US President Donald Trump downplays the pandemic

President Donald Trump who recently left hospital and is still contagious has been seen posing for a photo at the White house with his mask off. Donald Trump is thought to be downplaying the disease as before his departure from the hospital on Monday evening he told Americans in a tweet not to fear the disease, “Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life.”

Mr Trump’s diagnosis has upended his campaign for a second term in office, less than a month before the Republican president faces Democratic challenger Joe Biden in the presidential election.

Wearing a navy business suit, tie and mask, Mr.Trump walked out of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in the Washington DC suburbs pumping his fist. “Thank you very much, everybody,” he said, ignoring questions from the media, including one reporter who asked: “Are you a super spreader, Mr.President?”
