Former First Lady Melania Trump and Donald Trump Jr were reportedly involved in the White House's alleged cover-up to hide former US President Donald Trump’s positive COVID-19 test just days before debating Joe Biden last year.

These claims against Melania and Trump’s son are made by the former President’s ex-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows in his new book titled "The Chief's Chief," said political analyst Greg Sargent in The Washington Post.

Sargent wrote that the Trump family has long been treating laws and rules as nuisances that are only meant for the "little people." And the news that before the presidential debate in 2020, Trump tested positive for COVID-19 shows that "this tendency may be even more depraved and malevolent than you thought.” The political analyst added that the revelation also implicated Trump’s family members like his wife Melania and his son Trump Jr.

Amid these bombshell allegations, people are pointing out how Trump didn't succeed in upholding COVID standards and procedures back then. Sargent said that according to contemporaneous reports, many people around Trump, including his wife and his children, Trump Jr and Eric, sat mask-less at the debate that was held on Sept. 29 last year. They apparently refused to wear masks despite the fact that attendees were asked to wear one.

He also mentioned that as several reporters witnessed at the time, Trump’s family members went mask-less after rebuffing a direct request to wear masks from a doctor with the Cleveland Clinic, which helped in organizing the debate. That doctor reportedly offered them masks, but they refused to wear them.

Latin Times recently reported that after the emergence of reports claiming that before the debate, Trump tested COVID positive, he branded them "fake news." Trump issued a short statement saying that the story of him having "COVID prior to, or during, the first debate is fake news," and that a test revealed that he "did not have COVID prior to the debate."

After this, Meadows also called the reports “fake news." The former President's fourth and last chief of staff said that if you read his book, the context of it, the "story outlined a false positive." According to him, Trump had a test after which he had two more tests that proved that he wasn’t infected during the 2020 debate.
