President Trump’s re-election campaign announced the launch of “Operation MAGA,” which the campaign describes as “a full marshaling of top-level surrogates, campaign coalitions and Trump supporters, to rally behind the President until the he can return to the trail.”
The President is currently at Walter Reed medical center after announcing he had tested positive for Covid-19 early Friday morning. An attempt by his doctor to reassure the public about the President’s condition only created widespread confusion and concerns about transparency on Saturday, as a source familiar with Trump’s health told reporters the next 48 hours will be critical in determining how he fares.
While Trump is in hospital, Vice President Mike Pence will make in-person campaign appearances in key states, as will members of the first family.
“Operation MAGA will fire up the entire MAGA universe to keep President Trump’s campaign at full speed until our Commander-in-Chief returns to the campaign trail,” said Trump 2020 campaign manager Bill Stepien, who has also tested positive for coronavirus.
