Did Trump Intentionally Try To Infect Biden With COVID?
According to Trump’s former chief of staff Mark Meadows’ new book, the former President tested positive for COVID days before the first presidential debate, which means that he was well aware of his diagnosis before meeting with Biden on that debate stage. This raises the question of whether Trump was intentionally trying to get Biden infected, as vaccines were not available at that time. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

Donald Trump’s former chief of staff. Mark Meadows has a new book coming out next week called the chiefs chief. And of course, he’s trying to do what he can and the drama book sales. You’ve got to outlets out there, printing excerpts of it, printing, you know, some pretty salacious claims from the book. And one of the claims making the rounds this week is that Donald Trump had actually been diagnosed with COVID-19 days before that first presidential debate with Joe Biden had been diagnosed with COVID days before meeting with gold star families. You know, the families who had lost family members overseas in military conflict. So these people were already suffering. These people had already experienced tremendous losses and he knowingly exposed them to COVID. He knowingly willfully maybe even intentionally exposed Joe Biden to COVID.
Now meadow says that the first, uh, net, uh, positive test, excuse me, that he received, um, was September 29th. No, I’m sorry. That was the day of the debate. He had received the positive diagnosis, um, about three days prior to that. But of course, then he took another test. No, that test was negative. So they decided to run with the negative test instead of the positive test. And of course in that three-day span, you had the Amy Coney Barrett, you know, a little celebration in the rose garden that later did become a super spreader event, met with the gold star families and then debate a Joe Biden. And then little time after that is when they came out and said, oh no, he’s got a positive COVID test. We’re taking them to Walter Reed hospital. We’re totally going to be on top of this. And no, nobody else has a reason to worry.
They lied to us as they always did, by the way. That’s not the shocking part. The shocking part is that he willfully expose these individuals in multiple different occasions to COVID 19. And you have to wonder at this point, was that intentional? Obviously he has nothing to gain from giving Amy Coney Barrett COVID or giving gold star families COVID, but he sure would have had a lot to gain from giving Joe Biden COVID and I can’t help, but wonder and question whether or not that was intentional, Joe, Biden’s three years older than Donald Trump and admittedly, he looks to be in better shape. Obviously he does not have the obesity problem that Donald Trump has not an attack on him. That’s just the way it is. I know I’m there too. It’s okay. But 77 years old, this was prior to vaccines coming out COVID could have killed him, could have killed either one of them. So that is a huge, huge issue. And I think we deserve more answers to this than just a couple of paragraphs in a book by Mark Meadows. Cause Mark Meadows is not out there basically trying to trash Donald Trump. He still likes him. He is trying to sell books though. So you gotta, you gotta make claims like this, but I’m willing to bet. Most of the book is very positive about Donald Trump.
So did he knowingly and willfully and intentionally expose Joe Biden to COVID 19. He knew they knew the white house knew that he had that positive test and it was far more likely for the positive test to be correct than it was for the negative test to be correct. It’s easier to get a false negative than a false positive is what I’m saying. And I don’t know, I want answers to this. I want more than what is in this book. I want to know how many of the people that were around Donald Trump in those days later tested positive for COVID-19. I want to know how many people he got sick. I want to know what happened to them after they got sick. I want to know that these people are okay now in that the former president of the United States, the current president at the time, didn’t kill people by giving them COVID-19. I want more answers. And I think the entire public wants more answers to.
