Trump returns to campaign trail
President Donald Trump is back to his normal healthy self, speaking for more than an hour at a campaign rally in Florida on Monday. It was his first political trip since being treated for the coronavirus.
“It’s great to be back in my home state, Florida, to make my official return to the campaign trail,” he said.
Trump told the crowd that he feels great after being off the campaign trail for a week recovering from the virus. He praised his medical team and said Americans can feel safe knowing that there is a treatment for COVID-19 and vaccines on the way.
“I am so energized by your prayers and by your support and here we are!” Trump said. “I went through it. Now they say I’m immune. I feel so powerful I’ll walk into that audience. I’ll walk in there, I’ll kiss everyone in that audience. I’ll kiss the guys and the beautiful woman. I’ll just give you a big fat kiss.”
The president also took an opportunity to express his condolences to the thousands of American families who have lost loved ones to COVID-19.
“Sympathies from all of us to those people whose family members have died,” he said.
Trump again spoke to the importance of electing Republicans who will restore law and order in America and not allow the far left to take over.
“While Biden will surrender your jobs to China, we will never allow ourselves to even think about surrendering to the left-wing mob,” he said. “They are on the run. I am bringing our jobs back home and putting violent criminals behind bars.”
Democratic Nominee Joe Biden expressed his frustration with the president hitting the campaign trail so quick after having coronavirus and also for bringing large crowds together while the airborne virus is still spreading across the country.
“President Trump comes to Sanford today bringing nothing but reckless behavior, divisive rhetoric, and fear-mongering. But, equally dangerous is what he fails to bring: no plan to get this virus that has taken the lives of over 15,000 Floridians under control, no plan to protect Floridians’ health care amid his attacks against the ACA, and certainly no plan to mitigate the economic impact the pandemic is having on families across Central Florida,” Biden said in a statement.
Trump has a full week of campaign events scheduled. He travels to Pennsylvania on Tuesday followed by stops in Iowa and North Carolina later in the week.
