Billie Joe Armstrong, the co-founder and frontman of the punk-rock band Green Day, has reacted to the news that President Donald Trump and the current First Lady of the US, Melania Trump, tested positive for COVID-19 while claiming that they’re lying for the profit of their campaign.
As you know, Donald Trump has recently tweeted to inform he and his wife, Melania Trump, have tested positive for COVID-19. The Trumps got tested after it was confirmed that Donald Trump’s top aide, Hope Hicks, whom he spent substantial time with, has the virus.
The current president and the first lady of the US have begun their quarantine process. Donald Trump said on Twitter that they will get through this together. After the first presidential debate of 2020, this statement of Trump caused controversies in the country and some of the citizens thought it may be a hoax.
Renowned for his criticisms of the Conservative party and an anti-Trump, the iconic musician Billie Joe Armstrong has targetted the statement of Donald Trump confirming they’ve tested positive.
Armstrong posted the screenshot of Trump’s tweet and said on Instagram Stories that he believes neither Hope Hicks, nor the Trumps tested positive for COVID. He said that it’s an act aiming to distract the public from his support for proud boys and tax returns.
Billie Joe continued and admitted that he believes Donald Trump uses this situation as an excuse to get out of the debates and plans to delay the election. He also added that he has no trust in this president at all.
Here is what Billie Joe Armstrong said on Instagram Stories:
“I don’t believe Hope Hicks has COVID. Trump campaign is trying to distract the public from his support for proud boys and his tax returns.. Just sayin’.”
“All I gotta say is prove it..”
Billie Joe shared the screenshot of Donald Trump’s tweet, in which he said:
“Tonight, Melania Trump and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this together!”
He said over this tweet:
“Bullshit. You’re a fucking liar.”
Armstrong said after that:
“Donald now he has an excuse to get out of the debates… Bullshit!!”
In his last story he said:
“He’s going to try to delay the election over this.. I do not trust this president at all!”
