In other news, the World Health Organization (WHO) says the world just set another new record high number of coronavirus infections in a day with 338,779 total infections recorded yesterday.

Meanwhile, an additional 840,000 Americans filed new initial claims for unemployment last week, or over 1 million if you include gig-economy workers only covered by the federal government. Economists expected fewer.

Finally, NBC News reports that when Trump made an emergency visit to Walter Reed last year, he forced doctors and staff to sign non-disclosure agreements.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump required personnel at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to sign nondisclosure agreements last year before they could be involved with treating him, according to four people familiar with the process.

During a surprise trip to Walter Reed on Nov. 16, 2019, Trump mandated signed NDAs from both physicians and nonmedical staff, most of whom are active-duty military service members, these people said. At least two doctors at Walter Reed who refused to sign the NDAs were subsequently not permitted to have any involvement in the president's care, two of the people said.

The reason for his trip last year remains shrouded in mystery.

I think he suffered a stroke. There's nothing funny about that, but it's been hidden for political reasons.

    Seems..utterly wrong. A president is subject to..well..different scrutiny, and we, the people have to know his fitness for duty. This is all..bullshit.

    As a professional courtesy to their colleagues and trumps employer- all of us- no doctor should sign an NDA. Then wtf will he do?
