Ivanka made 'nagging calls' to Trump to rest after Covid-19 diagnosis, Internet calls family 'super-spreaders'
Critics of the Trump family lashed at Ivanka for holding a rally in Arizona without safety precautions
Ivanka Trump has said that she made many “nagging calls” to her president father asking him to take rest after he tested positive for Covid-19. Besides, she also shared that she “will be the first in line” to get coronavirus vaccination when it's available. The remarks from the first daughter came while she was in Arizona rallying for the upcoming presidential election. She made the statements in front of 200 people at the Mountain Shadows Resort in Scottsdale. The 38-year-old also mentioned that Donald Trump was patient despite her constant nagging. She also added that a vaccine for the virus was "coming very quickly", The Sun reported.
“If anyone has any doubt, I'll be the first in line. Like, I know the rigorous standards that went into this," Ivanka said. Commenting on her father, she said he was "doing great" after being diagnosed with coronavirus. “If anyone had any question over his health and vitality, I think watching him over the last week would reassure them tremendously,” the mother-of-three stated, who was accompanied by former White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley on the stage. Ivanka also posted about the rally on her Twitter account, where she wrote: “Under President Trump’s leadership, Arizona is leading the Great American Comeback for the country. Great being back in Phoenix today campaigning for @realDonaldTrump.” When she arrived at the event, she was seen donning a face mask but while addressing the attendees she removed it. People attending the event were also seen sitting close while listening to her.
But she received a lot of flak on Twitter with American art critic Jerry Saltz saying: "Ivanka speaking in AZ. - no social distancing. No masks. The Trump family super-spreaders are at it again." Another one said: "You're literally out there murdering people. You're as fucking horrible a person as him and your brothers. You should all rot in jail."

"And her entitled privilege like her father if she gets sick she will get all the privilege that he did with treatments we can't get. My anger runs over when they don't even wear a fucking mask or social distance," added the third user.

Ivanka's statements came after the POTUS claimed that he was “immune” to the virus. In a tweet, which was later flagged by Twitter, Trump said: “A total and complete sign off from White House Doctors yesterday. That means I can’t get it (immune), and can’t give it. Very nice to know!!!” But the microblogging site soon attached a message with his tweet that read: “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.”

Not just on Twitter, Trump also boasted about his immunity on a Sunday morning, October 11, interview with Maria Bartiromo of Fox News. When asked by Bartiromo if he is coronavirus free, the president replied: “Yes – and not only that, it seems like immune so I can go way out of a basement,” while adding he is “immune for maybe a long time, maybe a short time, maybe a lifetime". He also stated, “The President is in very good shape to fight the battles. Once you do recover, you're immune."
Earlier, after his release from Walter Reed Medical Center, Trump asked people not to be afraid of the virus. “I just left Walter Reed Medical Center, and it’s really something very special — the doctors, the nurses, the first responders — and I learned so much about coronavirus. And one thing that’s for certain, don’t let it dominate you. Don’t be afraid of it. You’re gonna beat it. We have the best medical equipment; we have the best medicines — all developed recently — and you’re gonna beat it,” the 74-year-old said in a short video on Twitter.
