President Donald Trump, fresh out of the hospital and currently still infected with COVID-19, reportedly aims to return to the campaign trail on Monday.

According to Bloomberg and ABC News, the Trump campaign has begun hammering out plans for Trump to visit Pennsylvania that day.

Bloomberg reported that Trump is also planning to stop in Michigan on Tuesday and potentially Florida on Friday.

Those exact plans have reportedly not been finalized. However, Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien announced on Thursday morning that the President will be holding a rally instead of participating in the upcoming debate with Democratic candidate Joe Biden on October 15 in response to the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) changing the debate to a virtual format out of safety concerns.

Several hours after leaving Walter Reed Medical Center on Monday, Trump vowed he would be “back on the Campaign Trail soon!!!”
