US President Donald Trump has declared that he is healthy enough to return to his presidential campaign trail, and will do so with a visit to Florida on Monday.
Over the weekend, President Trump declared he was healthy enough to get back to work, with the White House also stating that he was no longer at risk of transmitting COVID-19, which he was diagnosed with on October 1.
In a memo released Saturday night by the White House, Navy Cmdr. Dr. Sean Conley said Trump met the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria for safely discontinuing isolation and that by “currently recognized standards” he was no longer considered a transmission risk. The memo did not declare Trump had tested negative for the virus.
In an interview on Fox News on Sunday, Trump declared that he was “immune” to COVID-19.
His first campaign stop following his diagnosis will be held at the Sanford Orlando International Airport at 7 p.m.
Over the weekend, thousands of Trump supporters in South Florida came out in droves to rally for Trump’s re-election.
The parade, called the ‘Anti-Communist Caravan for Freedom and Democracy’, convened on the streets near the Magic City Casino and Little Havana. Thousands of cars were reported to have participated in the parade.
