The irony of the statement that is to follow is the perfect indication of the kind of year this has been. United States (US) President Donald Trump has tested positive for the coronavirus (Covid-19).
Karmic energy hits Donald Trump where it hurts
Or, rather, the ‘China’ virus, as he would mock it. Since the start of the Covid-19 outbreak earlier this year, Trump has scoffed at the global pandemic that has killed more than one million patients worldwide.
Fighting off medical experts like Dr. Anthony Fauci and others, Trump seemed almost immune to contracting the virus. He was warned on multiple occasions that the unseen enemy was nothing close to what the US, with all of its military might, has ever encountered.
Yet, the Republican president charged ahead, failing to implore his people about the importance of wearing a face mask or maintaining social distancing.
On Tuesday, the president held the first debate with his opponent, Democrat leader Joe Biden. As reported by BBC, Trump clowned Biden for his insistence on wearing a face mask, among other derogatory and vile things he said.
The thing about karmic energy is, what goes around must come around. On Friday, the president took to his Twitter account to reveal that he and his First Lady, Melania Trump, have tested positive for Covid-19.
Is Trump a high-risk Covid-19 patient?
It is widely known that elderly people and those living with comorbidities are at a higher risk of being killed by the respiratory virus. President Trump is 74 years old and at this time, it is not known if he has any pre-existing conditions that could put him in grave danger.
Sean Conley, the president’s physician confirmed that Trump and his wife have been placed in quarantine and are receiving medical treatment.
“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 noted in a statement.
The news broke out on social media and immediately shot to the top of global trending topics. These are just some of the reactions we picked out:
