spokesman.
Donald Trump Jr. had, among other things, actively participated in his father’s fight for a second term with sharply right-wing, provocative messages in online networks. After Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden won the November 3rd election, Trump Jr. made a name for himself with a tweet saying his father should go to “all-out war” in the fight against alleged electoral fraud.
At the beginning of October, President Donald Trump was found to be infected with the corona virus. The President was treated briefly in hospital for this. After Trump’s infection, a few other infections were reported from his environment, including from Minister for Construction Ben Carson, Presidential Advisor David Bossie and the White House Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows.
USA already complain about 250,000 corona deaths
However, Trump repeatedly downplays the extent of the pandemic. After his recovery, he called on the population to “not be afraid” of Corona and not to let the virus “dominate” them. When asked about the condition of his son, he responded with a somewhat gruff tweet: “My son Donald is doing very well, thank you very much,” he wrote – apparently another attempt to portray the virus as less dangerous.
The US is the hardest hit country in the world by the pandemic. More than 253,000 people in the United States have died as a result of a corona infection. The number of confirmed cases of infection is also the highest in the world at more than 11.8 million.
