Leftists reacted with glee upon hearing the news that President Trump, as well as VP Pence, came into contact with a foreign official who has since tested positive for Covid19, the coronavirus.
Both the President and Vice President met with Brazilian government official Fabio Wajngarten last week.
The guy standing to Trump’s left just tested positive for coronavirus, according to Brazilian media. Fabio Wajngarten posted this photo, taken during meetings at Mar-a-Lago, five days ago. pic.twitter.com/qioU4qIlxl

Wajngarten, the press secretary for Brazilian Presdident Jair Bolsonaro, has since tested positive for coronavirus. Trump has said he is not concerned about the meeting.
Trump asked about interacting with infected Brazilian official:
“We did nothing very unusual. We sat next to each other for a period of time. … Let's put it this way: I’m not concerned.”

However, many leftists expressed joy that the President could have been exposed to the virus, with several using ‘fingers crossed’ memes, clearly hoping that Trump becomes ill and dies.

Think it’s more likely that Coronavirus will be hoping it hasn’t caught Donald Trump
— Matthew Spivey (@matt_spivey) March 12, 2020
Fingers crossed 🤞
Not as awful as it sounds. If Trump got Coronavirus and was made sick but didn’t die, it would prompt a real govt response. We need him to get a serious but not fatal case of it.

Others noted that Nancy Pelosi would become president if both Trump and Pence became incapacitated:
Next in line if they both get sick is Pelosi.
— robb cadwell (@somsai) March 12, 2020
Isn’t Pelosi next in line after those two should they be incapacitated?

If Trump and Pence got seriously ill we could get president Pelosi.
I hope her staff are writing up 20 executive orders just in case.

Everyday Americans, and Trump supporters, were disgusted by the response:
Your have a lot of followers that have straight up lost their minds. The amount of people that giddy to see the president get sick and die is disgusting.
— Darade (@DaradeDesign) March 12, 2020
You people are hideous.
— SomethingSuddenlyCameUp (@BeachBumLolly) March 12, 2020
Your comment is uncalled for & completely disgusting people are dying from this virus so you want them to die just because they don't share your political views? that's asinine. Pelosi will never become president with her alcoholic ass she can't even speak.. #leftistarepathetic

Meanwhile, a conspiracy theory is now doing the rounds that an ‘anonymous White House source’ has said Trump is freaking out that he might have the virus, or that someone will intentionally try to give it to him, but refuses to get tested:
Trump has told some staff he hasn’t felt well over the last few days including during address. He refuses to get tested.
— Not Bill Murray (@StayWonked) March 12, 2020
Trump might have the corona virus and doesn’t wanna get tested
