The November presidential election — less than one month away — was thrown into uncertainty last week, when President Trump announced that he and the first lady tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis prompted the White House to cancel previously scheduled campaign events, temporarily sidelining the president as his re-election campaign enters the final stretch of the race against Democratic rival Joe Biden.

President Trump:

After a three-day stint at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to undergo treatment for COVID-19, Trump left on Monday evening for the White House, where he will continue to be treated for the virus and be closely monitored by a team of physicians.

“One thing’s for certain: Don’t let it dominate you,” Trump, who had special access to experimental drug treatments, said in a video posted to Twitter about his experience. “We have the best medical equipment, we have the best medicines, all developed recently. I know there’s a risk, there’s a danger, but that’s OK.”

Trump said he planned to return to the campaign trail “soon.”
