Re: My prediction for the presidential debates

It is no way POTUS’ SARS2-CoV19 tests aren’t logged. Since they could not reply, it means he tested positive or didn’t test before the debate. There is no way this wasn’t known to Trump at the time, and it was huge and important. That he didn’t know this yesterday means dementia. So... Trump is the ...
