Trump first appearance since covid

On Sunday, US President Donald Trump’s doctors confirmed that he no longer had COVID-19, following which Trump made his first public appearance and addressed his supporters at the White House.

Sean Conley, Trump’s physician said in a statement that,

“Trump took a test on Saturday which showed that he was no longer a transmission risk to others.”

He further added the US President took an assortment of tests which showed there was no existence “of actively replicating virus.”

However, the White House made no comment on Conley’s statement as he did not mention whether Trump had tested negative for coronavirus or not.

On his first public appearance after being tested for COVID-19, the Republican president spoke from the White House balcony without wearing a mask.

“I passed the highest test, the highest standards, and I’m in great shape,” said Trump.

It is pertinent to mention here that US President was shifted to the hospital in October for COVID-19 treatment and he returned on Monday to the White House.

While addressing his supporters, largely Black and Latino, most wearing masks but not respecting social distancing guidelines, Trump urged them to vote for him in the Presidential election on November 3.

“I beat this crazy, horrible China virus,” he said adding he was no longer on medications for the coronavirus.

He went on to say that “it seems like I’m immune.”

According to the details, Trump plans to visit, Pennsylvania, and Iowa, on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

“I’m feeling great,” he told the crowd.
