The Trump White House says it will not reveal when Trump last tested negative because that is Trump's "private medical history."
The White House, meaning Trump, is wrong on two counts.
First, Trump is not a private person. The American people own the President. If Trump wanted to keep his privacy, he should not have run for President.
Secondly, the Trump White House appears to be unaware that we are in the middle of a pandemic, which is only getting worse. It is essential that we know when he last tested negative so that we can find out with whom Trump was in contact. Trump is contagious.
There are two obvious conclusions to Trump's unwillingness to divulge that critical information. The first is, Trump doesn't care how many people become ill because of contact with him. That part is obvious.
Also, that piece of medical history must be very dangerous, medically and politically.
How long did Trump go without being tested? A week? Two weeks? A month?
We don't know, and a White House that is in complete disarray won't tell us. There are at least 22 people in Trump's circle that have tested positive for the virus.
