After the initial positive test Governor DeWine was administered two additional test that both came up negative. Raising the question, how many false positives are being included in the daily reported numbers being used to implement authoritarian policies blatantly outside the scope of the United States Constitution. I covered it at PM Nightly News:
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine (R) was forced to cancel a meeting with President Trump after testing positive for Covid-19 on Thursday. President Trump revealed the positive test during brief remarks in front of a limited crowd in Cleveland. According to DeWine’s Twitter account the Governor took the test as part of the “standard protocol to greet President Trump” and he has “no symptoms at this time.”
As part of the standard protocol to greet President Trump on the tarmac in Cleveland, I took a COVID test. I tested positive. I have no symptoms at this time. I’m following protocol and will quarantine at home for the next 14 days.

Governor DeWine will self-quarantine for two weeks to follow protocol after testing positive.
President Trump praised DeWine and wished him well during brief remarks on the tarmac in Cleveland before boarding Marine One to give a speech at the Whirlpool Factory in Clyde, Ohio.
