Trump shares message of hope amid media criticism
After testing positive for COVID-19 and spending a few days at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, President Trump returned to the White House with a message of hope.
“One thing that’s for certain: Don’t let it dominate you,” he said of COVID-19 in a Twitter video, where he appeared rested and fit, dressed in a blue suit. “Don’t be afraid of it. You’re going to beat it.”
“We have the best medical equipment, we have the best medicines, all developed recently, ” he continued.
Using the CDC estimates from late July, the survival rate from COVID-19 is 99.6 percent.
But the media is not taking kindly to Trump’s positive messaging. Take, for example, CNN host Chris Cuomo.
Cuomo was highly critical of Trump’s quarantine and mocked Trump’s return from Walter Reed Army Medical Center quarantine and treatment.
“There he is, hair blown majestically. Reshooting the scene for his own ad,” Cuomo fumed at the video of Trump returning to the White House. “What a bunch of bulls–t.”
To Cuomo, the coronavirus is something to fear. However, in April, Cuomo broke his own quarantine to take a family vacation after testing positive for the virus.
“Chris Cuomo is getting ripped for mocking President Trump’s return to the White House and reminded of his own video marking his return from coronavirus — even after he’d already publicly broken quarantine,” says the New York Post.
But Cuomo and CNN are not the only ones criticizing the president for his positive test results and return to normalcy.
“The president’s attitude alarmed many infectious disease experts, who said he should have stressed precautions Americans should take to try to avoid getting the coronavirus,” said CBS News, in a typical media missive against the president.
But actually, many Americans take heart from the President’s actions and his message.
“Thank you for leading with strength Mr. President,” said Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND).
“President @realDonaldTrump is a leader. America must face this and all challenges with courage and resolve, not fear. We’re proud to be AMERICANS!”
President Trump is eager to get continue working for the American people — something everyone should be proud of, regardless of personal politics. And if he can beat the virus, you can, too.
