Bloomberg reported Friday that the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to freely discuss Trump Jr.’s schedule, said that the president’s son has tested negative for COVID-19 three times since his father’s diagnosis. 


According to Bloomberg, Trump Jr. is set to take part in a bus tour in Florida along with the mixed martial arts fighter Jorge Masvidal and Max Alvarez, the Cuban-American businessman who gave a speech at the Republican National Convention.

The tour, which kicks off Sunday at the Tampa Convention Center, will also make stops in Orlando and Coconut Creek.

Bloomberg reported that Trump Jr. will also appear at campaign fundraisers in North Carolina, Georgia, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Arizona and Nevada. 

Representatives for the Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill. 

The reported schedule is part of the Trump campaign’s “Operation MAGA,” a series of in-person and virtual campaign events to be held throughout the final month before Election Day. 

The campaign announced these plans last week as Trump continued to receive treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center, with the team describing “Operation MAGA” in a press release as “a full marshaling of top-level surrogates, campaign coalitions, and Trump supporters to rally behind the President and carry the campaign forward until the President returns to the trail.”
