Donald Trump meets the crowd at the White House, before a meeting in Florida
Nine days after testing positive for Covid-19, US President Donald Trump is addressing several hundred of his supporters at the White House on Saturday, with the hope of relaunching his campaign within four weeks of the election. His campaign team also announced that he would hold two more election rallies next week, in addition to the one in Florida on Monday: one in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, the other in Iowa on Wednesday. If he repeats that he feels "very well", his state of health remains shrouded in a certain mystery as the communication of his doctor Sean Conley - he seems especially eager to please his famous patient - has been opaque and not very rigorous. "I have not taken any more medication for about eight hours," assured the tenant of the White House on Friday evening, during his first filmed interview, broadcast on Fox News.
According to a source close to the organization of Saturday's event, all guests will have to wear a mask. In the early afternoon, several dozen people lined up to enter the White House, with the President's supporters' distinctive red caps on their heads. Many of them, however, were not masked.
