Watch: David Seymour impersonates Donald Trump, says COVID-19 diagnosis is 'comeuppance'

ACT Party Leader David Seymour has impersonated US President Donald Trump on The Project Monday.

It comes after assumptions Trump has left a trail of COVID-19 infections after testing positive for the virus. Analysts said he could likely be a superspreader for COVID-19 after attending various campaign trails days beforehand.

"I think the problem is, no one's explained to him that super-spreading is a bad thing," host Jeremy Corbett said on The Project Monday.

"We're gonna do the best spreading, the best, we're all gonna do the perfect spreading, and you're going to like it a lot of people are going to like the spreading," Seymour mocked.

The ACT leader described Trump being diagnosed with COVID-19 as a "comeuppance" after  talking down the severity of the virus for months.

"Look, just when you thought 2020 couldn't get any weirder, it's like some children's fairytale where people kinda get their comeuppance I suppose," Seymour said.

Donald Trump and his wife Melania tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday but according to Wall Street Journal sources, he kept this a secret.

The next day, Trump was taken to military hospital Walter Reed Medical Centre but claimed on Twitter he was "going well, I think!".

"Given the sheer volume of potential contacts of the president over the days ahead of his diagnosis, public health officials should be very worried about the emergence of a super-spreading event," Harvard epidemiologist with Boston Children's Hospital John Brownstein told ABC News
