Trump asks campaign to schedule daily events for him until election: report

President TrumpDonald TrumpWhat blue wave? A close look at Texas today tells of a different story Democrats go down to the wire with Manchin Trump's former bodyguard investigated in NY prosectors' probe: report MORE has asked campaign advisers to schedule numerous events and get him on the road "every single day" between now and the election, Axios reported Sunday.

The reported busy schedule would come as Trump is recovering from a hospital stay and diagnosis of COVID-19. A White House physician said in a memo to reporters Saturday the president was no longer a risk to transmit the coronavirus to others.

The Trump campaign did not return a request to respond to Axios's reporting. Campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh told The Hill that the president "has personal experience with COVID and understands what people are going through."


Some advisers to the campaign slammed the potential strategy in anonymous statements to Axios, with one telling the news outlet that Trump "really f---ed up with seniors when he said not to worry about the virus and not to let it control your life."

"There are so many grandparents who’ve gone almost a year without being able to see grandchildren," the adviser reportedly continued.

Another adviser, speaking to Axios on the condition of anonymity, was more blunt about the president's chances of surviving a stressful schedule while recovering from the virus: “He’s going to kill himself.”
