Trump staffers test positive for Covid-19 after Tulsa rally

Trump staffers test positive for Covid-19 after Tulsa rally 1


Two staffers who attended President Donald Trump's rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Saturday tested positive for coronavirus, Trump's campaign said.
"After another round of testing for campaign staff in Tulsa, two additional members of the advance team tested positive for the coronavirus. These staff members attended the rally but were wearing masks during the entire event. Upon the positive tests, the campaign immediately activated established quarantine and contact tracing protocols," Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told CNN in a statement.
The two positive tests, first reported by CNBC, bring the total number of Trump advance team staffers in Tulsa who tested positive for coronavirus to eight.
Hours before Trump's Saturday rally, the campaign said that six staffers working on the rally tested positive for coronavirus.
Murtaugh said in a statement then that "per safety protocols, campaign staff are tested for COVID-19 before events. Six members of the advance team tested positive out of hundreds of tests performed, and quarantine procedures were immediately implemented."
"No COVID-positive staffers or anyone in immediate contact will be at today's rally or near attendees and elected officials," he said.

    So, just don’t test staffers and they won’t get it….

  2. How can a President protect the nation from the coronavirus when he can’t even protect his own staff?

      @Ray Kehr if would be my fault if I told my children the virus was a hoax

    • @R M Ahh, what month did he do that???
      Was it before or after December 2019??
      And the bulk of the cases came in through New York which does not have direct flights from Chyna.

      @Walter Lichtenberg i know. i regret that the democrats fought adamantly when trump tried so valiantly to ban foreigners. they just kept calling him a racist and demanding open borders…. remember? gee, it seems like yesterday. surely you recall

    • “under attack” with cnn that would mean he takes multiple bunker trips a day

      I’m literally laughing at the level of defensiveness my simple comment caused. I don’t expect any of you to actually acknowledge that protest induced violence was occurring in close proximity to the White House on that same day. Especially seeing as how you all support this sad biased news source to begin with. CNN has been known to lie, and manipulate the truth to their advantage. But go ahead and continue being sheep who believe everything the mainstream news tells you. 🙂

    • @Katrina Hogue But Trump said he was just inspecting the bunker. If he hadn’t lied about it, no one would have cared.

      @David Campbell You have hands look it up yourself. I’m not your servant. Also revisit that part in American History which clearly states that your precious Democratic Party started the Confederacy as a “pro-slave” party. Clearly you need a brush up because you are on the wrong side of history yet again. Your welcome. 🙂

    • Katrina Hogue red about how the parties switched. The democrats of today aren’t the one protecting the traitorous confederate flag claiming it’s their heritage

  6. At this moment in time; I’m in my room just shaking my head in disbelief that In in 2020, people are just being stupid and ignorant because they think COVID is a conspiracy and our president isn’t taking this seriously

      Covid 19 isn’t as bad as the media makes it out to be. Do you see people dying left and right no. Do you see any mass graves no. The majority of the people who are dying from covid-19 is old people. I haven’t had a mask on all week and I’m fine. I work at a grocery store and none of the employees have gotten sick from covid-19.

    • Many of his supporters say that they don’t believe in covid, in reality they do, but are too proud to admit it.

      @Mr. Pandering It takes 2 weeks for symptoms to show if I’m not mistaken.

      @Akhil Kanagala I seriously doubt that he has only been working at a grocery store for 2 weeks. If he has gotten it, he would have known by now.

      it couldnt happen to a nicer family.

  7. Did you not hear what the president said?

    “Slow the testing down please….so my ‘Brian’ can catch-up”.

    Think about it, Donald Trump is a text book case of having a silver spoon , Everything he has he was given , He’s had 6 bankruptcies , when most people lives would be ruined by 1 bankruptcy, When our friends and neighbors were dying on foreign soil, he committed a felony so someone else could go in his place. Nobodies even ever thought to hold him accountable for that, He’s obstructed justice on at least 8 occasions , never had to answer a single question about it in a court of law, The former mayor of my city did it once,he’s serving 23 years . Donald trump commited a felony when he engaged in a scheme with his attorney to commit campaign finance fraud, His lawyer is a convicted felon because of it and has served time in prison, Donald Trump is simply named an Unindicted co-conspirator and resides at 1600 pennsylvania avenue , I mean really, the guy conned his way to the white house , The same guy that we all know has never read the constitution the 73 years he’s been on earth, he’s read it about as much as he has read that bible he had last week.. He defrauded students out millions with a fake university , didn’t even get a slap on the wrist, just pay a fine. Defrauded people out of their money with a fake charity, same thing just pay a fine. But check this ridiculousness out, He literally did the absolute worst thing you can do to a democracy when he asked, now its up to 3 foreign leaders to help him subvert our democracy , We just learned about 1 of them this week , There will be no investigations, Donald Trump has fornicated with an “adult actor” without protection , bragged about se**aly assaulting women, stood on stage and implied that a widows husband was in hell, tear gassed american citizens peacefully exercising their constitutional rights in front of a church, using a bible thats so foreign to him that he didn’t even know how to hold it, using it as a political prop, yet and still 60% of the people in this country that call themselves christians , think god sent him here to save them from the evil liberals, because apperently without Donald Trumps moral authority , we would start having gay orgies in the streets and offering 10 minute abortions at gas stations while you fill up, and 1/2 off beef jerkey for every pregnant woman you bring with you. I could go on, but I say all of this to say, think of how disgusting you have to be inside , to be a 73 year old man, who has gotten every single break that most of us couldn’t even imagine getting . You are the “leader” of the civilized world , the most powerful man on the planet, you have an entire whitehouse that serves at your pleasure , You have the ability to shape the world and positively impact this planet long after you are gone. Yet you choose to do absolutely nothing, that is unless you consider telling lies and causing division doing something .

    Quick Fix: Testing WH staff will lead to more positive cases. So stop testing WH staff and WH will be all good. Thats how testing works right?

      And MLK would be aggrieved with the violence these protests have become associated with. ‘Black Toddlers Lives Matter,’ Geraldo Rivera. Two children, two year old Shania Gilmore and McKay James, three years old, just died because of gangs in Chicago. One was home, inside, and the other in a vehicle. Where is the rage, the protests against the gangs? Where? Where? Where? Silence. The truth lies somewhere in the silence. The truth.

      So alwayz please lets debate whata ya say ? Friendly debate. Let’s start with the virus ok
      Are people suppose to stay locked in their homes forever? Do you think herd immunity doesn’t gave an effect
      Have you seen the death toll going up as it was before
      The more you test, the more people will test that they had it and test positive for anti bodies
      Did you read the entire story about the staffers or just listen to cnn, the ones that spent an hour with medical experts two weeks ago saying trump has Parkinson’s and cutting off and editing a video of him walking down a ramp ?

    • On Point!

    • @Fortis Fortuna Adiuvat how is possible to have a discussion if what you say doesn’t make sense, doesn’t follow any logic, it’s clearly BS full of assumptions, it’s not scientifically accurate, based or proven, and you make things up? Go back to the bunker with the bunkerboy.

    When will they learn that they don’t matter to trump? But it’s bound to backfire, because how will it help him in November if everyone is sick or dead? His rationalization is beyond any sane thinking.

      barbara – It’s life with a malignant narcissistic sociopath. There is nothing sane about it.

  16. Why did the staffers get tested? If they wouldn’t have been tested, they would have been COVID-19 free

      Keep on purchasing tickets to Trump rallies between now and Novemember. If we keep doing this he is finished. It will be a landslide

    • Giggitygooquag | June 22, 2020 at 10:47 PM | Reply

      @john wallace he said if you test more you have more cases how is testing less having less cases any different?

      Yes if you test more you find more people that might have it but not testing at all is probably the worst thing you could do because now you have no grasp on the severity of the situation. And I don’t give a crap if they say he was joking, he wasnt.

  17. Ten people that work near him are positive. He must think he’s immune. He isn’t.
    When is everyone going to realize that he’s insane? Looney! Cracked. A druggie.

    The only way Trump will take Covid19 seriously is when he gets it himself, or he’s already a asymptomatic for virus.

  19. Australia: 102 Deaths
    America: 120,000 Deaths
    America’s population is 15 times larger than Australia’s
    America should have just 1,500 deaths
    (Please fact check these statements. I did.)
    The GOP has a LOT to answer for!

  20. Every day since his presidency, I feel like I’m caught up in the matrix. Like I took the wrong pill.
