While Chris Christie was lying in a hospital bed with COVID, Trump called him fearing that Christie would tell people that he had given him coronavirus.
Via: The New York Times:
Mr Christie reveals how concerned he and others were for his survival after contracting the coronavirus after being in the White House around the same time that Mr Trump and several other aides contracted Covid-19. Mr. Christie writes that his priest arrived at the hospital and rubbed oil on his forehead in the Sign of the Cross as he prayed for him.
He received a call from a hospitalized Mr. Trump who had one major concern: “Are you going to say you got it from me?” Mr. Trump asked him.
Trump wasn’t concerned about Christie’s health and wellbeing. He just worried that he would be held responsible for giving him COVID. For the record, Donald Trump gave COVID to a lot of people. There have been several outbreaks in Trump’s White House over Trump’s refusal to require tests and masks, and Trump’s political rallies upset many Americans for refusing to hold small gatherings and adhere to mask and social distancing guidelines.
Trump never wanted to take responsibility for the pandemic. The chaos the country is currently battling can be traced back to Trump’s refusal to enact federal guidelines to limit the spread of COVID.
Donald Trump doesn’t care about human life. For him, the only thing that matters is getting recognition and avoiding blame.
