Melania Trump Cancels Campaign Rally Attendance Due To ‘Lingering Cough’ After COVID-19 Diagnosis

KEY POINTS

  • Melania Trump will not join President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Pennsylvania
  • The FLOTUS canceled her attendance due to a lingering cough
  • Donald and Melania tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month

Melania Trump was supposed to join a campaign event for President Donald Trump in Pennsylvania, but the first lady decided to cancel her attendance due to a lingering cough.

The POTUS announced earlier this month that he and his wife tested positive for coronavirus. However, the president immediately recovered and has since returned to attending rallies. Melania’s attendance in Pennsylvania would have been her first public appearance after recovering from COVID-19 and her first appearance in more than a year since June 2019. However, she changed her mind and decided to just skip the event due to a lingering cough.

“Mrs. Trump continues to feel better every day following her recovery from COVID-19, but with a lingering cough, and out of an abundance of caution, she will not be traveling today,” Melania’s spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, was quoted by Business Insider as saying Tuesday.

While Melania decided to just stay at home, her stepchildren have no qualms about making public appearances. Ivanka Trump will appear in Michigan, Wisconsin, North Carolina and Florida. Eric Trump and his wife will visit New Hampshire, Michigan, Nevada and Arizona. Meanwhile, Donald Trump Jr. will be traveling to North Carolina and Pennsylvania.

Last week, Melania got candid about her coronavirus experience when she wrote an essay about it. According to her, when she found out that she was COVID-19 positive, she immediately thought of their son, Barron. The 14-year-old initially tested negative but also contracted the virus after a few days.

“To our great relief he tested negative, but again, as so many parents have thought over the past several months, I couldn’t help but think ‘what about tomorrow or the next day?’ My fear came true when he was tested again and it came up positive,” she wrote.

“Luckily he is a strong teenager and exhibited no symptoms,” Melania continued before adding that her son has since tested negative.

The POTUS spent a couple of days at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center after his COVID-19 diagnosis. Trump said he didn’t experience any symptoms.

Unlike Trump, Melania had body aches, cough and headaches. She was also extremely tired most of the time. But the FLOTUS has already recovered and is only taking caution due to her lingering cough that’s why she is skipping the campaign event in Pennsylvania.

Melania Trump cancels campaign trip due to ‘lingering cough’

Oct. 20 (UPI) — First lady Melania Trump canceled plans to attend a campaign rally for President Donald Trump on Tuesday due to a “lingering cough” from her bout of COVID-19, her chief of staff said.

Stephanie Grisham said the first lady is still recovering from her illness, nearly three weeks after her diagnosis.

“Mrs. Trump continues to feel better every day following her recovery from COVID-19, but with a lingering cough, and out of an abundance of caution, she will not be traveling today,” Grisham said.

The event in Erie, Pa., Tuesday night would have been the first lady’s first campaign event since the president’s White House speech as part of the Republican National Convention in August.

Melania Trump said last week she tested negative for the novel coronavirus after experiencing a “roller coaster” of symptoms, including body aches, cough, headache and fatigue. She said she chose a “more natural route” for her treatment, focusing on taking vitamins and eating healthy foods.

She also said the couple’s son, Barron Trump, tested positive for the virus, but has since tested negative.

The president, meanwhile, was hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., for three days after experiencing some breathing troubles brought on by COVID-19. Doctors treated him with an experimental antibody cocktail by Regeneron and remdesivir, an antiviral originally created to treat the Ebola virus.

Donald Trump is expected to give remarks at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Erie International Airport before returning to the White House.

Melania Trump says son Barron also had COVID-19 [Video]

In a personal post on the White House website, first lady Melania Trump for the first time shared details of her illness from COVID-19 and revealed that — in addition to her and President Donald Trump – their 14-year-old son, Barron, also tested positive for the virus but exhibited no symptoms.

Trump kept his comment’s brief on his sons health on his way to a rally in Iowa.

TRUMP: “Barron’s fine.”

Melania Trump said Barron initially tested negative but then was positive, calling him a “strong teenager” who exhibited no symptoms. He has since tested negative.

She also said her symptoms were “minimal,” writing: “I experienced body aches, a cough and headaches, and felt extremely tired most of the time.”

Her husband, meanwhile, spent three nights in a military hospital. He underwent several treatments, one of which is used in the most extreme COVID cases.

Mrs. Trump says she opted for vitamins and healthy food.

The first lady said in “one way” she was glad the three went through the ordeal at the same time so they could take care of one another and spend time together.
