President Trump confirmed on Tuesday that he will participate in the upcoming presidential debate, after being briefly hospitalized for coronavirus infection.
“I am looking forward to the debate on the evening of Thursday, October 15th in Miami,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “It will be great!”
White House spokeswoman Alyssah Farah confirmed the decision in an appearance on Fox News.
Trump was hospitalized with COVID-19 at Walter Reed Medical Center on Friday, after his blood oxygen levels dropped and White House physicians were compelled to administer supplemental oxygen. However, doctors approved the president’s return to the White House on Monday following improvements in his condition.
