President Donald Trump made his return to the campaign trail on Monday after battling COVID-19 earlier this month. The President spoke a large crowd of approximately 7,000 people at an airport hangar in Sanford, Florida. As expected, he addressed his recent illness and what he had learned from it.
“We are going to take whatever the hell they gave me and we are going to distribute it to hospitals,” he said.
“They say I’m immune. I feel so powerful. I’ll walk into that audience, I’ll walk in there, kiss everyone in that audience. I’ll kiss the guys and the beautiful women.”
This is Trump's second public appearance within the last five days. Over the weekend, he hosted a "Blexit" rally supported by Candace Owens. While speaking, he also vaguely commented on the status of a COVID-19 vaccine.
"I want you to know our nation is going to defeat this terrible China virus, as we call it. And we’re producing powerful therapies and drugs, and we’re healing the sick, and we’re going to recover," he said.
"And the vaccine is coming out very, very quickly, in record time, as you know. It’s coming out very, very soon. We have great, great companies doing it, and they’ll be distributing it, and we will — through our military — very, very rapidly."
As the former reality television show host continues his campaign, his doctors refuse to reveal when he first tested positive and if he has tested negative since leaving the hospital. Rather, doctors have reported that he is no longer at risk of transmitting the virus.
"This evening I am happy to report that in addition to the President meeting CDC criteria for the safe discontinuation of isolation, this morning's COVID PCR sample demonstrates, by currently recognized standards, he is no longer considered a transmission risk to others," Navy Commander Dr. Sean Conley stated.
President Donald Trump is set to participate in another rally in Pennsylvania on October 13 at 7 p.m. ET.
