Will Joe Biden test positive for COVID-19? The shocking news of Donald Trump being infected with COVID-19 was posted by Trump himself on Thursday night. I first saw my Facebook friend posting about it, but I dismissed it as “fake news.”
I went to check Mr. Trumps Twitter to see if it was real. It was!
I immediately thought of Joe Biden, who spent the presidential debate in the same room as Donald Trump. What would happen if both Biden and Trump died of COVID-19?
The elections would have to be delayed. Both the democrats and the republicans would have to select new candidates. It would be the most shocking thing to happen in American history.

Seniors Are More Likely To Die For COVID-19
Statistically, there is a good chance that Trump could die from COVID-19. Trump is 74 years old, and Biden is 77 years old. Both are at an age that makes them at risk for dying of COVID-19.
Boris Johnson, the British prime ministry, said he almost died from the virus, and he is only 56 years old. Boris was in the hospital for a week and needed special treatment. Perhaps treatment that only a president or prime minister could get. Boris spent three nights in intensive care, where he was given oxygen and watched around the clock by medical workers.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel didn’t leave the house after her doctor got the virus. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also worked from home when he thought he might have COVID-19, which turned out not to be the case.
“Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!” Trump tweeted on Thursday Night.
Trump Was Diagnosed With COVID-19 On China’s National Day
I found it ironic that after Trump called COVID-19 the “China Virus” for many months, he was diagnosed with COVID-19 on China’s national day on October 1st. I am sure the Chinese government will have a laugh about that, in private.
The positive diagnosis of COVID-19 comes one month into the election. Trump’s senior advisor, Hope Hicks, was recently diagnosed with COVID-19 as well.
It is not surprising that since Trump has been traveling around the country and meeting so many people, that he contracted the virus that has killed over 200,000 people in the United States. It has not been possible for the president to socially distance.
Mr. Trump has assured the nation on multiple occasions that the virus was no big deal. It would be ironic if the Coronavirus was his downfall.
In the memo above, Trump’s doctor said that Trump and his wife “are both well at this time” and that they are planning to remain at home. But for how long will they remain well?
“Rest assured I expect the President to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering,” Sean Conley, the doctor, added.
With his own diagnosis, Trump will no longer be able to downplay the virus. It is clear that we are now in the second wave, and that until there is a vaccine, there will be tough times ahead.
Biden test positive for COVID-19?
The other question is will Trump be able to continue his campaign? With the election coming up on November 3, 2020, will he have enough time to recover from COVID-19? Will he able to attend the rest of the presidential debates?
Perhaps Trump will take COVID-19 more seriously. My guess is that Joe Biden will be secretly happy with this news, assuming that his own COVID-19 test shows negative.
Will Biden test positive for COVID-19? Only time will tell. If Biden does test positive for COVID-19, it will cause chaos in the USA.
Does China Want Biden Or Trump To Win The Election?
With the United States election coming up on November 3, 2020, many people are wondering if it would be better for China if Biden or Trump won. In the past few years, there have been tensions between Xi and Trump, who have both fought to expand their countries’ influence around the world. Some are hopeful that if Joe Biden wins the election, that there would be refreshed diplomacy between China and the US.
There is still hope for a “reset” of relations between the two countries. Many Americans are also looking for a return to normal, after years of trade wars and the economic impact of COVID-19. This is likely why Biden is currently beating Trump in the polls.
The Second Cold War
China and the United States have opposite goals. China wants to execute the Belt and Road initiative, and the United States wants to stop it. This rivalry has been going on for decades. However, previously both countries seemed willing to overlook political differences due to the massive economic benefits.
“Given the historical importance of the 2020 elections, there is a fleeting window of opportunity for both sides to climb down from the cold war-like confrontation, whoever wins the White House,” said Pang Zhongying of the Ocean University of China.
Yang Jiechi of the CCP said that “China has no interest in meddling in U.S. domestic politics.”
The Upcoming Election In the United States
The United States election will take place on November 3, 2020. The United States has alleged that Russia wants Donald Trump to win and China wants Biden to win. The US has said that Russia is spending money promoting Trump’s victory, which Putin has denied. One reason why the US thinks that Russia wants Biden to lose is that Joe Biden opposed Russia going into Ukraine when he was vice president under Obama.
Trump on the other hand does not seem to have much interest in Russia being in Ukraine. When Trump was confronted that he had not been hard on Russia, Donald Trump said “I think the last person Russia wants to see in office is Donald Trump because nobody has been tougher on Russia than I have.”
I don’t agree that Trump has been hard on Russia. Donald Trump seems to be much more concerned about China’s growing power. Russia hasn’t been a massive threat to the west since the fall of the Soviet Union.
Is It Better For China If Trump Or Biden Win The Election?
It’s better for China if Biden wins the election. Donald Trump wants everything to be made in the USA. Mr. Trump fears China and wants to put it down before it grows too big. It’s unknown if Biden will be more friendly towards China. However, it’s clear that four more years of Trump could lead to military conflict.
Relations between China and the US are bordering on war. It takes one incident for a “cold war” to become a “hot war.” If China and the US were to ever go to war, the number of casualties would quickly surpass that of the second world war. Chinese people are also concerned about going to the US due to changing immigration rules targeting people with Chinese passwords. No one wants to get caught up in a trade war.
It takes a lot of work from someone to move from Beijing to New York City to go to university. The last thing the student wants is to be forced to return home after a few months.

Things Need To Change | Biden test positive for COVID-19?
I write articles like this because I want to raise awareness that the current “west” versus “east” hostilities are only temporary. Only two years ago, I wrote an article for the Vancouver Sun, speaking about how Canadian businesses should consider expanding to China. The timing of the article was not great.
Despite many western companies pulling out of China in 2020, I decided to swim against the current. I know that things will get better, so I opened my legal services company in Shanghai this year. I am confident that in the long term, things will reduce to normal.
