This source confirmed, on condition of anonymity, a report in the American media, which reported that the President of the United States will speak on security issues during an outside meeting.
Donald Trump will speak from the White House balcony to abide by the rules of physical distance. A
On Monday, President Donald Trump will hold his first election rally in Florida after he tested positive for COVID-19 last week, his campaign team announced on Friday, notes AFP.
The rally, which will take place in the city of Sanford, will be held 12 days after the announcement of his positive test.
The US president has repeatedly expressed his eagerness to run again in the November 3 election campaign, and his personal doctor has said he will be able to resume his “risk-free” public activities on Saturday.
U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell revealed Thursday that he has not been to the White House since August, citing a decision not to step in because the rules to limit the spread of coronavirus are not and have not been followed. “And now the price is being paid for it,” alluding to Trump’s illness, the BBC reports.
McConnell, 78, the head of the Republican senators and the main architect of their political strategy, says that he speaks frequently on the phone with President Trump, but he has not been to the White House since August 6. His comments come in the context of the White House becoming a hotbed of coronavirus infection.
The American senator, who survived the polio disease, contrasted the way the rules are observed in the Senate with the White House. In the upper house of Congress, lawmakers wear masks and distance themselves physically, unlike the White House.
Since Donald Trump was diagnosed with Covid-19, more than 30 people in the administration and his entourage have fallen ill, including White House spokeswoman and advisor Stephen Miller.
Two other Republican senators, Mike Lee and Thom Tillis, tested positive after attending a White House event, but it is still unclear whether they got the virus from there.
Asked by reporters on the subject, McConnell said that “their approach to how this issue should be handled is different from mine.” He also noted that “he did not think he was interested in protecting himself from this disease in a way that is already happening in the Senate.”
“It simply came to our notice then. Wearing a mask and distancing are the only ways we know to limit the spread, at least until we have a vaccine, ”McConnell said. He believes that the reason the US Senate is operating normally is to follow precautions and rules.
