President Donald Trump's COVID-19 Risk Factors

Description:

While much of his medical history is vague, from what we do know, he has some risk factors that could lead to a severe case.


President Donald Trump received medical treatment that hasn't been available to other Americans throughout the coronavirus pandemic. On Fox Business, he dismissed COVID-19 as no big deal and spread misinformation about the virus.
Many are wondering how President Donald Trump's COVID-19 diagnosis will affect his presidential campaign. CBS News White House Correspondent Paula Reid told Inside Edition Trump is "likely going to be off the trail for 10 days, maybe two weeks, depending on how long he commits to quarantine." The second debate, scheduled for Oct. 15, is now up in the air. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said one option is to hold the debate remotely from two different locations.
"Let me begin by wishing the president and the first lady a full and speedy recovery from the COVID-19 illness."

Sen. Bernie Sanders spoke about President Trump's COVID-19 diagnosis while campaigning for Joe Biden on Saturday.
