Sein Stabschef packt gegen Ex-Präsidenten aus: Trump testete bereits vor TV-Debatte mit Biden positiv

Donald Trump soll ein positives Corona-Testergebnis erhalten haben – bevor er zur TV-Debatte gegen Joe Biden antrat. Wenige Tage nach dem Wahlevent begab sich Trump ins Spital.

Donald Trump (75) wurde drei Tage vor seiner ersten Debatte gegen Joe Biden (79) positiv auf Covid-19 getestet. Das schreibt Mark Meadows (62), der ehemalige Stabschef des Ex-Präsidenten, in seinem neuen Buch.

Mark Meadows schreibt auch, dass Trump wusste, dass jeder Kandidat, der an der TV-Debatte teilnahm «innerhalb von zweiundsiebzig Stunden vor dem Start negativ auf das Virus getestet werden musste. Nichts konnte Trump davon abhalten, da rauszugehen.» Das berichtet der «Guardian», dem das Buch vorliegt.

Erster positiver Test am 26. September

Demnach habe Trump kurz nach dem positiven Test ein negatives Ergebnis eines anderen Tests geliefert. Es sind schwere Vorwürfe, die der Ex-Stabschef macht. Immerhin hätte sich Trump wissentlich infiziert in Bidens Nähe befunden, der damals 77 Jahre alt und noch nicht geimpft war.

Trump gab am 2. Oktober bekannt, dass er Covid hat. Das Weisse Haus teilte mit, dass man das Ergebnis innerhalb einer Stunde nach Erhalt des Testresultats bekannt geben habe. Die TV-Debatte fand am 29. September statt.

Trumps erstes positives Ergebnis wurde am 26. September entnommen. Es sei «ein Schock für das Weisse Haus gewesen». Denn wenige Tage zuvor hielt Trump eine Zeremonie für die Kandidatin für den Obersten Gerichtshof, Amy Coney Barrett, ab. Es handelt sich um das Event im Rosengarten – ein Ereignis, das zum Covid-Super-Spreader-Event wurde.

Trump hatte «leichte Erkältung»

Dennoch sei man am 26. September davon ausgegangen, dass es ein falsch-positves Ergebnis des Präsidenten sei. Der Präsident habe laut dem Buch «ein wenig müde» ausgesehen und eine «leichte Erkältung» gehabt. Als das positive Testergebnis kam, befand sich Trump auf dem Weg zu einer Kundgebung in Middletown, Pennsylvania.

Sobald der Ex-Präsident mit der Air Force One landete, überbrachte ihm Mark Meadows die Nachricht. Trumps Antwort: «Oh Schei**e, das kann doch nicht wahr sein.» Daraufhin wurde Trump erneut getestet. Mit einem Test von einem anderen Hersteller. Das Ergebnis: negativ.

Vor TV-Debatte kein Test

Trump setzte seine Reise fort, golfte am nächsten Tag und besuchte eine Veranstaltung für Militärfamilien. Später sagte der Ex-Präsident, er habe sich bei dieser Veranstaltung möglicherweise angesteckt. Ihm seien Leute nahe gekommen.

Ob Trump sich vor der TV-Debatte tatsächlich testen liess, ist unklar. Der Moderator Chris Wallace von Fox News sagte später, Trump sei vor der Debatte nicht getestet worden – weil er zu spät gekommen sei. Auch das Weisse Haus hatte nicht mitgeteilt, dass Trump drei Tage zuvor positiv und negativ getestet worden war. (euc)
