Every online Trump appearance in quarantine will be given ‘breaking news status’
Sky News host Paul Murray says every one of Donald Trump’s online appearances from quarantine will take on “breaking news status”, enabling him to turn the situation away from being a curse.
It comes following news President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump both tested positive for COVID-19 and have gone into quarantine while they recover.
“As we saw, by his (Trump’s) tweet, he took his phone with him into the residence for the next two weeks,” Mr Murray told Sky News host Peta Credlin.
Mr Murray said this gives President Trump a “phenomenal ability” because “every time he pops up on a phone-based interview”, just his appearance alone will be given instant “breaking news status”.
“While he can’t get to Pennsylvania and Florida, he’ll be ringing those breakfast shows and those local TV markets all day every day,” he said.
“It’s not a blessing but that’s how he’s going to turn it from a curse.”
