American voters were riled up last week as the first round of presidential debates has begun. The battle between the Democrat and Republican bets, Joe Biden and the incumbent president of the United States of America, Donald Trump, started with tirades and insults hurled against each other on national television. Some viewers were entertained, like they were watching some kind of reality TV show, while others were disappointed to witness such acts from presidentiables.
The day after the heated debate, another shocking report rattled the nation, most especially Trump’s supporters, as the president confirmed through his official Twitter account that he and his first lady, Melania Trump, tested positive for the dreaded novel coronavirus. His COVID-19 diagnosis could not come any worse for Trump, who will need all the energy and strength to continue his campaign.
How Could Trump’s COVID-19 Battle Affect His Chances Of Winning The Elections?
Trump has always presented himself in front of the American people as a formidable man, a person of power and influence. He wouldn’t let any small things affect his image, especially if those would make him look weak. In the case of his COVID-19 diagnosis, Trump is now seen as a victim of a horrifying plague that has already swept his country and the entire world. As we all know, his stance against the COVID-19 pandemic has been quite puzzling, as his government doing the necessary steps to contain the disease while telling the people that they should not let the virus affect their lives.
Even though some people don’t think that the election season is the time to talk about the COVID-19 pandemic, we should reflect on how the Trump administration handled this situation. Not to talk political, but Trump catching the COVID-19 is like a paradox of what he has been trying to show the United States about this plague. From the very start, Trump wanted to think that this disease is no stronger than a regular, seasonal flu, and that people could easily endure this.
Of course, the American people still wishes the best of health for the current POTUS, but this turn of events is a wake-up call for everyone to take the necessary precautions against COVID-19.
