Trump Holds First Rally Since Coronavirus Diagnosis


President Trump is back on the campaign trail for the first time since his coronavirus diagnosis. Trump held a Make America Great Again rally in Sanford, Florida yesterday – one week after his release from a hospital to get treatment for the virus. Trump said he has been "energized" by prayers and thanked the crowd for their support.

He again called this year's contest “the most important election in history” and claimed enthusiasm is “greater now” than it was in 2016. As for his “former” diagnosis?

That’s in the past – and now, Trump says he “feels powerful. “I am so energized by your prayers and humbled by your support,” Trump offered. “Twenty-two days from now we’re going to win this state, we’re going to win four more years at the White House.”

Speaking of the rally, Dr. Anthony Fauci believes Mr. Trump should be avoiding holding campaign rallies because of rising coronavirus cases around the country. This, as the President's rallies don't typically require the wearing of masks or social distancing. Speaking to CNN, Fauci argued the events are "asking for trouble." He added "now is even more so a worse time" for rallies as the positive test rate is five percent or higher in over 30 states.
