Update (1444ET): The White House is keeping up a steady drumbeat of leaked comments trying to build anticipation for President Trump’s first public remarks since his first positive COVID-19 test.

  • TRUMP WILL SOON SPEAK WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, AIDE SAYS
  • DEFINITE METHOD, TIME NOT SET FOR TRUMP ADDRESS: MORGENSTERN

Though a time and venue have not yet been chosen.

Earlier, CBS News reported that Trump and his team had filmed another one of the videos that Trump released via Twitter over the weekend inside the White House.

In the latest update on President Trump’s condition, Navy Commander Dr. Sean Conley revealed that Trump hasn’t had a fever in 4 days, and that he’s been symptom-free (aside from a few brief bouts of ‘roid rage-inspired tweeting) for 24 hours.

Trump’s vital signs, including oxygen saturation, are all normal, and Trump hasn’t needed any supplemental oxygen since his blood-oxygen level dropped below 94% on Friday.

Notably, the president’s labs have begun to detect the presence of antibody production, compared with his initial positive Thursday night, where antibodies weren’t detected.

The news comes as CBS News reports that Trump and his team have recorded another video of Trump – this time from inside the White House (Trump is supposed to be confined to the West Wing) – and are reportedly weighing whether to publish it.

Meanwhile, aides for the president have told reporters that Trump is still insisting on debating Joe Biden in person next week. There’s even been talk of agreement on using safety precautions like plexiglass.

With the presidential calendar still blank, Trump has been firing off tweets at a pretty steady clip all day, slowing only slightly as we head into the afternoon.

After Trump knocked stocks into the red with a single tweet Tuesday afternoon, the market has continued to rip higher, juiced by Trump’s calls for smaller tactical stimulus bills. Trump received his final dose of remdesivir Tuesday evening at the White House.
