President Trump Holds First Public Event Since Coronavirus Diagnosis

President Donald Trump held his first public event on Saturday since he was diagnosed and hospitalized with the coronavirus, sparking fresh criticism that the president was not taking the pandemic seriously and was all too willing to put his supporters and staffers at risk of the highly contagious virus. Hundreds of guests from around the country filed onto the South Lawn Saturday afternoon as Trump spoke briefly from a White House balcony. Attendees were not tested for Covid-19 and social distancing was not enforced. While more people appeared to be wearing face masks than at past Trump events, it was not required.
