Trump Tests Negative For COVID-19, Is Not Infectious - White House Physician

"Someone said to me the other day, "you're the most famous person in the world by far.' I said, "no, I'm not". they said, 'who's more famous?' I said, 'Jesus Christ", Trump said, prompting cheers from supporters. That means I can't get it (immune), and can't give it. "Very nice to know", Trump said in the tweet.

Trump said he was "immune" to the virus and later added that he felt "so powerful" with several in the crowd not wearing a mask.

The town hall, moderated by "TODAY" anchor Savannah Guthrie, will take place on the same evening - and at the same time - that Joe Biden is doing his own town hall event in Philadelphia on ABC News at 8 p.m. ET.

Sunday's effort was the latest by the president to spin his bout with the virus - which has killed over 214 000 Americans - as a political advantage. The US president was admitted in Walter Reed Hospital for three days after his virus was discovered.

But polls suggest that the infection of the president, first lady, and more than two dozen close associates in recent weeks has only reinforced concerns among voters who disapproved of the president's handling of the virus.

That confirmation comes as the president - who first disclosed his diagnosis on October 2 and was hospitalized for four days - has quickly resumed work in the Oval Office and ramped up campaign events where crowds have gathered without following social-distancing protocols and often without wearing masks. He's expected to visit Pennsylvania on Tuesday and Iowa on Wednesday for campaign events. Trump's physician said on Saturday the president had taken a test showing he was no longer infectious.
