Is the White House using Morph Cut to hide Coronavirus? Are Deep Fakes next?

Is the White House using Morph Cut to hide Coronavirus?

In a quote from an article on No Film School, people are reporting:

In his recent Walter Reed address while being treated for COVID-19, Trump appears to begin to hiccup, cough, or sneeze after saying the word “therapeutics” (around the 1:04 mark in the video), but some Twitter users claim it is an exit cut in the footage.

This jump cut is both startling to the eye and easy to dissect with even a basic knowledge of editing software.

What does this mean for the future of video and the claim of authenticity that used to come with it? My mind immediately jumps to deep fakes and how we will soon need advanced professionals in the field to spot them. Imagine a more competent President taking office and using deep fakes to cover their illnesses. Are Deep Fakes next?
