White House physician Sean Conley says President Donald Trump has tested negative for the new coronavirus.

But the administration has been intentionally spreading disinformation, which gives us little confidence in the veracity of this most recent statement.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham released a statement on Saturday that said after Conley had “an in-depth” conversation with the president late Friday night, Trump “elected to proceed” with having a COVID-19 test.

Conley wrote that on Saturday that he “received confirmation that the test is negative.”.

Trump’s doctor added, “One week after having dinner with the Brazilian delegation in Mar-a-Lago, the President remains symptom-free.”

Two people that Trump came in contact with from that dinner have since tested positive for COVID-19.

If that’s true, that might be the only thing that could be considered normal in this administration. »
