First Lady Melania Trump has canceled her first campaign appearance at the side of US President Donald Trump in almost two months. Melania Trump suffered from a “persistent cough” and would not travel out of caution, said her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham. But after her recovery from Covid-19, she is doing better every day. Melania Trump was supposed to accompany her husband to his campaign event on Tuesday evening (local time) in Erie in the embattled state of Pennsylvania.
Melania Trump last campaigned for the re-election of her husband with a speech in the Rose Garden of the White House at the Republican Party Conference on August 25. Otherwise she was noticeably reticent during the election campaign. Other Trump family members, on the other hand, appear again and again in the election campaign. Republican Trump will take on Democratic challenger Joe Biden on November 3rd. Biden is currently ahead in polls.
Melania (50) and Donald Trump (74) had tested positive for the corona virus at the beginning of the month, according to the White House. The 14-year-old son Barron was also infected, but remained symptom-free, according to his mother. Donald Trump was treated in the hospital for three nights. In the meantime, however, he has returned to the election campaign at full speed and sometimes completes several events a day. Melania Trump described the course of her illness in a message from last week as “a roller coaster of symptoms”.
Obama speaks at drive-in event
In Pennsylvania, too, ex-President Barack Obama will hold his first election campaign event in favor of his former deputy Joe Biden on Wednesday. The first black president in US history will appear in the city of Pennsylvania at a drive-through event where the audience will remain in their cars because of the corona pandemic.
Obama, highly respected by the Democrats, had already video messages behind Biden, who had served him as Vice President for eight years. The 59-year-old has also taken part in online campaign fundraising events.
