Bloomberg: Trump's Aides Feared He Had Coronavirus On Wednesday
Bloomberg is reporting that some of President Donald Trump's aides feared he had COVID-19 on Wednesday.
Some of Trump’s closest aides said they sensed on Wednesday that Trump was feeling poorly but they chalked it up to fatigue from an intense campaign schedule. The president seemed exhausted, one person familiar with the situation said.
If Trump were to become incapacitated, the 25th Amendment that allows for the vice president to take over would apply.
Judd Deere, a White House spokesman, said contact tracing for Trump and First Lady Melania Trump was being carried out and “the appropriate notifications and recommendations will be made.” Contact tracing for Hicks, he added, was already complete.
