US Election 2020: How will President Trump’s hospitalisation affect the race? – BBC Newsnight


With just a month to go before the US presidential election, what impact will Donald Trump’s spell in medical care have on the campaign race? Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog US President Donald Trump has left hospital, three days after being admitted with Covid-19, vowing to be back on the campaign trail soon. He flew for the short trip back to the White House on the presidential helicopter Marine One. “Feeling really good!” Mr Trump tweeted earlier. “Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life.” More than 7.4 million cases of Covid-19 have been recorded in the US. The virus has killed nearly 210,000 Americans. Questions remain over the seriousness of Mr Trump’s illness after a weekend of conflicting statements. The true scale of the outbreak at the White House remains unclear. Has this episode shifted the dial and how might it affect the presidential election? Newsnight’s US Correspondent David Grossman reports and Emily Maitlis is joined by David Plouffe, manager of Barack Obama’s successful 2008 presidential campaign, and Stacey Washington, Co-Chair of Black Voices for Trump.

  1. What is it with Trump supporting representatives being unable to answer straight questions.

    It’s pathetic. I expect this type of ‘politics’ in North Korea, not North America

  2. A reporter asks a question. The interviewee then launches into a prepared speech. This goes on and on. Cut them off then redirect them to the question. How difficult would that be. It trashes politics.

  3. You havent heard anyone talking negative about the vaccine???? Are you fooking shitting me!!! BBC You are either stupid af and incompatent or purposely trying to mislead people coz you know that joe biden and kamala harris were talking negative about the vaccine!!!! WHY ARENT YOU TALKING ABOUT THAT OR AT THE VERY LEAST NOT LIE ABOUT IT… The BBC is garbage

  4. The reasons for Trump leaving the hospital feeling energized could be either :

    – HE IS SHIT SCARED OF DEATH and wants to feel energized and run away from facing his poor condition so as an adolescent he decides to ignore medical advice!

    – HE IS WORRIED ABOUT LOSING THE ELECTION AND THE LAW SUITS that follow.

    – HE HAS A COMPLEX ABOUT FEELING GREATER THAN OTHERS IN ORDER TO OVERCOME HIS INFERIORITY CONPLEX !!!

    Trump is a narcissistic and egocentric character with exaggerated feelings of self-importance, an excessive craving for admiration, and struggles with empathy. His Favourite pass time is to spend much time daydreaming about achieving power and success, or on their appearance !!!

  5. The second time this presidentgoes to the hospital, he’ll be intubated! Please those people who still believe of not using masks and social distancing, brave yourself! Until that ET gets into your mouth, you’ll never learn your lesson! Make tour wishes be known now to your family bec this Covid is no laughing matter!

  6. the trump supporting lady did seem frustrated as it whent on but I also saw a great bias by the moderator that made the interview a little hard to watch. Felt like both women only responded to each other on a personal level not driven by the facts of the topic.

  7. I have been suffering from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) disease for the past six years and had constant pain, especially in my knees. During the first year,I had faith in God that i would be healed someday. This disease started circulating all over my body and i have been taking treatment from my doctor, few months ago i came on search on the internet if i could get any information concerning the cure of this disease, on my search i saw a testimony of someone who has been healed from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) by this Man Dr abiola and she drop the email address of this man and advise we should contact him for any sickness that he would be of help, so i wrote to Dr. Abiola telling him about my (HERPES Virus) well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me. I am now here to testify that i am not longer a herpes patient, I have experience a total transformation in my life,for all herpes patients get your herbal medicine to cure your sickness. And there has being rapid improvement in my health, I no longer feel pains and I wake up each morning feeling revived. So friends my advise is if you have such sickness or any other at all,you can contact him on any of this diseases WhatsApp+2348163587231 @dr_abiola3

  8. With the level of hate directed towards white Americans and Trump supporters, do you actually believe people will admit support for trump to pollsters. He will win. Stop reporting the results you hope for lol!

  9. Brain washed people… So sad to see. I love the comment David gave "it's an AMERICAN talking point not a democratic taking point." We need to treat this like it's a human response to not want Trump to lead this country not a democratic response.

  10. Biden was speeding in a school zone when a local police officer pulled him over and walked up to the car. The officer also happened to be a Biden supporter and she asked for the Biden’s driver's license. Biden searched frantically in his wallet for a while and finally said to the policewoman, "What does a driver's license look like?"
    Irritated, the cop said, "You dummy, it's got your picture on it!"
    Biden frantically searched his wallet again and found a small, rectangular mirror down at the bottom of the wallet. He held it up to his face and said, "Aha! This must be my driver's license" and handed it to the policewoman.

    The cop looked in the mirror, handed it back to the Biden and said, "You're free to go. And, if I had known you were a police officer too, we could have avoided all of this."

  11. SATAN IS EXPOSED!!!!! Hell was created for Satan and his fallen Angels(Matthew11:41 AND 2Peter 2:4).Satan and his fallen Angels fought God’s angels to overthrow God but were defeated and were thus thrown out of heaven to the earth(Isaiah14:12-14 AND Revelation 12:7-10).Satan and his fallen Angels will be thrown into hell to be tormented 24/7 for ever and ever(Revelation 20:10 AND Jude 1:7).Satan and his fallen Angels want you to join them suffer in hell even though you were not part of the coup makers(Revelations 20:10-15).Satan, and for that matter his fallen Angels stand condemned by God and hence do not have any chance of repentance(John 16:11).Fortunately, you and I have up to minutes before our death to repent just like the criminal on the right side of Jesus on the cross (Luke 23:39-43) WHY NOT REPENT NOW AND GIVE YOUR LIFE TO JESUS?Since you don’t know how and when you will die, my brother or sister, THE TIME TO REPENT IS NOW!!

  14. If BBC News were serious, you would interview experts from Taiwan = 7 or New Zealand = 25.

    Why ask Americans or British who have done nothing for 8 months, then tell you what they wrote in their books?

    The US death rate is currently 215,506+ and UK 42,445 and both steadily climbing.

    US and UK media and experts, left and right, are all responsible for watching and doing nothing.

  15. WHO 3 point plan: Social distance, wash your hands and wear a mask.

    New Zealand followed leader Jacinda like sheep, had 25 deaths and now Covid free.

    Herd immunity: Do nothing.

    US followed leader Donald like sheep, and are dying in droves 215,506+.

  16. Taiwan = 7, New Zealand = 25, Vietnam = 35 and China = 4,634 have BEATEN COVID!

    Trump's HERD IMMUNITY or DOING NOTHING has caused 215,506+ AMERICAN DEATHS and i's NOWHERE NEAR BEATEN.

    The US VIRUS is TRUMPS FAULT and he needs to be STOPPED!

    Why keep calling it the China virus when they and others applied the SIMPLE 3 POINT PLAN that WHO advised 8 months ago in FEBRUARY!

  17. "Trump hosts a Super Spreader Event"….for a judge that will have control over women's bodies….and who will repeal healthcare for millions …..even ones with pre existing conditions …..when Trump caught the virus himself….he had the best possible care ….the care that he denies others……paid for by your taxes……the very taxes he refuses to pay himself!

  18. NOTE: On 10/02/2020, an EDP Criminal, Computer HACKER, has Repeatedly Deleted my Comments (QTY = 350) to SUPPORT TRUMP & PENCE Videos, for 4 more years. Please STOP your DIRTY POLITICAL TRICKS! We (ALL Political Parties: Red, Blue & Other Colors), need FUNDS, and WORK TOGETHER, to Pay some Bills, Donations, Gifts, Celebrations, Burials, etc … Presidential Election Date 11/03/2020.

    USA PRESIDENTIAL TRUMP & PENCE TEAM For 2021 To 2025:

  19. The BBC web site has run multiple anti-Trump headline articles this week. No articles critical of Biden – zero – nada. Whether you support Biden or Trump this is wrong – DEFUND the BBC. The BBC has been HIJACKED by leftist radicals incapable of being impartial. Education is therefore impossible as BBC articles are low grade propaganda and brainwashing and a worse FOREIGN INTERFERENCE than Chain or Russia combined. Get out of the US BBC. YOU ARE NOT WELCOME. I will see you out if it is the last thing I do. FCC here I come. BBC is a disgusting parasite on the UK tax payer. Baking programs will not SAVE the BBC liars by omission. Just get rid of the BBC it is social divisive and a threat to social cohesion. The BBC has become the problem. If you work for the BBC you are shameful. Example one piece criticized the President taking a car ride with his protection – these people have vowed to take a bullet for the President so a virus will not deter them. These people have a sense of dripline and duty. DISAPLINE and DUTY make no sense to the low level parasites who write for the BBC.

  20. I am very happy that I can make money. The way they told me was exactly the same as the way I took back profits. I have no debts for the tank for Mrs. Joel today. I hope the world knows you and your good works. Connect with her on Instagram @joelclaytonfx

  21. Stacy Washington – are you aware that you are in total denial ? You don't look like an idiot yet the words coming out of your mouth aren't sending that message. Remember – #SLM (Smart Lives Matter)

  22. I really appreciate all her effort with the little investment of $500 with joy all over me after withdrawing $5000 and another $3500 through the help of my manager mrs Joel. You can connect with her on Instagram @joelclaytonfx

  23. I’m still surprised on how I got so much profits after hearing that a lot of people were scammed . This is just amazing and I’m still shocked thanks. Mrs Joel is the best and don’t hesitate to follow her on Instagram @joelclaytonfx

  24. BBC

  25. Looks like 4more years in office

    Most Say They Are Better Off Now Than Four Years Ago (October 7, 2020 Gallup Poll)

    During his presidential campaign in 1980, Ronald Reagan asked Americans, "Are you better off today than you were four years ago?" Since then, this question has served as a key standard that sitting presidents running for reelection have been held to.

    Gallup's most recent survey found a clear majority of registered voters (56%) saying they are better off now than they were four years ago, while 32% said they are worse off.

  29. Please when will the USA supporting groups realise he is not good for world relations.

    He doesn't fear the virus because he has treatment that others don't have. He has money. He gets better care than most of the people.

  30. Even without illness, Trump can't win a second term. Nobody with a sober mind can queue to vote in this spoilt brat. Believe me, Biden will win with a landslide not because he is better but because he just happens to be lucky to contest an election with the most useless idiot candidate on the planet. Indeed, Biden doesn't even need to campaign. This election is free for him to lose.
