As Trump Languishes At Walter Reed, Staffers Struggle To Maintain 'Strong Man' Image


Over the course of the novel coronavirus pandemic, US President Donald Trump has admitted to have knowingly downplayed the seriousness of the illness. So when Trump tested positive for COVID-19 early on Friday, experts say it may now be difficult for him and his administration to be trusted. Specifically, Business Insider reports it may be difficult for Trump to navigate a public image as a 'strong leader,' given his long track record of lies. USC communications professor Karen North says that as Trump's stance on the pandemic has been dismissive of the threat, he can't change tune quickly. He's out of commission on a topic that just went in opposition to his rhetoric. And so they now have a messaging problem, and they're going to have to figure out what their message is going to be.

    Although Americans are understandably very concerned about the health of US President Donald Trump, the public has no right to know. That's because his physicians are bound by HIPAA privacy laws, which allow them to only disclose to the public what the patient has permitted them to share. According to Business Insider, President Trump's doctor has declined to answer several major questions about the president's COVID-19 case. Dr. Sean Conley refused to say whether Trump had gotten supplemental oxygen. They later acknowledged he had on two occasions. Dr. Conley would also not say when Trump's last negative COVID-19 test was. There are HIPAA rules and regulations that restrict me in sharing certain things for his safety and his own health and reasons. Dr. Sean Conley
