Donald Trump’s campaign team is not wasting time. While the US president is being treated for COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, his aides are trying to use his situation to get money and votes.

“President Trump cannot remain inactive (…). He must move forward and lead our nation, ”his eldest son, Donald Jr., informed voters in an e-mail with a call for donations revealed by journalist Phillipe Corbe.

Donald Trump Jr. gives assurances that his father is strong. “Leaders face challenges, and that’s exactly what my father does,” he insists toward the end of a message with a $ 75, $ 65, $ 55, $ 45 campaign call or “whatever.”

Another email is trying to raise public awareness. “The beautiful words and wishes of healing sent by the whole world have not gone unnoticed. But he (Trump, ed.) Appreciates most everything the great American Patriots have said, like you. ” The message ends with an exhortation to buy an “I love Trump” T-shirt for the small sum of $ 30.
