Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows claims former President Donald Trump’s blood oxygen level was extremely low when he had COVID-19 in 2020, according to a his new book.
Meadows recently released “The Chief’s Chief,” a detailed account of his work for the former president, in which he outlines Trump’s coronavirus situation.
Meadows claimed Trump’s blood oxygen level was about 10 points below normal on the day he tested positive for COVID-19 in October 2020.
“That morning, Dr. Conley pulled me aside and delivered some bad news,” Meadows said of Sean Conley, who led the White House medical team, according to The New York Times.

“Although the president’s condition had improved slightly overnight, his oxygen levels had now dipped down to about 86 percent and could be trending lower, a dangerously low level for someone his age.”
Meadows has continued to be supportive of Trump after his time in the White House, despite controversies in mainstream media regarding their relationship.
The story of Trump’s time with COVID makes for interesting reading, but the media spin on the topic often reaches into the realm of fiction.
