The consultation is to be conducted by Dr. Marc Siegel of New York University, a regular medical consultant for the post, who said, among other things, that it is “almost impossible” for a patient up to the age of 70 to die of covid -19.
Marc Siegel is the author of the 2008 book “False Alarm: The Truth about the Epidemic of Fear,” in which he accuses the press of spreading fear in current pandemics.
After his return to the White House, orchestrated with great fanfare on social networks, a whole mess of Donald Trump’s physical condition appeared.
His personal doctor has announced that he can resume his public appearances on Saturday, but an interview given by Fox Business seems to contradict him.
In this telephone interview, Trump seems to have lost his breath and has had difficulty speaking several times.
His performance, considered “unleashed”, also worries observers, in the context in which the next debate with Joe Biden, on October 15, will be virtual.
Democratic Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi presented a bill Friday to set up a commission of inquiry into Trump’s ability to lead the United States.
Marc Siegel, who is due to undergo a medical on Friday, told Fox News that “it is too early to determine Mr. Trump’s condition.” But he stressed that his selflessness to return to work as soon as possible “inspires”.
Republican Donald Trump, well ahead of Democrat Joe Biden in polls 25 days before the Nov. 3 presidential election, is trying to resume his campaign at all costs on Friday, a week after he was hospitalized with covid-19.
Isolated at the White House after leaving Walter Reed Military Hospital on Monday, he was to attend a virtual radio rally organized by a conservative figure, Rush Limbaugh.
Aside from his first televised appearance on Friday night on his “friend” Tucker Carlson, Trump wants a rally in person on Saturday in Florida, and then another rally on Monday in Pennsylvania – two key states in which is necessary to get a victory, as in his surprise victory in 2016, if he wants to get a new four-year term in the White House.
This multiplication of gatherings – with more or less physical distancing and protective masks in public – is denounced on all sides.
But the message is clear – after turning the page on his illness, the 45th president of the United States, aged 74, “is fine” and goes back into the ring.
