The Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, affirmed this Friday that his counterpart from the United States, Donald Trump, who contracted COVID-19, will recover quickly from the disease and will come out stronger not only for the good of his country but of the whole world.
The far-right leader, one of Trump’s main allies in Latin America, whom he refers to as his model, also said that the decision of the US president to preventively isolate himself it will not hurt his campaign in which he will seek re-election.
“I wish the president of the United States and the first lady, Melania, a speedy recovery. With faith in God, they will quickly be recovered and their work in leading their country and their re-election campaign will not be harmed, “Bolsonaro, who also contracted the disease and isolated himself for ten days to recover, said in a message on his social networks.
“You will win and come out stronger for the good of the United States and the whole world”added the Brazilian president, who, like Trump, is one of the most skeptical leaders about the severity of the coronavirus.
The US president was transferred this Friday afternoon to a military hospital to be treated after testing positive for COVID-19, as confirmed by Trump himself in a video broadcast on social networks in which he said that, despite the fact that you think it’s okay, you want to make sure “things work out.”
Trump, 74, brings together several of the risk factors for developing more severe symptoms of COVID-19, due to your age, gender and obesity.
His hospitalization came after the president’s doctor in the White House, Sean Conley, explained that the president was administered eight-gram doses of the experimental cocktail of antibodies from the pharmaceutical company Regeneron.
