President Donald Trump will hold campaign rallies virtually amid his diagnosis of the novel coronavirus, according to a statement tweeted by his reelection Campaign’s Director of Press Communications Erin Perrine.

“All previously announced campaign events involving the President’s participation are in the process of being moved to virtual events or are being temporarily postponed,” the statement from Trump’s campaign manager reads. “In addition, previously announced events involving members of the First Family are being temporarily postponed. All other campaign events will be considered on a case-by-case basis and we will make any relevant announcements in the days ahead.”

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will quarantine in the White House as they deal with the Coronavirus. Both, as of right now, are reported to only have minor symptoms, according to the Associated Press.

Regarding Vice President Mike Pence, the statement continues, saying: “Vice President Mike Pence, who has tested negative for COVID-19, plans on resuming his scheduled campaign events. Any further information about the President will come from the White House.”

This is a serious shake-up for Trump’s campaign strategy, which, throughout the pandemic, has featured numerous, large, in-person rallies and events. His campaign has also continued to operate an aggressive door-knocking campaign. Trump being cooped up in the White House for many days will certainly remove him from valuable time on the campaign trail, with 32 days until the election.

Democratic presidential nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden, and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), have both tested negative for the virus.

Following the Trumps’ diagnoses, Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel have both tested positive for the virus.

PJ Media report: SHOCKER! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lago Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative

PJ Media’s Kevin Downey Jr. has dissected a Washington Post report regarding findings from the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. “Shocker! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lag0 Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative” Downey Jr.’s report is titled.

“Remember when the FBI raided Trump’s home supposedly looking for “nuclear secrets” a few months back? Guess how that turned out?” the article begins.

I’ll let the quislings at the Washinton Post spell it out:

Federal agents and prosecutors have come to believe former president Donald Trump’s motive for allegedly taking and keeping classified documents was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or mementos, according to people familiar with the matter.

In other words, Trump was keeping souvenirs, as everyone else does.

Funny how WaPo sat on that story until after the midterms, right?

But wait, there’s more!

That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said. FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said.

The WaPo also found no evidence that Trump was looking to “leverage, sell or use the government secrets.”

They threw the idea in near the very end that they still might come up with something juicy:

The people familiar with the matter cautioned that the investigation is ongoing, that no final determinations have been made, and that it is possible additional information could emerge that changes investigators’ understanding of Trump’s motivations. But they said the evidence collected over a period of months indicates the primary explanation for potentially criminal conduct was Trump’s ego and intransigence.
