Trump looking to resume campaign events despite recent COVID diagnosis

Description:

President Trump is pushing to hit the campaign trail as early as tomorrow despite concerns over his recent COVID-19 diagnosis. His doctor says he's stable and doing well, but it's unclear if he's still contagious. CBS News White House correspondent Ben Tracy joins CBSN to explain the latest developments.


Donald Trump's physician released the latest update on the president's progress: He says that Trump has finished his course of therapy. He also says the president can safely return to public engagements this Saturday. Aired on 10/08/2020
U.S. President Donald Trump will resume in-person campaigning on Saturday after being sidelined by a case of COVID-19, but a debate next week against his presidential election opponent Joe Biden was canceled because Trump refused to participate.
"This is personal cruelty. This is a person who is sick, infecting others physically adjacent to him because he needs to fill the hole in his soul," says Sen. Schatz of Pres. Trump returning to the White House despite his Covid-19 diagnosis. Aired on 10/06/2020
Just a week after he was hospitalized for COVID-19 and without proof of a negative test, the president says he aims to speak with supporters Saturday from the White House balcony.
