Trump and Covid

What this Means for America and Its Impact on Young People

Trump and Covid

The entire United States and the world were shocked by the announcement of Trump’s contraction of COVID-19 in early October. With it comes the undeniable questions of the future. As of October eleventh, the White House doctor said President Trump is no longer contagious, but what does this mean for the next month leading into a major presidential election?

When asked what her initial reaction was to President Trump getting COVID-19, Campbell Blum, a junior at Farmington High School, said: “I was shocked. I didn’t think he would get Corona.” She then explained how she thought this would elevate tensions with the upcoming election, saying: “I think it elevated tensions because Trump got unreleased medicine or something like that.”

According to an article featured in the New York Times, President Trump was treated with an experimental antibody cocktail, laced with a heavy steroid meant to reduce inflammation in the lungs. In several phone calls from the presidential suite at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Mr. Trump spoke of an idea he was considering. When he left the hospital, he wished to initially appear worn-down and frail at first glance, according to those who supposedly heard his conversation. However, underneath his dress shirt, he would be wearing a Superman T-shirt, which he would show as a symbol of strength and victory when he unbuttoned the top layer. Ultimately, he did not go on with his idea.

Garrett Bowyer, a sixteen-year-old student, said his piece about his initial reaction to Trump’s COVID contraction: “I kinda felt bad for him.” He then said: “Joe Biden loosened up his attack on Trump, and the second debate didn’t happen so things will probably be a lot more strict.”

Although most high schoolers are unable to vote, it is important to be educated and up to date on politics, so they may understand what is going on in the world. Plus, whenever one is able to vote, they will all-around have a better understanding of societal opinions and issues.

President Trump’s diagnosis of COVID-19 is just another bump in the unpredictable road of 2020. Although this years’ presidential campaign has been unlike any other, it is certain the tensions will rise to unforeseeable heights.
