Fauci says Trump 'was lucky to SURVIVE Covid' because of his 'age and weight'

DONALD Trump was "lucky" to survive the coronavirus given his age and weight, Dr. Anthony Fauci said of the former president this week.

"He could have gotten into serious trouble," the nation's leading infectious disease expert said of his former federal government colleague. "I think he was quite fortunate.

Questions of the former president's health and weight had remained prominent through his presidency, with some questioning the validity of his doctor's wellness checks even before he got Covid-19.

When Trump announced by tweet on October 2 that both he and then-First Lady Melania Trump had contracted the coronavirus, more questions began swirling around his health and his weight.

A physical claimed he weighed 244 pounds and stands at 6'3, causing many of his critics to call him obese.

One of those naysayers include House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who called him at the time "morbidly obese."

A February 2018 White House physician's report also mentioned Trump had a common form of heart disease.

Not being fully transparent with the public, it was and still is not fully known when exactly he and the First Lady contracted the virus, so when they announced, sleuths quickly began searching for his health conditions and where he may have contracted the virus.
