If you were wondering how the Trump campaign might try to turn the president’s COVID-19 diagnosis into a positive for his re-election effort, the first clues began to emerge in an appearance on Fox News Monday morning by communications director Erin. Perrine.
Asked by Fox anchor Sandra Smith if President Trump will “change his message” and stop “downplaying” the coronavirus in the future now that he has treated it personally, Perrine touted the importance of ” first-hand experience ”.
“The first-hand experience will always change the way someone relates to something that is going on,” she says. “The president has coronavirus right now. He is fighting head-on, as hard as only President Trump can. And of course that will change the way he talks about it because it will be a first hand experience.
When Smith urged Perrine to explain why the pandemic took precedence over the economy and “law and order” in the Trump campaign message, the aide insisted he “had also talked about the coronavirus ”.
“He talked about it all,” she continued. “And listen, he’s got experience as a commander-in-chief, he’s got experience as a businessman, he’s got experience, now, in fighting the coronavirus as a ‘individual. These first-hand experiences, Joe Biden, he doesn’t have them.
Combining the COVID-19 contract with the president’s ‘job creation’ record and serving a commander-in-chief, Perrine concluded, “These first-hand experiences are what will give President Trump four years. Furthermore. So of course he talks about it differently now that he’s been through it.
His words seemed to echo those made by the president himself in a Walter Reed hospital video during the weekend. “It was a very interesting trip. I learned a lot about COVID, ”Trump said. “I learned it by really going to school, it’s real school, it’s not ‘let’s read the book’ school, and I understand, and I understand it.
