While many have speculated if Donald Trump and his administration has been telling the truth about his COVID-19 contraction, a new bombshell from NBC News revealed on Thursday that the president demanded doctors at Walter Reed Medical Center to sign nondisclosure agreements in order to treat him.
According to sources who spoke with the publication, Trump made his demands when he was rushed to Walter Reed for undisclosed treatment in November 2019.
It appears that many members of the hospital staff, most of whom are active-duty military service members, did sign the agreements.
However, NBC News’ sources say that “at least two doctors at Walter Reed who refused to sign NDAs were subsequently not permitted to have any involvement in the president’s care.”
The report raises questions about why Trump was so insistent about doctors signing NDAs given that they are already prohibited from publicly disclosing his medical condition.
“Anyone providing medical services to the president — or any other American — is automatically prohibited by federal law from disclosing the patient’s personal health information without consent,” NBC News writes.
