Dr. Sean Conley, the physician to President Donald Trump, has reported on Tuesday that the Coronavirus-stricken President has “no symptoms.” This follows President Trump returning to the White House from Walter Reed Medical Center on Monday after his four-day stay at the military hospital.
“This morning the President’s team of physicians met with him in the Residence. He had a restful first night at home, and today he reports no symptoms,” Dr. Conley’s statement reads. “Vital signs and physical exam remain stable, with an ambulatory oxygen saturation level of 95-97%. Overall he continues to do extremely well, I will provide updates as we know more.”
The president and the First Lady both tested positive for the novel Coronavirus late on Thursday, alongside many political figures and staffers. While the exact event where President Trump contracted the virus remains unclear, one of the leading hypotheses posits that it occurred at the event where he announced his Supreme Court nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Since many of those who were also infected attended the event, many place this as the “superspreader” event.
When he tweeted on Monday afternoon that he would be returning to the White House, President Trump also urged Americans to not “be afraid of Covid.”
It is still unknown when President Trump will return to the campaign trail. With the presidential election less than 30 days away, and with the standard length of quarantine for the virus lasting 14 days, this is a major obstacle for the incumbent president, who has throughout the pandemic continued to hold large-scale in-person rallies and events.
The president has stated, however, that he intends on still participating in the second presidential debate, saying that he’s “looking forward” it.
The debate is scheduled for Thursday, October 15 in Miami and will air from 9 to 10:30 pm (Eastern Standard Time). The first and only vice-presidential debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) will happen Wednesday, October 7 in Salt Lake City, Utah and will air from 9 to 10:30 pm (Eastern Standard Time).

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
