President Trump And Family Cancel All In-Person Events Due To COVID Diagnosis; Pence To Continue Appearances
President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign has announced that they are postponing all in-person events involving the president and his family, after he and the first lady tested positive for coronavirus early on Friday morning.
Officials are now trying to figure out how they can go about getting the president’s message out to voters during this final month of the election cycle, before we all head to the polls at the beginning of November. If possible, events will be held virtually.

The president was due to meet supporters at his Washington hotel on Friday before flying to Orlando for an airport rally. More events were scheduled for Saturday in Wisconsin and Philadelphia on Sunday.
Campaign manager Bill Stepien said: “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. In addition, previously announced events involving members of the First Family are also 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. Vice President Mike Pence, who has tested negative for COVID-19, plans on resuming his scheduled campaign events.”
While it’s critical the president’s message gets out, right now, the most important thing is his health and safety, along with his family’s, so recovery should be his main focus at this point.
Please be in prayer for our president and the first lady. This illness is no joke for folks in his age range, though the odds of him making a full recovery with no complications is very high.
