Now COVID-19 Positive, Trump's Pitch That Biden Is Old, Unwell Evaporates

Description

The bombshell news of US President Donald Trump's coronavirus diagnosis has sent a chill down the spines of his campaign aides. According to Business Insider, they fear that his diagnosis could harm his reelection chances. Trump spent months downplaying the disease and ignoring CDC guidelines. GOP strategists worry voters will hold it against him. His campaign message that Democratic opponent Joe Biden was old and unable to lead will be undermined if Trump is unwell and Biden remains healthy. Trump was already behind in the polls and had been trying to move the conversation away from the US handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

Others may also fail to attend but none so far have been confirmed outside of these three. Joe Biden is set to take office tomorrow and become the 46th President of the United States.
