Trump Campaign Attacks Joe Biden for Not Having COVID-19 - 2020-10-05
If you were wondering how the Trump campaign might try to spin the president's COVID-19 diagnosis into a positive for his re-election effort, the first hints started to emerge during a Monday morning Fox News appearance by Director of Communications Erin Perrine.
Asked by Fox anchor Sandra Smith if President Trump will "change his messaging" and stop "downplaying" the coronavirus moving forward now that he has dealt with it personally, Perrine touted the importance of "firsthand experience."
"Firsthand experience is always going to change how someone relates to something that's been happening," she said. "The president has coronavirus right now. He is battling it head on, as toughly, as only President Trump can. And of course that's going to change the way that he speaks of it because it will be a firsthand experience."
