Americans were stunned when Donald Trump announced that he and First Lady Melania Trump both had coronavirus.
Of course, the news immediately caused rampant speculation throughout the country and the media as to whether Trump could continue his duties as President.
And now Trump’s top doctor just released the shocking truth about the fate of the President.
It was reported that Trump was experiencing mild symptoms of the virus by Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.
Many Americans were concerned as to whether Trump can perform his duties as Commander-in-Chief following his diagnosis.
White House physician, U.S. Navy Commander Sean Conley, released a statement to put the public’s mind at ease.
“Rest assured I expect the President to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering, and I will keep you updated on any future developments,” Conley’s statement reads.
Meanwhile, the Fake News Media has been fantasizing about Trump’s downfall at the hands of the virus.
Democrat activists Maggie Haberman and Peter Baker expressed their excitement about the possibility in The New York Times.
“If he becomes sick, it could raise the questions about whether he should remain on the ballot at all,” Baker and Haberman wrote.
The Trump campaign swiftly dashed any hopes Democrats had of the President dropping from the race with a statement that quickly made the rounds of Twitter.

Despite the doom and gloom from the press, Trump himself added Monday that he was being discharged from Walter Reed and feeling better than he did 20 years ago.
I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!
