President Donald Trump will hold campaign rallies virtually amid his diagnosis of the novel coronavirus, according to a statement tweeted by his reelection Campaign’s Director of Press Communications Erin Perrine.
“All previously announced campaign events involving the President’s participation are in the process of being moved to virtual events or are being temporarily postponed,” the statement from Trump’s campaign manager reads. “In addition, previously announced events involving members of the First Family are being temporarily postponed. All other campaign events will be considered on a case-by-case basis and we will make any relevant announcements in the days ahead.”
President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will quarantine in the White House as they deal with the Coronavirus. Both, as of right now, are reported to only have minor symptoms, according to the Associated Press.
Regarding Vice President Mike Pence, the statement continues, saying: “Vice President Mike Pence, who has tested negative for COVID-19, plans on resuming his scheduled campaign events. Any further information about the President will come from the White House.”
This is a serious shake-up for Trump’s campaign strategy, which, throughout the pandemic, has featured numerous, large, in-person rallies and events. His campaign has also continued to operate an aggressive door-knocking campaign. Trump being cooped up in the White House for many days will certainly remove him from valuable time on the campaign trail, with 32 days until the election.
Democratic presidential nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden, and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), have both tested negative for the virus.

“And I can tell you the time I spent with hundreds of workers walking up and down that line it was stunning to see how they had turned on the administration none of them actually bought the visit they thought it was more political than it was supportive” she added about her discussions with workers on the ground.
“It’s all about votes, trying to get votes” said one worker. “It’s a show” said another. Individuals also lamented “they didn’t forget about us During the pandemic. We were building cars and trucks, we were working” only to be left behind now.
Carter said it was evident that immediately after the brief show of “support” Biden immediately left, and got straight on his plane to head to Silicon Valley for a fundraiser.
