President Trump Possibly Exposed to Coronavirus Via Multiple Congressmen

President Trump has long insisted that the deadly COVID-19 strain of coronavirus is “under control” here in the United States, but that hasn’t stopped the illness from getting within arms reach of the Commander in Chief.

Congressional Democrats have been lambasting the President as of late over his confidence when it comes to the spread of COVID-19 in the United States, attempting to blame some hypothetical future trouble with the sickness on Trump’s assuredness surrounding it.

That certainty could be tested soon, however, as Trump himself has now been in contact with several members of Congress who’ve themselves been exposed to the illness.

Two Republican congressmen say they were exposed to coronavirus — before having close contact with President Trump, including a handshake and a ride aboard Air Force One.

Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia, who shook Trump’s hand Friday at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, tweeted he was pictured at a conservative conference with a man who later tested positive for COVID-19.

Shortly after, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) announced that he also was exposed at the Conservative Political Action Conference, which ended Feb. 29.

Gaetz flew with Trump aboard Air Force One on Monday afternoon before revealing he interacted with the glad-handing CPAC guest.

Thus far, there has been no indication that President Trump has been exhibiting symptoms of the disease, nor has any statement been made in regard to having the Commander in Chief tested for possible exposure.

Donald Trump is a well-known germaphobe who washes his hands frequently and thoroughly, which is precisely what medical authorities believe is the key to undermining the virus’ spread.
