The presidential debate, September 29, 2020.
While Trump took the negative result as “full permission to go ahead like it’s nothing,” Mark Meadows says he ordered everyone in his immediate circle to treat the president like he’s infected.RELATED
“I didn’t want to take unnecessary risks,” Meadows writes, reportedly, “but I also didn’t want to alarm the public if there was nothing to worry about, which according to the new, much more accurate test, there was no.”

On Sunday, Sept. 27, the first day between testing and debate, Mark Meadows says Donald Trump did little except play golf in Virginia and host an event for military families where he “spoke about the value of sacrifice.” It was Trump who later said that he could have been infected at that event, thanks to people who “are sometimes an inch from my face, want to hug me and want to kiss me. And they do. And frankly, I’m not telling you to back off. “
Donald Trump flatly denied the new statements by Mark Meadows:
The story that I had COVID before or during the first debate is false news The story that I had COVID before or during the first debate is false news
The White House had not said that Trump had tested positive and negative three days earlier. Three days later, on October 2, Trump tweeted that he and his wife, Melania Trump, were positive.
