Glenn Perkins and Matt Thomas are each an identical age to 74-year-old President Trump. Like him, each have been hospitalised with Covid-19.
But the 2 males have very completely different restoration experiences to the president’s.
And whereas each are Republicans, Glenn and Matt have differing views on Trump.
The septuagenarians share how they recovered after weeks in hospital, and their ideas on the president’s sickness and the state of the US pandemic response.
