Trump Holds Florida Rally After White House Physician Reports Negative COVID-19 Tests

On Monday, White House physician Sean Conley said that President Trump had registered consecutive days in which he’s tested negative for COVID-19. The news came on the same date that Trump headed to a packed campaign rally in Sanford, Florida.

He added that those tests occurred “in context with additional clinical and laboratory data.”

Trump to host hundreds at White House Saturday, travel to Florida for rally Monday

(Bloomberg) — President Donald Trump will hold an in-person event at the White House on Saturday and a rally two days later in Florida, hosting his first public events since being hospitalized with Covid-19 and bucking criticism that the gatherings threaten to spread the virus further.

The South Lawn event on Saturday is expected to include a couple hundred guests, a person familiar with the matter said. The president will address the crowd from a distance, on the Blue Room balcony. On Monday, he plans to travel to Sanford, Florida, to address supporters, his campaign said in a statement.

The events come amid criticism that Trump’s decision to hold a crowded Sept. 26 Rose Garden ceremony — where he announced his pick of Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court — helped spark an ongoing coronavirus outbreak at the White House that has sickened several staffers. While the White House

Trump’s White House event had hallmarks of campaign rally

President Trump’s first public appearance since he announced his COVID-19 diagnosis appeared to be an unofficial rally at the White House. On Saturday, Mr. Trump addressed hundreds of supporters closely gathered and dressed in Trump campaign gear, repeating unfounded claims of election fraud, attacking Democratic leaders, and falsely claiming that Joe Biden is a socialist.

Oct. 10 (UPI) — President Donald Trump turned his first post-COVID public appearance into a campaign rally on the White House South Lawn Saturday, nine days after was hospitalized for the coronavirus infection.

Thanking supporters for prayers and well wishes for himself and the first lady, within minutes Trump had referred to his Democratic presidential opponent as “Sleepy Joe Biden,” had boasted about the border wall and delivered other material typical of a campaign speech.

“We gotta vote these people into oblivion. Into oblivion. Gotta get rid of ’em. So bad for our country,” the president said.

About 400 people attended the invitation-only event. Trump called the event a peaceful protest for law and order and blamed the “radical Socialist Left” for civil unrest in U.S. cities this summer.

Donald Trump has delivered a speech in front of cheering supporters at the White House in his first public appearance since being hospitalised.

The event was officially a “peaceful protest”, but looked, critics said, much like a Trump campaign rally.

The president, who says he is no longer taking medicines against Covid-19, told the crowd he was “feeling great”.

The White House has not provided an update on the president’s health since Thursday.

It is unclear whether the president remains contagious following his three-day hospital stay with Covid-19.

U.K.’s Tax-Fueled Housing Rally Shows Uneven Economic Rebound

(Bloomberg) — U.K. house prices posted their biggest annual gain since 2016 in September as a tax cut fueled a post-lockdown demand to move.

Values climbed 5% from a year earlier to an average of 226,129 pounds ($290,000), Nationwide Building Society said Wednesday. The report comes a day after Bank of England data showed mortgage approvals have hit a 13-year high.

The strong housing market contrasts with other parts of the economy, which are still struggling to recover from the coronavirus disruption as the U.K. government reimposes some restrictions on movement and leisure.
