President Trump’s physician, Dr. Sean Conley, announced the incredible news on Tuesday afternoon that the president “reports no symptoms” of the Chinese Virus after being discharged from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Monday evening.
The excellent news comes with just under a month until what is shaping up to be perhaps the most important presidential election in U.S. history.
“This morning the President’s team of physicians met with him in the Residence. He had a restful first night at home, and today he reports no symptoms,” Conley wrote in a memo to White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who herself has tested positive for the coronavirus.
“Vital signs and physical exam remain stable, with an ambulatory oxygen saturation level of 95-97%. Overall he continues to do extremely well, I will provide updates as we know more.”
The timely medical prognoses also increases the odds that President Trump will debate Democratic nominee Joe Biden in the second presidential debate scheduled for October 15 in Miami, FL.
Joe Biden on the other hand, has been attempting to use the president’s sickness as an excuse to back out of the debate after the president completely dominated him in the first.
Tuesday evening, Joe Biden admitted to reporters that he thinks “we shouldn’t have a debate.”
“Well, I think if he still has COVID, we shouldn’t have a debate,” Biden said.
“I think we were gonna have to follow very strict guidelines. Too many people have been infected. It’s a very serious problem, so I will be guided by the guidelines.”
Biden was tested for coronavirus Tuesday – for at least the fourth time in the past couple of days – and his campaign said the former vice president had once again tested negative for the Chinese Virus.
Biden’s comments come one day after he told reporters that he’d listen to what the experts say to determine whether it’s safe for him to face off next week in Miami against the president in the second of three scheduled debates with Trump.
“I’ll do whatever the experts say is appropriate for me to do,” Biden told reporters as he boarded a flight Monday to campaign in the battleground state of Florida. “Listen to the science. If scientists say that it’s safe…then I think that’s fine.”
Meanwhile, more great news for the Trump campaign, White House Physician Jesse Schonau said that Vice President Pence continues to test negative for the virus and “does not need to quarantine.”
Pence is set to face off against Joe Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris On October 7 in the only vice-presidential debate scheduled for this election.
The letter from Pence’s physician said that Pence “has continued to have daily COVID-19 antigen tests and intermittent PCR tests, which have all resulted as negative.”
It continued: “Pence is not a close contact with any individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19, including President Donald J. Trump and senior members of the White House administration … Pence is encouraged to go about his normal activities and does not need to quarantine.”
Nevertheless, the VP debate will employ new coronavirus precautions. Pence and Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris will be 12 feet apart — compared to the 7 feet that separated Trump and Biden at their debate.
Moderator Susan Page of USA Today will be 12 feet away from the candidates. The guests in the debate hall will be required to wear masks and be limited. They will also have to present negative coronavirus tests.
