Donald Trump personally exposed hundreds of people to COVID when he refused to take precautions after testing positive.
The Washington Post drew up an extensive timeline of Trump’s moves after testing positive, reporting:
In fact, Trump was hospitalized with Walter Reed about a week later. From the day he tested positive until he was hospitalized, Trump came into contact with more than 500 people, either near him or at crowded events, with no rally-goers, according to a Washington Post analysis of the president’s interactions during this period.
Trump shows why he can never return to power in a single week
Trump’s behavior was selfish, reckless, and could have killed people, or maybe even did. The idea that a president could test positive for a deadly contagious virus and lie to the American people is in itself disqualifying, but this president demonstrated a disregard for human life that is criminal by lying to those he personally exposed to COVID .
The failed former president is concerned about this issue because Chris Christie wrote that Trump called him to ask if Christie would tell people that Trump gave him COVID.
Trump’s willful neglect of the pandemic resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths, but it wasn’t all bad policy.
Donald Trump’s sociopathic behavior showed a disregard for his own life and those who were closest to him.
He must never hold a position of power again.
