Trump planning Saturday campaign rally
WA SHINGTON (DPA) 9 OC TOBER 2020 - US President Donald Trump said Thursday he is hoping to hold a campaign rally on Saturday, after the White House doctor cleared him for a return to public events by the weekend.
Trump’s comments came during an interview with Fox News in the evening, where his raspy voice was repeatedly punctuated by coughs.
“I think I’m the most analyzed human being in the world right now,” Trump said, adding that he will “probably” be tested for the coronavirus on Friday.
Earlier in the day, White House doctor Sean Conley cleared Trump for “public engagements” by Saturday.
Conley’s statement did not say if the president has tested negative for the virus, or if Trump plans to test negative before attending public events.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people infected with the coronavirus are supposed to isolate for at least 10 days from the onset of symptoms and up to 20 days for more severe cases.
Saturday will mark ten days since Trump was diagnosed with the virus, Conley said.
