While undergoing treatment for COVID-19, President Trump decided to leave the hospital for a brief trip in his Presidential motorcade, in a move many are calling ill-advised and potentially dangerous. While many of his supporters defend his actions, others are criticizing his decision-making, claiming that his cavalier actions might be putting not only his aides, but secret service agents at risk. Speaking on the matter, Trump's former campaign manager Cory Lewandowski pointed out that both agents in the SUV with President Trump volunteered for the detail, but others within the Secret Service agency paint a different picture.
"You can't say no," one agent told CNN. While another stated: "That should never have happened." Revealing that the agents who accompanied Trump in the SUV would need to quarantine following possible exposure, "I mean, I wouldn't want to be around them," the agent added.
Despite those around him claiming that proper precautions were taken, many doctors are still questioning the President's reasoning. "The irresponsibility is astounding. My thoughts are with the Secret Service forced to play," said Dr. James P. Phillips, a physician affiliated with Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
