Infecting Stephen Miller with the Coronavirus may be the most impactful thing that Trump has done to fight white supremacy.

Stephen Miller, a senior policy aide to President Donald Trump tested positive for coronavirus, he said in a statement on Tuesday.
“Today, I tested positive for COVID-19 and am in quarantine,” said Miller, who has been one of the chief architects of Trump’s immigration policies. He added he has been working remotely for the last five days and has been self-isolating.
Miller, who has been regularly traveling with the president and one of his closest aides, is the latest aide in the Trump orbit to test positive for Covid-19. Numerous people tied to the White House or campaign have tested positive, including Trump and the first lady.
We should remember that Miller’s wife had tested positive in May.
Miller is by no means the only person around Trump who has recently tested positive.

A military valet who comes in contact with Trump tested positive for Covid-19 over the weekend, a person familiar with the matter tells NBC News.
Despite all of this the White House has rejected the CDC’s offer to help them with contact tracing. In fact, there are reports that there is no contact tracing going on at this time.
And the spread within the government is not limited to inside the White House either.

The top US general, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley, and several members of the Pentagon’s senior leadership are quarantining after a top Coast Guard official tested positive for coronavirus, several US defense officials tell CNN.
The Pentagon is “conducting additional contact tracing and taking appropriate precautions to protect the force and the mission,” after vice commandant of the US Coast Guard, Adm. Charles Ray, tested positive on Monday, according to Jonathan Hoffman, assistant to the secretary of defense for public affairs.
Despite efforts by the Pentagon to stress that military leaders can carry on business as usual from quarantine, the prospect of the virus spreading among senior officials who work in one of the world’s largest office buildings will likely raise major national security questions, particularly as it follows a major outbreak in the White House that hospitalized President Donald Trump and after three Republican senators tested positive in recent days.
“We are aware that Vice Commandant Ray has tested positive for COVID-19 and that he was at the Pentagon last week for meetings with other senior military leaders. Some meeting attendees included other Service Chiefs,” Hoffman said in a statement Tuesday.
Fear over catching the “Trump virus” has now spread to others who have worked with Trump or his associates.

Thirteen workers at a Minneapolis steakhouse were quarantining after the restaurant catered a private fundraiser attended by President Donald Trump during his visit to Minnesota last week, the restaurant said Monday.
The food workers are employed by Murray’s Restaurant in downtown Minneapolis, which catered the fundraiser on Wednesday at the Lake Minnetonka home of Marty Davis, CEO of the quartz countertop manufacturer Cambria. About 40 contributors paid $200,000 a couple or $100,000 per person for the chance to meet the president and hear him speak.
I think it is abundantly clear that Donald Trump is a super spreader and that he is currently walking around inside of the People’s House spreading this virus to every single person who can run to safety.
And that virus is also making its way outside of the White House walls to infect others in the DC area setting the stage for the next Coronavirus hotspot.
Rather than working to fight this disease, it appears that Donald Trump is now working as a double agent to help spread it far and wide.
