97-year-old WWII vet to meet with Drumpf Friday

This is a story about the soldier who decoded the surrender announcement from Germany. However, a few paragraphs in it reports that he was to be flown from Phoenix to Washington today in order to meet drumpf at the White House tomorrow. Wonder if the news about Drumpf's aide testing positive will change those plans, since the shithead is meeting with someone who has to be considered high risk for a lethal outcome should the vet contract COVID-19. My guess is the asshole won't give a thought to that possibility.
