Not sure how well they can quarantine them in the WH. Is Melania still there? They probably don't want it potentially spreading throughout there if they don't have to. There is also the fact that he's the Prez, plus at higher risk due to his age, so in general they are going to be extra cautious. The fact it's crunch time in an election on top of it. Last thing Trump wants is to be locked down any longer than he has to. The sooner he can get healthy the better, period. For anyone potentially thinking whether it may be a political ploy, going to a hospital helps legitimize the illness.

Could certainly be more serious to some degree though. Wonder how long before we truly find out if ever?

Why couldn't they quarantine in the Whitehouse? I'm assuming they have ways to keep people isolated there. I'm not sure I follow. 

I don't think it's a ploy, because I don't think this helps him politically. But, I think he doesn't want to project what he sees as weakness.

Based on what I'm seeing, I think it's bad.

Ivanka's statement to me doesn't seem to be indicative of something mild

"You are a warrior and will beat this. I love you dad."

Same for Eric.

is a true warrior. He will fight through this with the same strength and conviction that he uses to fight for America each and every day. I ask you to join me in praying for his recovery. I have never been more proud of someone and what they have had to endure."

I couldn't find the pictures, but the look in Ivanka's eyes when they were taking him (to be fair it might have been out of context) looked very scared.

Then there's experimental treatments being done on a 74 year old man in a key position. The fact that they already said he'd be there for a few days.

I don't have any more information than anyone else, but my read is that this is a serious health risk. I am guessing that by the end of the weekend Mike Pence will be handling Preisdential duties.

I was more so asking. I don't know how well they can quarantine the WH and keep spread under control there. Maybe they can, I don't really know. Would they go to extra precautions to keep covid out of there? That's why I asked about Melania. It may also be easier to keep her stationary vs Don though?

The Trumps are about always showing strength. This doesn't surprise me. He could be quite ill, but just because they seem scared and their words follow suit, for a bunch of liars and cheats apparently, it's hard to believe some people might see this as honest. Could be. Might not.

I also mentioned in another thread that I thought part of the debate plan was to make Trump seem like an underdog like with Hillary. That didn't exactly pan out. Biden's so laid back it made Trump look like a huge bully. Politicians love to say don't let any opportunity go to waste. This is the perfect thing to make Trump seem like an underdog. Fight off covid and come out stronger than ever before. It's just a possibility of many.

I was honestly wondering if Trump or his campaign would consider stepping down for now. Not sure how this procedure works exactly. If Trump could hand over the Presidency to Pence for a couple weeks, then take over again, assuming he's plenty strong and healthy, this would work to his favor. He could boast about beating covid, and he could put to rest the, 'evil dictator who won't ever peacefully give up power narrative'.

This can work to Trumps favor big time in many ways. It all depends on how the illness itself goes. I don't really think it's a conspiracy myself, though I always leave the door slightly open because well, 2020 should be enough proof that most anything is possible.
