President Donald Trump hinted that he may not even have been infected with coronavirus Thursday night, despite repeated coughing and pausing during an interview with Fox News.
During the phone interview, Trump said he hoped to hold an election rally in Florida as early as Saturday night, and that he hoped it could happen to one in Pennsylvania - two potentially crucial swing states.
The president returned to the White House earlier this week after being treated for Covid-19 at Walter Reed Medical Center and put his health at the center of the debate with the 2020 elections less than a month away.
After being asked a second time on Fox News whether he had undergone a follow-up test since his diagnosis, Trump said "the test will likely be tomorrow (Friday)."
"Because there is no reason to test all the time ... they found very few infections or viruses, if any - I didn't know they found any ... I didn't really bother with the doctors" said Trump, adding that he thinks "they (doctors) are amazed at how quickly this went."
The president noted that he currently feels he is "the most analyzed person in the world".
Mr Trump said he saw doctors Thursday, adding that he felt in good shape and that he would hold the rally in Florida "if it can be put together on time."
“I just saw the doctors today ... I'm in great shape. I took this Regeneron, it's phenomenal. If you go back a few months, no one thought of this stuff. We made it up. I'll have it taken to every hospital where we have sick people with the Covid. We will make people better. That actually made me better, "said Trump.
In a statement on Thursday, the president's doctors said he had been released to resume public engagement. Dr. Sean Conley said Mr Trump has shown no symptoms of coronavirus since leaving Walter Reed Medical Center on Monday.
In a statement, Dr. Conley, Mr. Trump responded to the experimental antibody cocktail and steroid treatment with no sign of side effects. He said that since returning home, Mr. Trump's "physical examination has remained stable with no evidence of disease progression".
