Former US presidential candidate Herman Cain dies of coronavirus

Herman Cain, former U.S. presidential candidate, dies after contracting coronavirus

"My friend Herman Cain, a Powerful Voice of Freedom and all that is good, passed away this morning", Mr Trump wrote. It's not clear when or where he was infected, but he was hospitalized less than two weeks after attending Trump's campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on June 20.

"Herman Cain - our boss, our friend, like a father to so many of us - has passed away", the editor of his website wrote. "We all prayed so hard every day. And yet we also felt real concern about the fact that he never quite seemed to get to the point where the doctors could advance him to the recovery phase".

Covid-19 cases were rising in the area at the time, prompting local officials to ask Mr Trump to cancel the event.

Trump faced criticism for holding the big-arena event despite warnings from public health experts that it is not yet safe to hold mass gatherings. He stated that five days ago, there were "hopeful indicators" for the ex-presidential candidate in his COVID-19 battle. "So I guess you can connect the dots".

Another user, "BrooklynDad_Defiant!" tweeted that Trump was guilty of manslaughter for allegedly having the "social distancing' stickers removed from the seats" at the Tulsa rally.

Ranking the five favourites to sign Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish
United have made Jadon Sancho their priority and are growing increasingly confident a deal can be done with Borussia Dortmund. Grealish has also been linked with a move to Manchester United but the asking price is likely to scare them away.

"We knew when he was first hospitalised with COVID-19 that this was going to be a rough fight", Calabrese wrote. Two Secret Service agents also tested positive.

Some, including MSNBC host Joy Reid, could not let go of the unconfirmed speculation that the Tulsa rally was at the root of his fatal illness, as others steadfastly cited Cain's "selfish" refusal to done a face covering as reason for refusing any sympathy for the man.

He graduated from Morehouse College, a historically black college for men in Atlanta, received a master's degree from Purdue University and worked as a civilian mathematician in the US Navy.

"He is an American success story, and I hope the people will praise him and give him the respect they're giving another contemporary that just died: I'm referring, of course, to John Lewis", Elder told Thursday's "The Chris Salcedo Show", noting Cain was featured in his documentary "Uncle Tom" as a survivor, both of cancer and political persecution.

He ran for president in 2012, briefly leading in the Republican Party polls during the primaries. After leaving Godfather's in 1996, he joined the National Restaurant Association, a lobbying group, as CEO until 1999. Though Cain denied the accusations, he suspended his campaign. The president wanted to nominate him for the Federal Reserve Board, but Cain dropped out after receiving backlash from Republican lawmakers.
