      GOP donors ‘freaking out’ after coming close to Trump at fundraiser hours before his positive Covid-19 test

      Brian Schwartz

      • GOP donors have been reaching out to Trump campaign and GOP officials for any guidance following a fundraiser with the president hours before his announcement that he has Covid, according to a person briefed on the matter.
      • About 30 to 50 donors came close to the president Thursday night, this person added.
      • The RNC has said everyone who attended the Bedminster, New Jersey, event was tested for Covid-19, passed a temperature test and was 6 feet or more from the president at all times.
      Some Republican donors questioned the president’s decision to go to the event after his longtime advisor Hope Hicks became ill. Hicks tested positive Thursday morning after displaying symptoms Wednesday night while on a campaign trip to Minnesota with the president.

      @realDonaldTrump should not have gone to a fundraiser yesterday knowing Hope was sick. He should have not tried keeping it a secret!

        RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tests positive for coronavirus

        By Kaitlan Collins and Veronica Stracqualursi, CNN

        Updated 3:46 PM ET, Fri October 2, 2020


        As a top official, McDaniel frequently interacts with the President and other top Republican lawmakers. She was last with the President last Friday, according to the Times.

        Her decision to stay at home in Michigan all week left her absent from Tuesday's presidential debate in Cleveland between Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.

          Concerns about contacts

          The news about the president'hs diagnosis has prompted concerns about his busy schedule over the past week, and the number of people he's been in contact with.
          Among the events President Trump attended over the past 7 days was a Sep 26 Rose Garden ceremony to announce the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, where many in attendance were not wearing masks. Two attendees of that event, Sen Mike Lee (R-Utah) and University of Notre Dame president Fr. John Jenkins, both tested positive today.
          On Wednesday, the president attended a fundraiser in Shorewood, Minnesota, and later held a rally in Duluth. Three Minnesota Republican congressmen flew on Air Force One to and from that rally, and all three are getting tested, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. The Minnesota Department of Health also issued a warning that there is a potential risk that transmission occurred at the Duluth rally and other events associated with the president's visit.
          "Anyone who attended events associated with the President's visit and who now has symptoms should get tested right away," the department said in a statement. "People should consider getting tested even if they do not have symptoms because some people may not develop or recognize symptoms and people can spread the virus even without displaying symptoms."
          On Tuesday, President Trump participated in the first presidential debate of the 2020 election. Neither the president, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, nor moderator Chris Wallace wore masks during the 90-minute debate, but all were more than six feet apart. Biden and his wife both tested negative today.
          Fox News reported that New Jersey Gov Phil Murphy is urging everyone who attended the president's fundraiser at the Trump National Golf Club on Thursday to get tested for the coronavirus.
          Brown University School of Health Dean Ashish Jha, MD, said on Twitter that everyone who's been near the president since Saturday should be identified and tested.
          "I'd go back, test everyone near [the] President from at least Saturday on to see if we can identify [the] source," Jha tweeted. He also said that anyone near the president since Tuesday should quarantine.
          Vice President Mike Pence and second lady Karen Pence have both tested negative. But Pence's physician released a memo saying the vice president does not need to quarantine because he's not a close contact of the president, according to The Hill.

            Apparently Kellyanne Conway attended the announcement of President's Trumps nomination for a new Supreme Court justice at the White House on September 26.

            Tonight I tested positive for COVID-19. My symptoms are mild (light cough) and I’m feeling fine. I have begun a quarantine process in consultation with physicians. As always, my heart is with everyone affected by this global pandemic.

                Tonight my COVID-19 test came back positive. I’m following the recommendations of my doctor. Thankfully, I have no symptoms and feel well. COVID is a very contagious virus. If you were exposed or start to display symptoms, please call your doctor, self-isolate, and get tested.

                      I just received word that I am positive for COVID-19. I want to thank all of my friends and colleagues who have reached out to ask how I was feeling in the last day or two. I will be receiving medical attention today and will keep the necessary folks apprised of my condition.

                        FluTrackers does not endorse this source. It may, or may not be accurate. It looks like it is crowd sourced (which is a good thing!). So as with everything - always use at least two sources for your news.
