Melania Trump to make 1st public appearance since virus diagnosis at Pennsylvania rally
It was not immediately clear if the first lady also planned to address Trump supporters in Erie
Melania Trump plans to make her first public appearance since recovering from coronavirus disease on Tuesday, joining President Donald Trump at a Pennsylvania campaign rally.
It was not immediately clear if the first lady also planned to address Trump supporters in Erie.
The Pennsylvania rally will be the first campaign trail appearance for Mrs. Trump since she spoke briefly at a June 2019 event in Orlando, Florida, where the president launched his reelection effort.
She addressed the Republican National Convention in August from the White House.
Mrs. Trump recently announced that she has recovered from a bout with COVID-19 that included headaches, body aches and fatigue. She also revealed that the couple’s 14-year-old son, Barron, had contracted the virus, never had symptoms and has since tested negative.
Mrs. Trump’s spokeswoman says she also plans to attend Thursday’s presidential debate in Nashville, Tennessee.
On Sunday night in Carson City, Nevada, Trump addressed thousands of supporters who sat elbow to elbow, cheering him and booing Joe Biden and the press. The vast majority wore no masks to guard against the coronavirus, though cases in the state are on the rise, with more than 1,000 new infections reported Saturday.
The Republican president, as he often does, warned that a Biden election would lead to further lockdowns and appeared to mock Biden for saying he would listen to scientists.
“He’ll listen to the scientists. If I listened totally to the scientists, we would right now have a country that would be in a massive depression,” Trump said.
