  1. National Security just got a big boost, with that moron sidelined.

    If Trump wants to get out of debt he should make a reality TV show of him quarantined with Melania for two weeks… wtf would that look like?

  3. The man has always been a national security risk.

  4. Trump having Covid is no more a risk to national security then Trump without Covid. Either way he is still a puppet for Putin.

      Fair enuff. a fellow Kiwi, always welcome:) Now we have to make sure our political system doesn’t slide into the sewer as America’s has. We should watch and learn and keep them out as much as we can.

      @Jim Battersbee even if he gets back into office, he’ll lose… He sparked the biggest international investigation into the banks of Americas Shananigans. They’re all being investigated for, money laundering for Drug cartels and the one I’m most interested in, stealing possible finances from developing countries… Dow Jones has been taking the hit since the news came out. It’s possible that America is about to hit a wall financially, they’re being investigated all over the world, even NZ has been investigating it since July last year.

      They are a nation of liars and crooks. Not all, but most of them.

    Nature’s way of ensuring a peaceful transfer of power.

  7. He didn’t ware a mask, he is reaping what he sold,

  8. I don’t know why anyone considers this anything but a good thing. Many thousands of lives might be saved in various ways. This coupled with Trump’s inevitable loss might salvage 2020 after all. I’m rejoicing.

    • I also believe that American lives will be saved, once he dies. That’s what Everyone is thinking about deep in their souls.

      I’m surprised how many people in my area are arguing with me about this. I truly didn’t ask for it to happen, but I’m not sad about it. I think it is Karma, period.

    • This is the best thing since block cheese. Make America grate again!

    • @Jonathan Mol that was so awful, i just had to give it a thumbs up.

    The funniest headline so far is:
    “LIVE: Trump tests pos”
    – Bloomberg QuickTake: Now

  10. GOP is desperate, I would be skeptical about this news and open to the idea this might be some sort of desperate ploy to get out of the debates and depress the Lefts urgency to vote. Please just Vote.

      @William H Only the Manson Family will be voting trump.

      Yes, and Republican states are pushing vote-by-mail suppression.

    • I don’t pay attention to debates to make my voting decision. Doesn’t matter what the republiCONs do, I’m not voting for trump.

      I voted by drop box today against him. I don’t believe he has it. However if he does the WH is and will continue to lie saying it’s mild but given he’s old, obese with other underlying conditions. If he has it could be really bad hopefully.

    Now we can call it the Trump virus:
    he likes to put his name on things.

  12. Its most likely a ploy to stop or delay the Election. In the surge of Voter purging, manipulation and intimidations it appears that Donald it just grabbing into his sack of ugly bad tricks.

    • Steven Griffin | October 2, 2020 at 5:54 PM | Reply

      Perhaps, but when you are 70+, obese and not in good shape, just like any those poor unfornutes people in rest home: might die.
      Good time to discuss health care……… , living wage, union rights seeing how those charged with caring for him have those issues.
      Probably not jabbing about how Biden mask is too big, looks funny and stupid to wear. The poetic justice here is supreme, nothing trumps it.

    If Trump has “mild symptoms” already, then he’s been infected for 7+ days. *_This is the best day in 4 years!_*

    • Stanley Steinke, Yes, they are only wearing masks when they’re on Marine One. Like I said, the main issue is that he has been in a lot of contact people through those events that you mentioned. It’s worse than a super spreader event really, he’s a highly mobile super spreader.

    • Stanley Steinke | October 2, 2020 at 10:48 PM | Reply

      @Geoffrey K watch news late tonight weekend repubican Congress members have covid talk about getting caught in your own trap this is the October surprise, how many of the party have prexisting condition now

    • Stanley Steinke, I don’t believe that there has been anyone else confirmed yet, but certainly it is likely. Apparently Trump’s kids have been tested and surely the inner circle has been too. Presumably they are using more reliable tests now, but nevertheless, everyone he has been in close contact with since at least Monday should be getting tested regularly and should be in self quarantine now. The issue is, especially with those who may have contracted it from him on Wednesday and Thursday, the virus is still incubating and will not register on even the most reliable of tests yet. Indeed, it can be assumed that many of the people he came in contact with are older and/or obese.

      @Geoffrey K tillis just announced his postive test a minute ago, told you all coming out this weekend

    • Stanley Steinke | October 2, 2020 at 11:02 PM | Reply

      @Geoffrey K how about Barr is he old obese?? Because the video shows him hugging The press secretary at the fundraiser yesterday

  15. Donald who ? Never heard of him, never met him, I may have seen a picture of him in Brietbart.

  16. Flavius Stilicho | October 2, 2020 at 5:23 PM | Reply

    What does it mean for National Security? *_It means we are SAFE for the first time in four years!_*

  17. Sorry, but I personally think this “Positive” testing is just some political stunt.

    • That wouldn’t surprise me in the least. I don’t trust anything he says. Nor do I trust that he would not say or do absolutely anything to mess up & steal the election. I will say though, that the Trump presidency has been a real frustrating but never very boring nail-biter of a reality show. Wow!

    • Kimberly Galanti | October 2, 2020 at 9:47 PM | Reply

      He knows hes losing. He also knows that there are a multitude of crimes he will be indicted for once he is out of office. If he signed the presidency off to Pence, Pence could pardon him.

    • Robert Richard | October 2, 2020 at 10:57 PM | Reply

      Glenn Kirschner is thinking the same way. Homeland Security is just more big government jobs Governor Bush handed out to manufacture consent for invading Iraq.

  18. He already had 11 staff members including his wife and daughter using private email servers for WH business … He doesn’t give AF about security

    “The White House hasn’t been completely transparent”? Well, there’s a surprise. They haven’t been transparent (aka honest) since this maniac took office!

  20. Trump and his swamp have never been transp arant! They all lie, they are greedy, sneaky. Vote blue in November
