    Trump coughs during phone interview and appears to mute his mic

    Trump coughs during phone interview and appears to mute his mic – leading to fears for the president’s health despite glowing doctor’s note praising his vitals

    • Trump coughed at least once in the 30-minute phone interview on Thursday
    • At another point he appeared to mute his mic after sounding hoarse
    • Trump’s doctor earlier issued a memo clearing him for public duties Saturday
    • President said he plans to hold a rally in Florida Saturday and another Sunday 

    President Donald Trump coughed at least once during a 30-minute phone interview on Thursday night, and appeared to mute his mic at another point after clearing his throat.

    The interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity came nearly a week after Trump revealed his coronavirus diagnosis, and in it he revealed that he has yet to test negative for the virus.

    First, a few minutes into the interview as he was discussing the presidential debates, Trump began to sound hoarse and cleared his throat. Several seconds of silence followed, before Trump said ‘excuse me’ and continued speaking.

    Then, about 19 minutes into the interview, as he was slamming mail-in voting, Trump cleared his throat and then audibly coughed, before continuing speaking.

    In the interview, Trump said that he plans to hold a rally in Florida this weekend, after his doctor said he will be able to return to ‘public engagements’ on Saturday. 

    ‘I think I’m going to try doing a rally on Saturday night, if we have enough time to put it together. But we want to do a rally in Florida, probably in Florida on Saturday night,’ Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity in a phone interview on Thursday.

    Trump added that he was considering a second rally in Pennsylvania for Sunday night. He did not specify exact locations for the planned events.

    He said that he had not tested negative for coronavirus since his positive result last week, adding that there was ‘no reason to test all the time’ and saying ‘probably the test will be tomorrow.’

    ‘They found very little infection or virus,’ Trump said, but it was unclear what kind of test or on what what date he was referring to. At two points in the 30-minute interview, Trump was heard coughing, at one point appearing to mute his phone line.

    Saturday would mark nine days since Trump publicly announced testing positive for COVID-19.

    Most scientists think that viral shedding continues for about 10 days after symptoms start in mild to moderate cases, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  

    It came soon after White House Physician Dr. Sean Conley released Trump’s vital signs for the first time since he became infected, showing a pulse, blood pressure, and blood oxygen level all within normal ranges.

    Conley also stated that Trump’s medical team felt that he would be safe to return to public engagements by Saturday. 

    Trump was first diagnosed with COVID-19 last Thursday, and was moved to Walter Reed Medical Center on Friday before returning to the White House on Monday evening. 

    ‘Since returning home, his physical exam has remained stable and devoid of any indications to suggested progression of illness,’ Conley said in a memo released by the White House on Thursday night.

    ‘Overall he’s responded extremely well to treatment, without evidence on examination of adverse therapeutic effects,’ Conley added. 

    ‘Saturday will be day 10 since Thursday’s diagnosis, and based on the trajectory of advanced diagnostics the team has been conducting, I fully anticipate the President’s safe return to public engagements at that time.’ 

    The memo showed Trump’s resting pulse was 69 beats per minute, which is considered a good rate for his age. 

    His blood pressure of 127/81 mm Hg is slightly elevated over normal levels, but does not qualify a hypertensive.

    Conley said that Trump’s breathing rate was normal, and that his blood oxygen level was 96 to 98 percent without supplemental oxygen, which is well within the normal range.

    Curiously, the memo did not include Trump’s body temperature. Last week, Trump reportedly spiked a fever, and his blood oxygen level dropped alarmingly, leading to his transfer to Walter Reed. 

    The memo also did not say whether Trump had tested negative for COVID-19. 

    In the interview with Hannity, Trump said that he had not been tested for coronavirus because there was ‘no reason yet’ but that he would probably get a test on Friday.
