Trump’s confusing stance on a coronavirus stimulus package, which seemingly changed by the hour, follows his return from Walter Reed by helicopter on Monday night after his Covid-19 diagnosis.

The home-bound Trump this week refused to participate in the reconfigured upcoming debate on October 15 — now virtual, in-part due to Trump’s own Covid-19 diagnosis. Trump said, “I’m not going to waste my time on a virtual debate,” though Friday’s interview with Limbaugh outlasted a 90-minute debate window.
The Point: Despite Trump’s rosy projections, the coronavirus is still very much an issue for both the nation and the President.
