As world leaders woke up to the news on Friday morning. Many were quick to send out letters of goodwill.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was among the first to respond on Friday, writing on Twitter: “Wishing my friend @POTUS @realDonaldTrump and @FLOTUS a quick recovery.” German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson also offered support.
“Like millions of Israelis, Sara and I are thinking of President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump and wish our friends a full and speedy recovery,” Netanyahu, a close Trump ally, tweeted.
“My best wishes to President Trump and the First Lady. Hope they both have a speedy recovery from coronavirus,” said Johnson, who has diagnosed himself with the infection in late March and spent a week in a London hospital, where he received oxygen therapy. The Washington Post reported.
In the spotlight, however, was a news article about the president from the Washing titled:
“Opinion: Imagine what it will be like to ever think about Trump again”.
Many people on twitter pointed out that without the President, the liberal media would be without a job!
CNNs Don Lemmon had the following to say: “[Is this a moment of reckoning for the president and this administration?” “For all of the — all of the pretending or looking the other way and trying to convince people otherwise of the science, for whatever reason — whether it was for, to make sure that he was re-elected, to make sure that he had high standing with the public, or just to — for whatever reason. because of the economy. is this now a moment of reckoning that — yes, this is real. it is not a hoax. it doesn’t care if you’re a Democrat or a Republican. It is time to take this seriously, and all the preventative measures that the scientists, the doctors, like Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx, have been touting for so long?”
It is important to note that Doctor Fauci recently pointed out that Trump’s handling of the COVID 19 crisis was actually rather good.
